Techstars Chicago invests in delivery ‘game-changer’ Routific

July 7, 2015

We’re so excited to announce that Routific is expanding its U.S. operations after receiving a strategic investment from Techstars Chicago.

We beat out ~800 teams to earn a spot in this year’s exclusive cohort and will spend the next four months scaling up our business in the windy city while going through a rigorous mentorship program featuring some of the top venture capitalists and entrepreneurs in the country.

“We chose Routific because we know the company is going to be a real game-changer. The delivery space is red hot, and there’s a desperate need for smart logistics platforms,” said Troy Henikoff, Techstars Chicago managing director. “We love investing in companies that are poised to make a huge impact in the world.”

The timing is perfect. We recently launched a new route optimization platform (featured in TechCrunch and The Next Web) that is already optimizing hundreds of thousands of routes for delivery companies around the world.

“Chicago is the perfect place for us to grow our business,” said Marc Kuo, our Founder & CEO.

“The city is buzzing with logistics companies, forward-thinking SMBs, and delivery startups that recognize the need for smart route optimization tools. We’re honored to be a part of this dynamic and vibrant ecosystem.”

Honored indeed!
