Recording and transcribing app won 2016 RJI Student Competition 

Editor's note: The Recordly team was also selected to be one of 12 startups to participate in 1871's 16-week incubator program WiSTEM (Women in Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics) in Chicago.  

The Missouri Innovation Center has announced the first four startups that will receive investment through its $2.1 million Mid-MO Tech Accelerator fund, and more deals could be on the way soon. 

Innovation center leadership has been screening startups that work with digital technologies, considering the product, team and market of each company that applies.

“All four of these had a good lineup with all three things,” said Bill Turpin, president and CEO of the Missouri Innovation Center, a Columbia organization that supports high-growth businesses and runs the accelerator fund. “All four are in huge, growing markets.”

The four startups are:

  • NVisionAg, which was founded by Peter Scharf, a plant sciences professor at the University of Missouri. The agricultural product uses aerial photos from planes, drones or satellites to generate data designed to help farmers optimize fertilizer application.
  • Recordly, an iOs application that enables users to instantly create and share annotated transcripts of audio interviews. Recordly was created by a team of MU students, including Sintia Radu, Anna Maikova, Iaryna Mykhyalyshyn and John Gillis, for the 2016 Reynolds Journalism Institute Student Competition, which Recordly won.
