MARCH 11 Startups:


Spinndle is a K12 project platform where students become a “just in time” community to bounce ideas off of, get feedback and better manage on their own. Spinndle streamlines planning, documentation, and assessment so teachers have one place to look.

Lucent BioSciences

Lucent Biosciences is on a mission to address climate impact on global food security and nutrition with a carbon-neutral smart fertilizer Soileos that regenerates the soil and delivers higher crop yields without runoff pollution.

Soileos is made by upcycling by-products from the food processing industry, creating a full circular economy from crop to fertilizer. Extensive field trials in 2019 and 2020 have shown significant increases in yield and nutrient density in crops grown with Soileos compared with competitive products.

Sales positions are difficult to fill and expensive to manage. The process for sourcing quality talent, verifying skills, training new hires, and managing a successful sales process is notoriously time-consuming and complicated. is the only marketplace for SMB’s to find, manage, and pay freelance sales pros, on-demand.
