BLITAB

BLITAB® is the first ever Braille tablet with an innovative actuating technology to create tactile text and graphics. The “iPad” for the blind. Their patented invention is the smart tactile display technology that can be multiplied into various industries. BLITAB® allows for the first time blind users to learn, work and play with one mobile device; have digital access to information in real time. BLITAB® converts any document into Braille text; little dots "tixels" raise immediately from the surface and then fall down again. Worldwide there are more than 285 million blind and visually impaired people (WHO, 2012).Only 1% of all published books are available in Braille, the fundamental tool for education and literacy of blind people. BLITAB® brings tremendous positive change at minimal end-user cost.

Mush

Mush is the number one app for new parents in the UK (App Store Jan-Sep '17). Becoming a mum is brilliant, but it can also be lonely. Mush exists to fast-track women into their new lives as mums by finding mums nearby with kids the same age, giving them a list of local recommended places near them, and providing them access to a local messaging board with other mums. It is Facebook for mums. It is taking mum communities into the 21st Century. It is the platform for millennial mums.

SidekickHealth

SidekickHealth delivers an engaging health-behavior change platform to predict, prevent and manage lifestyle-related diseases. Our B2B SaaS model helps providers and employers achieve better health outcomes, experience and financial performance at scale. We combine behavioral economics, A.I. and gamification to motivate lifestyle change for those most in need (e.g., the 50% of adults with low health literacy, at-risk populations). Our platform empowers users to manage their health (diet, exercise, stress) and lets administrators review data and communicate remotely with users on their journey to better health. When adding SidekickHealth to in-person programs, customers have seen a three-fold increase in participants achieving their weight-loss goals, as well as higher program adherence.

Wefarm

Small-scale farmers live in rural areas without access to the internet - isolated from information and resources they need to prosper. They produce 70% of the world’s food so this matters to all of us. Which is why we have created Wefarm - the world’s largest farmer-to-farmer information sharing network. Our mission is simple - connect every farmer - as we believe no one else knows more about farming. Utilizing the latest AI technology, Wefarm works by SMS and online. Our service enables farmers to share and access vital information on anything from how to battle a disease to how to increase their income. All without leaving their farm or spending any money. Our growth is unprecedented - we have already registered over 320,000 farmers who use Wefarm twice as much as people use Twitter!

  • The Daily Experiment: online community to make happiness available through self-improvement and social good; proceeds currently going to Hurricane Irma victims (UK)
  • Augus: online tool that uses artificial intelligence (AI) to help people design their own paths to happiness (Mexico)
  • Eldo: platform that builds intergenerational relationships by connecting older mentors with younger minds (USA)
