ARCHON : Archon software is a multi-drone mission planner used for to design the automatic flights of the drones between recharging stations in a fixed geographical area. It also aggregates the acquired images/video to produce the data that the customer wants.
It will be the development framework of choice for the service providers (SP) that aim to deploy drones for surveillance, precision agriculture and infrastructure inspection. Ideally, the SP will have access to a proprietary set of hardware (drones, recharging stations, navigation ground stations) and will be able to use our software as a development framework to use the hardware and organize the data collected by the drones in a format useful for the customer.
Archon works integrating existing hardware, navigation and data processing software, in a similar way as system-design platforms are used to engineer processes in industrial automation.
Archon will be proprietary, and its use will be licenced to SP depending on the service.
While we expect that the existence of such a facilitator will provide great value to all companies that are now building imaging services with drones, in a few years time we will ourselves start to provide services in partnership with other hardware/software companies.
Babytuto : Babytuto solves the 3 important problems by integrating information with products and services sales according to each stage of the baby´s development.

BASTION Digital : First, we filter and curate the best available journalistic content from around the Spanish-language web, so that people do not have to read more, just better. Second, we provide an outlet for the many clever and knowledgeable minds who want to communicate deeper analysis, counter-intuitive views, beautifully-written material, to come and do so at BASTION.
As one of our YouNoodle judges pointed out, this type of “premium content” is more easily conceived than produced. By successfully leveraging our team’s rich and diverse social capital (Jimena has traveled around the world, studied at Harvard and Columbia and worked in Washington and Wall Street- Sebastián knows a tons of writers and artists in Argentina) we think we have struck the bull’s eye in terms of producing outstanding content, comparable at times with that of The New Yorker, with a fraction of the cost. This has made BASTION a cool place to write for, and as we keep nurturing and promoting our community of contributors, more and more approach us and premium content keeps rolling in. As the judge points out, the community-generated content business model is easy when content is good – our feedback indicates that our content is terrific.

Cryoocyte : During natural spawning seasons, far more fish eggs are produced than can be used. Cryoocyte provides services freezing excess eggs that fish farms produce, so farms can later thaw them to spawn new fish whenever needed during times of egg shortage.
Fish farms decide how many of their excess eggs they would like to pay to have frozen, and transport those eggs to one of our regional cryopreservation facilities for freezing and storage. Once spawning seasons end and fish farms are in need of high quality eggs that are not otherwise available through other mechanisms, they can request that a quantity of their eggs be returned. We ship our customers the eggs; the farms can then subsequently thaw, fertilize the eggs and spawn fish. This gives farms full-year access to their highest quality eggs and the ability to keep their farms fully stocked.
DeltaBid : All companies from big to small buy products and services from other companies, but before a company is going to buy anything they ask quotations from different suppliers to find the best one. This process is similar in all companies, the only difference is the amount of tenders a company has.
Most companies today use email and Excel to conduct tenders and ask quotations – the process is inefficient, hard to manage and not transparent. DeltaBid brings the entire process online, making it transparent and helping buyers to save time and companies to cut costs.
Our customers have said:
“DeltaBid has considerably enhanced the efficiency of our procurement processes on gas line construction and renovation works by making it more transparent and creating bigger competition between suppliers,” said Roman Bogdanovits, CEO, Gaasivõrgud, Estonian Gas distribution network operator.
“The transparency, uniformity and reliability that Deltabid delivers to our global team of buyers has led to very significant time and efficiency savings in our dynamic environment. We’ve been so impressed with their product we’ve become a strategic partner and investor in addition to being satisfied users,” said Arnold Engel, CEO, Vox Supply Chain.

Those pledges can be even a participation as a object of study. Kind of nerd? Maybe, but we believe it’s cool to have your gene sequenced or to have your name in a new gene discovered.
DroidBuddy.me : Droidbuddy offers a revolutionary approach to the “parent control” market. It is composed of 2 apps and an SDK, one designed for the parents and one for the kids. The kids oriented application is developed around a character DroidBuddy that acts as a companion to whatever the kids do on their tablets. Time spent on educational apps or content is awarded using a well developed gameification process while “improper” use of the tablet ( improper apps / pages ) is disliked by DroidBuddy. In the background the app creates value for the parents by collecting data regarding usage, behavior and information accessed by kids and sent in real time to the parents application where they will have precise insights on how their child is using the device and how this influences them. Value is captured by allowing parents to approach misbehavior in a constructive manner without forcefully blocking access to apps but instead having DroidBuddy influence the kids with rewards in a pleasant manner. Instant blocking options are available for improper content, if needed.DroidBuddy is actually a virtual parent that is keeping an eye out on children whenever real parents are not around.

“eTriage : Triage in an international system of classifying patient severity. Nurses perform triage by asking a sequence of questions. We have developed a proprietary algorithm that gathers the same information quickly and efficiently via an eTriage kiosk.
eTriage is an automated triage and registration system for hospital emergency departments. Patients entering the hospital begin by registering required information. After registration, patients choose their issue from a list of complaints. Their selection gives them a sub-screen with a list of the symptoms associated with their complaint. Upon completion of reporting their issue, the system will assign patients a severity classification that determines when they are seen by the triage nurse to confirm their symptoms and see the physician.
