EquipmentShare s cofounders, brothers William and Jabbok Schlacks, drew inspiration for their business from the socialist commune where they grew up in rural Missouri.But commune life also barred them from keeping personal possessions or saving their own money, and severely limited their education, computer and internet access.Willy Schlacks said the company recently launched a system called the ES Tracker that gives users real-time data about the location and usage of their various machines or vehicles they re renting out.The company sends technicians out to install sensors or telematics system on users equipment to get them started.The company now employs 45 full-time, and operates with services centers in Missouri, Florida, Texas and New Zealand, with plans to expand geographically within the U.S.Cofounder and General Partner of Romulus Capital, Neil Chheda said his fund backed EquipmentShare because, We like getting into large industries that haven t been transformed by tech, and construction is one of them.He added that EquipmentShare s decision to bring telematics and sophisticated analytics to small and medium sized construction businesses was likely to spike the company s growth.
Romulus Capital has raised its third—and largest—fund to back early-stage startups, many sourced in labs at MIT, the alma mater of the firm s two young General Partners, Neil Chheda and Krishna K. Gupta.The duo closed their newest fund, Romulus Capital III LP, at $75 million.Originally, Romulus Capital wanted to support great technical entrepreneurs they met on campus who would likely, after graduation, abandon their very early-stage startups for day jobs in finance or consulting, Gupta said.The investors youth was seen as a sign of inexperience to some potential limited partners in their fund s earlier days, Gupta and Chheda said.It has also seen one company deadpool, however– Beacon, the all-you-can-fly travel startup, which closed shop in spring this year after raising a tranched Series A round from Romulus and others.The Romulus portfolio also includes: ClassPass, which lets customers book and take classes at any listed gym or fitness studio for a flat monthly rate; Placester which provides site creation and other tools to help real estate agents do business online; E la Carte, a maker of tablets for restaurant tables that allow patrons to pay without waiting on a check; and an app that tracks a user s mental health then alerts and helps them when they need counseling.
Among those that have survived, however, are smart sites and apps serving the office-catering corner of the industry, a $20 billion market in the U.S. alone according to research from Technomic.Now, one of the earliest players to focus on this space, ZeroCater, which was founded in 2009, has raised a $4.1 million Series A round of investment led by Romulus Capital and joined by Struck Capital.ZeroCater CEO and founder Arram Sabeti said he started the company after feeling frustrated with the office managerial burdens of ordering for a small team at a startup he worked for, primarily to learn about entrepreneurship, site lets an office manager or other person tasked with ordering for a group set up preferences– including around taste, allergies or lifestyle choices– for their team, and remember these for one-click ordering.The San Francisco-based startup now facilitates office catering in Austin, Chicago, New York City and parts of New Jersey, the San Francisco Bay Area, San Jose, and Washington D.C. ZeroCater is not likely to expand to suburbs, as it focuses on areas that have a dense population of workers and lots of medium to large employers.Sabeti explained that orders for groups at work represent a a higher price per delivery made than single customer orders, and that means higher-end restaurants are willing to spend their time cooking to fulfill orders that come through ZeroCater, versus take-out ordering sites such as Grubhub.
