The Best Summit Yet.

Three days in Los Angeles to celebrate the 2015 K50, who flew in from all over the world.

The 7th Annual Kairos Global Summit was a huge success thanks to our partners, speakers, K50, Kairos Regional Execs and Fellows.

50 Extraordinary Startups

Over 100 Venture Capitalists and Investors

200 Entrepreneurs from all over the world

300 Business Leaders and Mentors

On October 12-14, 2015, the Kairos Society hosted several hundred of the most engaged entrepreneurs, investors and thought-leaders in Los Angeles for our 7th annual Kairos Global Summit. It was thrilling for us to have all 50 of the K50 companies represented by over 75 founders who flew in from all over the world. Investors who attended had a chance to get a first-look at early-stage startups across verticals like med-tech, logistics, enterprise and IoT. Several of our partners gave out cash prizes to winning companies that they interviewed during the Summit, and launched what will be long-term relationships. Read about the prizes and winners here.