This is an entirely new concept in healthcare and is getting incredible reviews and feedback from the two sites where we have it installed. Emergency department surveys are used by hospitals to judge services provided to patients. eTriage increases overall satisfaction and hospital ratings. This increases hospital funding.
The main items of Intellectual Property are 1) the algorithm used to determine the patient severity and 2) the ability to interface with the hospital’s existing systems.
Etyacol Technologies Private Limited : At present Sappota is a cloud based android application manager to remotely distribute and manage custom developed enterprise applications.

Field Assist : Field Assist in an end-to-end on-field sales management tool that authenticates and assists a sales visit and smartly captures day to day sales activity to provided insights to increase the same.
The concept is putting physical tags (containing unique QR codes for the shops) and empowering the salesmen with an Android based mobile application. This application, which makes him scan these tags, thus capturing his attendances, allows him to prepare well by viewing last 5 sales made and today’s key targets, to enter today’s sales and to conduct on demand surveys. Collected data syncs with cloud in real time and provides live radar of the area to respective sales managers. This largely addresses the most common secondary sales problems faced by FMCG companies like authenticity, quality and productivity of visit, credit history of outlets, SKU wise and outlet wise weekly-monthly trends of sales, identify stores with slower sales and how to effectively up-sell or cross- sell different products. In addition, it also helps clients to check the prevalent brand presence and transport the entire information in a schematic manner to the DMS and ERP layer.
We have developed state-of-art algorithms (patents pending) for placing the tags and authenticating the visits.
Flyotech : Flyotech’s novel, patent-pending systems harness the ability of an insect native to North and South America, the Black Soldier Fly, to recycle organic waste into valuable feed, fuel, and industrial commodities.
Reared on organic waste in pollution-free, zero-emission containers, Black Soldier Fly Larvae (BSFL) can be immediately sold, live or dead, as feed for reptiles, chickens, and fish. We can also produce value-added products from BSFL: biodiesel, chitin, and high-protein feed. The fuel properties of biodiesel made from BSFL, i.e. density, viscosity, and cetane number, are comparable to those of canola oil-based biodiesel and meet the European Standard for Biodiesel, EN14214. Chitin and its derivative, chitosan, are versatile polymers used in medicine, biomedical research, cosmetics, and natural pesticides. Our patent-pending, high-protein Flymeal formula has an amino acid profile comparable to that of fishmeal and is high in all ten essential amino acids required by fish, thereby providing a less expensive, environmentally friendly alternative.
Our biorecycling process provides an exceedingly cost-effective service for treating organic waste. As BSFL ingest waste they sanitize and reduce it to an odorless residue. This residue will be further reduced by African Nightcrawler worms to castings, known as vermicast. Vermicast is a high-quality, fertile, fully-organic soil-amendment.
Fototea : Fototea’s platform allows clients to describe and publish their audiovisual project needs directly to our registered photographer database. Once the customer has accessed the platform, he or she might post a Request for Proposal (RFP) by specifying type of event or product need, date, time and location for two major services: Production of photography and video, and Editing of photography and video.
Photographers will access a job board and get mailed updates of these published projects, allowing them to provide a private quotation (closed envelope) on those of their individual interest. Finally, customers will select among the bidders for a photographer to fulfill the project by considering past reviews, quotation received and public portfolio, among others.
Our business model creates value for both sides of the platform. Photographers get the chance to acquire more clients with significantly less effort, giving them access to job opportunities that will allow them to develop as professionals. Our clients save time and effort by easily comparing and choosing artists while getting a lower cost solution for their photography, video production or editing needs. By pooling sale and marketing efforts, Fototea is able to capture value otherwise lost to market inefficiencies.

HMSolution : HMSolution will provide a water filtration system for removing arsenic and other heavy metals from water. Our team has built and tested an initial small-scale prototype, which has shown efficiency 40 times better than current residential filtration systems. The founders plan on applying their technology platform for industrial remediation as well.
Our proprietary technology is an elegant innovation of the iron-based adsorption technology. Our novel design provides constant, in-situ generation of iron oxide particles, using zero-valent iron (Fe) spheres. These particles adsorb both arsenite and arsenate, and allow for high removal efficiency.
Based upon our interviews with water treatment system contractors and homeowners, there is a general sensitivity to product price. We also know households do not follow the suggested filter replacement schedule. HMSolution has designed a system that will require minimal maintenance while assuring safe drinking water at all times. We project that our filtration products will be competitively priced while providing attractive margins to all points of the supply chain.
A provisional patent has been filed by Brown University. HMSolution has initiated negotiations with Brown for an exclusive option to license this and adjacent patents, with no royalty fee payable until the company generates a net profit.

Izgő Therapies : Our base product is a portable, multichannel, programmable signal generator, designed to meet electrical demands of human tissue stimulation. A device for personal use, a general device that is easily transformable by expansion kits to execute specific programs. Kits comprise sensors, controls and software, the complexity of which can vary on a wide range, but all of them built around and compatible with the solid core unit. Some of them make possible simple exercise movements, others complex actions, such as cycling or walking on paralyzed limbs. Complex kits will be implemented while others on sale already.
