A no-code platform to fight modern cybercrime threats.

Online businesses lose over $50B each year to fraudsters, scammers and identity thieves, even though they spend three times that amount maintaining and updating their defenses. Attackers have no-code tools and click-to-deploy networks that put them at an unfair advantage against busy risk engineering teams.

The founders at SpecTrust have worked side-by-side with the hidden heroes fighting cybercrime for the better part of the last decade and they knew there was a better solution. …

Making saving social and attainable.

Backer is a social savings platform that makes it quick and easy to set up a 529 plan account and get family and friends involved as contributors (“backers”).

Backer has helped families save $20 million for college, with 40% of the money coming from grandparents, aunts/uncles, and friends of the family — a rate of gifting that’s 30x higher than the 529 industry average. With Americans carrying a record $1.8 trillion in student loan debt, Backer helps families give their child the prospect of financial freedom.

The 529 industry is a several hundred billion dollar opportunity, but it’s still fairly…

Bbot is building the only pure API, pure white label food/hospitality payments tech infrastructure platform in the market.

The Bbot co-founders, Steve, Luke and Greg, first met as officers and nuclear engineers while stationed at Naval Reactors in Washington, D.C. The three of them worked on instrumentation and control systems for submarines and aircraft carriers.

They kept in touch for many years after leaving the Navy, ultimately working together to develop the original Bbot, a ceiling-based robotic delivery system that delivers drinks to tables in restaurants. The robot evolved into software that allows guests to order and pay from wherever they are located on the property.

Today, Bbot offers a robust, configurable solution that helps 500+ restaurants, bars…

Zingtree’s powerful technology and world-class team make this a unique opportunity. We’re thrilled to welcome them to the Rally portfolio.

Tens of thousands of times a day, customer care teams and contact centers try to help people navigate complex situations — answering insurance questions, scheduling someone with the right physician, fixing a product, etc. Yet those agents typically have to hunt through docs and spreadsheets to find the right information, which leads to errors, slow resolution times and a sub-optimal experience for the customer.

Frontline teams crave better tools to translate complex information into clear actions, which is why we’re excited to announce our recent investment in Zingtree. Their no-code, interactive decision tree software helps teams create dynamic scripts that…
