Rady Students Showcase Startups at 4th Annual StartR Demo Day

UCSD’s Rady School of Management published an article on the fourth annual StartR Demo Day, a twice-a-year acceleration program that provides “students and alumni the tools needed to start and grow their businesses” through “hands-on company development and mentorship.”

According to the article, StartR companies have “raised in excess of $22 million,” with eight startups gaining admission to prestigious incubator EvoNexus.

Six teams presented their innovative startup plans at the most recent conference:

AirCourse offers “access to food options across the airport” for hungry flyboys and girls. “Travelers input flight departure times and gate numbers,” and in return the app displays “available food options that will be delivered before departure.”

MobeWash is an eco-friendly, “waterless mobile car washing service” designed with California’s drought in mind.

Clarity Genomics is a “platform for integrative analysis of direct-to-consumer microbiome, metabolome and genome sequencing results that enables users to import sequencing data from testing services.”

Apollo Mail employs a chat-style view to “redefine how e-mail is accessed and viewed” by mirroring a “standard text message screen rather than a traditional e-mail format.”

Diario is a device that “allows children to document their feelings throughout the day.” Diario links up with “parent’s smartphones, which allows the parents to track how their children are feeling.” Probably not going to fly with teens.

Braykion is a “wearable smartband system” that “monitors, records and remind healthcare workers to wash their hands throughout the day, and especially before and after interacting with a patient.”
