This past Wednesday Career In STEM participated in Flight Night, a shark-tank style business pitch competition hosted by reSET in Hartford, CT. Focused on social entrepreneurship, each company had three minutes to share their ideas with an audience of investors, community members, and leaders. The night featured a great lineup of pitchers, including:
Career in STEM
Kiyomi Beauty, LLC
Thank you to everyone who came out to support us! SiggPay was named the “best company for growth potential”. Kazark News earned “best pitch”, and Kiyomi Beauty was awarded the “best new product” superlative. While Career In STEM was not among the winners, many important connections were made with STEM related companies in our home state of Connecticut – very much a win to us!
Career In STEM was founded as a solution for students and educators, and through events such as this we have come to realize that we are also ideally positioned as a solution for STEM related employers. Our high schools and colleges are not producing enough qualified workers, and baby boomers are retiring in mass. Simply put, there are many more available jobs in STEM than there are available workers. Achieving our next business milestones of scale and automation will help bridge the divide between school and work. Join us!
