Member Profile: UPTOP’s acquisition of Yorango

Joint Memo by Adam Kirsch CEO of Yorango and Francis Barletta CEO of UPTOP.

Ithaca, NY – January 8, 2018 – Today we are pleased to announce that we are joining forces with UPTOP. Yorango, a real estate tech company, backed by Excell Partners, CenterState CEO, and Startup Labs, has entered into a definitive agreement to be acquired by UPTOP. Yorango was part of Cornell’s eLab, an accelerator program for student startups that is dedicated to accelerating the top Cornell University startups. The resources provided by the program proved prudent to the growth and success of the company.

 

To customers and supporters, we believe that joining forces with UPTOP creates a significant opportunity for the group to be our spiritual successor and move even faster toward our aligned vision of creating innovative solutions within real estate.

 

“We are excited to join forces with a team that has built relationships with landlords and renters around the Ithaca area,” said Francis Barletta, CEO of UPTOP. “We believe that Yorango’s CEO Adam Kirsch, CTO Anton Gilgur, and their team members did a phenomenal job in creating a business that made renting simple for thousands of renters and their landlords which ultimately lead us to this decision.”

 

UPTOP has a demonstrated history of building innovative software and helping customers achieve their goals. We look forward to the opportunity to build off of the platform UPTOP has created to connect renters and landlords and automate the entire rental process on any device.

 

Stay tuned!

 

Onwards and upwards,
