Business Cases

Xicato


Xicato believes that with better light, shoppers will buy more, diners will order more and guests will be happier and feel more comfortable. In turn, for owners, operators and managers of environments, better lighting will contribute to higher sales, margins and brand perception. The true value of Xicato light lies in delivering on the aesthetic and economic potential of LEDs: the quality of light, its efficacy and ownership cost for retail stores, hotels, restaurants and bars, architectural environments and more.

Enflux


Enflux makes Motion Capture Clothing for animation, gaming, virtual reality, sports, and health. Our sensors and electronic components fit seamlessly inside everyday clothing and communicate with smartphones and computers through bluetooth. Enflux started because of their love of data and the love of learning and exploring the environment. Their goal is to solve real problems for real people by giving them access to meaningful and accurate data on how their bodies move.

FireBee by HydroBee


All over the world people worry about power outages caused by weather or disasters and many buy back-up batteries or generators. Or they live, work and play off the grid either by choice or due to no power available. When batteries are dead and fuel is gone, where will they get critical electric power for phones and lights? Critical power now means USB power. HydroBee are inventors, product designers and humanitarians for international development; creating a new, renewable energy platform and product line.
