Scott Tanksley/Authentity

Authentity provides a software tool that leads people through a face-to-face conversation in 30 minutes or less. Rather than answering a computer, they catalyze people talking to people, which raises the engagement level of the participants and generates understanding and buy-in. That’s a local win, but they’re also able to connect and report these conversations at scale to give leaders insight on a topic and faster, more actionable data from their stakeholders. Their initial users have been teams in large companies, and they’ve been affectionately called “Undercover Boss in a Box”.
