Spoiler Alert Raises $11 Million to Accelerate Waste Prevention Efforts in the CPG Industry

The leading platform for B2B liquidation among CPG brands unveils rapid growth and new funding for further expansion

BOSTON, Dec. 01, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Spoiler Alert, the CPG industry’s leading digital platform for managing excess and short-dated inventory, today announced its $11 million Series A round of funding. This investment is led by Collaborative Fund with participation from existing investors, including Acre Venture Partners, The Betsy & Jesse Fink Family Foundation, Maersk Growth, Spring Point Partners, and Valley Oak Investments. 

This funding follows the rapid adoption of Spoiler Alert’s software solution over the past 12 months. In that time, the company has experienced over 400% growth in gross transaction value and zero customer churn. The platform is used by a growing list of global CPG leaders to digitize their B2B liquidation processes. Customers include Nestlé, Kraft Heinz, Campbell Soup Company, and Danone North America – four of the largest food & beverage manufacturers in the world.

Spoiler Alert’s success has risen in parallel with brands’ need to respond to supply chain volatility and the growing urgency of the climate crisis. « One of our core beliefs is that waste is no longer a necessary or acceptable cost of doing business, » said Spoiler Alert co-founder and chief product officer Emily Malina. « Everything we do is geared towards moving perishable inventory faster to benefit brands, retailers, consumers, and the planet. » By using technology and data in smarter ways, Spoiler Alert’s customers are proving that investments in waste prevention can have a material impact on both their corporate growth and sustainability targets.

Brands use Spoiler Alert’s flexible and private liquidation platform to seamlessly sell their excess, short-dated, and obsolete inventory. This results in increased profitability for brands and a stronger supply of opportunistic inventory for retailers and other closeout channels. « Danone North America has seen significant reductions in finished goods waste and higher returns on its markdown sales program through the introduction of Spoiler Alert’s liquidation platform, » says Camila Leal, senior manager, Zero Waste at Danone North America.

Spoiler Alert is also powering opportunistic purchasing for one of the fastest growing sectors in retail. This includes discount retailers like Ollie’s Bargain Barn and emerging direct-to-consumer companies like Misfits Market. « At Misfits Market, we’re building a new food value supply chain to make quality food more accessible and affordable for all, » states Daniel Litwin, vice president of procurement. « Spoiler Alert makes it easier and faster to collaborate with our vendors, expand our assortment of high-quality grocery products, and source great deals for our customers. »

Spoiler Alert will use this latest round of funding to continue expanding its team and solution offering. This includes investments in platform enhancements to move more inventory through diversified channels, as well as go-to-market efforts to support product category diversification. « Many Americans continue to depend on discount retail to fight food and hygiene insecurity, » said Ricky Ashenfelter, Spoiler Alert’s co-founder and chief executive officer. « I am very proud of what our team has built so far, and we look forward to empowering brands and retailers to continue building loyalty with cost- and climate-conscious consumers. » 

As part of this investment, Collaborative Fund’s founder and managing partner, Craig Shapiro, will join the company’s board. « We focus on high growth companies that are addressing critical trends in climate and food, » said Shapiro. « We are strong believers in what Spoiler Alert is building and are excited to activate our portfolio companies’ CPG experience to support their growth. »

The Startup Race Launches Audacious Accelerator Program and MVP Hackathon to Kick-Off its 2022 £10,000 UK Startup Race

The Six-Month ‘Gamified’ Startup Competition Benchmarks Ambitious Entrepreneurs Focusing on Sales Rather than Pitching Skills

EDINBURGH, UK, Nov. 30, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — The Startup Race Accelerator announced today it launched a call for submissions for its hackathon, a new opportunity in advance of its £10,000 Startup Race, which kicks off in early February 2022. Aspiring Entrepreneurs can access its free accelerator programme on Leanstack to prepare for the opportunity to recruit fellow co-founders during The Startup Race’s Minimum Viable Product (MVP) Hackathon and start growth hacking as a team to win a £10,000 cash prize.

