Demo Companies:
BioLite is a dynamic social enterprise that develops, manufactures, and markets consumer energy products for off-grid communities around the world. It is most well known for its patented thermoelectric technology that makes cooking with wood as clean, safe, and easy as modern fuels while simultaneously providing electricity to charge small devices. Headquartered in Brooklyn, NY, the company was founded in 2009 by Jonathan Cedar and Alec Drummond and is the recipient of numerous awards including Popular Science's Best of What's New, The Tech Awards Nokia Health Prize, and the St. Andrew's Prize for the Environment.

goTenna is a small, rugged device designed to make “No Service” no problem. Just pair your smartphone with a goTenna and communicate off-grid with those near you who also have goTenna, anywhere on the planet, regardless of access to cell reception or wi-fi. goTenna allows you to send and receive texts and share GPS locations on beautiful offline maps, without ever relying on central connectivity. Depend on it in all kinds of situations: when hiking in remote areas, traveling abroad, attending music or sporting events or during an emergency. Plus, because goTenna is end-to-end encrypted, it’s not just for when you’re off-grid, but when you want to be.
Hitlist ( is a mobile app that sends personalized, deeply discounted flight alerts to the places you want to go. Build your list of target destinations and we search through millions of airfares to find you the best in the market and help you travel more for less money. Available on iOS and Android

Tripstr is a free storytelling app for iPhone and iPad that makes it incredibly easy for people to turn the photos they take on their trips into beautiful, interactive, sharable stories that look great in the app or on any size screen on the web. We do this by taking advantage of the rich metadata in smartphone photos, combined with (patent-pending) UX that compresses the entire story-creation process into a few minutes.
Via is changing the way people get around cities.  Here’s how it works: Via’s mobile app connects, in real time, multiple individuals traveling along the same route, allowing passengers to seamlessly share a chauffeured premium vehicle for just a few dollars more than the bus or subway. Despite the complexities inherent in matching routes for multiple passengers, average pickup times are under 5 minutes and trip durations are comparable to a taxi. It's on-demand transportation on a mass scale that's friendly to our planet. We're currently live in NYC and rapidly growing.
