BERKELEY, CA. (Oct 8, 2015) Tech Futures Group (TFG), the complete advisory wing for select tech companies has mentored and advised two companies, Kokko and ReyLabs, which will be featured at the Silicon Valley Leadership Group’s opening celebration of the new Silicon Valley Regional U.S. Patent and Trademark Office in San Jose. The event, to be held October 15th will highlight past, present and future technologies in an Innovators’ Showcase, including both TFG’s clients, Kokko and ReyLabs.
TFG advisor, Hon Wong assisted both companies in product positioning, market strategy, and preparation for fundraising. “Working with Hon Wong and Rebekkah Wu has been an essential part of our initial growth and success. I credit them for helping us raise our first $100K in funding. They helped with our sales presentations and crafting our story for investors” said Reynaldo Gil, CEO and Founder of ReyLabs.
A Hispanic immigrant entrepreneur, Mr. Gil founded Reylabs in 2013. Reylabs has developed an advanced Internet of Industrial Things (IoT) analytics platform with 11 patents pending. The software allows customers to sustainably monitor and analyze the health and efficiency of industrial equipment using sensors and low cost mobile devices. This saves customers money and avoids unplanned down time while reducing data center and network loads. Mr. Gil was recognized by Madam Secretary of Commerce Pritzker in 2014 as a leading immigrant innovator in Silicon Valley. His previous 4 pioneer software patents revolutionized the use of the cloud for supply chain automation. The Department of Defense adopted his model and saved more than $2.1B.
Dr. Nina Bhatti founded Kokko in 2012 to bring accurate color matching applications to consumers.
