CureMetrix has developed an amazing technology. An algorithm more powerful than anything else on the market. Development of the CureMetrix technology began in 2004 and our algorithm was first deployed at NASA in 2006. Since that initial contract with NASA to help predictably model space weather, we’ve deployed our algorithm into 8 different domains for a variety of organizations. Over the last 8 years we’ve spent over $4M on R&D and used our algorithms to develop models for National Institutes of Health (NIH), Department of Defense (DoD), and a variety of private companies in domains that range from smart grid energy consumption to genomics to cancer treatment. Our team of data scientists have taught, published, and are world-renowned specialists in plasma astrophysics, machine learning, predictive modeling and statistics.


CoreTechs Labs

Dramatically improve the diagnosis, early detection and personalized treatment of key brain disorders by bringing innovative brain image analysis software solutions to clinical practice. Our software solution NeuroQuant automatically segments, classifies and quantifies the volumes of sub-cortical brain structures. It then compares them to normative values by age and gender, and provides reports to neurologists and radiologists. It helps assess a variety of brain disorders such as Alzheimer’s disease, epilepsy, multiple sclerosis, traumatic brain injury and child development disorders. It s FDA 510K cleared and CE Mark approved, and it is protected by an issued broad patent. It is used by hundreds hospitals and clinical institutions around the world.


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.

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.
