Atlanta-based innovation and corporate venture platform Engage VC has selected no-code document automation provider Kim Technologies as one of the eight startups in its Cohort 11 accelerator. Engage provides capital and mentorship to startups that have the potential to transform the corporate enterprises they serve.
Over the next 10 weeks, the startups will participate in Engage’s go-to-market accelerator that connects them with global partner organisations including 14 Fortune 500 corporations: Chick-fil-A, The Coca-Cola Company, Cox Enterprises, Delta Air Lines, Georgia-Pacific, Georgia Power Foundation, Georgia Tech, Goldman Sachs, The Home Depot, Honeywell, Inspire Brands, Intercontinental Exchange, Invesco, Invest Georgia, Tech Square Ventures, UPS, and Wellstar.
Commenting on Kim’s selection, Bill Nussey, a partner at Engage, said: “Kim’s technology not only streamlines and automates tedious and manual document flows that bog down legal, HR and other corporate departments, but they have also made the product so easy and fast to adopt that any user or department can be up in running in hours.”
The other startups in the cohort are Call Simulator; CIRT; Cloud Range; Loliware; Pitstop; Sotero and Therma. Engage started with over 1600 candidate startups, working with the corporate partners to whittle it down to eight.
Karl Chapman, CEO and founder of Kim, said, “Working through the selection process with the Engage team was hard, fun and rewarding. We would have benefited from it even if we had not agreed on a deal. Kim has achieved many milestones since it was formed, but in a few years, when we look back, I think we will recognize this as one of the most significant. This step helps us support our existing customers, win new customers and continue driving our technology forward.”