Artificial intelligence company Cogito raised $15 million in its latest funding round, the company told VentureBeat today.Cogito combines behavioral science and artificial intelligence to detect a person s emotional state and determine if their mood has changed and how conversations are going — all in real time.With the use of Cogito, customer satisfaction at some companies grew by more than 20 percent, while agent engagement grew by more than 50 percent, Cogito said in a statement shared with VentureBeat.Our real-time emotional intelligence engine enables agents to be happier and more engaged in their jobs, customers to experience superior service, and companies to benefit from improved efficiency and increased loyalty, said Cogito cofounder and CEO Joshua Feast in a statement.Cogito is also being used outside of customer service.By recording a daily voice diary and detecting communication with friends and movement through the patient s smartphone, Cogito is working with the Department of Veterans Affairs to assist veterans with Post Traumatic Stress Disorder PTSD .Cogito worked with Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency  DARPA , the investment arm of the Department of Defense, from 2007 to 2011.If doctors reach out fast enough, the intervention they have to provide is less severe, Feast told VentureBeat.Similar technology is being used by patients and doctors at a Brigham and Women s Hospital study in Boston to assist people who have experienced extreme grief or depression.Before DARPA or clinical trials, Cogito spent eight years at the Human Dynamics Lab at MIT.Cogito is one of a number of companies that uses machine learning and emotion detection to come out of MIT, among them Koko, which raised funding in August to place empathy inside intelligent assistants, and Affectiva, whose real-time emotion analysis is best known for its use in video.Elsewhere in the emotion tracking space, Beyond Verbal wants to use voice analysis and devices like an Amazon Echo to find out if a person is ill.In September, Beyond Verbal raised $3 million to track the mood in a person s voice.The $15 million funding round was led by OpenView and included Romulus Capital and Salesforce Ventures.
Allurion, a Boston-based startup offering a non-invasive gastric balloon by swallowing a pill, has gained $27 million in Series C funding from previous investor Romulus Capital, with new participation from Cogepa Investments and IDO Investments, an innovation firm based in Oman.There are a lot of gastric bypass solutions and other implantable devices out there for weight loss, but you usually need surgery to insert them.Allurion’s device comes in the form of a pill and takes about 15 minutes to inflate in the stomach after consumption.The device will stay put in the stomach for about 4 months, a good amount determined to help the overweight person shed a significant amount of fat.The balloon then opens up right around the four-month mark and the body excretes it.Allurion has gained approval for this device, called the Elipse Balloon, in parts of Europe and the Middle East so far.
Agtech has largely seemed underserved by emerging startups, though farmers have largely proven more receptive to adopting new tech than most might assume.Ceres Imaging has a fairly straightforward pitch.Pay for a low-flying plane to snap shots of your farm with spectral cameras and proprietary sensors, and soon after get delivered insights that can help farmers determine water and nutrient content at a plant-level while also gaining insights into problems ailing their crops like pest and disease.Today, the startup announced that it has raised $2.5 million on top of a $5 million Series A round it closed in May.The latest raise comes from Romulus Capital which led the startup’s previous bout of funding.Ceres Imaging CEO Ashwin Madgavkar founded the startup four years ago as a grad student at Stanford, where he saw a lot of cool applications for spectral cameras and wondered how they might help promote cleaner energy and more efficient resource usage.
Wolves purportedly raised Romulus and Remus, who went on to rule Rome.Is there good scientific evidence for learning across species?"We wanted to know if bats learn to recognize new foods from members of another bat species as quickly as they learn from their own species," said first author Krista Patriquin, a postdoctoral fellow with STRI Staff Scientist, Rachel Page, at the time of the study."This tells us how bats may cope with changes in food availability resulting from environmental changes and helps to explain how bats have become such successful and widespread mammals," said Patriquin, now a postdoc at the University of Toronto.The research team first tested fringed-lipped bats, Trachops cirrhosus, to find out if they could learn from other bats in the same species that a computer-generated tone is linked with a food reward of bait fish.Then they asked whether the same bats could learn to recognize the tone from another species in their neighborhood, the white-throated, round-eared bat, Lophostoma silvicolum.
ZeroCater may have made its name in bringing restaurant food to offices for lunch (or other meals), but it has now raised a new fresh round of funding for the next perk it hopes to bring to companies: snacks.While ZeroCater continues to expand from city to city with new restaurants as it tries to grow beyond just bringing lunch to startups in the Bay Area, it’s now looking to compete with the likes of Aramark to make sure it gains control of the fridges and pantries in offices as its next big line of business.And while it may seem like a perk, as competition for talent continues to heat up regardless of city, those perks are increasingly becoming table stakes to keeping the best people around.To do that, the company today said it has raised a new $12 million financing round led by Cleveland Avenue, with participation by Justin Kan, Romulus Capital and Struck Capital.“You have more companies trying to compete for the same talent,” co-founder Arram Sabeti said.ZeroCater is looking to create a suite of tools for managers to help give employees a level of granularity they might be used to when it comes to procuring office equipment, giving them the ability to give specific feedback as to what kind of drinks they might want in their fridge.
