StartupAZ names 10 companies to 2021 Collective Growth Cohort

StartupAZ Foundation, a nonprofit organization fostering Arizona’s startup ecosystem, recently named 10 startups to its 2021 Collective Growth Cohort. This year’s participants are building companies in health care, automotive, senior care, lead generation and more.

The Collective is a one year commitment for participants, typically company founders, to come together, share their tips, hardships and ideas while ultimately supporting each other as they work to scale their companies.

The program starts with a short retreat to Flagstaff, to be held in August this year, followed by monthly “accountability check-ins” among the cohort.

Brandon Clarke, the CEO and co-founder of StartupAZ, described the Collective as an “ongoing experiment” with tweaks and refinements made ever since the program started six years ago.

Here is the list of the 2021 participants:

  • Bravo Pay: Maria Luna, CEO
  • HALEE: Tyler Lyman, Founder and CEO
  • Hoot Medical: Jerrod Bailey, CEO  
  • HUUB: Jenny Poon, Founder and CEO
  • Nurture Boss: Jacob Carter, Founder and CEO
  • Promineo Tech: Nick Suwyn, President
  • RoviCare: PJ Likhmania, Co-Founder
  • Televeda: Shruti Gurudanti, Co-Founder and CEO                                      
  • Used Car Club: Bobby Adams, Founder and CEO
