Two Rev1 client companies, Kare Intellex and OYE! were each awarded $25,000 in validation investments from the nationally recognized non-profit Jumpstart Inc. The announcement was made at the Startup Scaleup Conference held in Cleveland in June.

In Crain’s Cleveland Business, JumpStart CEO Ray Leach noted that these awards are part of JumpStart’s efforts to broaden its focus to accelerate or advance ambitious and diverse entrepreneurs to transform entire communities.
