KineticOne, an accelerator launched recently by Hong Kong-based seed-stage VC investor Mount Parker Ventures, has announced the names of five startups who have graduated from its one-day intensive programme.
Unlike a typical accelerator programme which primarily focuses on the startup pitch (which usually takes about half the time in an accelerator), KineticOne works with the startups to set their core business model, establish their internal tracking metrics, and help them on customer development.
Below is a brief profile of the five ventures:
Based out of Hong Kong, BookAirfreight.com brings convenience and price transparency to air cargo shipments. Its online booking engine automatically connects SMEs directly with air freight forwarders eliminating the cost and inefficiency of third-party brokers.
Rice Robotics is innovating in the last-mile delivery space. Its robot reduces the ‘last 50 metre’ delivery expense by accepting deliveries from carriers at the building entrance and delivering them to the recipients.
Singapore-based Anapi provides new forms of insurance solutions to the logistics industry. E-commerce has created new categories of uncertainties and and insurance is unsuited to high frequency, low value claims. Anapi fills this void with its AI-powered tools for self-insurance and risk mitigation.
Haulio, also based in Singapore, targets the inefficient haulage market where over half of trips are made carrying no cargo. Its SaaS product helps haulage companies manage their fleet and its marketplace matches spare capacity with loads.
Singapore-based ParcelPerform tackles the issue of data fragmentation across numerous carriers. Its solution allows customers full and granular insight into the location and delivery status of their package, as well as providing merchants with customer service tools.
