Startups with RI Roots Make MassChallenge Final Cut

Only 128 finalists were selected from the 2,300 entrepreneurs all over the world who applied. Finalists with Rhode Island roots include:

  • Farmer Willie’s, a ginger beer startup cofounded by a Brown student
  • Fetch Park, a parking management app founded in Providence
  • Parkloco, a data analytics platform for parking facilities 
  • PICC Perfect, a stylish medical accessories startup created by Jamestown native and Rhode Island Business Plan competition winner Emily Levy
  • SalesBrief, a B2B sales platform co-founded by locals James Kwon and Ted Brown.
  • Technologies Against Assault, a sexual assault kit created by Brown students

“MassChallenge is a fantastic program. They’ve done an incredible job advancing the New England startup scene,” says Founders League’s Melissa Withers, who is also a MassChallenge mentor and judge. “I’m looking forward to supporting all of the finalists, but of course I have a special place in my heart for all of the companies that have local connections.”

R.I. was represented last year by Healthy Roots, Increment and XactSense, which won one of the $50K top prizes.

 

Congrats to all the finalists and good luck! Stay tuned this summer as these companies compete to win!
