Ocoos, the first
start-up company to enter the Power Plant Business Incubator, will graduate from
the facility on November 30. Founded in 2011, Ocoos offers a cloud-based platform
which allows small businesses to create a web presence with mobile, e-commerce,
CRM, analytics and scheduling capabilities. The company currently employs 10.
Dr. Rahul Razdan, Ocoos CEO, commented, “Our graduation comes at an exciting time in our company’s growth. In the last two years, Ocoos has had over 500 customers in its beta program. Now, we are shifting gears and accelerating business development. The Power Plant Business Incubator has been an important resource for us and we look forward to staying connected as it continues attracting, growing and graduating companies like our own.”
In 10-15 minutes, business owners can build a website on Ocoos, integrate social media and take advantage of a host of powerful tools. This allows owners to spend more time working on their business and less time worrying about the internet and changing technology.
“The jump to mobile search and hand-held devices are great examples of how fast technology shifts,” said Richard Feehan, Ocoos Director of Business Development. “The Ocoos platform keeps businesses ahead of the curve with a complete mobile solution; allowing them to adapt to their customers while capturing new market opportunities.”
“Ocoos not only embodies the entrepreneurial spirit of the region, but they also represent an emerging technology sector,” said Kevin T. Sheilley, President & CEO of the Ocala/Marion County Chamber & Economic Partnership (CEP). “Upon their graduation from the incubator, we are pleased that Ocoos has chosen to remain in the downtown area with a new office on South Magnolia Avenue.”
Doug Cone, Board Chairman of the CEP agreed saying, “Dr. Razdan and his team are to be commended for building a remarkable company. We are honored to have them as a part of our business community and we look forward to seeing their progress continue here in Ocala.”
