Broadening the On-ramp for Women-run Companies

MergeLane Came at the Perfect Time for Silicon Valley-based Mapistry

This is a guest blog post by Allie Janoch, CEO of Mapistry, MergeLane Alumni 2015.

Mapistry, a 2015 MergeLane alumni, is in the business of industrial stormwater. We’ve created an easy to use and affordable software to combat the challenges of stormwater regulations.

MergeLane came at the perfect time for Mapistry. We arrived with an open mind. Within the first week, we had been challenged to address a number of BIG issues we hadn’t been prioritizing or even thinking about. Sue, Elizabeth, and the Mergelane mentors helped us work through all of these challenges with both big picture discussions and hands-on help. We dramatically increased our revenue and made more progress in three months than we had made in the previous year. MergeLane gave Mapistry the kick in the pants that we needed to address the tough problems, and trained us to continue to do so after the program ended. The Mergelane team and mentors have continued to invest time and money in us, even after the program ended.

Since MergeLane (2015) we have increased our MRR 18 times, signed contracts with public entities and companies like AC Transit, Sims Metal, and ITRenew. (Most of our customers do not want to be made public because of the sensitivity of environmental compliance).

Looking forward to continued growth in 2017. If you’re interested in learning more, contact us.
