Teknovation
Ten start-ups are participating in the third iteration of the autoXLR8R program run by Tech 2020.

Everything in business has a lifecycle, whether it be products or services, and companies that thrive will manage their lifecycles well. Moreover, most everything in business now has some sort of data attached to it, and if companies do not know how to utilize that data, it’s not a valuable asset. What if there was a company that could not only help you manage your business’ lifecycles, but also manage and organize all of your data and use that data to help manage the rest of your business . . . all while using your business’ pre-existing conditions? Our company’s name is Condition Based Analytics (CBA), and this name was derived from our core offering: providing life cycle management, master data management, and analytical services from a condition-based approach.
