The Problem

While smart home technology is pervasive inside of most homes, most landlords and developers have not been able to embrace technology to improve efficiency and reduce costs because of a last-mile connectivity gap. Therefore, many rely on manual processes and the “eyes of the tenant” to manage their properties and identify problems, which leads to waste, property damage, or other bad outcomes.

What The Company Does

ePropertyCare solves this problem with a modular and scalable smart building platform that operates over the cellular network, thereby solving the connectivity gap that many landlords have to their buildings. …

The Problem

It is extremely challenging for bike and scooter riders to find low-stress, low-traffic routes. The micromobility community’s biggest concern is feeling safe while riding. In the U.S., an estimated 110 million people use micromobility vehicles each year. In various areas, ridership has increased by 80% to 120% since COVID-19 began, with one electric bike company reporting a 297% increase in demand in 2020. Unfortunately, there are over 500,000 emergency room visits every year related to bike and scooter accidents, according to the CDC. This is a major concern, as over half of Americans would bike more if it were safer.

The Problem

Currently, 90% of revenue generated from a scooter trip goes to maintaining and keeping that scooter on the streets — warehouse rent, gig economy employees, charging, damage, and city approval. On top of that, those scooters that are designed for commuters are predominately used from Friday through Sunday by tourists.

The Problem

When it comes to research and learning about your skin and hair, most of the data provided is not very comprehensive, and really just images of white or lighter skin tones. Additionally, while the mirror is also one of the most used objects in every home, it has not been reinvented or innovated much since its infant stages. The problem the Muse Mirror is solving is the convenience and complexity of identifying advanced skin disorders and abnormalities.

What The Company Does

The company has created the Muse Mirror, a 24-inch tall smart mirror with interactive video technology. The company is working and researching with…

A real-time tissue imaging and diagnostic platform to standardize sample collection quality control

Image for post
Image for post

The Problem

One in five biopsies fail to make a diagnosis, resulting in thousands of procedures being repeated at a direct expense to the hospital. While there is a manual technique to verify sample quality, its implementation is limited because it requires on-site pathology services. This requirement is impossible for the vast majority of hospitals who physically ship their samples to off-site pathology services like Quest and Lab Corp. This failure of our modern diagnostic workflow results in thousands of patients left in limbo as they wonder what might be happening inside their bodies.

What The Company Does

Pathware is creating a digital link between the…