The “restaurant of the future” may elicit thoughts of a chrome diner with robot servers and an otherwise hefty amount of Tokyo futurist kitsch, but the fact is that the forthcoming sit-down dining experience may just end up looking a lot like ordering from a takeout app.Presto is working with restaurants to update the 21st century dine-in experience, letting customers order and pay from their table with a tablet device while also providing hardware like wearables for servers so they can be alerted when they are needed by customers.The company announced today that they’ve raised $30 million in growth funding from Recruit Holdings and Romulus Capital.I2BF Global Ventures, EG Capital and Brainchild Holdings also participated in the raise.Considering how much online shopping has shaped commerce and apps like Instacart and Uber Eats are changing how we get food delivered to our houses, it’s a bit peculiar that physical restaurants with hundreds of locations have been so slow to shift the customer experience toward a greater reliance on tech.Presto has launched partnerships with a number of restaurant chains like Applebee’s, Red Lobster, Denny’s and Outback Steakhouse.
The first teaser for Patrick Stewart’s return as an older, traumatised Jean-Luc Picard gave us a hell of a reveal: Starfleet’s finest is no longer actually at Starfleet.But at San Diego Comic-Con, we’ve been given a glimpse at just what the former Captain of the Enterprise is up to.And, turns out, he’s in for one hell of a ride.Set in the wake of the destruction of Romulus during the events of the first Star Trek Kelvin timeline movie (it’s a long, suitably time-bending story), Star Trek: Picard follows the titular former captain of the Enterprise after he has formally retired from Starfleet.But Picard finds himself thrust back into action, building a team for a new mission concerning the lingering spectre of an all-too-familiar threat...He’s not alone though, to the surprise of us all: Star Trek: Picard sees Jean-Luc recruit returning faces from Voyager and The Next Generation: Seven of Nine, Data, and Hugh the Borg from the TNG season five episode “I, Borg,” with Jeri Ryan, Brent Spiner, and Jonathan Del Arco all reprising their roles.
Next year, we’re going to see the ramifications of what Jean-Luc Picard has been up to since Star Trek: Nemesis in his very own, self-titled series.But before that, we need to actually see what he’s been up to, and we’re gonna get a glimpse in the form of an upcoming novel and comic book series.Announced at Star Trek Las Vegas yesterday, two Picard prequels will begin paving the way for CBS All Access’ incoming streaming service starting this autumn.Writer Mike Johnson and Picard Producer Kirsten Beyer will kick off Picard-prequelitis with Star Trek: Picard—Countdown, a three-part comic series from IDW beginning this November that... well, we don’t really know much more than that about it.A press statement provided by CBS notes that Countdown—not to be confused with the 2009 IDW series Star Trek: Countdown, which set the stage for the destruction of Romulus ahead of the 2009 Star Trek movie reboot, and also featured an older, wiser, post-Nemesis Picard—will revolve around “a mission that would go on to change the life” of Jean-Luc, which is presumably the same mission that leads to him quitting Starfleet ahead of the show.As if there weren’t enough parallels to that 2009 comic series already, it’s been heavily implied that the cause for Picard’s exit is indeed going to be a rescue mission in the wake of Romulus being destroyed by a nearby star going supernova, as first glimpsed in the prime-timeline flashback portions of J.J. Abrams’ movie reboot.
The Spiratex Company is a leader in custom plastic extrusion, serving customers with production facilities in Romulus and Monroe, Michigan.As a pioneer in the extrusion process for UHMW/PE, The Spiratex Company has set industry standards for the global extrusion marketplace.
