Go for Launch: Hydrow, Crayon & Eightfold
Rowing, a full body exercise, doesn’t necessarily have to take place on the banks of a river. Exercise enthusiasts of any level can get the same workout at home using Hydrow, an at-home rowing machine that simulates the experience of the open water. A screen attached to the device allows users to explore beautiful waterways around the world — all from their living room.
In the most recent episode of Go for Launch, three startups, including Hydrow, pitched their products. Go for Launch is Innovation Leader’s series of live startup demos. During each episode, three startups pitch their solutions in 30 minutes. Then, our guest hosts ask questions to the entrepreneurs. After the webcast concludes, participants have the opportunity to connect with founders to ask their questions.
In addition to Hydrow, Crayon and Eightfold pitched their products. Crayon gathers available public data or data internal to companies (like information transmitted over Slack). Their software then uses artificial intelligence to categorize data and boil down the highlights for your team to use. Eightfold helps employees at companies grow their careers and increase their skills. Eightfold also uses AI to help teams avoid implicit biases when hiring.
This episode also features insights from Atif Rafiq, President of Customers, Commercial & Growth at MGM Resorts International. Sophie McNaught, Director for Silicon Valley Bank’s Corporate Relationship Management Group, co-hosts this episode. Silicon Valley Bank is also a sponsor of this series.
