Nelnet Grants $120,000 Prize to Video Recruiting Startup

In May, Nelnet sponsored the second annual Inside/Outside Innovation Summit, a three-day conference at the Graduate Hotel in Lincoln. The Inside/Outside Summit brings together startup companies, corporate teams, and innovators within the community, allowing them to learn from one another about new trends and methods in their respective industries.

As part of Nelnet’s commitment to innovation, diversification, and growth, Nelnet partnered with other Lincoln businesses to award a $120,000 prize to Alyss Analytics for impressing the judges during the Summit pitch competition.

Alyss Analytics, based in Wichita, Kansas, is a startup working to revolutionize the way job candidates are recruited and interviewed, using facial mapping to highlight soft or intangible skills like speech tone and facial expressions.

Nelnet is proud to have contributed to the Inside/Outside Innovation Summit and extends congratulations to Alyss Analytics.
