Highline BETA is also committing to invest a minimum of $25,000 in one of the startups that pitches in the Corporate-Startup Innovation Zone.

Ideally we'll invest in a startup that begins forging a meaningful partnership with one of our corporate partners.

Through our launch of the Corporate-Startup Innovation Zone, Highline BETA will lead the way in bringing startups and corporates together in new and exciting ways.
