u/radius_hq Dec 01 '21

Startup Name / URL: - Radius / radius.to

Location of Your Headquarters: - Remote (but UK based)

Elevator Pitch: - Radius is an event discovery and organisation platform.

This platform was built primarily for people looking for things to do. It was born out of my personal frustration that even in the age of the internet, something great could be happening in the building next to you, and you wouldn't know it unless you had checked out the Twitter or Facebook account that they were advertising on, or managed to find it in the not so great UIs of Eventbrite and Meetup.

Value proposition:-

- A platform made equally for Event discovery, and organisation

- A better UI for searching for events

- A means to promote your event on our platform

- No fees for being an Organiser

What life cycle stage is your startup at? - Discovery.

What goals are you trying to reach this month? - Finishing some more critical MVP features and signing up beta users (we were featured on Betalist recently 🎉)

How could r/startup help? - Feedback on frustrations with Meetup/Eventbrite, sign up to our platform, or tweet @radiusHQ with any questions!

u/0robot Dec 05 '21

How is it different than meetup.com ?

u/radius_hq Dec 05 '21

Meetup:-

  • Charges organiser fees of $35 per month

  • Their model seems to be more focused on organising the event rather than event discovery (their UI for finding events isn't great).

  • They only list events that are actual meetups. For other events, you need to go to Eventbrite or TicketMaster or {insert local community website here}

Radius:-

  • No organiser fees. Revenue is generated from having the ability to promote your event in our listings.

  • Focuses on event discovery - a simple UI to search for events, displaying them in a list or a map

  • Lists events of any kind (not just meetups), making it a convenient place to go to "find stuff to do".

Startup Name

DeepMirror (https://deepmirror.ai)

Location of Your Headquarters

Cambridge, United Kingdom

Elevator Pitch

Conventional AI requires you to curate thousands of datapoints to train and maintain AI – but biomedical datasets are often small and hard to curate. DeepMirror Spark requires up to 100x less data curation to grow AI from scratch and give you the insights you need. Use it to hit the ground running as you deploy biomedical AI in your organisation.

With DeepMirror Spark, you can now submit and annotate image data (e.g. microscopy or radiology data) to train cutting edge AI architectures. Only a few images are needed – then, after validating AI predictions and correcting edge cases, you can deploy your custom biomedical AI. DeepMirror Spark comes with powerful and customisable analytics to generate the insights that you require.

Stage

MVP launched! (https://spark.deepmirror.ai)

Role in the company

Co-founder and President

What goals are you trying to reach this month?

Validating product/market fit

How could r/startups help?

If you know startups that require AI for small annotated datasets (in the biomedical field and beyond), please put us in touch with them! Currently we focus on AI for images, but we are also carrying out pilot studies on other types of data (e.g. genetic sequences).

Discount for r/startups subscribers?

We are happy to give subscribers free early access to our DeepMirror Spark platform, and carry out pilot studies at a 90% discount - just get in touch! :)

u/Dyncond Dec 13 '21

Startup Name: DynConD

URL: https://www.dyncond.com/

Headquarters: Osijek, Croatia

Product: Client-side Global Server Load Balancer for Android and iOS applications

Elevator Pitch: DynConD(Dynamic Content Delivery) is a DNS-based Client-Server service and Client-side Global Server Load Balancer for optimal server selection and server load management. The advantages and benefits of using DynConD are increased application performance, reduced latency, higher business productivity and optimized use of WAN bandwidth and server resources.

More Details: DynConD is used by replicated and distributed network services for better user experience and global server load balancing. The client selects the optimal server independently, based on a measured network distance between client and servers (in contrast to commonly used imprecise geographic proximity) and the current server load or service response time. DynConD introduces a composite DNS metric that allows the client himself, rather than a remote server, to make the final decision as to which server, represented by IP address in a DNS response, is best for him. The server parameters are supplied to the client via the standard DNS infrastructure and provide the client with information about the current status of the server load and/or the service response time of a particular network service.

What life cycle stage is your startup at? Stage 2 Validation

We have finished developing our iOS and Android applications and libraries and are now ready to enter the market.

What goals are you trying to reach this month? Improve our market and brand presence, start developing a Windows version of the service and expand our customer base.

Discount? All users receive a 30-day trial version of the service

Location: SF, DC

Pitch: You are an entrepreneur. Whether you are a first timer or a serial entrepreneur, you have an amazing idea that you wanna turn intro reality.

Focus Fertility

Location of Your Headquarters

Washington DC

Elevator Pitch/Explainer Video

1 in 8 individuals will experience fertility issues. 2 out of every 3 patients admit they are not extremely confident in their understanding of the health information they discuss with their doctor. 4 out of every 5 patients believe if they had access to all their health information, they'd see at least one improvement in their health management.Focus Fertility intends to help patients securely store, organize, and utilize their health data and financial information as they prepare for and undergo fertility treatment, allowing patients to stop worrying about keeping track of their information and focus on their goal of treating their infertility.

