Company Description

Waste from electronics, or e-waste, is the world’s fastest-growing solid waste stream. To help ensure that the products we need are built sustainably, top brands need to get smarter and more efficient throughout the entire design-build process. This year, Instrumental introduced an A.I.-powered discovery system along with external data streams to enable engineers to find flaws as they occur and amend them before they create vast quantities of waste.

Company Description

Bloodstream infections are extremely dangerous, but positive blood tests are wrong roughly a third of the time. Kurin severely reduces the risk of blood-test contamination and benefits patients by providing the correct care for their correct diagnosis, saving hospitals time and money by excluding unnecesary treatments and medication. In 2019, Hartford Hospital published a peer-reviewed paper demonstrating a 74 percent reduction in their contaminated cultures by implementing Kurin, leading to an estimated annual savings of $750,000.
