NEW Competition to Find the Next Enterprise Startup Unicorn

September 14, 2021 — Compa today announced it was named a first-place winner of The Pitch, a new competition for enterprise startups hosted by Constellation Research. The industry wide two-day event brought together startup founders, enterprise technology decision makers, venture capitalists, and system integrators to identify the next big player in innovation. Compa was chosen as a leading startup in Future of Work & Employee Experience.

Compa, an offer management platform that works like a “deal desk” to enable recruiters to create intelligent offers, was represented by Co-founder & CEO Charlie Franklin. “Talent acquisition teams are navigating a white-hot job market with a growing number of candidates receiving multiple offers,” he explained. “Compa is a new way for recruiters to discover the winning offer and close more candidates. We’re thrilled the judges recognized the growing need for talent leaders to ensure offers are fair and competitive, and designed to win.”

To kick off the competition, over 100 enterprise startups from around the world were evaluated. Preliminary qualified applicants submitted 7-minute pitch videos of their latest ideas. The Constellation Academy judges determined finalists in six different categories, and invited these companies to a closed room event to be grilled for 90 minutes. The Pitch winners were chosen for having the most innovative solutions, the highest growth in stakeholder wealth, and the best transformative business models.

“The winners of The Pitch are arguably some of the best enterprise tech startups in their early stages of growth,” said R “Ray” Wang, chairman and founder of Constellation Research. “The Constellation Academy judges found it hard to choose from so many impressive finalists, but this year’s winners stood out from the rest based on their creative ideas and compelling pitch of growth and success. The Pitch was a hit with both the participants and judges, and we’re already looking forward to next year.”

The Pitch was held as a virtual event this year, but Constellation plans to hold the event in a hybrid format in years to come. For more information, visit
