rcmasse [11:21 PM] Battery technology will enable greater penetration of renewable energy sources, electric vehicles, and other energy efficiency solutions. However, battery testing infrastructure used for research and product development is both expensive and compromised by 15-year-old software packages. The limited functionality of these data processing tools wastes time. As a consequence, manufacturers cannot catch defects in time. For Samsung and its Galaxy Note 7, this failure has been a $17 billion liability. For our go-to-market strategy, Cloud Instruments is building a platform for battery testing and analytics. In the future, this analytics platform will be extended to address additional Internet of Things devices. Our platform automates data handling, storage, and visualization - tasks that take between 25 and 50% of a battery engineer's time. We provide real-time access to battery production data and send alerts when quality standards are not met. Our analysis tools provide deeper understanding beyond surface-level performance statistics and focus on predictive analytics with machine learning.

While in the Foster School of Business Evening MBA Program, I work for the University of Washington’s Department of Global Health as a Senior Program Manager. I focus primarily on health systems strengthening interventions in Haiti including clinical mentoring, health information systems for improved patient care and health workforce development. Since I served in the Peace Corps in West Africa, I have been compelled to make health systems work better: to serve more people, more efficiently; to provide a better quality service; and, to ultimately improve health outcomes in low resource settings. I have worked at different levels of implementation: from directly interacting in the local language with the communities served to working for the donor and informing strategic funding decisions. These experiences have enriched my approaches to health systems management and enabled me to understand the impact of programs from multiple perspectives. I have seen health systems fail patients unnecessarily due to inefficient services, poor management of staff and resources, and lack of protocol. I am driven to preventing needless suffering and death through innovated health delivery models, better planning and management, and patient advocacy.

SafeFlame aims to tackle a glut of high profile issues effecting people in developing nations. First among these is the potent issue of indoor pollutants. Globally, more than 3 billion people cook using biomass (wood, animal dung, crop waste, or charcoal). The indoor pollution created by burning these fuels results in over 4.3 million deaths annually with deaths particularly high among women and young children, who spend the most time within the home. Additionally, many of these solid fuels are gathered in an unsustainable manner by local communities causing severe deforestation. SafeFlame’s service – which we call an untethered utility – is provided through biodigesters which SafeFlame technicians install directly into customers’ households. These digesters, which are serviced regularly by the team, break down organic content to produce biogas which customers can use to prepare meals on a standard gas cookstove. “Think of it like your water heater at home”, says CEO and current Foster MBA student Kevin Cussen, “Someone installs it somewhere in your house and as long as you pay your electricity bill you reap the benefits of hot water. Once we install a digester, all our customers need to do is pay their bill and they have access to clean burning gas at the turn of a knob.” Those interested in learning more or getting involved are encouraged to check out SafeFlame’s Facebook page or reach out directly to Kevin Cussen at kcussen@safeflamellc.com!

The DASO Soccer Smart Wall is a rebounder with lights that tell you where to kick and sensors that analyze performance. We currently determine speed, accuracy, and rebound control time and we are looking to integrate trajectory and the user's distance from the Smart Wall when striking the ball. This information is calculated into a score that is displayed for the user next to their training session countdown timer. We will use this information to create detailed training histories of player development. With enough players we can put their scores online to create an online hub of training, scouting, and competition. We have two prototypes we are demoing for relevant players in the northwest soccer community - All-American Nate Boatright has said "It kicks a**! I'd recommend it." Most notably we have a demo with the President & CEO of Starfire Sports, the home of the Seattle Sounders and the epicenter of soccer in the northwest. We have patent pending status and our current survey data shows players giving the unit a 4.9/5 stars. For more information go to www.soccersmartwall.com

We aim to keep high schoolers focused on their collegiate dreams. Users first select a dream college either through a 50th percentile/100th percentile match of their GPA/standardized test scores, and then it gives notifications when they are getting off track! It also alerts what grade must be attained on the next quiz, test, or even homework assignment to stay above a certain percentile for their dream college. This would greatly improve the focus rate since they have something to strive towards.

As the world progresses towards a primarily digital age, the ability to digitize material is more and more in demand. To create an accessible way to digitize documents, our team has developed a printer/scanner. When the PrintaScan is attached to the apple case, it has an elegant look that would complement any mac laptop. The PrintaScan looks much better than the average large box-like printers that one would see in a house, because we allow the user to create their own "skin" [all external sides of the device]. A competitive advantage is that the device is less than .65-inches thick. No other device in the entire industry can print or scan and be as small as ours. Having a portable printer and scanner would solve any problems someone may encounter while traveling, or if a college student needs space in their dorm. Lastly, we can print and scan notes and convert them automatically to a word document. We need the funding to develop this software and build the product’s hardware.

Greetings, my name is Kathryn Campos. I was born weighing 1 pound 3 ounces at U of WA Medical Center. I lost my twin brother at birth, received open heart surgery at 3 weeks old with no anesthia, was in Neonatal ICU care for 5 months and was on steroids for over a year. I am just one of millions of babies born to soon. I'm the founder of The Neonatal Womb Foundation. We are interested in gaining team-members with experience in business, nonprofit/social enterprise, marketing, legal, finance, software application development, global/public health, pre-med/medicine, nursing, and community healthcare worker training development/business development. 15 million babies are born early each year, access to care-providers is critical to the prevention and reduction of preterm births and related fatalities. In the USA 1 in 10 infants are born early, and we have an international ranking of a C-grade level. This is an international crisis that demands recognition, acknowledgement and solution building Our mission is to create a Community Healthcare Worker Certified Training Program for premature infants, we seek to develop a pilot project of the program and have it accessible via APP for potential community healthcare workers to gain access to educational training, resources, and support materials. This program is meant to be utilize both domestically and internationally and will contain locally based information pertinent for healthcare workers and what is accessible to them.

Pre-clinical drug screening capabilities are failing to meet the demands of the modern pharmaceutical industry, resulting in extraordinary costs and a bottleneck for innovation. This is particularly true for very promising new drug targets that involve the highly specific inhibition of protein-protein interactions (PPIs) which are the cause of many difficult to treat diseases. The average cost of pre-clinical screening for each new FDA approved drug in 2016 was over $1 billion and increasing an 8.5% per year. Pre-clinical screening consists of individually testing thousands or millions of candidate drug compounds for targeting the correct protein without also targeting unrelated proteins. Unfortunately, current methods based on highly automated robots are highly time consuming, expensive and often not accurate leading to expensive failure of drugs during clinical testing or even after drugs are on the market. At A-Alpha, we have developed Pharma-seq: the first truly high-throughput platform for screening drugs that inhibit PPIs. We have taken a synthetic biology approach and developed a screening platform based on yeast mating that can characterize whole protein interaction networks in just a single tube, which allows the screening to be carried out in a massively parallel manner. This disruptive technology will vastly reduce the complexity, cost, and time required for developing PPI inhibiting drugs and will open the door to the development of new classes of drugs.

Remember eating Otter-pops when you were a kid? What if there were otter pops for adults? Well, there are! North Polez are alcoholic Otter-pops for adults. You might not think alcohol can freeze but believe it or not there are several ways to "freeze" alcohol. In fact, 3 North Polez (57ml tubes) would contain as much as 1 shot of 100 proof liquor. Google search "Alcoholic Ice Cream" and you'll find several companies selling pints of alcoholic ice cream. However, most of these products either contain very low concentrations of alcohol or are expensive. Otter-pops, on the other hand, are cheap and come in bulk boxes. Staying true to this business model, North Polez would come in bulk boxes, be cheap, and targeted towards young adults. Step aside Jell-O shots, North Polez are here.
