Each week, TechCo features emerging tech startups that can help streamline your business tasks or simplify your life. This week in Startup Spotlight, we found an easy way to create and sell online courses, for millennials to rent cool furniture, get rewards for drinking craft beer, and more.
Click 4 Course (Fountain Valley, CA)
Looking for another revenue stream? This company offers the easiest way to create, offer, track and sell online courses using your own content. This is ideal for professionals needing to take Continuing Education (CE) courses, and they can find your content (video, Powerpoint, PDFs, etc.) here and signup. Features of Click 4 Course include: the ability to organize courses into categories, choosing the price to charge the learners, putting time frame limits on completing the course, ensuring that the learner watches the whole thing, setting the number of times a learner can take the course, offering test questions, tracking their progress, offering customized certifications, and more. The company offers a 30-day free trial offer and pricing starts at $79 to sell courses with unlimited learners. The platform is available for everyone to create and sell online courses.
Loyale (Santa Barbara, CA)
It’s five o’clock somewhere! This app rewards customers for enjoying their favorite craft beers, exploring ale trails and receive exclusive offers, event invites, and discounts on pint, pitcher, and growler purchases from your favorite craft breweries. By scanning the LOYALE label at participating breweries, it’ll track your purchases to redeem discounts. The app also offers news from the craft beer scene and has member-only offers.
Roofr (Toronto, Ontario)
When it’s rainy season, leaking roofs are bound to happen, and getting that fixed can be very expensive. Roofr is a roofing broker and tech company that utilizes satellite imagery technology to measure your roof and provide you with an instant, free estimate. By eliminating the middleman, they can offer customers wholesale pricing on materials and connect you directly with local vetted installers and save them up to 20 percent. Property owners enter their address, and Roofr will scan an image of their roof and put together an estimate. A professional installer will come out and complete the work at a fair price.
Feather (New York City, NY)
Why buy cool furniture when you can rent it? Feather is a stylish furniture rental company for millennials. Let’s face it, the thought of going out and spending thousands on a couch isn’t really an option for many and the put-it-together IKEA model isn’t for everyone. This startup helps customers rent high-quality furniture for their home or office with a modern flare. Customers can rent by the room or choose individual pieces, even down to a floor lamp. The company does offer an in-home consultation at no cost (only available in NYC for now) as well as delivery and set up.
