Testimonials - Delivering Great Outcomes

The KITE team brought immense value to the 2013 PepsiCo Digital Summit by curating 30+ founders for a networking reception and eight speed pitch demos for a competition during our event. KITE brought both digital insights and keen analyst skills to narrow down the right startup solutions for our category of top volume customers. Our summit was really elevated by their ability to supply great potential partners that were unique and on strategy, along with an intuitive and powerful app to privately share our thoughts about these companies with each other. Overwhelming feedback from the majority of attendees was that the innovation inputs exceeded their expectations.

John Ross, PepsiCo Digital Team

We feel strongly that Mark Silva and his team [KITE] are well connected and they have been true partners in helping us innovate quickly -- not only by making key strategic introductions, but also fostering longer term relationships.

Ed Kaczmarek, Director of Innovation and Emerging Technology at Mondelēz International

We were invited by KITE to attend a major brand's Digital Summit this year, selected out of an initial batch of 400+ startups. The opportunity to network with this major brand's teams & a variety of other brand partners was a once in a lifetime opportunity. Winning the pitch fest out of eight startups and getting a contract with this major brand was a game changer. KITE is the best tool out there for marketers to sift through the sea of options when selecting startups to work with. KITE's great for startups too, because they help you refine your marketing message & have tools to help you stand out. If you are an innovative startup, brand or agency, you should be using KITE.

Dylan Conroy, VP of Sales, Channel Factory

We are excited to a part of KITE. So far, they have already delivered value for us as they have helped us get in front of top brands that would have been hard for us to reach on our own.

Jon Vlassopulos, Founder and CEO, Trailerpop