We don’t see Jean-Luc here first, but instead, Data (Brent Spiner), wearing his yellow operations uniform from The Next Generation and painting on a canvas.It’s only when Picard enters the picture, also clad in his TNG uniform, that we realise things are certainly less real here, and perhaps more of a dream, something that would make sense given the first trailer showed us Picard still lamenting Data’s sacrifice.“Would you like to finish it, Captain?” Data asks as he offers his paint brush and we see the incomplete painting is of a cloaked woman looking out at a stormy sea.“I don’t know how,” Picard sadly tells Data, before the android tells him otherwise – and the offering of the brush seems to spark flashbacks in Jean-Luc’s head.It’s hard to say if these flashbacks are of an unknown attack or are somehow part of the rescue-operation-gone-wrong in the wake of the destruction of Romulus (which occurred in the prime-timeline parts of the 2009 Star Trek movie, and are canonical to this series) that lead to Picard retiring from Starfleet before the events of the show.Picard wakes from his dream with a lick or two from his new best friend, Number One the pit bull.

Chicago-based software review company G2 raised $100 million in venture capital and had big growth ambitions. It spent like a well-funded company, undergoing a $6 million office renovation and purchasing a domain name reportedly once valued at $1 million. But its ambitions surpassed its revenue growth, and in December 2019 the company laid off 10% of its workforce. The company applied for a Paycheck Protection Program loan to cover its payroll expenses during the coronavirus shutdown.  The company received a loan between $5 million and $10 million, according to the US. Treasury. In June, the company said, it returned the loan. On June 30, it laid off another 5% of its employees. Business Insider spoke with 11 current and former employees who said the company appeared to be spending like it would double or triple its revenue in 2019. Instead, its revenue grew just 50%, putting the tech startup in a financial squeeze which continues to this day. Visit Business Insider's homepage for more stories. Connecting the fifth and sixth floors of G2's new office, situated in the Chicago Loop, is a giant wooden staircase with stadium-esque platforms designed to seat the quickly-growing company during its increasingly populated all-hands meetings. Bright red cushions and safety tape accent the large structure, matching the color scheme of the company's new logo, reimagined and truncated from its clunkier, original name, G2 Crowd. The stairwell, elegant but formidable, was built in 2019 and signaled that G2's scrappier early days were past. It cost $1 million of a $6 million renovation budget to build. The structure had only been in use for a few months in December, when G2 staffers climbed to the second floor and learned that 10% of the 400-person company would be laid off and disinvited from the annual holiday party the next evening.  "Optically, looking back, it does not look good," one former employee told Business Insider. The company would later dispute the amount paid for the stairway from its own pockets. G2, a software review website and one of the most successful startups on the Chicago tech scene, made another decision not long afterwards whose optics also looked questionable in hindsight.  As the coronavirus was tanking the US economy, the company applied for and received a small business loan as part of the federal Paycheck Protection Program to cover some of its payroll costs. The PPP money was earmarked to help cash-strapped businesses keep their workers on staff; and if they could avoid layoffs, the loans would be forgiven. G2 is one of roughly 10,000 companies backed by venture capital and public-equity firms that participated in the government's emergency loan program. The startups that received money are at the center of a debate about whether venture-backed businesses, which are partially owned by their VC investors and which are designed to pursue inherently risky business models, have taken away money intended to help mom-and-pop employers, like restaurants and dental offices, stay afloat during the coronavirus pandemic. As the case of G2 shows, the answer is not always black and white. G2, which has raised more than $100 million from top-tier venture capital firms like IVP, Accel, and Pritzker Group, was already struggling by the time the coronavirus began to spread across the US. With its free-spending history and missed growth targets, G2 had all the signs of a company that leaned on the PPP program to support an unsustainable growth model. As it turns out, G2 returned the government money — which totaled between $5 million and $10 million according to the government's database — in June, following Business Insider inquiries into the loan. Later that month, G2 laid off another 5% of its staff, even as it said its business was showing signs of resilience and better-than-expected performance amid the pandemic. Business