Relevance Ventures provides update on several portfolio companies

Brentwood-based Relevance Ventures recently provided an update on several of its portfolio companies. The firm invests in solutions that make people’s lives better, focusing on the wellness sector, and adds that it “centers” on Series A and B, but also strategically participates in seed and later stage opportunities.

The companies for which Relevance Ventures provided updates are as follows;

  • CivicEye, based in Charlotte, NC, has launched its inaugural “Law Enforcement Empowerment Program” (LEEP) that provides an opportunity for tribal law enforcement agencies to partner with CivicEye on a free Records Management System (RMS) pilot program. “The program will be a vital tool in enabling agencies that otherwise couldn’t afford software or solutions for their departments,” the summary says.

  • PetScreening, yet another Charlotte-based start-up, has unveiled a pricing tool to accompany its trademarked FIDO ScoreTM. The FIDO Score is an algorithmic number that measures the housing-related risk of each pet and its owner.
