FasterCapital Acceleration Program 4th round 2016

  1. 1. FasterCapital - Portfolio 2 The 4th round of funding started on 15th of Jul, 2016 and ended on 16th of Aug, 2016. We had 17 startups in this round.

  4. 4. FasterCapital - Portfolio 5 Grocery shopping is a hassle - The shopping takes few hours per week and remember just last time you went to a supermarket how long it took you find parking, to gather all goods, then stand in the cash desk line. For busy people it’s actually a nightmare as with their 9-18 routine they have to find time for shopping few times per week. And on top of this there is the problem of impulsive shopping as 60%+ people report they usually buy 25-30% more when they go to shopping. On top of all this people are facing difficulties on making the list of products they need or might need because they do not track their consumption of grocery and do not know whether they need to buy e.g. sugar or milk today or not. Challenge Personalized grocery shoping do-it-for-me solution based on AI designed to help people not only deliver groceries to their doorstep but help them forget about the purchasing process. Almost 80% of grocery consumption of household is pretty predictable for households, that’s why Cartly is aiming not to be just a delivery business, but help people forget about their grocery shopping through its smart Artificial Intelligence algorythms. Idea
  5. 5. FasterCapital - Portfolio 6 Well we met 1.5years ago during an incubation program. All of us were doing different things. Then we decided to team up as the grocery shopping was a hassle for all of us as well and not only buying goods from stores but also knowing what we should buy, or maybe the sugar at our home will be finished in 2 days so we need to take care of etc. We decided to build and ship a small landing page to see what people think and in a week we saw that almost 20 out of 180 visits have clicked on "Order" button which actually was even non-functional. Story An interactive and easy to use mobile app which disrupts the grocery shopping experience. So the customer just picks goods, delivery time and we deliver the goods to their doorstep. To make the UX and the ordering process easier for this stage in new version we have new features like "favorites", recent baskets" so as they could order more easily. Besides that our smart AI learns through time their consumption behavior and just sends them the "built basket" with the necessary products they will be going to buy in the next 1-2 days (based on our data analysis) and the customer just needs to approve or just do some small modifications.

Kriti Khanna Marketing Head final year, b.tech- cse, amity university, best in crises, great writer and a manager. Aryaman Gupta Content Head
  11. 11. FasterCapital - Portfolio 12 In todays day every artist has to run after the labels to get them publish, they have to surrender their rights, settle for low royalty and if the artist is not famous then the artist need to pay a high amount as well. Deliver My Tune has eliminated all of these things, we give the same service to all the artist, give 100% rights and controls, 90% royalty and the fee is as low as $20. We also provide ISRC and UPC codes which are the most essential codes required for Digital Music Distribution. In India Deliver My Tune is the only company which has got the authority to provide ISRC code to individual artist after Indian Music Industry and we do not take more than 1 min to allot it. Challenge Deliver My Tune is India's first aggregator based website for digital music distribution. So, we at Deliver My Tune help the artist to upload their original compositions on 10+ stores such as Gaana, iTunes,Google Play, Saavn, Wynk Music (Nigeria) etc and also give them 100% rights and control to their composition, not only this we provide 90% of the royalty to artist. The best part is all these things without a contract, the artist is free to come and free to go at any part of the time. Our aim is to create a music industry which is equal to all, a place where artists are judged by their talent, not by their bank balance. Idea
  12. 12. FasterCapital - Portfolio 13 This company is not a result of some money minded people who came together and decided to start a company in order to get a hell lot of money from the artists. This company is a result of PERSONAL EXPERIENCES. This started when I used to go for my guitar lessons, where I and my guitar teacher recorded some songs and compressed them into an album. It was very special for both of us as it was our FIRST album and we wanted to release it. Story The impact is going to be great, we have never found a person who said that this idea is not required, it is the need of the hour and will solve all the problems of the artist. Deliver My Tune will end the monopoly of the labels and introduce a lot more service to the Digital Music World. Solution

