The Culmination of the Hatchery Nest Process

What is Demo Day?

Demo Day is the culmination of The Hatchery NEST, a four-month process which pairs student teams with experienced mentors -- including executives, lawyers, entrepreneurs etc. -- to develop their businesses. They receive detailed feedback on their business plans, explore their proposed market, learn about patents and marketing, and build prototypes using 3D printers and other fabrication resources.

MedMe focuses on patient-centered care which revolves around the needs of the individual and those who care about them.

VERCEL

VERCEL

When a heart is removed from an organ donor it is placed in a cooler with ice, subsequently damaging the heart, giving doctors 2-6 hours to transport the heart to the recipient. This limited time contributes to more than 70% of donated hearts being discarded, leading to countless deaths each year. Vercel is building a proprietary subzero preservation system which will extend the life of a heart by over 1700%.

VOCO

VOCO

By 2020, 75% of American households will have a Smart Speaker like Amazon Echo or Google Home. If you asked "Alexa, play the latest tech news" she will respond with "Hmm, I don't know that". This is a problem because content creators and advertisers are eager to reach this audience of 240M Americans, but uploading content to Smart Speakers today is complicated. Plus, users cannot search or discover new content. We are creating a platform that solves both of these problems.

ZEROTH RESPONDERS

ZEROTH RESPONDERS

At Zeroth Responders, we recognize the challenges emergency services face when trying to arrive quickly to the scene of medical 911 calls. Our vision is to reduce response times by connecting 911 dispatchers with a network of volunteers with certifications such as CPR and first aid. They could be off-duty firefighters or nurses and can be alerted to nearby emergencies through the Zeroth app. Time is critical and these Zeroth Responders can provide care before first responders arrive.
