Playtabase develops the gesture controlled wrist apparatus Reemo which speaks with various smart home connected devices to “fundamentally improve the way people interact with their surroundings.”
Led by CEO Al Baker, the venture will officially start in three days and run for 14 weeks before a demo day come mid-august at Health:Further. As part of the program, Playtabase gains $100k in funding to add to the $400k the’ve stacked from angels, partners — and even a previous accelerator.
Baker had this to say about the news:
“We are extremely excited to join JSF. They have strong ties to our home health community and they know how to get product into people’s hands. While all accelerators are generally focused on making companies fundable, not every accelerator brings expertise in building a sales and distribution model. 2014 was about designing and building, while 2015 is about revenue and traction. Jumpstart Foundry is the best group for us now to bring Reemo to market with the right partners.”