The project, in the first place, will grant the patients autonomy to complete everyday tasks and to practice sports alone, and allow them to do electrotherapy treatment in their homes or outdoors. It will ease their lives by not having to depend on the availability of physiotherapy centers, most of which are not equipped for functional stimulation and by not having to deal with daily transport to the centers.
The device will also be able to produce conventional electrotherapy waveforms, making possible for family members to profit from it, for acute pain treatment, muscle relaxation after sport, helping local metabolism, nerve stimulation, etc.

Likeeds : We are an ecommerce, thus we make money by selling goods and services.
Since we’re specialized on a very specific segment we optimize the customer and database acquisition process and leverage relationship with supplying partners and brands.
We help parents to get what they need easily and conveniently. We present to them the most extensive offering for their babies&kids in a convenient, trustworthy, and professional look&fell. Likeeds.com creates the right environment to show any kind of brand, from small creations to classy fashion designs. That’s why the biggest brands accept sell through us while banning out their presence from marketplaces (ie.Mercadolibre).
Selling online efficiently is a tricky and very technical business. A deep know-how is needed in many different disciplines (catalog management, traffic and conversion, technology, SEM, SEO, Social Marketing, etc., etc,) This kind of knowledge is not affordable for medium or small players. So their only option for selling online is relaying on marketplaces, where they can’t control the way their products are shown. Worst of all they compete against any kind of offering, even used products.
At Likeeds.com we are Brands’ partners because we help them in reaching their target and selling online, efficiently and conveniently.
LilyMedia : Kids will learn in a fun environment through technology and parents will check what they are learning and what skills are developing thanks to a psychological report that is created meanwhile his child is playing.
Linknovate : We cannot imagine the world without a website which finds the relevant experts and technologies for a set of keywords. Twenty years ago breakthroughs happened twice a year; today they happen almost every week. Companies need to know about them… since they cannot do all their research and product innovation in-house anymore (e.g. Apple, the paranoia of in-house development acquiring a core technology: Siri!).
Today this search works mainly off-line and manually. Engineers in companies read through too many documents (numerous non-relevant ones), create their own databases, or reach bilateral agreements with universities. Still, they miss much of the available data. And researchers spend up to 30% of their time writing proposals, need to constantly update their personal websites (which they don’t do), or research things which they aren’t fully passionate about.
What we are building is a professional network where these people can meet, interact, and come up with new ideas and products that can change the world.
There are many potential applications for this data. The one we know companies are more willing to try (and pay for!) is technology scouting and expert search. Why? Because they can reduce time-to-market cycles.
“liveTrust : It’s a system that allows people to measure their health signs. There are six separate sensors that connect to a core device that wirelessly send data to a gateway: sphygmomanometer, glucometer, thermometer, hearth rate sensor, breath rate sensor and oxymeter.
It is an online platform that orders and presents user’s data (either streaming or historically). In Chile there is not a system in telemedicine that reaches as many patients as we want to achieve.
· Stores a profile of users and suggests and promotes healthy habits.
· Warns users or healthcare agents about anomalies and allows video calls between them.
·Allows an accurate, simple, sleek, portable, low cost and constant monitoring for users.
·Detects problems sooner, thus protecting users and reducing costs.
·Improves the communication with healthcare providers through video conferences, allowing patient control after consultation.
·Users will have files with their personal health data, both recent and hitorical.
· Doctors will have access to it and make more informed decisions.
·Users will get news about healthy habits through the platform.
We sell the device and sensors. We use the Freemium model and ads for the platform. We plan to patent the brand and the industrial design.
Lotebox : Lotebox is a online system that helps small and medium trade business to share cargo containers with others companies that has similar shipping requirements. The system analyses the shipping data to find the best match based on origin, destination, cargo measure and category.
LYSIS : We deliver the information safely and automatically to the patient, presented in a way that the patient can understand and act upon it, even before consulting their doctor. This way, we propose a system of collaborative medicine where the patients are informed and involved in their treatment from the beginning, and we encourage institutions to be on top of their patients’ health, preventing illness or stopping it in its tracks by detecting it early thanks to quicker, more accurate laboratory processes.
MedaIno : Our product aims at measuring different vital signs of body using various electronic components in addition to diagnose cardiovascular diseases by analyzing the data being measured.
It consists of measuring and analyzing:
1. Electro-Cardio Graph (ECG)
2. Pulse Oximetry
3. Body Temperature
We aim at designing a Low cost, highly portable and readily available in every household device so that a patient can monitor his body at any time whenever he feels something abnormal with himself without a requirement of visiting the doctor or without even waiting for the family doctor to visit in person.
A TFT LCD would be placed at the top of the modem size box which would display the instruction to user and graph of ECG, SpO2 content (percentage of oxygen content/hemoglobin in blood) and Body Temperature. Also, the readings are recorded with the time stamp.
