SoapBox, Toronto

SoapBox, an enterprise SaaS company, recently raised a $3 million seed round from SBNY, Golden Venture Partners, and Accomplice (formerly Atlas Ventures).

SoapBox provides a software platform that connects business leaders with the insights of frontline employees.

This exchange of ideas increases employee engagement, improves business performance, and strengthens company culture.

 

Chef’s Plate, Toronto

Chef’s Plate wants to change how Canadians cook meals at home.

The Toronto based startup is tackling the meal-kit market with their recent $2 million financing round led by Emil Capital Partners with participation from BrandProject LP and existing investors.

The company, less than a year old, has grown into a 50-person workforce, experiencing double-digit growth week-over-week.

 

Beagle, Kitchener

Recently named one of Canada’s Top 20 Most Innovative companies, Beagle is a productivity tool that reads a legal contract, highlights the key information and provides instant focus on the things that matter.

While Beagle is awesome, “it’s not a lawyer,” and does not replace your own due diligence.

Beagle’s collaboration tools simply streamline negotiating with the ability to edit, annotate and assign tasks to others in the process.

 

OnPoint Sports, Kitchener

Fantasy football is huge and fantasy football fans are huge consumers of mobile data, whether it be stats, commentary, or video.

Unfortunately the NFL has not served the mobile market well. Their own NFL Mobile app has almost 50 million users and continues to get flamed by diehard fans that expect more.

Founded by Elisha Ferrara, Vitaliy Kondratiev, and Tyler Lyn, OnPoint’s mobile app promises access to thousands of live football stats faster than anyone else.

 

HealthWave, Ottawa

H​ealthWave’s technology platform revolutionizes the way health practitioners recommend and dispense natural health products and nutraceutical supplements to their patients.

HealthWave enables health professionals to prescribe and sell professional grade products, while avoiding the overhead of managing physical inventory.

Founded in 2012, HealthWave recently raised a $2 million round from angel investors to accelerate their growth in the USA.
