WHO’S GETTING BUZZ
Lokalty [find our previous coverage here]: Our sincere apologies, as the local retail rewards startup was featured as one of Philly’s Coolest New Businesses by Business Insider (we reported on the list last week), but we failed to mention it.
CallGrader [find our previous coverage here]: The current DreamIt Ventures company that focuses on call-tracking gets featured in the Silicon Hills News. CallGrader came from San Antonio, Tx., and is currently seeking funding, which will determine where the startup is headquartered, according to the report. The team of four has applied to Benjamin Franklin Technology Partners for funding but hopes to find investment in San Antonio, so the founders don’t have to relocate, they said.