“With The Startup Race, we are disrupting the standard model, known as ‘Pitching Parades.’ in order to enable entrepreneurs to prove themselves in both product and market fit, through sales and revenue,” said James Shoemark, co-founder of The Startup Race. “This team-building hackathon will be entirely virtual, but call for anyone working within the UK.”

This meritorious process, first developed by Silicon Valley Entrepreneur Steve Blank in 2013, is very attractive to Angel Investors. Through the process, there will be an opportunity for a number of high net-worth Individuals to observe how the teams perform over the course of the race and be introduced to those that they may wish to support at the end.

Between now and the Hackathon, up to 1,000 aspiring and experienced UK entrepreneurs are able to benefit from its free accelerator program on Leanstack because of a partnership with Ash Maurya, author of Running Lean and Scaling Lean.

Upon entry to the Accelerator, participants will gain access to the world’s best leanstart startup resources in order to validate their thinking, develop their business model and personal profile in order to attract co-founders. Other free resources on Leanstack will include the Foundations and Business Model Design Playbooks and Lean Canvas & Traction Roadmap tools. The Startup Race team will also help entrepreneurs incorporate their UK company and open a UK business bank account to enable them to start generating sales as soon as the competition starts. 

The team building Hackathon will run February 4 through 6, 2022, and is designed to establish the creation of more than 50 startup teams by giving entrepreneurs an opportunity to demo their business model to the other Hackathon participants and either recruit them to join their team or forgo their idea and join somebody else’s team. There will be 1st, 2nd & 3rd prizes for the best MVP Demo. The Startup Teams will then have two weeks until March 1st to create a Minimum Revenue Product (MRP) for the commencement of the £10,000 Startup Race. The competitors will also be given free access to LivePlan – the world’s fastest and easiest way to write a business plan, created by Palo Alto Entrepreneur, Tim Berry. Racers will be benchmarked based on a ¨Prime Metric¨ that ranks the top performers. Only the Premier League will be made public but all Racers will be able to access a private dashboard that reveals their current position and suggestions on how they could improve their ranking. 

“The £10,000 Startup Race measures what Entrepreneurs do over a period of time,” said Michael Clouser, co-founder of The Startup Race. “It is a highly competitive ‘pedal-to-the-metal’ approach that will see great value for both Entrepreneurs and Business Angel Investors over a short period of time.” 

The Startup Race idea began in 2014 when a young entrepreneur asked Mr. Shoemark, who was hosting a League of Entrepreneurs Meetup at the time, if and how the startup process could be gamified. Mr. Shoemark decided that a business competition using the Pirate Metrics (AARRR as popularised by Dave McLure) could be the answer. He soon teamed up with Michael Clouser, a former Silicon Valley VC and other Edinburgh based Entrepreneurs and Investors to partner with him on this new venture in order to support Fast Growth startups in the UK and around the world. 

Winners of The Startup Race will be announced during a ceremony in the Fall of 2022.  The 10,000 prize is non-dilutive and will be provided in the form of a grant from the Startup Race limited company to a limited company.

ABOUT THE STARTUP RACE

The Startup Race, based in the UK, is a hackathon and accelerator dedicated to proving that sales and revenue are the true benchmark of a successful startup, rather than the initial pitch. The event and company itself is the product of a young entrepreneur asking Mr. James Shoemark in 2014, how the startup process could be gamified. Mr. Shoemark decided that a business competition using the Pirate Metrics (AARRR as popularised by Dave McLure) of Acquisition, Activation, Retention, Referral and Revenue as a benchmark for ambition, competition and growth could be the answer. He soon teamed up with Michael Clouser, a former Silicon Valley VC and other Edinburgh based Entrepreneurs and Investors to partner with him on this new venture in order to support Fast Growth startups in the UK and around the world. The first £10,000 Startup Race will continue through the Autumn 2022, where a winner will be announced and awarded the £10,000 Cash Prize. After this Startup Race has completed, they will be partnering with Scottish Investors to run a £300,000 Startup Race and then a £1,000,000 International Startup Race.

