Caterpillar is hosting 10 startup companies from around the country in Peoria today. From their website:
This diverse group of Caterpillar leaders work in areas of technology and innovation throughout the company. But today, they’re wearing a different hat, as they take their seats on a panel of judges for the Caterpillar Startup Challenge Event. The Analytics & Innovation team, within the new Marketing & Digital Division, is leading the project, with the help of the Illinois Science and Technology Coalition.
The idea behind the project is to bring 10 startups from around the country right here to Caterpillar to pitch their vision – to explain why they should have the opportunity to solve problems alongside our Caterpillar team. The startups will have the chance to form a relationship with Caterpillar, while Caterpillar gains visibility to emerging technologies.
