Two Technical.ly Brooklyn faves have accepted entrance into Manhattan’s prestigious Entrepreneur’s Roundtable Accelerator (ERA).

Payfully and TwoSense, both written about first in these here webpages, will relocate to Manhattan and go through the four-month accelerator, with access to ERA’s thick rolodex, free services, abundant mentorship and demo day stocked with investors.

Payfully is a a financial services platform for the peer-to-peer rental market. We did a profile of cofounder Luis Scull’s harrowing visit back to his native Venezuela in July.

TwoSense is a mobile SDK for continuous, invisible user authentication using behavioral biometrics. The company has pivoted (drink) since we first profiled cofounder Dawud Gordon almost two years ago, but the underlying technology remains.

ERA has graduated a good number of startups that have gone on to become successful. Even just here in the Brooklyn market, Dog Parker and Kitsplit have all thrived in recent months. In all, ERA’s alumni have over a $1 billion in market cap.
