“This acquisition is a huge milestone and is a testament to all the hard work and dedication we’ve put towards our product and company. We’re thrilled to be joining the i3 Verticals team and I’m incredibly appreciative of all The Brandery did for us over the years to assist in kick-starting and growing RentShare, helping lead us to this opportunity.”
- Ian Halpern, CEO, RentShare
We’re thrilled to announce that two graduates of The Brandery, RentShare (2011) and Chalky (2013), have been acquired. RentShare has been acquired by i3 Verticals, a technology-centric payment company focused on providing solutions to its clients throughout the U.S. Chalky has been acquired by Admittedly, a platform that helps high school students find their dream schools and get accepted.

“The Brandery had a strong positive influence on our foundation and early progress,” said Isaac Madan, CEO of Chalky. “We learned aggressively during the program via a diverse set of mentors and fellow founders.”
When companies enter The Brandery each year, many dream of some day being acquired. It’s exciting to see our graduates reach that inflection point, and we’re anxiously anticipating the next big thing these founders will do. Congratulations to the RentShare and Chalky teams!
