The Funded: 500 Startups names early batch founder as its COO

500 Startups has named a founder of a company from one of its earliest batches to be its chief operating officer.

Courtney Powell was in the startup accelerator and investor’s fourth batch in the summer of 2012 when it was still headquartered in Mountain View. Her Palo Alto-based startup PublikDemand provided an online platform to help consumers resolve complaints with big companies by using public pressure to get a response.
