It’s Demo Day time at New York City’s ERA (Entrepreneurs Roundtable Accelerator). As we’ve done with previous cohorts, here’s a look at the ten teams graduating today, and what they’ve got to offer.

Bookalokal

Think roughly ‘Airbnb for dinner parties and tasting sessions’. Bookalokal describes itself as “a social dining platform for gastronomic events, usually hosted by locals in their homes.” Using the platform, you can book a place at dinners, food tours, cooking classes and more.

CommonKey

CommonKey allows businesses to manage employees’ access to cloud-based Web applications without having to give everyone the password. Managers can easily add and revoke access to individual services. The company says that it has “redefined identity management for the emerging cloud-IT world.”

 

CUPS

Connecting independent coffee shop with prospective new customers, CUPS is a subscription service that offers prepaid, discounted plans. Users interact with the service through an iOS or Android app. The idea is to let the ‘little guys’ compete with the loyalty programs offered by big coffee shop chains.

Dashride

With the likes of Uber and Lyft growing fast, established taxi firms have more competition than ever. Dashride is designed to make these companies more efficient by replacing their back-office operations with a white-labelled platform. It handles aspects of their business like booking and communication.

Mezzobit

Mezzobit is aimed at publishers and marketers, improving website performance and cutting IT costs through a free tag-management system. A paid product is a firewall aimed at preventing data leakage.

MezzobitOwnOut

With the snappy tagline “OwnOut helps brands steal customers,” this is a platform that connects brands with consumers that bought their products through third-party retailers. Customers can share their buying preferences in return for money-saving offers, and brands get a direct marketing channel to customers they may otherwise have missed out on.

Shopalytic

As with Retsku, Shopalytic is all about retail data but in this case, specifically e-commerce. Aimed at small and mid-size sellers, the service provides plain-English, easy to understand reports about sales, customer behavior, promotions, inventory, and marketing effectiveness.