Our device would also display possible disease to the patient by analyzing the data recorded and recommend the medicines. In case of a serious situation it would trigger an alarm to consult to a doctor immediately. We further expand it to test all major problems of the body.
We want to give a HOSPITAL IN A BOX.
MedHQ : MedHQ is a platform for turning protocols into point-of-care systems (POCS). It acts as a framework for accelerating development and for handling cross-platform implementation. It is backbone technology that makes creating medical treatment software really easy.
Our vision is to democratise this technology and give healthcare professionals the ability to create their own support tools. Health professionals think in terms of discipline specific management algorithms, not in technical requirements. By combining easy authoring with conventions, we want to let health professionals create their own apps. MedHQ hopes to incorporate standardised terminologies like SNOMED CT. In this way, MedHQ apps can plug-and-play with one another and interact with third-party systems through an API. This object-oriented design will let MedHQ apps eventually handle complex management scenarios never previously imagined.
Our first step, is to create an engine that turns management algorithms into smart checklists. Instead of coding, users can capture clinical algorithm with simple rules in an online editor. MedHQ determines the clinical information required, and generates the necessary forms for data entry. It then processes the inputs through the user-defined algorithms to generate a patient-specific management plan. We are currently enhancing rule functionality and exploring effective UX design for our product.
Media Diplomat : PR professionals/experts – After signing up they receive email notifications with requests from reporters in various categories. When they want to respond a link takes them to a unique response page. Currently the service is free but paid members will be able to view and respond faster than normal members. For PR professionals this is important because a quicker response can mean a higher success rate. The paid product is for PR freelancers, PR agencies and university in-house press teams. However many of our members are also general experts who have an interest in placing themselves in the media. PR professionals find our service useful because it helps them get press coverage/show value to their clients. Reporters – On our home page there is a free-to-use ‘Find Expert’ page where reporters make requests. In a fully automated process, when they get a response a HTML email is sent to them with the profile of the source, the response and contact details. The majority of sources use LinkedIn to register meaning the reporter can see the LinkedIn profile also. This makes life a lot easier for them in terms of verifying if the source is suitable.
“MiCuento : Micuento produce interactive children´s personalized book apps.
Our value proposition has the unique features of:
• high quality artistic literacy proposal;
• high degree of interactivity among the reader and the different elements of the story;
• great emotive impact on kids once they become they main characters of the story.
1) The user choose the book app to be personalized according to the kid age (e.g.: “The Dragon of the Stars”).
2) Some kids parameters are asked: name, gender, place where he/she lives, hair color, friends ‘and relatives ‘names, wish, etc.
3) With all this data, Micuento transform texts and illustrations on a personalized and interactive story where the kid become the main character.
4) The user enjoy the story playing with “touch screens” like “voice overs” & “animated overs”. This story can also be played in different modes: “auto play” or “read it myself”. Moreover, the user can make in-app purchases in order to add characters to the story.
5) Once the story is over, users can share its experience on Facebook and Twitter, or YouTube.
The intellectual property of our content belongs to Micuento, which represent an important asset and entry barrier.
Mindhack.me : complete BCI learning course, incorporating audio/visual feedback.We are introducing competitive/collobarative learning/controlling techniques that allow us to increse degree of freedom to any desired number (1 person 2 degree of freedom, 10 people 2power10). And as a result allowing people to get full control of aggregate indexes of attention and meditation (provided by neurosky headset), which will allow you to control almost anything around you.
We already have developed full-cycle brain fitness course including:
– Android OS games: Save Opportunity, Voice of Spirit (was developed in cooperation with aiworker.com);
– Brain Fitness Tollkit: Arduino-EEG based RoboSmart, lightSmart, EEG-hat and EEG-vibrator;
MobileX Labs : MobileX Labs allows anyone to create their own highly customized native mobile apps. Current app builders make the process complex and clunky, and create apps that users open once and then forget. Our platform is simple to use and provides apps that actually add value to the customer’s mobile presence.
We think our service solves ‘today’s’ problem of not being able to create quality apps on a budget. But, we built it with just that in mind. What will tomorrow’s problem be? We think we have the right set of tools to create a really unique set of mobile solutions that will shake the mobile environment for years to come. In 2014, we plan to create the world first mobile game creator (where you can truly build awesome engagement based games in minutes that integrate with our apps). We also built our platform so that it could create a native mobile media based social network. Think of a media based Flipboard meets Facebook with a fully native app experience. We have a variety of synergies and one of the main reasons we have been able to draw interest from the likes of Mark Cuban and other well known investors.
NightlifeGraph : Nightlifegraph is a cloud based platform that allows nightclubs and promoters to manage their events with the following features.
– Ticketing: Nightclubs can allow their customers to easily buy tickets through web and mobile devices.
– Guest list management: Every RSVP goes to our platform so they can track their loyal customers

– Analytics: NG allows nightclubs to access big Data like ratios of attendance, gender, social influence of their customers, demographics as well as average spend and more.
This tool also allows them to know estimated attendance even before the party starts.
Nightlifegraph is fully connected to an iPhone app called Nixter that allows party-goers to interact with the nightclub accessing the guest lists, buying tickets or booking bottle service reservations.
