CleverPet

Dogs are sad and lonely for 10s of billions of hours each year, and those who care about them feel so guilty they’ll spend $40/day and drive their pet to a “dog daycare”. The pet market has grown to nearly $60B/year, and there are now more dogs in the US than people under age 20. We’re a team of PhDs from the world’s top neuroscience program at UC San Diego, and we’re taking advanced behavior training technology previously available only to researchers, and bringing it into the home to provide dogs with the daily mental stimulation they crave. Our first product is a connected and intelligent hardware-software hub that uses a dog’s normal food to adaptively teach them to play games, all day. We’ve completed engineering and we’ll be launching and shipping this fall.

Companion Medical

Companion Medical was founded with the idea that while insulin pumps are the best therapy you can provide for an insulin using diabetic, only 7% of patients choose to use them because of their cost and challenges. By adding Bluetooth to an insulin pen, we have brought the benefits of insulin pump therapy like dose calculators, dose reminders and therapy reporting right to the patient’s smartphone. Our solution is cheaper and easier to use than a pump, but provides the same clinical benefits. We believe our solution amounts to the best of both worlds. Also, by working with data aggregators like Dexcom, Glooko and others our solution enables a complete diabetes therapy review which is impossible today except for those few on insulin pumps. Notable investors include Eli Lilly, Diamyd and several diabetes company CEOs.
