Life Whisperer

Life Whisperer uses artificial intelligence to better select embryos in IVF, and ultimately improve outcomes for couples wanting to have children. Fertility globally is declining, and success rates for IVF are very low (~20%), which has an emotional and costly impact on couples. Current approaches for selecting embryos are either risky, invasive, costly, or manual and subjective. Life Whisperer’s solution will be delivered via a cloud-based system, and does not require any costly hardware or process change.

e-kite

E-Kite develops kite power systems to generate electricity at >50% lower costs than wind turbines. Their systems consist of a wing tethered to a ground station. While flying away the wing is pulling the tether, causing a pulley to turn. This pulley then drives a generator.

Kite power systems are mobile, so they can be used at temporary or remote sites. Their systems can be deployed offshore in deep waters at very low costs, because they can float on pontoons.

MineSpider

Minespider uses blockchain tokens to track conflict free minerals. Metals that come from conflict zones are difficult to uniquely identify because shipments can be mixed, so our approach is to create blockchain tokens according to production volumes of responsibly sourced material.

These tokens are passed up the supply chain to purchasers of metal, so that manufacturers can trace their money to responsible sources
