“You never change things by fighting the existing reality. To change something, build a new model that makes the existing model obsolete.”― Buckminster Fuller
Kinect Capital touches 60+ companies per year, and these companies go on to achieve big results. Our alumni companies include MyFamily.com (now Ancestry.com), Liingo (acquired by 1-800-CONTACTS), Omniture (acquired by Adobe), High West Distillery (acquired by Constellation Brands), & Recursion Pharmaceuticals among others. Our programs are primarily supported by annual sponsorships and are free or low-cost to startups. The Kinect Capital Subscription Program is designed to assist Kinect Capital to become more sustainable while continuing to offer free to low-cost programming to startups.
Kinect Capital was founded in 1983 and has a deep history of assisting entrepreneurs in their fundraising efforts. Historically, 70% of the startups that participate in the Investor Choice Program go on to raise capital within 12 months and 80% of alumni companies are in business after 10 years (directly or via acquisition).

Subscription Members will participate in structured networking opportunities with other service providers and referral networks, be able to volunteer to build the next generation of entrepreneurs and industry-leading companies, and build relationships with startup CEOs – 70% of whom will raise capital within 12 months.
