MouseBelt is excited to announce our newest addition to the accelerator: RewardStream--headed by the talented Max Colbert. RewardStream enhances review services using blockchain technology and aims to be the future of review incentivization and reward systems. At only 19 years old Max has built quite an impressive resume in the tech space. We have enjoyed getting to know him better and would like to introduce him to you:
Max has been an avid entrepreneur since the age of 12 when he co-founded Menlo App Academy, which has been featured in Anderson Cooper Live, NBC News, Forbes, USA Today, and TechCrunch. He wanted to compensate for the lack of computer science courses in schools by providing extracurricular peer-to-peer classes for kids ages 11-17. At ages 15 and 16, Max interned at Salesforce, working as a software developer in the Analytics Cloud, developing features for the mobile analytics dashboard. Max has also developed various iOS and Android applications as well as auto-purchase bot chrome extensions. His most popular mobile app netted over 250,000 downloads on the iOS App Store.
He also co-founded Nephoz, a business focused on using and selling his optimization programs and auto-purchase chrome extension bots, primarily for the one billion dollar lifestyle brand Supreme. In 2016, Max became intrigued by Blockchain technology. He is passionate about Bitcoin and the future of cryptocurrencies like Ethereum. His most recent iOS App “Cryptex: Crypto Portfolio & Tracker,” monitors and displays real-time cryptocurrency and portfolio data for over 500 cryptocurrencies.
Max originally found us through our University Grant Program but we decided his project was too promising not to offer him a spot in our accelerator. We are very much looking forward to working with him and improving the review and rewards process.
