The security tool startup ventured through The Founder Institute’s first Canadian cohort in Montreal 2014, and it is now part of Startup Next Spring 2015 cohort.

Logrr wants to cut the costs of identity management by 50% and increase the level of security. Logrr’s mission is to connect employees to cloud applications through a Single Sign On, using digital signatures. Founder Julien Denaes states:
"We started by thinking about two facts: People always have their smartphone with them and passwords are weak...From there we decided to create a platform that enables you to authenticate without using password at all.” - Julien Denaes, CEO at Logrr
Logrr is currently enrolled in the Spring 2015 cohort of Startup Next in Montreal. The program is managed by UP Global Facilitator Sergio A.
