Kairos Society Ventures

We back young founders who are innovating where established industries and governments have failed.

The Kairos 50

The K50 is our annual recognition of the 50 most innovative seed-stage companies founded by young entrepreneurs from around the world (<5% annual acceptance rate).

These young entrepreneurs fly to the Kairos Global Summit to meet with top investors and corporate partners as they scale their companies. We reveal our annual K50 on the trading floor of the New York Stock Exchange.

K50 Companies Include

“The Kairos 50 has been the single most valuable program I’ve experienced. Thanks to Kairos, we’ve gotten our company in front of the biggest investors in the world, have been featured at iconic industry events, and gained access to valuable business development opportunities."
