Memphis start-up selected for newest RevTech Labs accelerator

Cohort 18 of the Charlotte-based accelerator is the largest in the program's history. None of the 15 participants call Charlotte home.

A Memphis-based start-up that provides an end-to-end property management software system is one of 15 participants in Cohort 18 of Charlotte’s RevTech Labs accelerator. It is also the largest class in the program’s history.

The company is SecondKeys which was founded in May 2018 by Amber Hayes, an experienced contractor who had worked for multiple apartment complexes and property managers. Since then the team has continued to grow year over year as it provides an easy-to-use maintenance and repair platform.

Readers who have attended Launch Tennessee’s previous “3686 Festivals” might recall that SecondKeys won the all-virtual pitch competition in the COVID-impacted 2020 event.

RevTech Labs was founded in 2012 and is viewed as one of the top financial technology accelerators in the world with two cohorts annually. The newest group came together virtually early last week to begin the 12-week experience. The 15 start-ups will work with RevTech’s advisory board and mentors while also receiving funding from its venture firm.

Eighty-seven percent of the newest group of founders identify as traditionally underrepresented. Ironically, none of the start-ups that were selected call Charlotte home. One-third of the participants hail from New York while two are Toronto-based.
