Lucid Ratings

Lucid Ratings(Ian Dorward, CEO, St. Louis, MO) addresses the problem of fake online reviews in healthcare by providing a scalable, automatically-verifying rating & review system. We offer doctors and other healthcare providers a superior online reputation management vehicle, with tools to improve ratings as well as opportunities to market themselves to prospective patients.

Meanwhile, we offer patients not only the best online ratings and incentives for leaving new ratings but also a variety of tools and information to help them find the best doctor for them.


Rakr (Mohamad Yaghi, CEO, Toronto, ON) is saving farms over $30,000 annually by improving margins through smart and effective cost-cutting measures. Rakr’s first device, the NeatMeter, is a sensor solution that collects and processes barn data to make farms more energy efficient and reduce machine breakdowns through predictive maintenance thereby helping farmers save thousands.


Traditional “multivitamins” weren’t really giving us much. So Root’d made a true multivitamin with more than just a handful of nutrients. Root’d (Adams Chimera, CEO, Manhattan Beach, CA) boosts your daily routine by infusing the 25 essential vitamins & minerals your body needs every day with digestive probiotics, energizing organic greens, plus hydrating electrolytes into one amazing drink mix.


Stereotheque (Tomas Uribe, CEO, New York, NY) is the marketplace and collaboration tool that connects businesses with on-demand, remote, creative teams at a fraction of the cost and time. Our platform includes everything you need to manage multiple creative projects and deliverables, collaborators, and seamless payments.

The Medical Consultant

The Medical Consultant (Earl Maes, CEO, Springfield, MO) is a robust radiology health care platform that provides radiology second opinion and radiology virtual consultations to patients. With these second opinions by our radiology specialists, we provide patients with a more detailed and customized report for their medical diagnosis.

This gives patients the ability to take ownership of their health and question their medical diagnosis ultimately allowing them to make more informed medical decisions. We do this by providing a secure and easy-to-use virtual telemedicine consultation with one of our specialist fellowship-trained radiologists.

Our software allows patients to transfer their images, documents, and results from their computer to us where we take it from there. Our doctors then review the uploaded images and information and provide a second opinion for the patient within our patient health portal.


Tunedly (Chris Erhardt, CEO, Vancouver, BC) is an online recording studio and music publishing company, connecting songwriters and other music creators to some of the best session musicians. We provide a collaboration tool for songwriters and musicians to record studio-quality music at a fraction of the cost compared to traditional music production solutions.

We analyze the music on our platform, offer exclusive publishing contracts to those that fit our publishing catalog, and then place the songs in film, TV, ads, and other royalty-generating media.