Taking over the B2B and B2C of the nightlife industry allows us to pull big data out of our users in order to offer deep targeting options when it comes to publishing a party or delivering the right advertising through mobile devices.
Paganza : We built an app for that.
Our app (1) reads the barcode included in the invoice, (2) takes the money from a bank account and (3) process the payments using different networks already in the market.
1. The app:
Paganza can read very long barcodes (we built a custom library for that), as the ones in invoices, with middle-range cell phones.
2. The debit:
We get the money connecting to bank accounts (or any other electric funding source as debit cards). Users need to approve one time with their banks first typically through their home banking.
3. The payment:
Coverage is key. We try to avoid direct agreements in order to process through other networks and get more coverage from day #1. The processor might be the bank where the money comes from, but we also generate our own agreements with other networks in order to have full coverage.
PeoplePledge : PeoplePledge offers a medical crowdfunding website. This website product is accessible for Australians to create online fundraising pages to raise funds for loved ones with an illness or disability. We have 2 major target groups, including creators of the fundraising pages and also the supporters who donate to the fundraising pages. For now, only Australians can create fundraising pages but anyone from around the world can donate. In future, we will expand to allow other countries to create fundraising pages. This is new and revolutionary because we are the first medical crowdfunding platform to provide this kind of website in Australia. We create value for customers because the cost to sign up and set up a crowdfunding pledge page is free, and we only charge 5% if and only if page creators actually raise any funds. We capture value from the admin fee we charge as a percentage of the total funds raised. The relevant intellectual property that we have is the website and the business processes and systems of acquiring, converting and serving customers both offline and online. We already have a network of pledge page creators, as well as donors, and some of those donors are repeat donors.
Personaling : Personaling is the evolution of a fashion magazine and an eCommerce service, that brings together, designers, personal shoppers and the most remarkable brands with their target audience: Women Buyers.
It’s a web platform where brands will be able to showcase their collections and inventories while fashion experts as fashion bloggers, editors, photographers, models and artists, use those items to create looks in a professional way and according to the latest trends and the different women profile.
These experts (Personal Shoppers) will also define the corporal profile and style which fits perfect for those composed looks.
On the other hand, a client when register must complete a personal profile that includes her height, contexture, body type, eye and hair color, as well as her favorite styles.
So when a campaign is enabled the system automatically generates a match and every client will see curated and recommended looks with the opportunity of buying it completely or partially from the comfort of her house.
In the past, women admired celebrities and influencers on how they look, having only the opportunity to dream whearing the same, but with Personaling that becomes a reality.
Based on our technology we’re also democratizing Personal Shoppers services
pik’d : pik’d is a tool that automatically detects highlights of action sports videos, empowering our users to easily find, save and share their finest.
After the session, users simply connect pik’d to a computer and upload the data along with the recorded video material. Based on sophisticated algorithms, our software “pik’d out” will immediately detect and mark all sequence highlights. Our customers will have the opportunity to choose and review the suggested highlights and change beginning and end points, if they wish. They can save the chosen sequences as video files and store them to compile a full movie anytime later or share single sequences on social platforms like Instagram, Vine, Youtube, Vimeo or Facebook with a single click. The upcoming app will make this a mobile service and further contribute to our portfolio.
Pneumo Project : We propose the creation of a handy and robust spirometer that operates attached to the user’s smartphone, enabling free respiratory function tests anywhere. Users will blow in a tube to perform the spirometry and assess the condition of their respiratory function in seconds, something currently available only at the physician’s office. It will utilize the device magnetomerer, resulting in battery free device and will be compatible with available mouthpieces and germ filters.
With often spirometries, users:
a. may accurately regulate their medication dosage, thus minimizing drug intake; supported by algorithms in the native mobile app, matching asthma treatment protocols
b. keep detailed statistics to accurately evaluate evolution of their condition and medication schemas effectiveness
c. evaluate how external factors affect lungs temporarily, such as occupational asthma triggers, aerobic training and smoking
The device will also transfer data to attending phycisians online, eliciting immediate advice, at minimal hassle and cost.
Costwise, the device is expected to be in the range of $80, when average adult medication costs $100 for 30 days and current non-smartphone devices cost $350 and above. Economy is achieved by utilizing the processing capability and the HD screen of the smartphone, instead of a poor feature standalone device.
Positive School Climate – Alfombra Mágica : Studies show it is more effective to prevent bullying before it starts. Preventing violence and risk behavior involves a commitment to creating a safe environment where children can thrive, socially and academically. Experts also recommend families to get involved on the task.
Peaceful Coexistence school programs should be entertaining and in sync with children´s age, interests and needs.
Social-emotional learning is a process, that’s why programs should last enough time to let children experience what they are learning.
Our program promotes a respectful, empathic and cooperative relationship between peers, teachers and their families, which works on preventing risk behaviors, violence, depression, stress and more.
Through cooperative games children from 1st to 4th grade develop emotional skills and learn how to achieve common goals.
The program is ready to implement, no planning time or extra materials are needed, includes measurement tests.