Insider spoke with 11 current and former G2 employees to get a first-hand look at the financial decisions made at the company leading up to the coronavirus crisis. Their comments, shared on condition of anonymity because they feared retribution, reveal a pattern of high-risk, low-payoff spending and leadership missteps that left the company ill-prepared for the coronavirus curveball — a situation that describes many other venture-funded startups whose workers are increasingly adding to the country's unemployment rolls. A photoshopped image of the CEO ringing the NYSE bell  G2 was founded in 2013, but its hyper-growth drive began in May 2018 when cofounder Godard Abel took over as CEO with a mission to take the company public. The IPO goal was emphasized to G2's staff at every all-hands meeting, where Abel would display a photoshopped image of himself ringing the bell at the New York Stock Exchange. During Abel's first year in the CEO job, G2 made two acquisitions followed by bumpy integrations. It also opened two international offices. It was all in line with the growth-first obsession that defined many startups at the time. "Everything was based on vanity metrics: over-hiring to hit milestones, getting to five cities," one former employee said. "They really pushed and bragged that we had 400 employees in multiple countries." G2 is a review site for enterprise software products, where chief technology officers choose expensive software based on customer-generated feedback, like a restaurant gets on Yelp. Revenue comes from customers like IBM and Salesforce, who pay for click-throughs to their websites. G2 also sells research reports similar to those of industry data firms. IBM, G2's largest client, pays millions of dollars a year for the startup's various services. But G2's big dream is to become a proper digital marketplace for business software, as Amazon did for books. To get there, the company invested heavily in hiring and marketing in 2018 and 2019 before hitting a financial squeeze.  A new URL with a 7-figure price tag sunk G2's traffic When G2 outgrew its long-time home at Chicago's Civic Opera House, it signed an 8-year lease on a 66,000 square-foot space down the street. Crain's Chicago described the move as a "drastic expansion" in response to a "hiring binge." That was when the million dollar staircase began.  G2' new marketing chief, Ryan Bonnici, who joined the company in December 2017, pushed for the construction of the voguish staircase, touting it as a draw for Chicago tech talent, several sources said.   With its showpiece steps, G2 had something to match other buzzy Silicon Valley firms like Square and Asana, and the company could lay claim to young Chicago tech workers who might otherwise be drawn to jobs at out-of-town tech companies with big local offices, like Google or LinkedIn. A G2 spokesperson, who declined to give their name, said part of a renovation allowance from the new landlord paid for the staircase, which also helped G2 avoid additional construction to integrate its two floors. One of the marketing team's other big purchases was a new domain name. Having changed its name from G2 Crowd to G2, the company wanted a URL to match,  and purchased the domain name. The URL was originally priced at seven-figures, two former employees said, though it may have been lowered during the negotiation process.  But, as is common when you switch domain names, the company's visitor numbers temporarily tanked when it launched the new url in April 2019. The company lost 35% of its traffic overnight, one former marketer said, although it eventually returned. Lauren Decker, Vice President of Brand and Product Marketing at G2, defends the purchase.  "It was a pretty critical investment for us to have a domain that's easy to search and to find, and having a 2-digit domain makes it easier to remember," she said, describing the cost of the G2 domain name as "below market price." Revenue declined with employee morale The exuberant spending might have gone unremarked, but revenue growth slipped in 2019 following what insiders described as a leadership change that sank the sales team's morale and sent some of its leaders packing. In the four years before 2019, the sales team had doubled or tripled its revenues from the year before, according to former team members. But in 2019, G2's revenue grew just 50%. Former members of the sales team pointed fingers at cofounder Matt Gorniak, who rejoined G2 as chief revenue officer in May 2018 and served until May 2020. As with the marketing team, leadership set ambitious hiring and performance goals that many team members found untenable.  The company admits some missteps. "While we won't discuss our sales targets or achievements externally, we will say that while the percent growth rate did not meet our stated goals, we are incredibly proud of our team's performance," the G2 spokesperson said.  "Things are going great at G2. Stoked that the momentum is strong and now accelerating with Mike Weir joining as my successor CRO," Gorniak said in an email to Business Insider when asked to discuss his tenure at the company.  