Drively: A simple snapshot of your driving.

drively.png

US drivers spend about 1 hour daily on the road, but there is very little actionable information. Fleet management systems are already using statistical information to improve vehicle usability, maintenance and driver safety. Consumers should have easy and affordable access to this information as well.

Our application is based on a cheep OBD device that could be purchased today for ~$10. The device plugs into any car made since 1996. This device together with a cell phone becomes a powerful cloud enabled analytics tool. Our android application is available through Google Play store with >1000 downloads and >50000 total miles driven by users.

Bibs: bibs is a platform for modernizing running events.

logoWireBlack.png

Bibs is creating a platform that unites runners and event directors. We have a registration system that allows runners to sign up for events and handles the transaction and ties directly into event management software. We also have an easy to use hardware platform that times runners at the day of the event and a fraction of the price event directors are used to paying. This plugs directly into the app, which allows runners to view and share their results in addition to discovering new events. Bibs received an angel investment from two respected event directors and timers in the running industry at the beginning of the year.

Presented by Galen, CTO of Bibs.

Galen has an educational background in Computational Physics and experience in numerical computing/algorithm design. He worked at multiple gambling software companies and a wearables company building a fitness tracker, then moved to help founding bibs.

 

GEO: A mobile app that allows you to share information as you walk by people.

We are a mobile app that will allow people to walk by one another and share information. After people receive information, they can than share it with others as they walk by one another. Consider us like a Twitter with feet. We plan to change the information age forever, and our unique server design that monitors people’s location so they can constantly share information while moving will revamp digital content sharing forever. Imagine a college kid throwing a party? He can share his thought out and others can share it, and therefore his thought could go viral as people move around.

Presented by Alden Morri

My name is Alden Morris, I am an inventor and entrepreneur. We are building a mobile app that allows users to walk past one another and share ideas, events, photos, music, and more. When one user receives a thought, another user can share their thought as they walk around.
