“It was another great year for Sandbox companies,” said Jeff Shackelford, director of Digital Sandbox KC. “We’ve now funded development projects for 79 companies and helped them raise almost $30 million in investment capital, creating more than 370 new Kansas City area jobs. And the great news, we’re already off and running to fund more projects in 2017.”
Using the MovinHouz mobile app, customers can Click It…Pic It… and Move! MovinHouz’s MovinPic Technology allows customers who are moving to upload photos of each room and major items. These photos will be seen by multiple vetted movers who will then each submit a moving quote.
These two companies really show the diversity of ideas and creativeness of Kansas City entrepreneurs and show us that there are still many, many early-stage companies the Sandbox can help move forward,” said Shackelford. “So, I tell everyone I see, bring your ideas to Sandbox and we’ll find a way to help.”
