One of the business plans that spun out of the Technology Management Program's 2009 Annual New Venture Competition, TrackR, recently secured a $50M Series B round funding. Among the participating investors were the Foundry Group, Amazon Alexa Fund, DoCoMo Capital, The Glenmede Trust and Bespoke Strategies.
