Julien moved to Montreal (in freezing cold Canada) and after a few weeks, Logrr was selected to be part of The Founder Institute (FI) spring chapter.

Logrr was selected for an advanced program from FI: Founderlab. We flew to Palo Alto for a week of meetings with big tech companies, VC’s and mentors. Logrr was the winner of the demo day.
A few weeks later, Startup Next (recently acquired by Techstars) selected Logrr for its pre-accelerator program. During this program, we met FI startup alumni and impressive mentors. The Logrr mentor network was growing fast and soon we had some amazing introductions and recommendations to Techstars in NYC for the Barclays Accelerator.
After multiple trips and intense interview process, it’s official: Logrr is a Techstars company. With 10 other startups, we are now working out of the RISE NYC location for the FinTech Barclays Accelerator. We are intensely building our company in preparation for an awesome demo day mid-October.
