A 6-month-old software startup spinning out of TechTown is starting to get the attention of some big corporations.
URBN Technologies recently graduated from TechTown’s DTX Launch Detroit program
, a 10-week summer accelerator for college students and recent graduates aspiring to launch a technology startup. It's now working on IT and software consulting with some big automotive players.
"We're working on projects with GM and Chrysler," says Pradeep Bhat, CEO of URBN Technologies
. "We just enjoy programming. We wanted to come with our own projects."
URBN Technologies and its team of six people is currently working on a software platform that allows users to control all of the electronics they own from a single device. Think of it as a TV remote for your TV and every other electronic gadget in the house.
"We're going to narrow the scope of what we’re doing later on," says Matthew Verkin, CMO of URBN Technologies.