  15. 15. FasterCapital - Portfolio 16 We, at Dorie, are addressing the major problem of measuring & increasing productivity through performance monitoring & improving, decision driving, digital big data in key industrial sectors which contribute largely to the economy of any nation. Challenge Dorie designs, builds & manufactures Intelligent Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (IUAVs) focused on providing data acquisition, data processing & big data analytics services through 3D Photogrammetry, multi-spectral & GIS based imaging techniques to industries in sectors of large scale infrastructure, mining & minerals, agriculture and oil & gas wherein data acquisition & transfer platform is completely automated and cloud connected enabling quicker decision making using better data. Idea
  16. 16. FasterCapital - Portfolio 17 Drones & Data Acquisition - an idea which came out of need. Founder of Dorie Technologies, Bhaskar R, is a passionate engineer who loves to productize any idea. One of his long thought dreams was to build an Unmanned Aerial Vehicle. His research background gave him the necessary initial knowledge on establishing the method of designing, building & testing a quad-copter, otherwise called as drone. He recruited four like minded freshly graduated engineers who also shared the same passion as him. He was completely focused on building a complete product with maximum functionalities and he strongly believes that one's intelligence is a collective trait and that team work will lead to quicker & better completion of work. Story Infrastructure: Contour Mapping, land Survey diagram, site planning & construction activities monitoring for highway, dams & large scale commercial or housing projects. Solution: 1. Quicker survey of land - 50 acres land (or) 2km highway can be surveyed & CAD drafting diagram along with report can be given in less than 8 hours at a GSD of 5cm/pixel. 2. Larger Point Cloud and better 3D models represent the exact model of survey region in an editable format enabling better flexibility in site planning & construction planning. Solution
  17. 17. FasterCapital - Portfolio 18 Ethos - The Future of Technology
  18. 18. FasterCapital - Portfolio 19 over 8 years in the e-waste industry; experienced ewaste executive with proven sales track record, e-waste recycling operations management… Derek Ramsell Founder/CEO & Business Architect John Neri Banking Advisor Experienced account manager with several banking firms and non-for-profit board member. VP of Small Business Banking - Bank of America (Syracuse).
  19. 19. FasterCapital - Portfolio 20 There is no local plant where circuit board scrap can be broken down and have all of the metal types separated out and refined and at low cost and done in a clean way. Furthermore anywhere even close is too high of cost to just get out some of the metals and they burn the plastic off. Even industrial scale places overseas, while they are low cost, they are a bit inefficient in the metals separation and their practices are not as clean. Plus, other smelters/refineries only pay after processing, which can be up to 6 months! Challenge Ethos will process circuit board scrap to separate, recover and refine the metals and plastic, using high efficiency "green" technology, producing high purity metal bars, which are sold to metal buyers. Idea
  20. 20. FasterCapital - Portfolio 21 During college, Derek took up a job at an e-waste recycling warehouse moving up from disassembly to front end sales in a mostly condemned old WW2 tank ball bearing warehouse, crushing cockroaches that would come out of the draws and stored printers with a power supply assembly while making sales calls. (got most of them in a few months). While revamping the sales department at the e-waste recycling company, there was now large volumes of circuit board scrap from the disassembly operations to sell. Derek realized we weren't getting anywhere close to the intrinsinc value and found out of how underserved the market was. Story Ethos new plant will provide a local/regional place where suppliers can send their circuit board scrap and receive the highest value in the world, in addition to upfront payment, while also having full confidence in the operation being clean and industry certified. The impact will be that a substantial portion of the 80% of circuit board scrap ($5BB+) being shipped overseas and much of what is done in the US will be sent to our plant at capacity, where we will produce multiple pounds and tons of Au, Ag, Pl, Pd, Rh, Cu, Ni, Al, Zn, Pb & FR4; The carbon offset from our recycling is over 10x / pound, in addition to water saved from pollution. We also aim to use solar and wind to power all of our operations. Solution

A Group of friends for last 18-Years! This group first came-up with a plan to make Analytic Engine. The data collection was planned to be done from neighbor hood mom & pop shops of all types/categories. And then the data to get analyzed to find out which exact product/sku is sold where & how much. Story Company’s Hi-Tech Farming as a Service model allows growers to make use of the Android App, IoT Devices on the Farm field to stay connected, informed & Automate Farm field equipments and Crop Advisory services for field work at finger tips. Using RobotiX (Farm-field level IoT Device) growers can collect Farm land’s water level, weather, soil & crop progress data continuously without any human intervention.