The program contents are based on the concepts of a Positive school Climate established by Neva Milicic and Ana María Aron, which are: Identity, Self-esteem, Self-care, Respect, Empathy and Peaceful conflict management.
Contains student´s personal color Activity notebook with stickers for classes and family activities, which needs to be renovated yearly. A teacher´s manual and an online brief training.
Povio : Povio is a communication utility that mimics the natural flow of communication between people. Usually when you call up a friend you ask how he is and then he tells you. Current broadcasting services are like calling your friends and just talking, not listening.
In Povio you just “ping” your friends and they respond in a few seconds using a patent-pending quick response feature. Their response is simply a photo of their point of view (POV).
In a world where more and more moments are captured by smart devices and any stranger can “follow” you, there’s a need for a more casual space to stay in touch with friends.
We are not trying to be a photo sharing app. There are great apps to create and share or send good looking or casual photos. Povio is the fastest way to answer a friend and let them know what you’re doing. Because it’s so easy people actually use it a lot and instead of worrying about content, the focus is on context
Process Street : We provide a simple and effective process documentation SaaS tool. We create value by providing businesses with a simple and intuitive experience to create and execute critical business processes. Using Process Street, businesses can rapidly create process documents, and have employees complete jobs as necessary. Users can track the performance of employees and processes, optimizing along the way. We also allow rapid process iteration reducing the inertia generally associated with documenting business processes.
Rachei : Rachei is an online platform that allows people with excess workspace or coworking spaces to list their space online and seamlessly rent it by the hour, day, month or longer and allows people who need secure, shared workspaces to discover great workspaces in their neighborhoods and reserve, pay and use these spaces frictionlessly.
Once an office, coworking space, hackerspace or warehouse lists their workspace on Rachei, anyone of our members can reserve space and pay via our platform. Both sides can communicate to make sure that they are a good fit for each other.
We are the AirBnB for shared workspaces. We give landlords all the tools they need to make the most of their excess capacity while giving the workers the platform to find the best shared workspaces in their cities.
Additionally, people who book workspaces via rachei have the opportunity to build their networks and connect with other like minded professionals who are using the workspaces as well.
Rah Rah 4 Good : RahRah4Good designs, sources and distributes socially-responsible jewelry in team colors for sports fans around the world. We spotted these beautiful beads during our travels in East and West Africa. The women sell them in villages to tourists, but lack a broader distribution network. We created RahRah4Good as a way to support these women by broadening the appeal of their jewelry and opening up new markets. We will sell this new jewelry to sports fans on college campuses around the US.
Also, we will offer an online platform where customers can order jewelry in their team’s colors. With about 20 core colors, we can cover over 80% of team colors and offer almost unlimited possibilities. The online platform will allow ordering of custom-made jewelry for any team. Also, fans can become sales agents on their own college campuses or among fellow fans of the same team. Or, they can earn commissions or discounts for spreading the word on social media, and distributing on game days. There will also be programs for cheerleading squads, sororities, and other spirited groups who want to raise money while doing something that is socially beneficial. The online platform will make the brand scalable and global.
Rankmi : Rankmi is the first platform to evaluate and develop leadership skills. Managers obtain an overall rating of their skills level and updated feedback on how they run their teams. To use Rankmi, managers create a profile and ask their team members to conduct an evaluation of their competency in different domains. We then analyse this information and provide leaders with a customised dashboard about their skill level and a personalized development plan, allowing them to boost their team’s performance and engagement, and their own careers.
Rankmi provides an independent, reliable and comparable evaluation. Managers can use this to rank and compare themselves to other leaders globally. Our product is innovative as it gives ownership of the information to users, so they can use it to show their skill within and across organisations, post it on their social media, share it with recruiters, etc.
We can provide Companies with an affordable, scalable and easy to use system for internal evaluations, helping them detect and nurture internal talent, enhance the quality of their leaders, and create high-performance teams. We will create a company leadership rating, allowing them to benchmark their human capital, and brand themselves according to the quality of their leaders.
Reportgarden : Our product helps online ad agencies create analysis and performance reports for their clients. We do this by linking with their adwords, analytics, bing ads accounts using APIs and loading data into their reports. Our customers can now slice and segment the data on the fly to show analysis in the form visualizations.
Our product offers deep segmentation and filtration of the data from all the ad services(Adwords, Analytics, Bing ads, etc). We stitch together the data from these services automatically to make it easy for account managers to create complex analysis reports.
For example, we can stitch together information from adwords and analytics to show keyword level bounce rate this week compared with the previous week. If you try to do this using excel, you will need to download sheets from google analytics and adwords. Then you have to combine the two sheets followed by trying to split data by week. Using that split data you prepare visualizations.
Our product is already out in the market and we have several paying customers. A typical report which used to take 2-3 hours to prepare, takes 5 mins to prepare with reportgarden.
RIHT : We match patients in the developed world with doctors and clinics in the developing world — and hold both parties hands during the entire process. We:
-Create a network of doctors and medical clinics in Latin America, who speak English and are prepared to treat clients who don’t speak Spanish or Portuguese
-Provide an English-language search engine and platform through which potential customers in the USA (and later, other developed countries) can find the procedure they need, and its cost.
