Founded in Chicago with a belief that our net worth is equal to the quality of our network. And our network is measured by the quality of our relationships not the number of social connections we have.
We believe the mobile CRM is broken so we designed Kahoots for the mobile professional first and the business you work for second. Our design principles were three-fold:
- Help develop our network not hand it over to the company CRM,
- Use technology to identify and nail every follow-up opportunity,
- Be stupid simple to use.
Kahoots is the best of a CRM system without the cost, complexity, or being forced to hand over your network to your company.

Blue Crates Moving Rental is the most convenient and affordable way to take the hassle out of moving. Instead of trudging down to your local hardware store to buy a bunch of cardboard boxes that you have to make, breakdown, and throw away, just use Blue Crates. Our industrial strength crates and wardrobes allow you to order online and have everything brought right to your door, usually for less than the price of cardboard boxes. When you’re finished with your move, we’ll come to your new place and pick up our empty crates and wardrobes (we can also help with your move, furniture included – see Bluecrates.com/moving for details). In addition to being affordable and convenient, our crates and wardrobes are much more durable than those collapsing boxes too, making your things safer in transit.
ParqEx is a technology company that connects owners of private parking spots to people looking for parking. In urban areas where parking demand is high but available options are scarce or expensive, ParqEx makes additional supply available to the driving public by listing exclusive inventory owned by local residents and businesses.
Using ParqEx, parking owners are able to make some supplemental income from an underutilized asset while renters get access to exclusive inventory in more convenient and hard-to-park locations.
ParqEx believes that when communities come together there is no challenge big enough – including solving urban parking. ParqEx is unique as it helps solve urban parking by not only adding parking supply for the public to use, but also helping communities to earn some additional income. It’s a win-win-win scenario – for drivers, parking owners, and the community as a whole.