  30. 30. FasterCapital - Portfolio 31 We seek to fill the gap that exists in Sub Saharan Africa between people ignored by financial institutions via financial inclusion products which are not only affordable and within reach but also empowers them by cutting the bureaucratic processes of acquiring loans and making the loans available to unfinanced entrepreneurs Challenge We intend to offer easily accessible and cheaper loans and financial advisory to the unbanked ,the ignored eg. security guards and the young entrepreneurs. We will cut the bureaucratic process that are generally characterized by loaning institutions. Our algorithms will use their network , personal data and more so their savings to computer their credit score. Idea
  31. 31. FasterCapital - Portfolio 32 Passionate about social entrepreneurship, our team met through social networking and used their diverse knowledge to come up with an idea that would positively impact the most ignored part of our society. With our friends always asking for gentleman's loans to peruse their needs either personal or enterprenual, we did see a gap and need that could be filled by us using the experience we had and that how Helavest.com was born. We have utilized ''marry go round'' to see them sort the gap, there are still big gaps in relation to finances and advise that need to be solved. Story Helavest is a financial inclusion product which is tailor made to assist the largest workforce in Kenya (security guards, juakali sector and young entrepreneurs) with a saving and financing function. Helavest is a mobile based savings and credit cooperative that is based on the principle of simplicity in access to financial services. Often sidelined by the larger financial institution, helavest gives them an easy access to a savings platform and access to easy to use technology that enable s them get access to loans at a cost effective rate. The mobile application and web based platform will ensure they are a click away from solving there financial needs. Solution

We are solving a problem of flat screen and static banners, we designed a brand new device with 360° visual, sound effects, smell freshener and ability to feel the temperature. (Cooling effect for advertisements of soft drinks.) Idea

On 16-17 January in 2016 Nika and Sandro participated in an Art-Hackathon,. They had to create an original decoration for the bar in 36 hours.

  41. 41. FasterCapital - Portfolio 42 A number of mortalities are directly related to unhealthy lifestyles. Governments, the world over are becoming increasingly active in fighting risk factors of the most common causes of death such as Cardiovascular, Cancer and Diabetes. Other medical problems such as Anxiety/ Depression reduce the quality of life and affect interpersonal relationships. It is estimated that if communities adopted the health principles, such as those promoted at the Health Festival, the mortality rates for Cancer and Cardiovascular diseases, for instance, could drop by 60-70% and 70-80% respectively. Challenge The festival intends to be the regions all-encompassing premium health, wellness and lifestyle event experience that will reflect the global move towards health, wellness, longevity, positivity, vitality, environmental awareness and sustainability. We are promoting and encouraging adoption of healthier lifestyles and behaviors. Across Africa, there are thousands of healthcare professionals and companies that manufacture products aimed at the healthcare industry. Our intention is to ensure all healthcare professionals and industry related companies’ partner with us, since our event (the Health Festival) has the potential of hosting and promoting afore mentioned fields, across the country. Idea
  42. 42. FasterCapital - Portfolio 43 At the onset of Iris Management, we began by offering event management and association management to professional medical associations as well as soft-skills management services. The owner Phanice has worked in the corporate event management business since 2006, offering events management services to medical association scientific conferences, medical camps and monthly educational meetings. She also worked with a corporate event company In-Sync Kenya and a training company, Quantum Kenya marketing event offerings to attendees, exhibitors and sponsors. Currently the main offerings of Iris Management are: Soft Skills Management and Health Festival. It is the wish of the founder to remain a debt-free establishment. However, recognizing that in reality not all variables are controllable, outside financing is a sustainable option. Story Economic growth, rapid urbanization, changing lifestyles and the growing influence of western cultures and diets, are just a few of the factors responsible for making fitness, health & sports some of the big ‘mega-trends’ in Africa. As a result, there is a boom in the demand for related products and services that enhance one’s health, fitness and wellness. The good news is that Africa’s middle class is expanding and is one of the fastest growing middle class populations in the world and this of course means that there is an increasing demand for fitness, health and sports services in Africa.

  45. 45. FasterCapital - Portfolio 46 1. Many are the competitors that provide solutions to the unemployment problem, but we always fesons the sad fact that this problem persists and is even one of the causes of poverty, hunger and despair in Africa. Then a major challenge will be to interconnect our three target users (Jobseekers, professionals and Companies) them first, and secondly to external users. 2. For us, we have to get to interconnect all these consumers and four misseurs in real time with little information collected (location, personal information, job offers) without the internet and via SMS. It's a quality set of Geo- localized relationship that will be our challenge in this case. 3. Make easier access to our opportunities and jobs by distributing them through our support "kalejob TV". Challenge The main objective of the idea is to build a skills bank and working on demand, while enabling:- For job seekers to view and apply for jobs via SMS without internet connection.- For companies to benefit from qualified and experienced skills through a matching online or offline.- For professionals to offer services on demand within 500 meters around via SMS with or without internet connection. Idea
  46. 46. FasterCapital - Portfolio 47 So usually, I was getting all sorts of job opportunities on my mobile phone via SMS because I subscribed to this offer on a mobile phone operator. But one day, I received a very nice job opportunity that matches my profile. Immediately I have to apply for this job, but I could not access the Internet, it was impossible to apply this job opportunity that could change my life. Like me, there are over 250 million young Africans unemployed, with more than 12 million young people enter the labor market and the rate of Internet penetration in most African countries is 10%. Story Kalejob is skills bank and working on demand via SMS. It develops web and mobile Apps to help unemployed young people find jobs easily via SMS with or without internet access.- With kalejob, we allow qualified and experienced young professionals to fill market their skills through our App or via SMS,- Our Mobile App "kalejob" allows for the linkage between job seekers and employers in Geo-locating within 500 meters without the internet connection,- Our Mobile App also allows to provide personalized assistance to job seekers online,- Kalejob also offers companies the opportunity to be able to job interviews online.

