Back in January, we announced the launch of the Small Business Innovation Program, a new program designed to support entrepreneurs and startups as they solve problems for small businesses through the development of new products, features, and services.
We received over 100 applications for our first class of startups for the program, and today we’re happy to announce the four startups that will be joining us in our brand new SMB InnoLoft office space in our Waltham headquarters!
- mosaicHUB: A B2B community marketplace, mosaicHUB connects small businesses with experts they need to grow — including marketing, legal, and social media experts.
- OmniLync: OmniLync gives small businesses friction-free access to point-of-sale data, enabling small businesses to more easily deploy effective marketing campaigns and gain greater customer insights.
- Sidewalk: Sidewalk’s services utilize social data to predict which small businesses are most in need of particular solutions and when, helping unite small businesses with the exact technology providers they need to grow their business.
- The High Bar: The High Bar offers a custom-built SaaS solution called “Board on Track,” designed to help nonprofit boards better engage with board members and more effectively manage key systems and processes.
The program will begin on July 1st and run for four months.
Constant Contact will provide participants with mentoring from marketing and technology experts as well as access to members of the Angel and venture communities. Participants will also receive $10,000 to spend on marketing activities and will have priority access to Constant Contact’s AppConnect integration team. Constant Contact is taking no equity in any of the startups.
We’re really excited to introduce our class to the SMB InnoLoft and get going on helping them take their business to the next level.
They all offer excellent services for small businesses right now, and if you are interested, we definitely recommend checking out their websites.
We’ll keep you updated on their progress and all the work that’s being done at the InnoLoft. As startups, these companies face many of the same challenges of other small businesses, and through their experiences we hope to provide some excellent insight to help you do more business as well!
