“PROTO Accelerator has been THE key to getting Supportomate from zero to 10. As soon as the program started, PROTO did absolutely everything to put the startups in front of local insurance carriers. This gave us countless opportunities to get our foot in the door and interact with the appropriate decision-makers. Thanks to PROTO’s constant support and great personal connections, Supportomate was able to sign a paid pilot with a carrier.”
