Sam Ulu, CEO of Kandid.ly and Startup Runway winner, said, “The greatest part about this whole experience is not necessarily the prize money- though, that was great- but the opportunity to let more people know about Kandid.ly, because we really do believe that our company satisfies an unmet need in the market.”
Borrowing Magnolia CEO Tyler Ewing summed up her Startup Runway experience as energizing and insightful.
