KiSS App Launches on Valentine's Day


Congratulations to Sam Lurye on the Valentine's Day launch of his app KiSS that helps High School students gauge the interest of their crushes. This "sweet and innocent" app hopes to use technology to take the awkwardness and embarrassment out of finding out if an attraction is mutual. Sam knows this demographic well - he is a 16 years old junior at Lincoln Park High School. Sam is also a serious entrepreneur and Associate Resident at Catapult.
