Orlando, Fla. (September 30, 2021) – The newest company accepted into the UCF Business Incubation program is Startup Success Platform.

The technology firm is built to provide startup companies quick and affordable access to web and mobile applications, particularly focused on marketplace-type businesses.

“As Central Florida continues to grow as a technology hub, we are seeing a spike in companies looking to service the startup companies launching across the region,” says Rob Panepinto, director, Innovation Districts Strategy and Partnerships and senior strategic advisor, Partnerships and Innovation, University of Central Florida. “This company certainly identified a need for startups and has figured out how to provide it at an investment they can afford.”

Startup Success Platform uses their proprietary programming to develop individualized applications for companies.

In most cases, to have an app developed, a company could spend tens of thousands of dollars and take months to build. Startup Success Platform’s program is usually less than $5,000 and is complete in weeks.

“When trying to attract investors, it’s critical to showcase your company is truly working to capture all lines of revenue, especially online,” says Ken Sakal, the founder of Startup Success Platform. “We’re giving even the smallest of startups the opportunity to build their online presence early and robustly without breaking the bank.”

Sakal is very familiar with the UCF Business Incubation Program. Prior to starting this company, he was the head of product for AireHealth, a client of the Winter Springs Incubator. For his entire career, he’s worked with businesses developing technology.

As his new company grows, he will use that past experience to help the startup pitch to investors as well.

“It’s a very similar story with most businesses I’ve worked with,” Sakal says. “Your success is very dependent on how potential customers and investors view your company. This will help start-ups really put their best foot forward.”
