One of 11 companies that participated in the competition's semi-finals in New York City in April, Convizit received the competition's $1M investment prize.
"We want to connect with the entrepreneurs that aim to lead the next revolution at the crossroad between data, machines, and humans," said Ayal Itzkovitz, Managing General Partner at Pitango, in describing the TRIFECTA competition.
"We decided to award the first-place prize to Convizit because we believe the company brings together a strong team, breakthrough technology and an area that is waiting for a big change," said Eyal Niv, Managing General Partner at Pitango.
