CellTrak’s History:

In September 2006, CellTrak started operations as a very early-stage company whose product technology was still at the incubator stage. CellTrak’s four employees at the time, including two who were part-time, all worked from home. The company accelerated its product development and by September 2007, it offered a sound product to the marketplace. It developed strategic partnerships with mobile phone carriers to handle the data transmitted between homecare workers and their employers, and interfaced with the software to handle scheduling, billing and management chores. 

CellTrak’s investor is MK Capital, a Chicago venture capital firm that invests in companies at all stages of the funding lifecycle. Mark Koulogeorge, its managing general partner, has served on CellTrak’s board of directors since 2006. MK Capital has provided far more than the $4.5 million CellTrak has raised in its two rounds of funding. It has hooked up the company with mobile phone carriers and has helped it, specifically, with counsel on working in the Canadian market. In addition MK Capital provides incubations guidance to CellTrak assisting with new technologies, global growth initiatives and industry partnerships. Michael Wons, President and CEO of CellTrak shared, “working with the team at MK Capital has been one of the reasons that CellTrak has been able to create strategic sustainable growth and relevance in the home and community care industry”, Wons added, “working with MK Capital is like being incubated within a $200M technology company…something that you do not see enough of nowadays”.
