Protecting the backbone of the US economy by helping workers minimize work related injuries through technology and data
Kinetic Power: A project of CitySpark
While City Light Capital’s portfolio is limited to early stage companies with at least $1M in revenue, we bridge the gap between early stage innovation and venture equity investment through City Spark. This initiative allows our team and our network of mission-driven executives and entrepreneurs to advise and support select early stage companies that, like Kinetic, demonstrate the potential to generate both high financial returns and social impact.
No one should have to sacrifice their life for their livelihood. That's why Kinetic has set out to create the smartest safety device ever built: to protect our workforce and make workplaces safer.
