Tech startups continue to grow in Newark

BY Leah Mishkin, Correspondent |

Nine tech startups companies that were part of Newark Venture Partner’s spring 2019 cohort pitched investors at the venture fund’s sixth Demo Day. Entrepreneurs’ fields ranged from insurance tech, health tech, augmented reality and HR tech.

The companies were selected out of more than 2,000 applicants to participate in a 12-week program.

Newark Venture Partners has 65 portfolio companies, including this class, and 31 maintain a presence in Newark — growing the Brick City’s mission of becoming the Silicon Valley of the east.
