#7 InGrown Organics
There is an undeniable trend going on in the food and beverage industry. Consumers are turning away from mass-produced food and increasingly chose biological, organic, or local food. But there’s also criticism. Some just don’t trust companies anymore. Biological vegetables are more expensive than your regular veggies, so customers want to be sure they get what they are paying for.
It was a few nights before Christmas, in 2019, that a solution was brought to the market. InGrown, a SaaS company, was founded. Their aim: increasing transparency. Combining the unique structure of CEA Farms (Closed Environment Agriculture) with special SaaS technology, InGrown finally gives us the transparency we crave!
Information security has always been an important issue, but as long as most people worked at the office, things were manageable. Covid-19 has changed that. Many office workers now work from home. Your corporate network is accessed from an endless number of locations. It’s impossible to guarantee that all those logins are done through a secure connection.
DoControl, founded in New York in June 2020, is a SaaS-solution enabling fine-grained information policies. Set detailed controls on how employees, external users, and admins may access, share, and manipulate your data. Thanks to a clear visualization of data exposure across all your SaaS apps, you are –once again- in full control of your cybersecurity.
The agile framework can be quite effective. Stand-ups, sprints, and crunches help you achieve your goals. That is if people really adopt the agile-mindset. To get everybody on board, making your sprint fun and interactive is a good idea. You can even link your agile mindset with the good old Deming-circle by making your sprints a bit more retrospective. SaaS-company Myko offers the tools to make your sprints more effective. It’s fully customizable, enables anonymous feedback (finally getting rid of groupthink), and more.
We all know the power of LinkedIn. It’s where we go to ask questions, to find new employees and jobs. LinkedIn has also become a primary tool for sales. In the early days of LinkedIn, sales was a matter of messaging your contacts or dropping content in groups. Over the years, LinkedIn has added more and more tools that help you boost sales. All this, however, requires the professional network of your salesperson.
ReferIn focuses on the company’s professional network, enabling sales teams to scale their use of referrals beyond anything seen before.

ReferIn even identifies potential referrals that are hidden in your Referrers’ network, saving you hours and hours of LinkedIn searching.
Do you want to be remembered? Of course, you do. We all want to be remembered. Founded July 1, 2020, New York-based ForgetMeNot makes sure we won’t be forgotten. This company offers its users a SaaS-solution to upload and create digital memories. The unique feature is that these memories are delivered (or unlocked) at a specified time in the future.
That’s right, you can create personal messages to be delivered years from now, just like in the 2007 movie “P.S. I love you”.
