Renter, Inc. Founder Vitaliy Merkulov, a Sacramento Startup Profile

Like many entrepreneurs, the inspiration for Vitaliy Merkulov’s startup came from a need to solve a problem he had experienced. Vitaliy, a landlord, went through a very costly process of evicting a tenant. That problem motivated him to start asking around for better ways to predict bad tenants and not finding a solution, he launched Renter, what he has dubbed “Carfax for landlords.”  Renterinc.com lets landlords search and review their tenants. It’s free and legal. It’s as easy as posting a review on Yelp. Vitaliy presented his startup at 1 Million Cups Sacramento on January 4 at HackerLab. Afterwards,...

Sacramento Startup Profile Podcast: Sofiia Co-founder Tracy Saville

Humans, we’re complicated beings even as just individuals in isolation. Factor in interactions with family, friends, coworkers, and others with differing values, beliefs, and biases (conscious or unconscious) and you’ve got an incredibly complex tangle. It’s no wonder that we live in such tumultuous, contentious times. But imagine if we had a way to augment and enhance not only the understanding of ourselves but also those with whom we interact. Wouldn’t that enable profound insights and improvements in how we communicate, interact, and engage with each other? Making that a reality is the vision of one ambitious Sacramento entrepreneur. Tracy Saville is the cofounder of Sofiia AI, Inc., a company dedicated to the idea that quality relationships and human understanding are what drive human innovation, progress, and happiness. In this Sacramento Startup Profile Podcast episode Tracy chats about her startup as well as some insight into what to expect from the mentoring program for female tech entrepreneurs.

Sacramento Startup Profile: Foodfully Founder Brianna McGuire

Every year Americans throw away more than 74 billion pounds of food. According to Brianna McGuire, Founder of Davis startup Foodfully, this is mostly because they have either forgotten about what food items they had or they’re not really sure how to cook something they know they have. She and her team have developed an app-based hardware and software solution called Foodfully that helps to eliminate household food waste. I reached out to Brianna for an interview, and even though she’s visiting family in North Carolina for the holidays, she graciously took the time for a phone interview to talk about the food waste problem, her background, what it’s been like developing her startup, as well as some thoughts about supporting female founders here in the Sacramento region.
