This group as a whole was our most advanced yet, not only due to their sophisticated applications of the latest technologies and mastery of online customer acquisition techniques. They also demonstrated a significant degree of understanding of each of their industries. As a result, they easily learned and were able to assimilate and apply the various skills that we speed through in the program. We were excited by the companies that are launching this year, including Kangowrite, a digital platform that helps students and professionals write better research papers; CivicPro, an online service that uses AI to make it easy for lawyers to filter and find information about local legislation; also launching in 2018 are NestNotes, Mandatum, Oweletpass, DocLive, and SunVessel, the latter which is building a charging station network in Miami for battery-powered scooters. Other companies in the program will go live after clinical testing including ViduAI, and Visual Forensics. One of our entrepreneurs, an FIU professor and founder of EcoAtlas, was honored by Fast Company Magazine as one of the 2018 World Changing Ideas finalists for his EcoAtlas inititative. Finally, two companies that are saving lives are Safe Emissions Systems, which makes bolt-on mufflers that eliminate poisonous carbon monoxide emissions from gas-powered generators; and SmartsAid,a platform that will connect people in need with the services available to help.
