Knightscope Winning Investors, Struggling With Growth

By: John Honovich, Published on Oct 16, 2018

While Knightscope's new financials show the company only winning 11 new customers in the past 12 months, the company continues to win new investors.

Two of the notable positive moves for the company are its NYC showcase and its participation in the 'Total Wealth' summit as shown in the images below:

In this note we look at:
