On Tuesday, December 18th, GTAN members, entrepreneurs and special guests, including students and professors from The Lazaridis School of Business and Economics, gathered at Bingemans for the last Investor Meeting of 2018.
Attendees heard pitches from two early-stage companies: SmartTones Media and Chalk.
The first pitch of the night came from Daryl Hemingway, Founder and CEO of SmartTones Media. SmartTones Media combines their Fan Engagement Platform for brands with Sports Loyalty Programs to deliver relevant calls-to-action by connecting TV, radio and sports directly to smartphones and other devices. SmartTones Media solves the biggest problem for traditional media: attribution.
For the second pitch of the night, attendees heard from William Zhou, CEO of Chalk. Chalk is an education software that connects the curriculum, instruction, and assessment process in small, independent schools and large, national school networks to provide real-time insights for educators to improve academics.