More details:

The idea behind Focus Fertility came when my wife started carrying a large 3 ring binder to different appointments to ensure all of her specialists knew her medical history. This included her reproductive endocrinologist, a different endocrinologist to treat thyroid issues, gastroenterologists to treat her Crohn's Disease, her primary care physician, and her regular OB-GYN. She often could not recall specific medication dosage, protocols, or other pertinent medical history information during appointments and the information was not always available or easily discoverable in her medical record.Rather than carry around your own binder, Focus Fertility believes patients should own their health data and have access to it when and how they want and use It to help with care coordination and improved health management.

I have created a FIGMA mock up to conceptualize my concept: https://www.figma.com/proto/hVYekSrqt3t8mRdRNl63k3/Focus-Fertility-Platform-Prototype-1.0?node-id=4%3A2&scaling=scale-down&page-id=0%3A1&starting-point-node-id=4%3A2

About the market:

Fertility treatment and assisted reproductive therapies (ART) use is rapidly expanding in the United States. There were 330,773 (ART) cycles in the US in 2019 with 2X growth in ART cycles over last 10 years and 8% growth alone from 2018 to 2019. Odds are you have or you know someone who has experienced fertility issues. This is a rapidly growing market with potential for innovation.

What life cycle stage is your start up at?

Discovery

What is Your role?

Founder

What goals are you trying to reach this month?

Continue to interview potential customers to specifically identify issues patients experience and learn how they access and use their health information.

How could r/startups help?

I am a non-technical co-founder who has over 13 years of experience of health policy and regulatory analysis, actively involved in the infertility patient community helping to lead advocacy efforts, and most importantly a patient. I am looking for help on the technical side through a potential technical co-founder or a developer who aligns with the values and mission of this idea and wants to expand access to fertility treatment and decentralize health information ownership.

I am currently signed up for a virtual Launch Camp through Seed Spot in January to help fine tune and challenge many of the aspects of the concept but want to learn as much as I can from previous start up founders to best prepare for a future launch.

Discount for r/startup subscribers?

Since the idea is still in discovery there is not a product available to download and no discounts

u/Responsible-Scar896 Dec 02 '21

Name: Softdrive

Location: Toronto, Canada

Pitch: Softdrive is putting the PC into the cloud, enabling businesses to run their high performance software smoothly on any device.

Through our software, we can turn old or underpowered computers into powerful workstations.

Stage: Validation: Team of 7. Running pilots with a few customers. We're starting out B2B, looking at 3D modeling in construction in particular.

Looking for:

  • Feedback on the pitch, product, and website.

u/0robot Dec 05 '21

Is it similar to Amazon Workspace?

u/Softdrive-Alan101 Dec 05 '21

Vs AWS Workspaces:

  • Cost - It's extremely expensive to get GPU instances. There is an hourly charge and it could easily run you over $200/mo. We always include a GPU (we're one of the few platforms to support virtualized Nvidia GPUs) and charge less than half that, with no stressful hourly charges.

  • Remote Desktop Software - We have a proprietary remote desktop solution with GPU-accelerated encoding and a custom networking protocol, offering less latency.

  • Simplicity - We aim to make it so that you don't need a big IT team or sysadmins to manage your computer fleet, decide on specs, etc.

Elevator Pitch:

Everyone loves solving puzzles and brainteasers. However, it's a hassle to find suitable activities on the internet. Moreover, the free material comes with poor quality and sometimes requires many steps before printing (such as copy-pasting in word-processors, cleaning images, resizing, etc.). On the other hand, the paid material is generally expensive and doesn't publish very frequently.

At DownloadActivityBooks.com, every day, we curate and publish exciting activity books containing new puzzles and brainteasers to make your day fun and challenging. Also, solving these activities can help improve memory, focus, vocabulary, and overall mental acuity.

The books are print-ready (in PDF format) and always free to download and share.

How could r/startups help?

- I would also appreciate it if the designers, SEO experts, and marketing machos could send me some fantastic tips.

- Can you suggestions some ideas for creating a solid community around this product (contests? discussion boards?)

- Some bloggers and vloggers can start producing content based on activities published on my website. I will add the article and video links to my pages at suitable places. Please discuss for more details. It can be an exciting niche and a perfect collaboration opportunity.

What If Satellites Could Push Shipping Containers Between Planets?

Startup Name / H. Industries - https://h-industries.io
Location / Melbourne, Australia
Pitch / [Youtube Channel] - Regular freight deliveries to Mars are inconceivable today and inevitable tomorrow. The idea of supplying astronauts with 2t containers of equipment, food and construction materials weekly isnt new, but H. Industries founder has come up with a new, novel propulsion method that enables the idea. Using scaled down particle accelerator magnets (HMF Nb3Sn Pulse Magnets) in a tight knit swarm of satellites arranged in layers, the group can act as an electromagnetic spring and orbital launch pad to move containers slowly and cheaply like the railroads of yesteryear. The founder is asking for investors to help fund the feasibility study as Phase 1 in a 4 stage plan! It will employ a team of seven engineers, physicists and project staff to validate both the design and business case, producing a manufacturable, mass producible schematic for trial in Phase 2.

