FPC Client of the Week: Dibbr

Have you ever been looking for leads or a specific market to contact? Have you ever been frustrated not knowing where to look for this information or the results not being useful? Well look no further… our newest client Dibbr now offers solutions these problems!

Dibbr provides customers with verified and validated business email address. First, the team at Dibbr figures out who the customer wants to get in contact with. They then find the email address that match what you requested and send you a spreadsheet listing out these contacts with information including first name, last name, current company, current title, LinkedIn URL and of course their email address. With all the information provided, it then sets up the customer with all the information needed to connect. In addition to providing this information Dibbr goes the extra mile to ensure that all emails provided are validated. They have a test process implemented to ensure that the emails will be received by the server and goes directly to the said individual.

Dibbr offers a few different packages to meet the needs of all requests. There is the monthly fee of $300 which provides customers with 100 emails ($3 per email), there’s the A La Carte which is $100 per batch which provides customers with 25 emails ($4 per email) and there is the sourcing option which allows customers to get a minimum 50 which is ($5 per email).

The awesome tool was created by Steve Kroll, the co-founder and CEO, as he was doing some sales and marketing consulting. He noticed that a common pain point for all these companies was that it was too expensive and inefficient to get in touch with the people they wanted to, and he just knew that there had to be a better way to go about doing this. So, one weekend he went home and put together a prototype. As Steve did work testing and refining, he soon realized how helpful the tool really was. At this point he then decided to share the wealth and commercialize the technology and Dibbr was born!

gener8tor: Believe.Ignite.Acheive

For those of you have not heard of gener8tor before, this organization is a key part of our state’s entrepreneurial ecosystem. With offices in both Madison and Milwaukee, gener8tor invests its community, capital, expertise, mentorship and network in capable, early-stage entrepreneurs with innovative business models.

Fine Point works with several current and past graduates of the gener8tor program, including Stock Mfg Co., Docalytics, and Abodo, and we are thrilled to be a sponsor of the event.

Tomorrow night five young companies, two of which are out of Madison, will have a chance to showcase their product to an audience of about 400. Luella and Leah will be representing the Fine Point Consulting Team during this premier night celebration. The five companies – Modern Movement, Beekeeper Data, Project Foundry, HITLIST and our very own Stock Mfg Co – were chosen from over 450 applicants.

In addition to the 12 week mentoring sessions held all summer long, each of these companies will receive at least $70,000 in investment funds, and the three Madison startups (Modern Movement, Project Foundry, and Beekeeper Data) will each receive an additional $50,000 from the BrightStar Wisconsin Foundation. The gener8tor program also provides continued support in the use of their space, resources and mentors to help provide an opportunity to all companies to reach that next level.

FPC Client of the Week: Rise of the Rest winner SOLOMO Technology

SOLOMO, which stands for social, local, mobile, takes consumer information and provides it to businesses to give them better insight into what the customer’s interests are. As stated by Liz Eversoll, CEO, “Location Data is a brand new category that provides us amazing insight into consumers and what experiences they’d like to have”.

SOLOMO along with eight other Madison startups were selected out of hundreds to have an opportunity to pitch to Steve Case, the founder of AOL, at his Rise of the Rest Event. The event was held in downtown Madison at the Majestic last Monday. Rise of the Rest is a five city, 1,800-mile bus tour that will give startups across the mid-west a chance to pitch their company for a chance to win.

After waiting in anticipation after pitching in the afternoon, Liz Eversoll was announced the winner at the event later that evening. Case mentioned that many would be shocked that SOLOMO was out of Madison, WI as what they are developing ideas that typically come out of Silicon Valley. Case stated that they chose SOLOMO because they have “the potential to really be a break out company…to send a signal all around the country and all around the world that Madison is a hot startup hub”.

And what exactly was the prize you might ask? SOLOMO won $100,000 from Case’s investment firm and a trip to the 2015 South by Southwest Startup Village in March for an opportunity to win even more additional funding!

We are super excited to be a part of SOLOMO Technology and to be able to hear all about their journey in the future. Congratulations!
