Even the toughest bike locks won't stand up to the most determined and well-equipped bike thieves. But a new startup is trying to prevent bike thefts altogether with the Skylock, its connected bike lock that can be controlled with a smartphone and sends real-time alerts when a lock is tampered with.

Velo Labs, the startup behind the device, launched a crowdfunding campaign on its website on Thursday to raise $50,000 for the production of its app-enabled lock.

Bringing Design, Development, Production and Marketing to the Table – Literally

Metronome3 (M3), a digital agency headquartered in the tech-centric district of NoHo, has been bringing marketing and creative solutions to clients’ since early 2011. Backboned by design and development personnel, the M3 Team is building strategic marketing campaigns for its dozens of active projects. Varying in vertical and size – the group has been laser-focused in the restaurant and hospitality industry since incubation.

Why restaurants and hospitality? It’s a chaotic and consistently failing vertical for many. “We found restaurants to be a great fit simply based on two understandings: 1) a lack of trained personnel and 2) a difficulty in adapting to the changing world of marketing and technology,” said Metronome3 Co-Founder, Max Kimble. After years of testing the marketplace and landing dozens of accounts, both in enterprise-level and stand alone establishments across the United States, M3’s new sub-venture will solely focus on the restaurant industry. Enter: Simmer Group.

Simmer Group will debut this week at two Los Angeles conferences: Restaurant High 2014 – Rock the Obstacles on May 9th and the UCLA Restaurant Conference on May 13th. With plans to scale across the United States throughout 2014, Simmer Group, a creative design, marketing and advertising agency, will lead businesses through the world of restaurant and hospitality marketing. For more information and about Simmer Group, visit http://www.simmergroup.com.

Simmer Group will also be partnered with service-industry focused human resource SaaS platform, SideSkills. Ryan McKenzie, CEO stated, “There is an exciting opportunity here – we really think Simmer Group is going to be an amazing partner. The ability to deliver outstanding results for their clients has really impressed us and there is no doubt they will continue to make waves throughout the restaurant scene.” With SideSkills and Simmer Group’s experience with the likes of powerhouse restaurant groups such as Lemonade, there is a unique opportunity to fulfill large, multi-unit restaurant clientele with top-of-line agency services across the board.

Metronome3, founded in 2011, is a digital agency specializing in creative design, social marketing, advertising and web design & development. Having worked with over 100+ businesses & brands, core-services have impacted Lemonade LA, AvroKo, Hospitality Holdings, Chef John DeLucie + Crown Group Hospitality, Sony Music Nashville, Elizabeth and James, Men’s Fitness Magazine, Bento Box Interactive, Sesame Workshop and the Alzheimer’s Drug Discovery Foundation to name a few. M3 is a proud strategic partner of the CFDA. For information contact, Max Kimble at max(at)simmergroup(dot)com or call 646.494.3605.
