AceUp is a talent management platform that empowers emerging leaders to grow personally and professionally through high-quality executive coaching, powered by technology. A Techstars venture, their mission is to help high-potential leaders develop the skills, personal habits, and confidence they need to succeed in their role and support their organization’s growth. They leverage technology to seamlessly deploy executive coaching at scale throughout an entire organization, optimize the coach pairing process, and measure the impact of coaching on employees’ skills development.

For Homeowners in the digital age who want to accurately manage their largest asset, HomeBinder provides a centralized hub that is automatically updated by an ecosystem of service providers. HomeBinder went to market through home inspectors who pay a monthly subscription to gift a pre-configured HomeBinder account to their clients. By doing so we are generating half a million dollars annually and creating 200,000 homes per year. Going forward, HomeBinder will pull together Home Service Providers and Homeowners by automatically logging what was done on the home through integrations with the software home pros use to run their business. Ultimately, the objective is a home record platform that is an expected component in all future home transactions much like a Carfax for used cars.
