Augmentr

We are augmenting the future of your remote, hybrid, and distributed work starting with communication. We’ve built a B2B communication tool to have highly contextual and collaborative discussions through screen and video recordings. Our vision is to re-design the entire work experience in a post-pandemic world, starting with how we communicate. With the ability to save questions and discussions, we can derive insights to improve employee training, onboarding programs, roadmap planning, and the performance review process. We are just getting started. We plan to operate with a B2B SaaS model with tiered pricing based on additional feature sets. Our target user is anyone who in a remote, hybrid, or distributed environment who frequently has highly-contextual and collaborative discussions. We'll be testing with 3 potential beachhead markets in North America: consulting engineers, tech workers, and university students in STEM fields. Worldwide, knowledge workers and higher-education students make up 1.3 billion people.

Learnify

Learnify is an ed-tech company on a mission to create tailored learning experiences that recreate how students learn and interact in the classroom, thereby improving their performance, organization, and engagement with their course curriculum and peers. By cross-examining a student's course materials with their current comprehension and personal preferences, we use machine learning and natural language processing to create dynamic study content, such as flashcards, practice quizzes, note summaries, and other productivity- and interactive tools to guide a student towards academic mastery. After months of testing and collecting feedback through a private beta, we are gearing up for our public launch in time for the upcoming school year in September. We seek to grow by offering a three-tiered freemium model, selling direct to students - until we have enough traction - at which point we will gradually transition over to a B2B model, partnering with universities, high schools, and other academics institutions.