Inspectify Secures $8 Million in Series A Funding

Inspectify Secures $8 Million in Series A Funding




Inspectify Secures $8 Million in Series A Funding

Series A round led by Nine Four Ventures will be used to accelerate development and capitalize on Inspectify’s explosive growth.

SEATTLE, Nov. 29, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Property inspection marketplace and software platform Inspectify has announced the close of its $8M Series A round, led by Nine Four Ventures. The round included participation from a consortium of VCs and strategic investors, including Foundation Capital, the HSB Fund of Munich Re Ventures, Redfin and Socially Financed, as well as prominent PropTech founders/executives Chase Gilbert and Nichole Wischoff (Built Technologies), Guy Gal (Side), Josh Stech (Sundae), Tushar Garg (Flyhomes), and Darren Nix (Steadily), among others.

Inspectify’s vision is to be the « API of the home » and create a digital twin for every property where property owners can better understand their home’s condition and how to care for it. As a result, they’ll know what repairs are needed, be able to price and book those repairs easily, have an up-to-date inventory of their home’s appliances and systems, and have access to maintenance records and schedules. 

Over the last 12 months, the company has grown by over 2500%, earning the trust of prominent real estate companies such as Redfin, Fundrise, Flyhomes, Sundae, Homie, Homelight, Properly, Mynd, Roofstock, and Orchard, also among others. 

« Inspections provide the most comprehensive and complex view of a home, yet the data is extremely unstructured and underutilized, » explained Founder and CEO Josh Jensen. « We’re challenging the status quo of a static PDF report to provide a higher quality inspection and better data that lives on with the property. » 

Jensen, a former Flyhomes executive and seasoned real estate investor, experienced the pain of manually managing inspections while buying and selling hundreds of homes first-hand. So he founded the company along with CTO Denis Bellavance, who was previously the founder and CTO of Peach and a former engineering leader at Zillow, Loftium, and Amazon.

Inspectify leverages its proprietary software to customize and integrate the data found within a home for individuals, institutional investors, and iBuyers well beyond the scope of a traditional property inspection. For non-institutional buyers, Inspectify’s streamlined approach and concierge-level service save hours typically spent searching for inspectors and coordinating schedules and access. 

An Inspectify inspection can also live on as a cloud-native ‘operating manual for the home’ that is left with a home buyer, often co-branded with a real estate brand or agent to establish meaningful and long-term relationships with buyers. In addition, Inspectify provides institutional investors and iBuyers with robust data sets and portfolio-level visibility of their assets, enabling them to increase the velocity and scale of transactions with confidence. 

« Data from inspections has long been underutilized due to the fragmented nature of the industry, » said Kurt Ramirez, General Partner, Nine Four Ventures. « Inspectify’s approach allows exponentially more fidelity and structuring of property data that is poised to fundamentally change how real estate is bought, sold, and managed. In just under two years, they have partnered with some of the most prominent real estate brands in the world, proving they have filled a massive need in the space. »

The funding will allow Inspectify to supercharge growth among its real estate partners and help launch new verticals with lenders, insurance carriers, appliance OEMs, and home services providers. Inspectify also plans to accelerate the development of its proprietary property inspection software to enable an even more robust and structured data set on every property inspected.

Ecobot Expedites Florida Wetland Delineations

Newest update aims to responsibly address project backlog following Florida’s takeover of wetland permitting.

ASHEVILLE, N.C., Nov. 19, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Construction tech company Ecobot announced today that it has launched its latest software update, which includes workflow optimization for pre-construction permitting in Florida.