-We do the sales work: we work with the potential customer, to turn them into a customer
-We organize and manage the customer’s experience during the trip, from helping them book the trip, to finding a hotel, to picking them up at the airport if needed.
In other words, we are the “AirBnB of Medical Tourism” — except, unlike AirBnB, which does nothing once you make the purchase, we help both the doctor and patient alike through every step of the experience, ensuring a smooth operation in all directions.
Scouter : A video chat app for smartphones and tablets that requires less data, gives a more consistent connection, and allows users to multitask at the same time. We constrain the video chat to the top third of the device’s screen, allowing us to compress the video transmission without noticeably losing picture quality. The rest of the screen is a panel that changes based on what the user chooses. For example if a user wants to surf Reddit while chatting, he can select our web browser. If he wants to play a game with his chat buddy, they can both select chess and play together. Our application also supports screen sharing during video chat by allowing users to share web sites, documents, and videos that appear on the bottom screen while chatting — something entirely new to mobile video chat applications.
Sirias Salud : We provide an easy to use, hassle-free web app (Software as a Service or SaaS) for reporting, logging and evaluating AEs, creating an instance to successfully apply countermeasures to avoid future related AEs.
Standardizes the process of reporting, logging and evaluatiang AEs across medical facilities (public and private) Country-wide.
Revamps the current process of AE reporting (underused,undermanaged)
User oriented plataform to increase report engagement.
SkyBerry : SkyBerry is a platform for crowd-sourced flight deals. Our flights are always more than 50% cheaper than the regular fares and often even 90% cheaper! Peru from Europe for 150€ roundtrip after taxes? Yes, we have such flights!
Just tell us where and when you want to go, set the maximum price and relax. When our fare hackers have a flight that matches your preferences you’ll get a push notification via our mobile app, Facebook app or email and you can book it instantly.
How many tickets do we have?
We sell only the best deals, the ones that are more than 50% cheaper that the avarage price on a certain route. There are hundreds of thousands of such tickets available every day.
The thing is that the deals are usually around for only a few hours, so flexibility and being quick are key!
Snapp : We fully take advantage of the mobile device capabilities in order to make the experience of creating a mobile app as easy as building legos.
SokoText : SokoText creates a virtual buyer co-operative using mobile phones to group demand and unlock wholesale prices in the slums. Our platform aggregates individual kiosk owners and places a daily collective order, without them actually having to work together. By sourcing in bulk directly from farmer co-operatives, we reduce the end price of fresh produce by 20% while making a 10% margin to cover our costs and fuel our growth.
SokoText’s innovative system leverages the simplicity and ubiquity of mobile phones with the power of micro-wholesaling. We reduce supply chain inefficiencies and locate our SokoText outlets on the edge of the slums, saving time and money on daily trips for kiosk owners to the faraway markets. Because of the high density in slums, SokoText capitalizes on the multiplier effect from our network of existing kiosk owners. With just one SokoText outlet supplying 150 kiosks, and each kiosk supplying 15 families, we can easily reach over 11,000 end consumers with a single outlet.
Additionally, we provide business education (through our partnership with the Equity Bank Foundation) and nutritional information to kiosk owners using our proprietary SMS-based education platform.
SokoText is an accessible, scalable and profitable 21st century solution to food insecurity.
Splitplay : We market and sell games for game developers who have great games but are too limited to self marketing, so they aren’t able to make money. We host their games at splitplay and market and sell them.
Nobody here in Latin America does what we are doing, and our developers really need this. Specialist Jason Della Rocca says that what our market needs to grow stronger is to give an option to smaller game developers, and not necessarily big companies. Maria das Graças Chagas made a study that shows we have a lot of production that doesn’t have where to be sold, and many people that studies Game Design end up working in another area because of the lack of options.
We are offering great value for both consumers that can’t find this anywhere else and for developers that have trouble distributing their games.
Stat.io : Stat.io has developed a machine learning technology to aggregate and visualize hundreds of thousands of statistical datasets onto a single portal.
In total, Stat.io is aggregating data from 300+ data sources at all levels of government (international, national, regional, local) that use different data formats and different database architectures and mapping it on a single intuitive map. Through this ambitious process, we are reducing the pain of researching and working with open data, allowing for seamless navigation and comparisons across geography and level of government.
Stat.io is relevant as an information provider to large professional users such as government agencies, international organisations and media groups, under a subscription service.
A short demo video of the product can be seen on www.stat.io and a demo of the prototype is available at www.stat.io/demo
Storyberry : Storyberry is a digital publishing and distribution platform for interactive story books for kids. For a typical consumer, Storyberry provides a library of fun, interactive books which allow cultural and language specific customizations along with associated in-app and print activities for kids.
The primary differentiation for the platform is in the level of consumer engagement and contribution. Every user on storyberry platform is also potentially a story teller, an illustrator, a translator and a voiceover artist. Individual contributions made on the platform can be pushed back to a ‘Social library’ for discovery and consumption by other users. This enables interesting scenarios such as allowing a user to edit text and voiceover for a story in say ‘Portugese’ and upload it for general access and consumption by the entire community.
