The Brandery accelerator class of 2017 was released last week! To follow up, we are excited to highlight each of the companies with their own blog post! Every day, we will post about one of the seven companies in our class for you to learn more about. Only two months separate us from Demo Day, so let’s get to know the names and faces behind the companies!
Today we’ll be highlighting Martin, formerly ConsultMates Inc.!
