  • Arcade, an end-to-end SaaS solution for measuring and increasing retail employee engagement and retention;

  • Banter, which enables customers to contact businesses over direct messaging channels using both AI and human agents;

  • Birdzi, a platform for personalized customer engagement designed to enable retailers and brands to deliver targeted, relevant, location-aware offers;

  • Fract, designed to help retailers predict the likelihood that a prospective location will result in disaster or probable success;

  • Kwik, an end-to-end IoT platform connecting retailers, brands and service providers to their customers; and

  • SupplyAI, an AI-powered platform designed to help omnichannel retailers detect and prevent returns.

Each company has completed a top-tier accelerator program such as Alchemist, Plug and Play, XRC Labs and REVTECH’s own accelerator program.

REVTECH’s 14-week Accelerator Program provides startups with seed funding, access to more than100 experienced mentors with backgrounds in retail, restaurant, venture capital and entrepreneurship, and office space at the Dallas Entrepreneur Center. The program culminates with the opportunity to pitch at its Fall Tech Trends event.
