I am proud to announce that Design by Educators, Inc. (DBE, the maker of Quick Key) has been accepted to TiE Boston’s ScaleUp accelerator, Cohort 4. TiE ScaleUp is a highly-competitive accelerator for Boston-area companies that are beginning to scale their businesses. Cohort 4 is focused on software platform companies. DBE is in this group because of our QK X-change global item platform, which went into limited beta earlier this week.
The First Event
Last night (September 27th, 2017) I had the pleasure of attending the first event of the 5-month program, the “Mentor Meet and Greet,” where I got a chance to get to know the other companies in Cohort 4 as well as some of the mentors, and the leadership at TiE Boston and ScaleUp. The leadership and the mentors are passionate about TiE, and each one of them is highly accomplished in their field. It is an honor to be a part of this group. All of us at QK are looking forward to a transformative 5 months ahead!
Come to the Kickoff!
TiE will be hosting the program Kick-Off Event on October 18th in Kendall Square, Cambridge, right around the corner from Quick Key’s office at One Broadway. You can book tickets at https://hub.tie.org/e/tie-scaleup-cohort-4-welcome-party