  52. 52. FasterCapital - Portfolio 53 Nowadays modern cat owners see their felines as family members, not ordinary pets. At the same time they have a very busy lifestyle with little time to focus their attention on their pet’s preferences, health trends and habits; and follow a reactive approach that relies on veterinarians to cure illness/disease of pets. When we interviewed 200 cat owners in different countries, we found out that many of them lack proper tools to understand needs of their cats and they would like get access to tailored information about own cats without the need to turn to veterinarian. 89% of interviewed cat owners said that they would like to know what their cats are doing when they stay alone at home. So we at Moggie decided to change the way in which cat owners take care of their beloved cats. Challenge MOGGIE is a smart collar and mobile app for cats that becomes the world’s first cat care system with embedded intelligent vet algorithm. The app keeps all data about the cat (age, weight, breed) in one place and shares tailored tips. The collar tracks cat’s daily activity with intelligent algorithm, understands needs and analyzes behavioral patterns of the pet. Idea
  53. 53. FasterCapital - Portfolio 54 Moggie started when one of our co-founders - Nataliya - moved to Sweden with her cat. She faced lots of questions in the new country - how to treat her cat, when to turn to veterinarian, how to find hosts, how to know what the cat is doing when she was travelling - and these questions were difficult to answer in the new environment. She tried to find device to help her answer questions and stay connected to the cat despite distances, but failed as there is nothing in the market tailored for cats. That is how the idea was born. Nataliya and Anton who used to work together in one of Rotary International programs started developing the idea from Sweden. In a month Vasanth, who went together with Nataliya to IE Business school in Madrid where both got MBA conference and through personal network they met Vitalii - cat lover who has deep experience in hardware engineering. Story By offering cat owners the tools - smart collar and mobile app - that give access to detailed information about the cat's lifestyle, needs and behaviors, Moggie will switch the cat owner’s behavior from reactive to proactive. We help the owners to reduce dependency on expensive vet care and spot potential health issues earlier. Moggie also provides the customer opportunity to get more real-time insights about cat's activities when the owner is away travelling, working etc. Moggie is the first solution tailored only for cats which is reflected in advanced algorithm, vet recommendations, light weight and small size of the collar.

  57. 57. FasterCapital - Portfolio 58 lee is a successful music producer, dj and published artist who is signed to various record labels around the world with his music gaining airplay on radio. Lee Fitzpatrick Director
  58. 58. FasterCapital - Portfolio 59 A brief about the problem the startup is solving: One of the major problems for artists today, is to get their music heard. To do this, an artist will approach a number of record labels hoping to get their music signed so that the label will take their music to market. The problem is, labels receive hundreds, if not thousands of demos a week and therefore don't even listen to most of the singles/albums that are submitted. If you are lucky enough to get signed, the artist then has to sign over most of the rights to their music and await a release date. Then in most cases, an artist is dictated to when they will get paid along with any reductions the label will take for marketing, design, promotion and so on. Challenge A brief about the idea of the startup: Musjic was founded in 2016 and provides a global online platform whereby Artists, Bands, Musicians, Record labels and more can sell their original music at the price points of their choosing in multiple currencies. The numerous advantages and benefits to an Artist listed on Musjic are: the ability to sell their music immediately, more exposure, create awareness, generate more fans, customers, revenues and have more control over their music sales. Idea
  59. 59. FasterCapital - Portfolio 60 A section which included how the team of founders have met each other and came up with the startup: Lee Fitzpatrick and Perry Wells have been good friends since their school days. After discussions about the many issues in the music industry, Lee and Perry came up with the idea for a much fairer, more simple yet effective way to monetize your music whilst attracting new fans from around the world. Story A brief about the solution proposed and its impact: Musjic is unique because it is the world’s first music based social media platform were fans can discover new music and purchase it directly from the Artist, Band, Musician or Record label. Musjic has a competitive advantage from the seller's point of view because of its unique concept that helps the Artist gain more control of their sales and revenues, custom and fans. Musjic also has a competitive advantage from the buyer's point of view because it helps them easily discover new music from Artists that they would not otherwise of heard of which helps to generate more sales.

