About KOYA Innovations

Coming out of the pandemic, we invited a group of founders living in Austin to meet and share what they were working on. 37 showed up and enjoyed the in-person networking so we decided to make this a monthly event and named it FIESTA (Founders, Investors, Entrepreneurs, Startups, Techies, and Austin newcomers). Attendance grew to over 350 which required new software to be created to help ensure checking in to the event went smoothly and attendees could easily connect with each other during and post the event. Event organizers started asking us to use our software for their events. At this point, KOYA pivoted to build out the platform to provide seamless check-ins, effective networking through QR name tags, and valuable data insights for sponsors, event organizers, and attendees.
