2020 RAMP cohort chosen
Roanoke-based business accelerator program picks six startups
Roanoke-based business accelerator RAMP — the Regional Acceleration and Mentoring Program — announced the selection of six high-growth startups as part of its fourth round of training.
The companies are taking part in workshops that test the viability and marketability of their products before they enter a larger market. RAMP is focused on companies in the fields of science, technology, engineering, math and health. This year’s cohort includes:
- Abstract Assembly LLC, which designs and prototypes small satellites
- Itus Digital, which develops analytical software to assess risk in industrial equipment
- Local Food Network, a platform for wholesale buyers to buy food products from farmers and producers
- QuickTech, a software developer that has created a diagnostic tool to measure joints on patients with arthritis and other ailments
- Rendyr, a company that has designed a portable laser cutter, which cuts and engraves materials
- Yindividual, which has developed a “super-app” that allows locally owned companies to more easily compete with chains.
