Arch Data Intelligence advances to final round in Alabama Launchpad Business Plan competition

Arch Data Intelligence, the Huntsville-based software startup formed by three UAHuntsville graduates, will use nearly $25,000 in seed money from the Alabama Launchpad Business Plan Competition to spur its marketing efforts, say company cofounders Tony Rainoldi and Jason Martin.

The two AMRDEC software engineers, who with UAH MBA graduate Brad Chassee started the company in summer 2011, said their immediate focus in on building awareness and market share for their search engine product Arch Patent. They plan to spend some of the money on advertising, search engine optimization, and production of graphics and marketing materials.

Of three UAHuntsville entrants, Arch Data Intelligence was the only one to make it to the pre-seed, or proof of concept stage. They joined a select field of four companies of a field of 16 to share a $100,000 startup capital pool. "We were the only team that actually had a product," said Rainoldi.
