Kane Is Able was among the companies that sponsored the recent Penn State University Supply Chain Entrepreneur Pitch Contest , which saw teams of students develop ideas for new business ventures in the supply chain space.
Students presented these ideas to a panel of supply chain experts in the style of the Shark Tank TV series. KANE's CFO, Troy Mascarenhas , served on the panel of "sharks" (sorry, judges) that evaluated each prospective business in terms of its viability as a supply chain management product or service.
According to KANE's Senior Director of Marketing, Alex Stark, "This Penn State project addresses two key issues in the logistics industry: Innovation and the development of young talent. We are happy to be involved, both as a participant and a financial sponsor. "
The supply chain pitch contest was put on by Penn State's Smeal College of Business.