Venture capital changed its tune on PPP Without the setbacks of 2019, G2 might have been well-fixed financially to continue on a strong growth path with no need for government help. The company raised $55 million in a Series C led by IVP in October 2018, bringing its total funding to $100 million. That round valued G2 at nearly $500 million, according to TechCrunch. But by March 2020, with its last fundraising more than 15 months in the rear-view mirror, the coronavirus pandemic came barreling down to test G2's resiliency — and put its recent management moves under scrutiny. When G2's PPP loan was approved, Abel told staffers it would keep everyone's jobs safe for around six weeks, two recent employees told Business Insider. "We were pretty uncertain and fearful of how that was going to affect our business," Decker said on June 10, about the decision to apply for the loan.  Despite its initial relief, G2 returned the loan in early June. The business performed better than it had expected, Decker said, and new government guidance led it to reconsider its eligibility for the funds.  In its further cost-cutting in response to the virus, it pared vice president and senior leadership's pay by 15% to 20%, Decker said. Senior leaders will also forgo their bonuses, the G2 spokesperson said.   Then on June 30, the company laid off 17 people, or 5% of its remaining staff. "The largest firms in venture were very scared that the optics would look bad for them" Had G2 kept its PPP loan, it could have potentially averted the layoffs for some weeks. But would that only have delayed an inevitable need to cut staff going forward? In that case, G2 may have had to repay the loan. The very nature of a PPP loan, with its restrictions on layoffs, is in some ways contrary to the belt-tightening that many VCs have advised their portfolio companies to undertake in order to conserve cash and survive the downturn caused by the pandemic. G2 investors Jules Maltz from IVP, Arun Matthew from Accel, Tim Kopp from Hyde Park Venture Partners and Adam Koopersmith from Pritzker Group did not respond to requests for comment about G2's PPP loan filing or return.  Krishna Gupta, founding partner at venture firm Romulus Capital, said all of the companies in his portfolio applied for the program initially, and believes the program did save jobs, but some of the companies gave the money back once they realized they could get more capital from their late stage investors.  "The largest firms in venture were very scared that the optics would look bad for them in taking a loan — that it was, in the public discourse, for Main Street and not for tech or Wall Street," Gupta said. As of June 30, the PPP program has distributed around $522 billion to more than 4.9 million businesses, the Treasury said. Many venture-backed companies received a portion of those funds, but many also gave the money back. Like many businesses, venture-backed companies faced a lack of clarity on whether they qualified. Companies like G2,with fewer than 500 employees, technically qualified as a small business, but new guidance issued by the US Treasury in late April stipulated that companies with access to outside capital, such as deep-pocketed investors, should not take the loan. "Every startup we heard of sent it back," said Jarrett Streebin, CEO at EasyPost, which received and returned its loan. "It would have helped, but the guidance on it was so weak, we were opening ourselves up to a lot of liability in the future, and liability that would be tough to measure because of how loosely some of the stuff was written." Meanwhile G2, now seasoned in the art of making do with less money than expected, has a new strategy for weathering the coronavirus: taking things slow.  "Right now in this particular climate, especially with the recession and the pandemic still leaving a lot of uncertainty, we have slowed our hiring," Decker said. "Going into 2020, our focus has been on smart growth and how we ensure we get the most return on investment out of every program we run."SEE ALSO: $3 billion Carta slashed its revenue goal but kept hiring anyway, leading to massive layoffs in April.

Mars in Astrology was the most important god of the Roman Empire alongside Jupiter.He was considered the mythical father of Romulus and Remus, the founders of the city of Rome, and was initially worshiped outside the city, on the so-called Field of Mars.It was not until Augustus that his temple was moved to the center of the city's forum; The occasion was the military defeat of the Caesar murderers and revenge on the enemies of the republic.In contrast to its Greek counterpart Ares, Mars was originally a spring god.It's fighting abilities to drive away from the winter and its harshness soon turned Mars, which was initially connected to agriculture, into a pure god of war.The names of his demonic companions (Phobos and Deimos, fear and terror) were later transferred to the moons of the planet Mars.
