We’re excited to have an amazing panel of judges using KITE to rate 15 fast-pitching startups at our KITE Flight (1:30pm to 2:30pm at WeWork Transbay), part of NewCo SF.
So, what exactly is a “KITE Flight”?
It’s a real-world version of what happens on our platform each day. On one side we have enterprise players, innovation leaders at global companies and agencies that help them solve business problems through “outside-in” Innovation (see the complete list of judges below).
On the other side, we have 15 founders prepared to pitch in under 2 minutes what they do and how they help solve brands’ and agencies’ business challenges.
In the middle is KITE, the software our judges will use to enter real-time evaluations and select notes. The judges will rate companies based on overall presentation and fit for their business.
The top three companies will receive direct introductions and follow-up meetings with potential partners and office hours coaching from KITE to secure a pilot program with one of our participating enterprises.
If you can’t join us in person today, October 7, follow the action at @getKITE.