Storyberry provides in-app editing tools and artwork for the novice creators. Storyberry also includes professional design tools and workflows to allow designers to transform their imaginative artwork into interactive stories without need of any programming skills. The primary objective is to reduce the time associated in transition of a design concept to digital content ready for consumption.
Storyberry aspires to be the ‘Youtube’ and ‘Netflix’ of digital interactive stories for kids.
Stylend : The Solution: RENT the perfect dress at 1/10th the retail price from another stylish woman in your city.

Stylend monetizes your wardrobe while providing access to infinite, affordable fashion.
SWITCH 2 : Switch is a global educational program based on artistic techniques that transforms student behaviour and improves school academic performance.
Throughout the year students learn through music, dance and theatre how to channel their energy by enhancing creativity, respect and fellowship. Every week kids have to participate in different challenges that encourage student’s awareness behaviour and bullying.
With the support of an expert Switch-Tutor, students have to come up with creative ideas and initiatives in order to create their own “cool” artistic videos promoting ways of improving their school environment. This makes students to develop a huge sense of belonging and commitment to the message of the videos because they are “the creators”.
To go global, we have designed a scalable model in which Switch-tutors develop local networks in every school. Then each school is connected through an online platform, resulting in the first anti-bullying educational social network. This works in a similar way to the Wayra’s project Poliglotas (first language social network) or the Ted Prize musical project of Jose Antonio Abreu (El sistema).
Switch is a fun interactive way of improving schools environment, where the “cool-ones” are the “good-ones”.
Syme : Syme is a secure social network for groups. Syme aims at helping people and organizations overcome problems of privacy and surveillance when communicating online. It is the only social network that can offer its users complete security in knowing that their communications can only be viewed by the people they choose – not by ad agencies, not by third parties, not even by us. Because of its innovative security architecture, which encrypts data before it leaves the user’s computer (commonly referred to “end-to-end encryption”), Syme is able to guarantee an unparalleled level of privacy to its users. End-to- end encryption has previously been used to increase privacy on the Web, but it has yet to emerge in social media because of technical barriers. By exploiting the latest advances in browser technology, and combining these with cryptographic primitives used by banks and the military, Syme is the first company to bring client-side encryption to something as simple and easy to use as a social network. Encryption remains the best way to protect what you share online, but it’s notoriously hard to use. Syme make it as easy as using Facebook or Gmail — that’s where it’s innovation and novelty lies.
Tagstory : The product is a game that teaches kids HTML, offering knowledge in a noninvasive and yet focused manner. What makes us unique is the combination of tools used to transfer knowledge: visual language of the game, making it usable by 5 year olds; interaction enhancing kinaesthetic learning; interesting and appealing character; carefully selected HTML tags to be collected and implemented practically within the game; and giving our learners sense of accomplishment. Our customers—the parents who wish to teach their kids programming through a game—will receive an email report on their child’s progress and level accomplishments every time a child completes a level and acquires a new skill. To capture the value we would offer the game with few levels for free on relevant application stores (e.g. Apple App Store, Google Play) while charging for the rest of the game and potential customization features.
TAO : TAO is a personalized learning solution, that intelligently understands students learning pattern and creates a personalized courseware in real time for every child.
The ‘Dissection Engine’ helps to identify the learning-gaps present in the student’s understanding of the concept. These learning-gaps are then remediated using high-quality open-source or third-party learning materials, in the form of videos and interactive content. TAO completes the learning cycle by providing teachers with deep insights on the students progress and learning gaps.
Example on math students getting personalized intervention: two students struggling to learn concept ‘compare fraction’: TAO can offer one student visual content (video) on LCM (which is a pre-requisite for compare fraction), while offer textbook excerpt to clear the misconception called ‘Fraction with greater denominator is not greater’ to another student.

The MUSE : The MUSE is a high quality snowboarding accessory that creates a hassle free connection to your music while improving safety and increasing fun on the slopes!
The Wildlands Collective : While the prototype is an online, curated marketplace of properties and a booking/discovery platform for adventurous travelers in the market for remote properties/lodges that fit their ideal outdoor adventure and travel needs, the longer-term vision is the creation of a membership-based, destination club and traveling community akin to Inspirato, ClubMed, or Ruele Chateaux, offering a consistent, hospitality experience for a specific market segment. We plan to do this by first developing Wildlands’ brand identity (wild nature, adventure, community) around a curated portfolio of remote properties/lodges and effectively being an intermediary that connects distributed supply with targeted demand. After the brand identity and experience has been strongly defined, and a nascent initial community exists, we plan to raise capital to enter into long-term leases with targeted remote property owners (similar to Inspirato) and effectively take on the inventory/marketing risk (as well as the higher margins that would come with such activities) and develop back-end support to make the portfolio of properties within Wildlands unique. By doing so, we seek to become the world’s leading remote hospitality brand within the fragmented global eco-lodge and remote hospitality landscape – all while being capital-efficient given that we won’t need to own the underlying asset.
