We create indoor maps based around accessibility and using that data we are creating the first ever accessibility API
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.

I am a passionate and enthusiastic entrepreneur. My aim is to get involved and make an impact. I travel regularly and have been to 10+ countries for exposure and a diversity of experience that I can bring to the team. I am a strong believer in learning through pattern recognition and read as many stories of successes and failures to learn from others' lives. I consider myself strong in pattern recognition and foreseeing potential outcomes. I am a team player and advocate for team satisfaction, and I can step into leadership positions if we get stuck.

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.

Search engine for Ayurveda type of products like herbs, plants and others with artificial intelligence on common deceases. User can use search engine with knowledge graph for specific plant or tree and how it can be used in medicine. In the same type user can search for illness and result will show complementary or alternative medicine for it. Few examples are fever, cough, consumption, diarrhea, dropsy, abscesses, seizures, leprosy, angina, diabetes, hypertension, stones etc. Although laboratory experiments suggest it is possible that some substances in Ayurveda might be developed into effective treatments, there is no evidence that any are effective. One of the instances for Ayurveda treatment can be Sattvic diet - regimen that places emphasis on seasonal foods, fruits, dairy products, nuts, seeds, oils, ripe vegetables, legumes, whole grains, and non-meat based protein.
I am an individual, Not a student, I am looking for team members with app development skills. I have 2 MBA students on my student team. I work with people with dementia and have discovered that many of their needs could be met with a wearable device that could keep track of them and remind them of things they have forgotten. I would like to develop this in conjunction with a team of students from the UW. I have collaborated with Dr. Rhoads of the UW Medicine Memory and Brain Wellness Center and we think this device could be revolutionary in the treatment of Alzheimer's. I think this can win the health innovation challenge. I have a work history of Marketing, Customer Relations, Accounting and ran a business flipping houses. I have never developed a product, that is where I need help. But I could help and inspire a team to make a much needed innovation for this challenged population and their overworked caregivers.

I have a Mechanical Engineering degree from UW (Class 2007) and have experience designing and program managing Boeing 767, 777, and 787 cabin interiors, with my most recent experience working directly with airline design teams and cabin crew to improve usability and increase functionality of bars and galleys. I am currently working as a business developer for a start-up marketing agency with emphasis on creating targeted sales strategy using customer relationship management (CRM). I have owned two small businesses related to music instruction, and project consulting, which was for a customer survey mobile app company. I'd like to learn more about developing business plans and working with other technical and business-mindset entrepreneurs who are interested bringing to market a product or service that brings value to people and communities (returning in growing market share and top line revenue growth).
I'm building a prototype and applying to Amazon Catalyst for funding to build the product . And , I look forward forming a team to work on business side of the project, as well as, additional engineering team members. The project is on map-based social mediaapp which can track and display events in real time. The event icon appearing on the map can inform users information about general description, current number of people , live stream videos , posts about the event. Users will have a better decision if they want to join or not. The definition of events here includes festivals, demonstrations, marching, football games, start-up kiosks, dangerous events ( terrorism, bank robbery, disasters, etc.), SOS, traffic jam .etc. A well-developed map-based social media has a huge potential for residents to use their own urban infrastructure , and for government to administrate cities effectively. Business model is based on advertisements which we can explore and exploit during the app development.

IssueCounsel is an existing website I founded in the Fall of 2016: www.issuecounsel.com. Please have a look. It is focused on aggregating the world's public debates and counseling clients through their most important issues with innovative Issue Reports, competitive intelligence, decision-support tools, and communications and consulting services. It is a sequel to Debatepedia.org, a website I founded in 2006 and worked on full-time for five years. IssueCounsel aims to improve on Debatepedia, apply argument-visualization and competitive intelligence as a for-profit venture, and leverage technologies such as machine learning and natural language processing to achieve these goals. One of its missions is to solve a problem in the public debate: arguments and quotes on any given issue are always scattered across dozens or sometimes hundreds of sources. This makes it impossible for citizens and leaders to full deliberate or frame their own decision-making. IssueCounsel solves this by centralizing and framing ALL the main arguments and quotes in any topic into comprehensive Issue Reports. See for example the Issue Report on the Sound Transit Three debate here in Seattle: https://issuecounsel.com/issue-report/seattle-sound-transit-3-referendum/ These have value to citizens who want to deliberate, advocate, and vote. They also have value to companies who want to gather competitive intelligence on the arguments their competitors are making. For other target segments, see website.

Healthy Roots is a plant-based meal service which seeks to improve the quality of life of individuals across all communities. The health of the individual and the environment is paramount to the mission of the company. The company wishes to address the harmful effects of foods deserts, pharmaceutical dependents, and an excessive American diet. Healthy Roots wishes to provide an alternative diet which is both affordable and accessible. By providing a plant-based alternative the general well-being of people can be improved. Also, dependance on drugs and medical interventions will be decreased. Another long-term goal of the company is to address food deserts by providing the service to disadvantaged communities at a discount cost. Additionally, environmental concerns are attended to, as switching people to a plant-based diet would have a significant impact on decreasing the human footprint on the planet.
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.
