This startup is developing a new generation of meats and cheeses made entirely from plants. It looks at animal products from a molecular level, then selects specific proteins and nutrients from greens, seeds, and grains to recreate the complex experience of meats and dairy products.
“For thousands of years we've relied on animals as our technology to transform plants into meat, milk, and eggs. We’ve found a better way,” said founder Patrick Brown, a Stanford University biologist and physician.

Modern Meadow

The team applies the latest advances in tissue engineering to develop novel biomaterials to address some of the most pressing global challenges. The company is seeking to develop cultured leather and meat products, which require no animal slaughter and much lower inputs of land, water, energy and chemicals.

The company’s lead product, ImmunoXpert, decodes the body`s immune response in order to distinguish between bacterial infections, which warrant antibiotic therapy, and viral infections, for which antibiotic treatment is generally not required.
It aids physicians to make better-informed treatment decisions by reducing antibiotic misuse. This addresses one of the most critical global health concerns today – the rise of antibiotic-resistant bacteria.

The other four startups were focused on information and digital technologies:
A design-led technology startup founded in 2009 by Roland Lamb, the company has created a patent-pending disruptive platform sensor technology called a SEA (Sensory, Elastic and Adaptive) Interface.
SEA Interfaces are touted to be highly precise, information-rich, and pressure-sensitive, and can be built in any form factor. They enable seamless transitions between discrete and continuous input, and capture three-dimensional gestures while simultaneously providing the user with tactile feedback.
The first application of SEA Technology is the Seaboard GRAND, a new musical instrument that reimagines the piano keyboard as a soft, continuous surface.

A digital startup founded by Israeli-born former Columbia University student Meron Gribetz, Meta’s Space Glasses are touted to be the most innovative augmented reality headset in development.
It can overlay interactive 3D content onto the real world, using an algorithm Meta built to track flat surfaces in real time. Unlike some previous augmented-reality systems, it needs no special physical markers – think technology such as that showcased in movies like Iron Man, Avatar, and Minority Report.

A startup with a mission to turn complex data into valuable information, it is focused on building software for a data-driven world. The company applies big data analytics and machine-learning to large amounts of complex data.
Currently it is working on helping telecom firms, banks, retailers and governments around the world to understand their business and customers better in order to improve competitiveness and profits.

Billed as a brain-sensing headband, Muse is a brain fitness tool that is intended to help you do more with your mind, and more with your life, by helping you learn to manage stress, and to stay calm and focused.
The headband uses seven sensors to detect and measure brain activity. This activity is converted into information users can track on their tablet or smartphone via Bluetooth.
Makers InteraXon, began working with brain sensing technology a decade ago in research labs alongside leaders in neuroscience, computer engineering, prosthetics and wearable computing.
