On this episode of the Startup of the Year Podcast, Frank Gruber, Co-Founder and Co-CEO of Established and Co-Founder of Established Ventures, talks with Ben Hood who is the Co-Founder & CTO at WattBuy (wattbuy.com).
Wattbuy is a one-of-a-kind energy marketplace that helps you lower your annual electricity bill by up to 40%. They work with only PUC-licensed energy companies to provide you with options specifically tailored to your home - allowing you to have confidence that you are getting the right services at the best price. They just added an additional $10 million to their Series A, bringing the total funding to $13.25 million for this round (vcnewsdaily.com/wattbuy/venture-capital-funding/ptgcttqrzp). The guys also talk about their excitement about Elon Musk and Tesla's energy efforts.
The 2021 Startup of the Year Summit is coming up in January 2022! We are going to be sharing some exciting news about the Summit in the very near future, so please make sure to keep an eye out for that news.
We also once again talk about Finmark, which is financial planning software for startups for revenue forecasting, cash projections, and runway.

Startup of the Year helps diverse, emerging startups, founding teams, and entrepreneurs push their company to the next level. We are a competition, a global community, and a resource. Startup of the Year is also a year-long program that searches the country for a geographically diverse set of startups from all backgrounds and pulls them together to compete for the title of Startup of the Year.
The program includes a number of in-person and virtual events, including our annual South By Southwest startup pitch event and competition. All of which culminate at our annual Startup of the Year Summit, where the Startup of the Year winner is announced, along with an opportunity at a potential investment.
Established is a consultancy focused on helping organizations with innovation, startup, and communication strategies. It is the power behind Startup of the Year.
