Rokk3r Update: September 30

By September 30, 2020 Insight

Rokk3r’s global idea-to-exit ecosystem is enabling innovation and economic growth as the world battles multiple uncertainties. I’m sharing a few notes from around the ecosystem:

  1. AI Venture Builder, our dedicated artificial intelligence micro portfolio vehicle has raised additional funding to progress its companies through the cobuilding process. From serving over 1 million Shopify merchants via Graphpath, to serving the projected 12B insurance fraud detection market via Detecta.ai, to easing a no-turning-back work from home enterprise shift through knowledge management company Ontogen, we are proud to deliver value creation in the AI vertical through these 3 outstanding companies.
  2. SoStereo worked with Budlight to help them find the right music for a new product campaign. This time, SoStereo connected Budlight with a track called “Wanna Shine” by James Lindsey featuring Otis Junior. SoStereo helps brands find music that takes creative to the next level. Their mission is to share the power of unreal music by real artists with other creative professionals, and to make it affordable and available on demand.
  3. Our Spanish-language entrepreneurship course welcomed close to 300 new students last week. Learn more by visiting the Spanish course page here, and take a look at the course in English here.
