On Tuesday, June 28 the Hispanic technology startup OYE! Business Intelligence participated in a Startup Showcase where they were awarded $25,000 from the nationally recognized non-profit, Jumpstart Inc. The joint public and private entity held the event entitled Startup Scaleup which attracted 1,500 entrepreneurs, investors, and evangelists from around northeast Ohio. OYE! was one of four finalists selected to receive the award out of the numerous companies who participated. OYE! will use this money as part of the current seed investment round that they are raising to build out their platform and add sales staff.
“We are very excited and honored by the opportunity to participate in the Jumpstart showcase. We are very pleased that we were able to obtain this generous funding from Jumpstart, and look forward to using it as part of this early round of investment,” said Eric Diaz, CFO of OYE!. OYE! has recently made headlines for their growing work with large brands and corporations throughout the U.S.
