Education is like water. Syminar’s mission is to enable free-flowing education by making learning
moments efficient to produce, organize, and access.  The initial focus is healthcare education. Clinicians learn in specialized ‘classrooms’ comprised of hospital units, operating rooms, and clinical simulation labs—confined spaces that limit training to small batches of students. Moreover, national supplies of clinical instructors run low.   As such, clinician programs struggle with finding training facilities and faculty, outputting sufficient clinician graduates, and meeting the growing healthcare demands of aging Baby Boomers.

Syminar brings learning environments:

Online in virtual reality (VR)
In VR learning spaces, instructors host and interact with larger groups of students without overcrowding.

Useful affordances
Affordances (actions made possible by the digital environment) augment the interactions and
management of large student groups.

VR sessions are simply conducted by the instructor; precluding the plethora of touch-points traditionally needed for distance-learning (media production teams, IT administrators, equipment vendors, etc.).

Everyday, exposure to many chemicals take place undetected. For example, chemical leaks in homes, industry, and transportation such as pipelines, escalate to the point of irreversible damage before detected. Imagine a world where a tiny sensor can see in more than just color, namely, readily identifying material compositions and chemicals of what it sees. 

You can think of our technology as a “super digital camera.” Conventional digital cameras are sensitive to only three spectral bands of red, green, and blue (RGB). However, hyperspectral imaging systems, such as ours, is essentially a digital camera that can see hundreds of bands. This spectral hypervision allows us to detect the amount of energy present in each spectral band, and thus, determine what materials are present in the field of view. This makes chemical sensing as easy as taking a picture.

Effne is an online B2B marketplace for interior design professionals to source and buy luxury wholesale furnishings.

Currently there is no online marketplace that replicates the Brick & Mortar system. 
Designers must source product in person at one of 12 major design centers across the country or by bouncing from site to site without access to price or current availability.

Effne, pronounced /ef-fa-nee/ stands for “electronic” FF&E.
FF&E is an acronym (Furniture, Fixtures and Equipment) used as a stand alone term in the interior design industry referring to all products used in a design project that are not part of the building itself. 

Effne is moving the showrooms and design centers online by using technology to provide tools and information to streamline processes, create greater connection and help designers, showrooms, and manufacturers save time and money.

Auto Zen

Fandom communities and their content creators are distributed and use multiple apps and shadow markets to share, connect, and monetize around their shared interests. Platforms like YouTube and Instagram are mainly tools to share videos but remain difficult for tight knit communities to meet and engage, and don't focus on shared values that participatory cultures, like fandom communities, need to thrive. This is evident through examples such as vitriolic comments on video posts.

ZEN is a social video sharing and public messaging platform where content creators in fandom communities can easily meet, collaborate, and create social and economic value around their shared interests.