The Florida Department of Environmental Protection (FDEP) assumed responsibility for the EPA’s Clean Water Act (CWA) Section 404 wetlands permitting program in December of 2020. Florida’s state-specific form, Form 62-340, is much longer and more complex than the wetland determination form used by the US Army Corps of Engineers (USACE). A backlog for pre-construction wetlands permitting has grown since. The newest version of Ecobot streamlines the FDEP 404 process and Form 62-340 using automated calculations, built-in QA, look-up tools, reference imagery, and a Florida-specific wetland plant list.

New technology like Ecobot enables environmental consultants to better assess the impact of the built environment on the natural environment. « I’m excited that our team has access to tools that can make their time in the field more efficient, » says Ecobot customer Kelley Samuels, PWS CERP, senior ecologist and certified project manager at AECOM’s Orlando office.

Also included in this update to Ecobot’s platform:

  • Updates to the National Wetlands Plant List (NWPL)
  • A new landform lookup tool derived from NRCS National Soil Survey Handbook
  • Integration with Bluetooth-enabled SXblue GPS devices

The newest version of Ecobot is now available in the Apple App Store.

About Ecobot
Ecobot is a cloud-based platform that enables customers in the architecture, engineering, and construction (AEC) industry to speed construction starts by optimizing mandatory environmental permitting. Ecobot enables its customers to leverage field data collected during permitting into massive improvements throughout the construction lifecycle. See how Ecobot can transform your pre-construction workflow at ecobotapp.com.

Intin, a Digital Healthcare Startup, Honored With the ‘CES Innovation Award’ for Technological Prowess in Healthcare

Intin, a Digital Healthcare Startup, Honored With the ‘CES Innovation Award’ for Technological Prowess in Healthcare

The Korean startup’s ‘Oview Multi Device’ is a respiratory diagnosis & treatment system that cuts down visits to hospital

LAS VEGAS, Nov. 18, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — The COVID-19 pandemic has brought healthcare to the forefront for the global community. Companies and businesses bringing in innovation in healthcare and developing digital healthcare platforms are sought after. Korean company Intin Inc. (https://intin.kr/en/) has been recently honored with the ‘Innovation Award’ from CES (Consumer Electronics Show) for its ‘Oview Multi Device’ product, a respiratory diagnosis and treatment system.

CES is the world’s biggest & influential tech event, held annually in the USA. Ahead of the CES 2022, to be held from January 5 to 8, the organization announced the CES 2022 Innovation Awards Honorees on November 10. Intin has been recognized for its outstanding design and engineering in healthcare technology. 

Diagnosis & treatment at home for respiratory conditions 

Intin’s innovation not only diagnoses respiratory ailments but also helps get proper treatment. With the ‘Oview Multi Device,’ anyone can receive a diagnosis of respiratory conditions and receive a doctor’s prescription through a mobile phone app to proceed with treatment. The treatment for respiratory infections is usually performed in the otolaryngology department that consists of temperature measurement, respiratory rate measurement, and nasal condition check. After diagnosis, the patient receives a prescription from a doctor for treatment. It involves performing nasal washing or inhalation, use of nebulizer (a device that inhales drugs in the form of a spray), and LED treatment depending on the condition. 

‘Oview Multi Device’ can easily perform all these procedures at home. Each diagnosis and treatment are possible while replacing the module in one main device. The measured data is linked to the hospital through the app, so the patient/user can receive a prescription such as « a few milliliters of nebulizer capacity, a few minutes of LED treatment, » and treatment after module replacement. 

Intin to target U.S. insurance companies

Intin is planning to enter the U.S. market quickly with this award. Especially in the United States, hospitals are expensive and far away. In the case of respiratory diseases, long-term treatment is required, but many patients do not go to the hospital often because they have to travel for more than an hour and pay 200 USD (about 240,000 won) for treatment. Patients go to the hospital only when their condition becomes serious, so insurance companies also suffer from heavy hospital expenses.

