Three  companies will present in the usual BNC format.  

They each will have 10 minutes to answer the following six questions:

What's the product or service?
Why will the customer buy it?
What's AMAZING about the management team?
How does the company make money?
What traction does the company have?
How does the investor make money?

The 15- 20 minute structured Q & A with the audience, surrounding the six questions, will follow each presentation.


Javaya -

Did you know that craft coffee hits "peak freshness" between Day 3 and Day 14 after roasting? This is when coffee tastes best, but you're probably buying coffee that's weeks or months past its roast date.

Javaya is the only craft coffee marketplace that fresh-dates every coffee it sells (this is called the Future Fresh®️ Date). Choose from hundreds of coffees from dozens of artisan roasters across the country (including 10 from Chicago) and have coffee delivered to your doorstep just as it's hitting peak freshness. Javaya even sells bulk quantities for your office!

Azuba -

Azuba provides a secure, consolidated, accessible digital lifetime health record for every patient that is shareable with doctors and others for better health and health care. Azuba is a cloud-based secure Healthdata-as-a-Service (HaaS) platform for health insurance companies to empower their members (e.g. patients).  Azuba aggregates patient clinical and non-clinical data and uses machine learning with natural language processing to provide health records management that improves patient outcomes and reduces healthcare costs.

Security in Motion -

Few human needs are as fundamental and timeless as personal safety and security. But modern security solutions are centered around the home and people are not. People are in motion, people travel...and risk travels with them.

Enter Security in Motion's  nōmad...slender, self-contained, and deployable in seconds, nōmad is the first security system designed with true mobility in mind. Its motion sensor, HD camera, and zero-hassle cellular connectivity protect you, your loved ones, and your valuables - wherever you are.

With nōmad, you're also protected while you're in transit, making sure that your bags don't get too far away and sounding an alarm if they do. Just place a BagTag on the handle or inside each bag - nōmad does the rest.

The third presenter will be announced before the meeting.

If you can't make this meeting, join us on TUESDAY, November 6th (Election Day.... VOTE!!!!)

NanoGas Technologies -

N ano Gas Technologies recycles oil industry wastewater using our nano bubble process. Current wastewater disposal methods have led to damaged homes from over 600 earthquakes in Oklahoma. Nano Gas(tm) recovers the oil and enhances the water for reuse.  Reuse by the oil industry eliminates the use of chemicals, fouling membranes, mountains of salt residue from evaporation. The enhanced water includes Nitro Nano(tm) bubbles. Nano Gas has doubled oil well production using Nitro Nano bubbles.  Instead of damaging homes, the oil industry will use the water to increase oil production.

ForNoJo - 

When we started building ForNoJo two years ago, we had only a simple ideology: we wanted to build a company worthy of naming after our children.  We develop Android and iOS apps.  There's three we wanted to tell you about.  But we consider them traffic plays, in that the product doesn't really matter.  What does matter is that what you feel is more important than what we earn -- ForNoJo understands users are human beings, not data points.

We presented one of our traffic plays, Hitly 420.  It is the world's first social network for recreational cannabis users in Canada.   Launching for Android and iOS in Winter 2018, Hitly420 asks the user three simple questions: "What are you smoking?"  "Where are you smoking?"  "And who are you smoking it with?" Using ForNoJo's proprietary traffic methodologies, Hitly420 will launch into its market with an estimated 80% share of the entire Canadian adult population (coast to coast) being aware of the brand within seven days of its launch.  With Deloitte estimating the Canadian cannabis market to reach revenues of more than $8B annually, Hitly420 will deploy the first cannabis-oriented advertising network throughout Canada, enabling consumers of legal age to directly engage with various products, brands and other cannabis aficionados, allowing brands access to consumers who use the platform.
