FreeBee

We are in the developmental stages of a digital customer loyalty program, with an initial focus of the fast casual food industry. We believe that the most necessary component of a successful customer loyalty program is ease of use, thus we plan to implement a “check-in” method that simply requires the input of a phone number while making a purchase. Our revenue model is a monthly subscription fee by the businesses in which our service operates.

Gray Matter

Grey Matter

Gray Matter Technologies is developing the G-FORCE, a patent-pending, impact-sensing sports mouthguard that helps trainers, coaches, and parents highlight athletes at risk of concussion. Acceleration data can be collected and used to identify athletes who sustain impacts outside the normal range of their peers, or at levels at which they have reported previous injury. These players can then be earmarked for immediate attention from a medical professional.

Hapback

Major events like the Super Bowl have no trouble finding advertising sponsors. However, finding a sponsor for a small or midsize event is much more difficult. Smaller events must either hire an expensive sponsorship company, or spend hours cold calling prospective sponsors. Hapback solves this problem.

Sensus

The principle goal of SENSUS is to promote science-based education in the underfunded institutions and areas of the globe. We believe that education needs to be focused on practical experience and by supplying schools with affordable data loggers we will make it happen. The recent computer revolution decreased electronic prices substantially but this change hasn’t affected scientific sensors. We want to take this advantage and by creating a modular product optimize the production costs. Our unique selling proposition is affordable product with interface finally oriented on the target users — students. The long time revenue stream comes from schools software subscription and access to full system for teaching experiments. The time is right to fill this market gap, especially considering recent education focus on STEM.

Who’s Hungry solves this problem through an app that let’s you organize a group of friends to get something to eat.
