Bioengineers without Borders is a student organization with the mission to develop low-cost, sustainable medical technologies while providing students with engineering design experience and professional development. The project focuses on the prosthetic socket which is the most important part of a lower limb prosthesis. Above-knee amputees experience large daily and long-term residual limb volume fluctuations that impact socket fit. Current sockets are rigid and do not allow for adjustments as limb changes cause discomfort and disuse over time. Our goal is to translate adjustable socket technology to low-resource settings.

Do you remember picking up an educational video game only to have your expectations met with mediocrity? We do too. Adie Studios wants to change that. We believe that education and video games can and should have a lot in common. Both are chances to achieve excellence through challenges and rewards. Our product, Project Acolyte is an old school RPG style game that teaches players write code as they explore a detailed universe of legacy, mystery, political intrigue, and rediscovery. Adie Studios is in the process of creating our first software product that is foremost an engaging game with driven story line in a detailed universe. And second, a curiosity-driven educational experience.
I am an MBA student at Foster School of Business UW Seattle that has an undergraduate degree in Mechanical Engineering also from UW Seattle. For the last couple of years, I have worked in business development and business strategy roles for a cannabis marketing agency and now with a pharmaceutical start-up company. My strengths are taking cool ideas and finding ways to commercialize them with sustainable business model that looks at the industry's economics (demand vs. supply), market and consumer purchasing trends, segmentation, computing total addressable market, building a go-to-market plan, writing business plans, presenting business cases for making decisions, and much more. Prior to entering the MBA program, I designed and managed airplane interior development projects, specifically with airplane galleys and bars. These customer touch points led me to conducting market research to understand passenger and flight attendant user experiences on-board an airplane. Through this, I discovered that understanding the demand-side for a product and/or service can help increase consumers' willingness to pay, increasing the overall value of a product/service and the company's brand. Sorry for the long description, but please reach out to me for a phone call, coffee talk, etc. I'm a laid back person, that really wants to help the STEM community grow their ideas into a reality. --Sincerely, Kenneth
I am a creative guy with many cool ideas. Experience: China, Singapore,USA.

SauceBox is a convenient and personalized service connecting hot sauce lovers with high quality samples. Vision: Yes, there is a burgeoning craft hot sauce scene in the United States, but it is expensive and time-consuming for spice lovers to discover their favorite hot sauces from the crowd. So we want to make this process easier and cheaper for consumers. Mission: Your next favorite hot sauce is just waiting to be discovered. Hot sauce as an industry is mimicking the developments in the beer industry in recent years. Small hot sauce companies making craft products from high quality ingredients are becoming more and more successful, and more and more prevalent. Hot sauce has an even lower barrier to entry than brewing beer, which means that consumers have to sort through a lot of low-quality products to find the gems. With SauceBox, we hope to improve that process by making samples of craft hot sauces widely available for a cheap price. SauceBox will offer a subscription box full of samples that are personalized to each user’s tastes. It is a Birchbox for hot sauce. Current offerings are “hot sauce of the month” clubs, and do not take individual users tastes into account. Additionally, they send full-sized bottles which may or may not end up being used. By sending targeted samples, SauceBox can be cheaper, still achieve the same effect for manufacturers (consumers have sampled, and will now buy more of my product), and create an engaging tasting experience for customers.

My name's Carl, and I'm a 2nd year Evening MBA student at Foster with a passion for sustainability, environmental stewardship, and clean energy. During the day, I work at a nonprofit that invests in entrepreneurs that can't get bank financing. And here at Foster, I'm interested in general management, marketing, entrepreneurship, and finance. Craft3 (www.craft3.org) is a nonprofit loan fund with about $200 million under management in Oregon and Washington. We make business loans from $50,000 to $10 million, generally to businesses or projects that aren't bankable today, but will be in 3 to 5 years. Because we're unregulated (unlike a bank), we have a greater deal of lending flexibility and can finance emerging industries (including clean energy), startups, and in situations where there is limited/no collateral, storied credit, or external factors that have negatively impacted the business. For Craft3, I handle external/government affairs, media relations, communications, and marketing. Because we're a mission-aligned nonprofit, we focus our investments on businesses and projects that make the greatest impacts in the community we serve. Prior to Craft3, I worked for seven years for U.S. Senator Maria Cantwell in Washington, DC managing small business, transportation, and federal appropriations policy.

Mission: To avoid climate disaster, we need to switch from gasoline to electric vehicles, and from coal and natural gas to grid-scale wind and solar. Better batteries enable both of these transformations. Our mission is to accelerate battery development. We will do this by serving as the de facto IT department for the battery industry. Problem: Cloud Instr. has grown out of a pain point in my PhD research as a battery scientist - the software used to analyze battery test data consists of clunky Excel macros or obsolete legacy software. In industry, tedious data analysis can take 25-50% of an engineer's time. Product: Our first product is a software platform for battery data. We feed it test results and in 1 click I can generate plots that used to take an entire afternoon. The draw of this tool is its ability to save time for routine analysis, and future developments will add more sophisticated analysis tools. Traction: We have been using an Amazon Catalyst award to finance freelance development of the platform. This summer we onboarded our first industry client in Oregon and we are working to add the next batch in the near future.

A carpooling app that uses location tracking and Facebook to pair people that share similar commutes. The app offers solutions to the three main reasons people don't currently carpool. First, it uses location tracking to record your schedule for you and then match you with other's sharing your commute. That way you don't have to spend countless hours trying to explain and match up your schedule with different people. Second, the app uses Facebook to pair you with only your friends. That way you don't have to deal with the "awkward silence" in the car, and your safe! And third, there's a backup On-Demand ride feature to ensure you aren't stranded if your carpool leaves without you. All these features are put in place to make sure there is no excuse for people to not carpool. Also, think of it as socially saving the environment!

Hi there! I’m a PhD student in marketing at UW Foster School of Business and I have a world-changing business idea. We are developing a revolutionary brand of soap that will help people determine when their hands are *actually* clean. Most people don't wash their hands long enough (15-20 seconds as suggested by the NIH and the Mayo Clinic) and improperly washed hands are a NUMBER ONE reason of infections in hospitals and spread of disease. People die from germs on their hands! This soap would help them not to ;) and would help the rest of us stay healthy. Being a marketer by trade, I already have a wealth of research supporting just how awesome (read - "profit potential") this idea really is. If you join my team, you will be a part of this product from the start - from creating an exciting brand (including choosing a new name!) to being a part in the research and development process, creating a successful pitch, and presenting it to potential investors. I will share more info with potential teammates, including how this soap works, but let me know if you have any questions in the meantime!

As a result, I will bring practical knowledge of best practices and a first-hand understanding of how to implement new sustainability systems.
The problem that we're looking to solve is how can we get more homeowners/business owners to adopt existing technologies that reduce their water footprint and reliance on grid water. We are building an interactive web tool to precisely evaluate the suitability and financial payback of a particularly technology in their building. After a building owner uses the tool, we would like to provide them an internet-connected water meter to measure actual savings and gamify this progress - people can compete against their neighbors, allocate water bill savings towards their personal financial goals, and visualize the actual environmental benefit.
