ALTR named one of Austin's 50 Startups to Watch in 2019

Fresh off one of its most active funding years to date, Austin tech has never been hotter, with the ecosystem’s innovation catching the attention of investors from around the world. And one of the reasons our tech community continues to shine so brightly is the number of fresh startups emerging from Austin.


Now in its fourth year running, our 50 Startups to Watch list highlights less than five years old that we think are bracing for a big 2019. This year’s list includes startups with big ambitions for everything from improving mental health to leveraging emerging technologies like blockchain, robotics, quantum computing and more. ALTR had been quietly operating since 2014 to develop secure, blockchain-based data storage for commercial use. Then, seemingly out of nowhere, the business made its grand entrance out of stealth with a $15 million funding in June.