MyPeegu on the other hand takes efforts towards making the wardrobe tailor made for each child so that the child grows freely in all the aspects and is not a victim of over expectation from parents, teachers or any other adults. We at MyPeegu, with the use of evidence based practices, support teachers, parents and schools to understand each child instead of just teaching them or molding them in a way that is expected by the society. Challenge Evidence suggests that a person’s success, health and emotional wellbeing have their roots in their childhood. We know that if we get it right in the early years, we can expect to see children thrive throughout school and their adult lives.

  65. 65. FasterCapital - Portfolio 66 So, it clicked me when I had to shift to a lot of places because of my Father’s postings. That’s when I started noticing the changes in me as I went on to new places every now and then. I was thrown out of 3 schools out of 12 schools in my whole schooling for my behavior then I started adapting the culture, the overall flavor of the new place every time I shifted. This was good but not so good at times. Story The prime objective of MyPeegu is to track the behaviour of each and every child according to the expected norms, recognize the skills of the child and enhance them and tap the deviations in the child’s development/behaviour in an unique way called "Activity Based Approach". MyPeegu not only focuses on the children but it also benefits the teachers and school management as the children in school will be on regular monitoring which in turn gives best possible results in terms of all the aspects(Overall development), and not just academics.

  83. 83. FasterCapital - Portfolio 84 PROBLEM: no unique platform for direct online booking in one place of performers and event venues for private or corporate events in UAE. When person wants to celebrate his/her special event like wedding, birthday or any other significant occasion there are only few ways how to do this: he eight her goes to the event agency which charge almost 20 percent of the event budget or do it by himself. And it is really takes a lot of time and efforts to organize everything when doing by yourself! Individual has to think up the idea and scenario, find suitable event location (and rather often it is not simply restaurant or night club- it could also be yacht or villa, or outdoor location). Challenge Recommendation Platform for Private Parties! The idea is to create a platform where individuals can organize their events (like birthday parties, weddings, corporate events, etc.) very easily and much cheaper than through the event agency) We use machine learning to make our recommendation platform as custom-oriented as possible. Thus, we will fit the specific needs of each of our Customer with much more less price as Event agencies have! That is our unique selling preposition! Idea

And as a feedback, the project got two more co-founders, current CEO of the company, who is perfect in marketing, PR and business development as well. And another one is a technical guru and the best developer, the startup could ever have . As a result, we have a very strong team and we do our best to make SMOOGLEE really successful. Welcome to join to our success! Story Recommendation platform based on machine learning system where Customer puts what he/she needs as well as the budget and platform recommends the whole Event (event script, venue, performers, decorations, etc.) The platform works as online event agency. Client has two options: either book an entertainer separately or book the whole event – we call this option “Package” The main aim of package offer's module is to recommend the best option for the event based on the client's needs and requirements.

  92. 92. FasterCapital - Portfolio 93 Worldwide, farmers in emerging markets are underperforming significantly. There are two major bottlenecks: First of all, farmers lack skills, because traditional education is not equipped to reach small farmers at large scale. Secondly, farmers lack access to vital services to grow their business, like credit, insurances, or input supplies. Challenge Traktor is a digital platform that connects farmers to agricultural best practices, information, goods, and services. Our application provides educational content for distance learning, information such as market pricing and weather updates, easy access to expert advice and consultative services, and the ability to purchase goods and services digitally. Idea
  93. 93. FasterCapital - Portfolio 94 Jonne Catshoek and Mark van Embden Andres have been working together since January 2014, when they founded Elva, a leading IT development, data collection and analysis company for development organizations worldwide. While starting Elva, we noticed the significant uptake in mobile connectivity in Georgia. Working with various agricultural companies, we saw both the needs and opportunities were greatest in rural areas. Having tested effectiveness of reaching farmers online over the course of 2015/2016, we decided the time is ripe for a truly mobile-first application for farmers in emerging markets. Story For farmers, Traktor solves a critical needs for better information and decision support. Traktor provides a range of tools, from market price information to advanced weather data . For businesses that serve farmers, Traktor provides an affordable way to increase sales beyond their immediate areas through online sales and more effective marketing and customer outreach. Unlike most of our competitors, we will be able to start operations with a fully online/mobile first approach - i.e. very low reliance on low-bandwidth technologies like SMS or IVR. In Georgia, around 30% of the population is online at least every week (World Bank, CRRC Georgia). We believe this is marks a critical mass that allows us to engage farmers using almost exclusively high-bandwidth technology. Solution
