The DMZ said goodbye to another longtime company last week, Greengage Mobile.
Greengage — a platform for enterprises to act out corporate-wide environmental and social goals through mobile app engagement — was founded in early 2011 by Dessy Daskalov and Lindsey Goodchild, and arrived at the DMZ shortly afterwards.
In its early days, the company led events for RCS Frosh week, promoting environmental sustainability amongst the Ryerson community.
Later on in the year, the company was selected to be part of JOLT, an early-stage accelerator program that focuses on transforming the way consumers and enterprises interact with technology.
When the DMZ was visited by His Royal Highness Prince Charles in May 2012, Lindsey had the opportunity to share the concept and vision of Greengage with him.
2013 proved to be another great year for Greengage. They closed a successful round of funding, raising $1 million from accelerator funds and angels. “The commitment by our investors is a testament to the tremendous results that Greengage has been able to achieve in the market,” Lindsey said of the funding.
Meetings with high-profile people continued; the team pitched to Ontario Premier Kathleen Wynne during her visit to the DMZ that fall.
In February, Greengage was announced as one of the first recipients of Ontario’s new Youth Investment Accelerator Fund Program (Youth IAF). And now, the company has left the DMZ to move into their very own space.
We wish Greengage continued success!