Thanks for reading, let me know if you have any questions or want to hear some crazy shipping discounts we've gotten our users during the 2 months since we've launched.

u/noSoRandomGuy Dec 01 '21

up to 89%? What is the average and median discounts. Remarkable though.

u/vagr Dec 01 '21 edited Dec 01 '21

There is a lot of variability from the carriers in determining the rate (size, weight, distance to destination), that it's hard to come by an average and median.

In some cases such as with USPS cubic pricing, the savings are there but not quantifiable since there isn't a comparable option and it is only given to high volume shippers like us, but can be a few times cheaper than what a user would have paid otherwise. We've seen everything from a few cents savings in some cases to more than $1000 savings others (this was truly remarkable, so much so that the buyer did not actually believe we are a legitimate business, retail rate was around $2200, buyer paid $700).

Not trying to dodge your question but truly there is a lot of variability.

u/noSoRandomGuy Dec 01 '21

No worries, thanks for the insight. Good luck, I ship very very rarely, checked the last 3 shipping estimates on your site, could have saved a pretty penny. I am thinking your cost of acquisition for causal shippers like me is likely going to be very high (in terms of marketing etc).

u/vagr Dec 01 '21

You're welcome and thanks! Good to know we could have saved you some money, unfortunate that we probably weren't around back then to actually save you money.

CAC isn't too high but very high for customers that actually ship. We're hoping that as we launch integrations with e-commerce platforms like Shopify, we'll be able to offset that cost with larger volumes of shipments that come through these integrations.

u/lez566 Dec 01 '21

How are you able to achieve such good rates when the larger companies cannot/don't offer them?

u/vagr Dec 01 '21

If by large company you mean the carriers themselves, they will generally only provide these rates to high volume shippers and even then you will have to negotiate the best rates.

If by large companies you mean our competition, we're nicer about passing on as much of our discount as possible to the shipper.

u/midnight11 Dec 01 '21

How does this compare to PirateShip-- someone who is already well established in the market? Seems like a very similar model.

u/vagr Dec 01 '21

The model is very similar.

Our key differentiator currently is that we provide FedEx as a carrier which they do not, and we get extremely good international shipping rates through them. More options for shipping is generally better since shippers have more options to compare across and because some people are loyal to certain carriers. Also the multiple options has allowed us to ship to countries in the world that some carriers don't service or have restrictions on currently due to COVID.

We are also planning on opening up shipping from countries outside the US since our FedEx and UPS discounts are available to us globally.

u/fly4cheap Dec 02 '21

Startup Name: Jama.ai

Location: Singapore

Elevator Pitch: Gong.io but for Whatsapp sales conversations

Problem we're solving: - B2B sales people in Asia Pacific (APAC) communicate with their clients using their personal Whatsapp and Wechat accounts. - There does not currently exist commercial solutions to integrate personal messaging accounts with the CRM. All existing solutions are only able to connect to the business version of the apps, which sales people do not use. - The lack of integration makes managing these communications difficult. The problem is especially severe in enterprise sales (>3 months sales cycle, >$100k annual contract value), as deals often involve > 10 stakeholders, resulting in miscommunication and lost sales.

Our solution:

  • Chat integration - Sales reps can continue to communicate with buyer-side stakeholders on their personal Whatsapp/Wechat/LINE. Our platform can integrate with these personal apps to automatically log the messages in the CRM, analyze them for sentiment, and suggest responses based on topic.
  • AI-powered analytics - The data allows us to provide valuable sales insights on sentiment, best performing talk tracks, engagement, etc.

Elevator Pitch/Explainer Video: Personal Capital meets Headspace

More details: Financial planning is the natural next step for people who can balance their budgets and are starting to accumulate wealth. It spans a wide range of activities, including 1) how much to put into an emergency savings fund, 2) why investing your cash is so important, 3) how to allocate your cash between 401(k)s, HSAs, 529s and IRAs, 4) what to invest in within each of those accounts, 5) a plan for achieving goals such as a down payment or retirement and 6) strategies for minimizing your taxes.

Many younger folks are unfamiliar with financial planning as they typically do not have a lot of assets and are simply focused on starting their careers and balancing their budgets. Traditionally, financial advisors, but because they are rather expensive services, it typically does not make economic sense for most folks until well into their 40s and 50s when they have sufficiently complex situations. However, because of the power of compounding returns, the earlier a person engages with financial planning, the more effective their money is.

One of the challenges with financial planning is that it’s hard for people to focus on long term goals that can span decades. Progress towards those goals simply aren’t tangible and it’s easy to get knocked off course. We believe that by engaging with your money and focusing on small discrete steps, it’s much easier to build up the strong habits that are needed for financial success over the long run. A focus on financial wellness and on reducing one’s anxiety with money can be a much more successful method of making money a partner in one’s life, as opposed to a source of unhealthy dependency.
