Another couple startups have graduated from the Waterloo-based Accelerator Centre. Mozzaz and Plum have become the 44th and 45th graduates, now joining others including Axonify, Clearpath Robotics, Intellijoint Surgical, Miovision, Top Hat Monocle and Kik.
Mozzaz, which was founded by Rini Singh and Sammy Wahab, created various cloud-based services, including its app called TalkingTiles, that aims to “provide care everywhere.” The collaborative care solution helps those with intellectual developmental disability (I/DD).
Plum is targeting the employment space with its cloud-based hiring solution that “identifies job applicants with the highest potential and matches them to a company’s culture and position using the science of psychology.” The company was founded by Caitlin MacGregor, Neil MacGregor and Christine Bird who were “frustrated by their own hiring experiences.”
Paul Salvini, CEO of the Accelerator Centre, said, “Health and HR tech are two of the hottest and fastest growing segments within the start-up landscape and we are happy to be graduating innovative high potential companies in these markets.”
The Accelerator Centre is located within The David Johnston Research+Technology Park in Waterloo, Ontario, and was established to “accelerate the creation, growth, and maturation of sustainable new technology companies,” and also to “promote commercialization of research and technology rising out of academic institutions such as University of Waterloo, Wilfrid Laurier University, University of Guelph, and Conestoga College.” The Accelerator Centre launched in 2006 and has helped over 130 technology startups get off the ground, creating over 1,200 new jobs and generating over $400 million in revenue and funding.