Intin plans to penetrate the market with a focus on American insurance companies. This is because it is determined that the insurance fee can be lowered by distributing the product to the insured at a price much lower than the medical cost and preventing the disease from getting worse through tracking management. Talking about the US expansion plans, CEO Kim Ji-hoon said, « It will be possible to lower the insurance fee by distributing the product to insured persons at a much lower price than the cost of treatment for respiratory diseases and preventing the disease from getting worse through tracking management. »  The CES Innovation Award for Intin Inc. will now accelerate the company’s plans to do business in the U.S. market.

Earlier versions of the OHG technology have been utilized globally in clinics, major research facilities, and supported by corporate animal health partners, amassing over a million hours of clinic time to date. Voyce version 4 with substantial technological updates will be released in 2023.

About One Health Group:  One Health Group (OHG) is a medical technology innovator with a mission to bring breakthrough health diagnostics, therapeutics, monitoring, screening, and advanced analytics to market. Driven by seeking solutions to preventing needless animal and human illnesses, often attributable by a lack of health data, OHG has developed a patented mobile health assessment technology that uses intelligent sensors and artificial intelligence to provide personalized, context-based real-time health information. OHG’s goal is to provide a unique health platform that integrates animal, human, and environmental data, which are intrinsically linked.

Seebeckcell Technologies Joins Chevron Technology Ventures Catalyst Program

Seebeckcell Technologies Joins Chevron Technology Ventures Catalyst Program




Seebeckcell Technologies Joins Chevron Technology Ventures Catalyst Program

Seebeckcell Technologies aims to harness waste heat in industrial facilities enabling more robust and resilient monitoring networks.

HOUSTON, Nov. 02, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — SeebeckCell Technologies, a startup in the first class of the Rice Alliance Clean Energy Accelerator, today announced they are invited to participate in the Chevron Technology Ventures (CTV) Catalyst Program to develop further their technology platform designed to recover industrial waste heat energy, increasing energy consumption efficiency, and eliminating battery replacement in IoT applications.

The CTV Catalyst Program was launched in 2017 to accelerate the maturation of early-stage companies that demonstrate technology beneficial to the energy industry.

By meeting Catalyst Program milestones, Seebeckcell Technologies will progress toward an initial pilot product deployment for its technology platform to deliver power to methane sensors utilizing onsite waste heat.

Today, sensors used for equipment monitoring in remote locations often rely on batteries for power. Batteries are an expensive solution to the needs for remote, onsite power due to two predominant factors – high unit costs and person-hours covering travel into the field and replacement. The high associated costs limits the deployment of sensors in all remote environments, including subsea applications. SeebeckCell Technologies is providing an adaptive solution for onsite electrical power needs, potentially enabling a more robust and resilient monitoring network.

Current process with batteries is inefficient, which may cause environmental impacts because remote systems aren’t deploying sensors. SeebeckCell’s innovation may curb this impact by providing energy on-site.

« SeebeckCell is excited to be supported by Chevron, a technology leader in the energy market, » said Ali Farzbod, Ph.D., co-founder and CEO of Seebeckcell Technologies. « This is inspiring hope in the scientific community as we see Chevron continue to back commercializing academically developed technologies that provide potential solutions for addressing climate change. Through collaboration and partnership, we’re able to grow our startup and we’re grateful for participating in the Rice Alliance Clean Energy Accelerator that helped connect us with Chevron. »

About SeebeckCell Technologies (SCT)

Founded in 2020 at the University of Texas at Arlington by Ali Farzbod and his team, SeebeckCell is developing technologies to harness waste heat in various industrial facilities to provide onsite electrical power for IoT sensors and other instruments. SCT’s first product is a passive power generator utilizing ample waste heat in oil & gas operation facilities.

SCT’s innovation enables a higher (Unit Power per Weight) ratio, greener production, and is cost-effective and scalable due to its reliance on easy-to-source synthetic materials that do not require mining. SCT technology utilizes a liquid material compared to solids found in current tech, resulting in reduced product weight, opening new market applications such as Transportation and Space Energy Generation.
