Algramo enables a contact-free shopping experience, providing only the highest quality products in collaboration with brand partners.

Sapient Industries: Provides a turn-key plug load management solution that couples an enterprise SaaS web application with a comprehensive deployment of smart plugs and smart power strips for commercial buildings.

With 18 billion pounds of waste entering our oceans annually, the WasteShark is attacking a severe environmental problem at the source to alleviate the burden of prevention, mitigation, and clean-up for all communities and stewards of water.
