is the first smart otoscope that uses AI to diagnose ear infections at home.
Founder Jane Zhang saw the need for this device when her young son suffered from recurring ear infections, and one severe episode that took 4 lines of antibiotics and 6 weeks to resolve. After talking to many more parents, we discovered that Jane was not alone, and parents were eager to track symptoms at home. MiVUE provides transparency into ENT symptoms and will one day be able to diagnose ear infections at home. MiVUE was awarded the $25,000 Muse Innovation Fellowship for technology and placed 3rd in the Knapp Venture Competition.
Our mission is to empower patients, especially parents of sick children, through sensing and understanding their child's health. MiVUE leverages advanced deep learning and biosensors to achieve this diagnosis.
is a "social impact" startup with a burning determination to develop & commercialize mobile apps for developmental disabilities worldwide.
The inspiration behind Chronaly was the founders' background (healthcare, technology, startups) plus personal experiences -- where one of the founders has a brother with autism.
Our company plans to make a portfolio of mobile apps that provide individuals with developmental disabilities (such as autism) and their Care Community (doctors, therapists, parents, teachers, caregivers, & others who work with them) better therapy, treatments, & health outcomes. At the core of every app we make resides big/complex data, machine learning, artificial intelligence, actionable intelligence. We envision, among other things, establishing a connected app platform that would provide us with more opportunities to make money by "opening" our insights model, Chrona, to other developers & parties to assist all parts of an autistic individual's life (e.g., speech or occupational therapy progress). Our near-term focus is autism within the U.S. with a projected market size of $1.3 billion.

provides teeth-grinders with custom night guards for 90% lower prices than dentists through its direct to consumer subscription service.
The idea for our business started years ago when Pablo learned he had been grinding his teeth at night and that he would need to wear a night guard. Through lots of conversations with other teeth grinders, we found out that peoples' main issues with night guards are the cost, which often isn't covered by insurance, and keeping it clean. As a first step BruxA launched ClearClub, a night guard subscription service (www.joinclearclub.com), aiming to improve oral health care and to make teeth protection more accessible, affordable, and hygienic for everyone.
BruxA is already generating revenue, shipping to customers all across the US and focused on fast growth to become the dominant player that will serve the $5Bn market represented by the 13% adults that grind their teeth during the night. Learn more here: www.joinclearclub.com
