Scollar Inc, a Silicon Valley-based animal health technology startup, announced plans to relocate its headquarters to Kansas City, Missouri, to launch its suite of products and expand the company in the Animal Health Corridor. Scollar will scale its administrative, customer success, sales, and marketing teams in Kansas City.
“We are thrilled to welcome Scollar to our state,” said Missouri Governor Mike Parson. “Missouri has more than 8,000 projected tech openings across the state, and we are determined to fill them. We look forward to working with companies like Scollar to continue growing and developing high paying, high demand technology jobs in Missouri.”
Designed for everything from cats to cattle, Scollar is a full stack open platform consisting of three tightly integrated technologies – a modular smart collar, a mobile app, and a data cloud service. The technology is designed to address the needs of pet parents, protein producers and veterinarians, as well as animal service providers and product manufacturers.
Scollar CEO and Co-Founder Lisa Tamayo selected Kansas City after presenting at the Kansas City Animal Health Investment Forum in 2018.
“I was delighted with the vibrant community here in Kansas City and believe it is the perfect place for Scollar to rapidly scale in the US and globally,” Tamayo said.
“We have been very impressed with Scollar since their selection to present at the 2018 Animal Health Investment Forum – they are truly helping to shape the future of animal care,” KC Animal Health Corridor President Kimberly Young said. “I am confident they will fit right in to KC’s existing animal health ecosystem and grow quickly due to the globally significant concentration of expertise in our area.”
Scollar plans to create a developer community to grow the features and functions of its platform and will be recruiting a tech-savvy workforce for its staffing needs. In the next 4 years, the company will begin recruiting engineering and development teams, sales and marketing professionals, as well as general and administrative management.
