Digital startups gain access to Sente’s network and prepare to scale up
Sente Foundry LLC (“Sente”) announces the addition of AstraKode and Sitedropp to the Sente ecosystem of LogisticsTech startups. As part of Sente’s LogisticsTech family, both companies will gain access to Sente’s broad base of logistics enterprise partners, collaborate with its peer technology startups, and receive support as they work to become market leaders and scale nationally and internationally.
“We’re excited about working with these two startups,” said Gerod Carfantan, COO of Sente Foundry. “I first met the AstraKode team in Italy, and they showed me how easy it could be for an enterprise to create new blockchain-based applications and smart contracts. I’ve already started to connect them with other low-code startups like Netlume to build synergies. Sitedropp is also solving a problem that I experience personally regularly and is tackling a big opportunity in the industry-specific micro-fulfillment space”.
AstraKode, based in Pescara, Italy, is a low-code platform helping business analysts and developers build blockchain and smart contract applications with a visual, drag-and-drop interface with cloud deployment.
“Sente’s program represents a real opportunity for growth for us. On the one hand, it allows us to have expert analysts at our side, and on the other, to introduce us to potential partners. Sente has demonstrated from the very first meetings that it has in-depth knowledge of our target sectors,” says Fabiano Izzo, AstraKode CEO & Founder.
Sitedropp, based in Benton Harbor, Michigan, has a micro-fulfillment network that connects the construction industry and homeowners with on-demand materials delivery.
Steve Wandel, Sitedropp CEO, explains why they chose Sente. “We recognize Sente’s expertise in technology development and innovation management. Sitedropp’s goal of scaling our on-demand delivery platform aligns with Sente’s strength in scaling international startups. Our partnership with Sente provides the resources necessary to help build and grow a world-class company. Our mission “Transforming the way your future is delivered: and Sente’s purpose-driven approach are a good match.”
Sente continues to search the globe for its LogisticsTech program, which runs on a rolling admission process. Participants should be early-stage startups in freight and last-mile optimization, geospatial analytics, autonomous and connected logistics solutions, and pricing and fulfillment platforms for e-commerce and freight.
