Techstars Impact cohort tackles animal and human health, fairer data and good jobs



ImpactAlpha, July 8 – Baltimore-based R3 Score is trying to give Americans with a criminal record a fairer shake when applying for jobs and financial services. Chicago’s Drugviu is working to promote access to better medical information for communities of color. And Accra-based Cowtribe is helping Africa’s small-scale livestock farmers coordinate animal care.

In all, ten companies are participating in Austin-based Techstars’ latest impact cohort, tackling issues in agriculture, health, financial services and education. Seven hail from the U.S., including two from Austin, while international teams come from Ontario (Canada), Accra (Ghana) and Lagos (Nigeria).

Techstars looks for startups to help mitigate mounting social and environmental risks

The group joins 44 other impact startups that have been backed by Techstars since it launched its impact initiative in January 2018. Those companies have collectively served 3.7 million people and reduced 14,000 tons of CO2 emissions.
