At SeedSprint, We’re always on the lookout for disruptive innovation in industries like biotech, medtech, chemical and materials, energy, and beyond. Here are five innovations that caught our attention this fall.
(1) Secure AI Labs
MIT spinout Secure AI Labs (SAIL) has created a platform that encourages greater collaboration in the healthcare industry. The platform enables organizations to share encrypted patient data protected by SAIL’s AI algorithm. In the end, innovations like SAIL invite broader healthcare discoveries powered by larger, cross-functional data sets that don’t compromise om patient privacy.
Female-led healthcare company Tia is revolutionizing women’s health with its holistic healthcare service offerings. Tia offers comprehensive primary care, mental health, and gynecology services both in-person and virtually. The company recently raised a $100 million Series B, which the company will use to scale its geographic and demographic reach. Stay tuned for more exciting updates from Tia soon!
(3) Amazon’s Astro
Amazon’s first home robot, Astro, is an interactive surveillance technology intended to monitor your home while you are away. Astro’s movement is limited to the home and the owner can remotely access its camera and microphone. Amazon plans to bring Astro to market soon, so keep your eyes peeled!
(4) UPS drone delivery
UPS’ Flight Forward drone service recently received government approval to service commercial entities, including hospitals and college campuses. This milestone marks a national adoption of drones as a means of streamlining and maximizing delivery service capabilities. Are residential drone deliveries next? UPS thinks they’re not far off!
(5) Spring Health
April Koh, CEO of mental health platform Spring Health, recently became the youngest female multi-billion-dollar startup leader as the company secured a $190 million Series C. Koh started Spring Health in response to the financial inaccessibility of mental health services and the lack of digital mental health options. Now, she is determined to establish Spring Health as a sustainable public service that offers expansive mental health benefits. We can wait to see what’s next for KOhn and her team.
