SPACELOGIK, LTD.

SpaceLogik helps tenants optimize their office and find new space without a broker, cutting real estate costs by 20% or more.

Read More
SpaceLogik enables tenants to find office space without a traditional broker, eliminating conflicts of interest that are common to the industry and offering commission rebates of 75% on average.

SpaceLogik’s proprietary building database, which is free to users, not only provides transparency on how much space each tenant needs, but how much space is needed from building-to-building. Their patented building ER (efficiency ratio) exposes buildings that are either incorrectly measured or inefficient by design, while adjusting space needed for efficiently designed properties. In addition to their building database, SpaceLogik’s programming and efficiency tools further reduce space by identifying optimal space usage for any office size or industry, including post-Covid workplace environments. These tools have proven savings of 15% and more at McDonald’s, Aon, Aetna, HP, Kirkland Ellis, United Healthcare, and Wells Fargo.

Other tools on the platform, like an instant construction specification/pricing tool and an automated request-for-proposal and bidding interface, allow tenants to find new space without traditional middlemen and reduce space acquisition times from one year to four months.

Read More
Fusion Foods’ mission is to cut America’s meat consumption in half. Our innovative product, DUO, blends 50% ground beef with 50% mushroom to help consumers reduce, but not eliminate, beef from their diets. Plant-based meat alternatives have yet to capture more than 2% of America’s beef market; it’s time to rethink how we consume meat to create a healthier, more sustainable food system.

DUO addresses common challenges with plant-based alternatives: we use simple, clean ingredients to produce a delicious, price-competitive product that’s healthier for consumers and better for the environment. We welcome support from advisors, mentors and investors as we work to launch, market and scale our product.

PROVENAIR TECHNOLOGIES

ProvenAir Technologies has built a system for the aviation industry that digitizes maintenance records, analyzes, and dynamically generates historical timelines for parts.

Read More
ProvenAir is a cloud based system that uses AI, next-gen OCR, and the world’s first automated algorithm to eliminate a manual, paper based process in the aviation industry. Many parts on aircraft are life limited. This means the parts, once they reach their life limit, can no longer be used on the aircraft. In order to prove that these parts are within their limits, proper maintenance and historical documentation needs to be verified to prove the provenance of the material.

This process of verification is a very manual, time consuming, and error prone process. ProvenAir solves this. ProvenAir was spun out of Air Spares Unlimited, an after market commercial landing gear supplier, in 2018. PAT has over 20 customers across airlines, repair stations, aircraft lessors, and parts suppliers. These customers use PAT to help speed their review, increase the quality of their information, and reduce the frustration in any transaction.
