Sputnik ATX, Austin-Based Venture Capital Fund and Accelerator, Announces Its Summer 2021 Cohort - Link


The Summer 2021 cohort companies are:

● Fila Manila, Founder Jake Deleon - Filipinos represent the second largest Asian American community yet have little to no representation in grocery stores. Fila Manila is building the premier Filipino American food brand inspired by Filipino cuisine and its proud community. Founded by a first-generation Filipino American immigrant & CPG Food industry veteran, the company’s inaugural products are a range of clean-label sauces inspired by iconic Filipino flavors that are available for purchase both online and at top-tier retailers.

● ImagineX, Co-founders Mario Varon and Diego Rodriguez - Millions of dollars are wasted each year by real estate developers guessing what future buyers will want inside. ImagineX allows developers to share an ultra-realistic digital twin of their designs, complete with furnishings. Clients can walk through these properties with a VR headset or on the web and see customized details like finishes and wall colors to their liking before physical builds are finished, increasing conversion by 30% and saving developers on average $70K per project.

● Lodgeur, Co-founders Brooke Bornick and Sebastien Long - Apartment owners want to maximize rental income. Business travelers, healthcare workers, digital nomads and others who book extended stays want affordable and attractive lodging that feels like home. Lodgeur creates a win-win for both parties with its turnkey flexible living service. Renters book convenient furnished accommodation on flexible terms. In a pilot project in a Greystar community, building owners earned 146% of market rent on Lodgeur units and boosted their property value.

● Patient Sortal, Founder Kenny Eck - The vast majority of people exiting prison have ongoing healthcare issues that need to be addressed upon release, but archaic processes in the transfer of their healthcare data are costing returning citizens their health and billions of taxpayer dollars. Medical care without interruption is required by law yet it’s being neglected. Patient Sortal digitizes records and introduces returning citizens to qualified medical providers without interruption while saving Medicaid $4,000 on average per patient.

● Shmoody, Co-founders Mike McSweeney and Nate Thomas - Shmoody is the Swiss Army knife of mental health. The mobile app and community help people with depression, anxiety, and addiction with fun and engaging mood boosting tools, community support, and personal development challenges. Shmoody offers the perfect mental snack to improve your mood in the short term and elevate mental wellbeing in the long-term.

Wake Up! is hosted by Texas-Boxed, with generous sponsorship from Egan Nelson ( and the Silicon Hills Lawyer blog ( and Dell for Entrepreneurs (Dell)
Austin CPG brands, retailers, service providers, and local enthusiasts should join us for a lively discussion about the CPG scene and helping each other grow our businesses.

Cosmic Coffee and Beer
121 Pickle Rd, Austin, TX 78704

It's that time of year where all of your friends will be begging you to vote for their panel to be selected at SXSW next year. I'm not above asking for your vote for the Super Connectors Meetup:

Super Connectors are professional business developers who understand the power of a qualified referral network and know how to make friends with ease. Their network of other professionals is typically vast and varied in that they know people in different industries and walks of life. Building and maintaining relationships is what makes Super Connectors tick, and the very nature of these types of people is that no one is ever a stranger. This meetup embodies everything that makes SXSW special for professionals who attend. VOTE UP PLEASE
