Suncayr’s mission is to give people the awareness they need to safely enjoy every day they spend outside. They’ve realized that sunscreen alone isn't a complete solution - you have to remember to reapply your sunscreen. The question becomes: how do you know that your sunscreen is still protecting your skin while you are doing many different activities outside.
To solve this problem, Suncayr has developed SPOT, a smart indicator of UV light. Each SPOT comes with images that kids and adults will love, and every SPOT has a special purple design that changes colour to warn you of your UV protection. All you have to do is stick the SPOT on your arm and apply sunscreen on top of the SPOT, and to the rest of your body as you normally would. When the special ink changes from white/clear to purple, it's telling you that your sunscreen is no longer protecting you. If you apply more sunscreen, the purple ink will change colour back to clear/white, letting you know that you're safe. The colour change is fast and reversible, all day long. Since SPOTs will stay on while you swim and sweat, they can provide you with constant awareness of your protection all day long. Safely enjoy every day you spend outside with SPOT by Suncayr!

JLABS @ Toronto
JLABS, part of Johnson & Johnson Innovation, is a network of life science incubators providing emerging companies many of the advantages of being in a big company, without the capital investment. JLABS offers singular bench tops, modular wet lab units and office space on a short-term basis, allowing companies to pay only for the space they need, with an option to quickly expand when they have the resources to do so. Companies residing at JLABS also have access to core research labs hosting specialized capital equipment and shared administrative areas. JLABS is an open innovation model, and the agreement for space does not grant JLABS or Johnson & Johnson Innovation any stake or rights in the companies, nor will the companies have a guaranteed future affiliation with JLABS. The flagship facility is located in San Diego at Janssen's West Coast Research Center, and JLABS has now two established locations in San Francisco - one through a collaboration with the California Institute for Quantitative Biosciences (QB3) and a second standalone facility - one in Boston through a collaboration with Lab Central, one in Houston through a collaboration with TMC, and one in Toronto through a collaboration with MaRS.
