EcoMap Technologies

EcoMap uses AI to help entrepreneurs find the resources they need.
Entrepreneurial activity across the country remains unequally distributed by race, gender, and class. Partially, this is due to an information barrier: often, the knowledge and resources needed to build successful ventures are distributed through who-you-know and insular networks, making it difficult for underserved populations to access it.

Online databases that openly list local resources available to entrepreneurs is an effective way to address this knowledge gap, but such platforms are hard to implement at scale because of the high cost of managing the data within them. EcoMap uses artificial intelligence to automate the process of collecting and updating information about local resources, allowing them to deploy free online portals that help those entrepreneurs find what they need to build successful ventures.

What's Innovative About Their Solution?

They built proprietary algorithms to find, clean, and update their data, reducing their COGS by over 70% compared to competitors, allowing them to keep their sites free to entrepreneurs while profiting off native advertising by business service providers.
