With Beycome’s proprietary software platform, anyone can sell or buy a home and save thousands in commissions, making the whole process easier, faster, and more transparent than using a traditional real estate agent, says Founder and CEO Nico Jodin.
Since July 2020, when the startup launched, Beycome has closed over 4,100 properties worth $1.2B, saving customers over $50M in commissions – without one real estate agent in house. Beycome recently expanded to Georgia and Illinois and is launching in another state very soon. It’s growing at a double-digit clip monthly, too, Jodin says.
Beycome is one of the companies that Endeavor Miami, an affiliate of the global Endeavor organization supporting entrepreneurship, announced today as the nine startups participating in the Fall Cohort of its ScaleUp Program. The ScaleUp Program is a four-month growth program designed to support startups with high-growth potential in the Florida ecosystem in creating a path to scale.
The cohort includes tech companies in real estate, immigration, cryptocurrency, linguistics, human resources and drone operation and orchestration.
For instance, Humantelligence is the first agile culture management platform to operationalize team cultures. With Humantelligence, leaders can improve collaboration, drive team performance, hire for culture, and build inclusion across a company day by day, all in one solution, says Founder and CEO Juan Betancourt. “With tools designed to generate more engaging and inclusive daily interactions between employees, Humantelligence drives productivity across the organization in an easy, scalable way – based on shared understandings.”
Like others in the cohort, Betancourt is scaling up Humantelligence. Humantelligence doubled its revenue from 2020 to 2021, and in the past 18 months Humantelligence has won 12 HR industry awards. Betancourt hopes the Scale-Up Program will help Humantelligence strategically with product focus, go-to-market strategy and positioning, and with raising capital more efficiently. “Lastly, we would like to figure out how to increase demand at the top of the funnel of our lead generation marketing campaigns,” Betancourt says.
Entrepreneurs like Betancourt and Jodin were selected based on many factors that include being based in Florida, having an annual revenue between $800K – $2.5M, two or more full-time employees and product-market fit. Each company was vetted based on its ability to scale while the founder was assessed on entrepreneurial grit, the ability to dream big and the desire to pay it forward to the next generation of entrepreneurs.
“We choose entrepreneurs who not only fit the selection criteria, but also the overall mission of Endeavor: individuals who can transform economies with the companies they are building if they can dream big enough,” said Claudia Duran, Managing Director of Endeavor Miami. “The companies we selected for our ScaleUp Program Fall Cohort will be the next class of high-growth entrepreneurs to make a difference in our community,” said Duran.
