Themis

Themis

Themis is revolutionizing the contract drafting process for lawyers. The current process is inefficient, error-prone and cumbersome. Themis automatically builds a library of clauses from a lawyer’s precedents that can be easily accessed by the lawyer from a Word add-in. Thus, a lawyer never has to leave the word document she is working on and can easily access all relevant clauses from their precedents directly in word.

Indus

Indus

Indus aims to disrupt the hydroponics industry using a design and production pipeline for manufacturing smart soil using 3D-printing. Traditional soil used in crop production is non-renewable because its nutrients are depleted over time. Hydroculture methods, in particular aquaponics and hydroponics, replace traditional soil with a continuous stream of nutrient-rich solution flowing across the roots of plants being grown in a solid support material (SSM). Current SSMs are unsustainable at scale and only optimal to grow a small subset of crops. Engineering more optimal SSMs through additive manufacturing is a highly promising alternative, but introducing the same random porosity found in traditional soil to bestow crucial properties (i.e. percolation, water holding capacity, aeration, capillary action) is a challenging barrier. We have exclusive access to software that introduces random porosity into 3D models that mimic traditional soil, which can then be 3D-printed using bio-derived PLA filament to generate robust products. INDUS is therefore a cleantech solution that can empower greater sustainable crop production lines in hydroculture with custom-designed SSMs for optimizing plant growth. In doing so, we are working to address major global sustainability issues that ultimately impact the future of food production & supply for cities and nations.

Depactor

Depactor

Depactor is a cyber security start-up pioneering a new technology called linguistic fingerprinting to detect Business Email Compromise (BEC). Today, with tons of publicly available data and advances in social engineering, BEC’s are the most dangerous and effective cyberthreat. In 2019, BEC’s were responsible for nearly half of all cybercrime losses and total losses from BEC’s doubled since 2018. The severity of BEC’s makes it imperative to understand what it is in its essence; someone impersonating an employee in a company. Depactor’s technology is able to determine whether an email is legitimate or if its being impersonated by a cybercriminal. Using recent breakthroughs in natural language processing and stylometry, this technology creates a “linguistic fingerprint” for each employee based on their writing style in order to verify if an email is sent by the claimed sender.

EraO Tech

EraO Tech

Team EraO's ultimate goal is to bring new technologies into people's lives in an affordable way. Right now, the team is building the RoadHub, a Heads-Up-Display (HUD) device used in cars. The RoadHub can project navigation information and speed in the driver's field of view so that they don't have to take their eyes off the road to see this information. Although certain car manufacturers offer built-in HUDs with their cars, this feature usually only comes with top trim or expensive add-on packages. The RoadHub is an affordable, easy-to-install, and plug-and-play device that can be used in any vehicle. Furthermore, the RoadHub is not only a HUD, it has additional functions such as acting as a dashboard camera and garage door opener. In the future, EraO plans to introduce add-ons such as reverse and blind-spot cameras. The team aims to continuously bring people all the newest automotive technologies, at a reasonable and affordable price, so that every driver can take advantage of the years of automotive innovation.

PharmAssess Diagnostics

PharmAssess Diagnostics

PharmAssess revamps clinical pharmacy care, starting with transforming the way pharmacists diagnose and treat patients. They offer a diagnostic software solution for pharmacists to help treat minor ailments more efficiently and more confidently. Within a few months from now, Ontario pharmacists will be given the ability to diagnose & treat common ailments. However, a recent summit revealed that over 80% of Canadian pharmacists state that there is insufficient time to provide advanced services and excessive competing priorities in the pharmacy workplace. Automating patient assessment, diagnosis, and documentation while personalizing treatment recommendations empowers pharmacists to better take hold of this new revenue stream and adapt to the expanded scope of practice. PharmAssess is the first of its kind to provide a diagnostic edge in the pharmacy workplace, as no other pharmacy appliance leverages machine-learning and automation to interactively assist pharmacists in the diagnostic process. Pharmacists are able to save time, better engage in their expanded scope of practice, and provide better patient care, while optimizing workplace efficiency.

PharmDx.care

PharmDx.care

In many provinces, pharmacists are able to assess and prescribe for minor ailment conditions like urinary tract infections, allergies, and minor skin infections. Unfortunately, current pharmacy workflows and stringent rules surrounding the practice make performing this service time-consuming and unprofitable for pharmacy owners. Additionally, a lack of time and competing priorities makes the individual pharmacist hesitant to provide such a service. PharmDx.care empowers pharmacists to treat more patients, both confidently and more efficiently. Our platform automates minor ailment assessments, treatment selection & documentation, all while delivering massive time-savings. Along with our clinical decision support, we remove the administrative and burdensome tasks of being a clinician, allowing pharmacists to focus on what matters most: their patients.
