We’re building a P2P marketplace for adventure tours. The space is super-crowded and plenty of companies have already failed, but we’ve done something that, to my knowledge, no one else has - turn a profit with AdWords. One of the key reasons is our use of video. By allowing the customer to “experience” the tour ahead of time, it creates a stronger emotional connection than a static listing can. Combining that with highly-targeted ads, we end up with conversion rates in the 5-6% range. This is extremely high for the industry, which allows us to cost effectively bid for clicks. The interesting part is we only discovered the effects of video recently and should still be able to improve the efficiency of our listings & keywords as we evolve. We’ll also benefit from network effects - instead of finding customers specifically for the tours we have like we do now (expensive), we can acquire an ordinary traveller and show them relevant tours we already have (much cheaper).

CycleKey provides smart, secure bicycle storage solutions. We work in partnership with local service providers to create a network of smart bicycle lockers integrated with an online booking platform. Theft is a major problem facing cyclists. Traditional bike locks are insecure and present cumbersome barriers to use. CycleKey differs from other bike locker systems by removing archaic pen-and-paper reservations and allowing keyless entry. Electronic locks and an online booking platform allow users to ditch the keys and allows service providers to eliminate costs. The costs of traditional bike lockers, including key management and key replacement, have been a major barrier to the adoption of these systems. CycleKey facilitates on-demand booking by many users over the internet or mobile device. Usage metrics can be collected to maximize available storage space and allocate new lockers to popular locations.

For the first time in history, high-resolution geospatial data is becoming available at affordable rates. However, this enormous amount of accessible raw data must first be transformed into actionable information. The core of this interpretation is the identification and labeling of objects within each image. This is a prerequisite to any sort of quantification or analysis of geospatial data, and is currently very labor intensive – requiring human photo interpreters. Ecopia Tech's platform takes the growing amount of data captured by satellites, drones, and other sensors, and interprets it as a human would, identifying objects within each image. Ecopia employs GPU-based algorithms to interpret and index this information, enabling insight not previously possible via manual interpretation (such as: quantifying global wheat supply, or counting the number of new houses in certain countries each year).
