About speakers

Boris Ibrahim
SEO at Argentum
Sagar Jaiswal
CTO at Argentum

Which is why, I co-founded Argentum, an up-&-coming startup that is paving the way for a DC powered future. We are working on IoT presence/environmental sensors, DC Micro-Grids (DCMG), and an AI powered building automation platform called Spacr (spacr.ai). Our goal is to accelerate the progress to a net-zero/LEED zero future. Previously to Argentum and during my time as a Micro/Nano robotics research student at the University of Toronto, I founded "Sup". Sup made it possible for students to connect through similar interests, courses and popularity rating. The app generated 100+ downloads within the first two days!

Good morning. And welcome to the innovator pitch competition as part of today's Summit. My name is Michaela Pratt and I'm very excited to moderate the session today. My company Urban living Futures has a great interest in discovering and supporting the scale-up of a best-in-class, urban innovators such as the ones that you will hear from today. We organize this to our digital platform uplift which is an innovation marketplace with deep information on emerging Innovations, including the performance measurement

and verification progress tracking geospatial context in the feature to allow experts to review and assess and select Innovations for and that's how we came up with this innovators. That will be teaching to our panel of Judges. We are three Partner with the iot projects on it for the innovator pitch competition and this is a great forum for the selected, innovators to present their ideas to Executive in some of the leading Brands and companies in the industry over the last few weeks. We have received applications from some incredible smes doing

truly Innovative work and after a lot of hard thinking and some tough decisions are expert assessment panel, narrow down the applications to 3sm. He's with novel and very relevant Technologies. These innovators will present their ideas to your to our panel of Judges today and participate in a round of Q&A. Following their presentations and we will announce the winner of the pitch competition by the end of the event today, but at the end of the conference and the winner will receive the honor of being named the 2020 iot projects. I'm an innovator of the year as well as support

from and meetings with some of our judges and a one-hour consultation with Microsoft One commercial partner team or a Microsoft iot business leader, as well as coaching for Microsoft, Ai and iot Insider Labs. So, let's begin the pitch competition by introducing our wonderful panel of Judges. These people, these are people with deep knowledge of iot and protect and they could be very strategic, an instrumental contacts for the innovators that are pitching today. Which we have with us today, Adrian Wang, who is the director

of innovation and sustainability at tried out? Charles Dyer who's the CEO and co-founder of sovereign asset management and the CEO and co-founder of traverses capital. Julie Morin, who is the director of iot solutions. Smart infrastructure at Microsoft Canada, Mark Bryant, who is the Chief Information officer at PCL Construction and Travis Allen, who's the president and CEO of twia investment, Holdings and CEO and president of Eddy, Solutions. Do judges. Thank you all for being here.

And I'm sure you're all very excited to watch the pitches. Although you also have the tough job of selecting over the next few hours, One winner from this excellent selection of themes and products that you will hear about in the pitch competition. So today is participating in a daters include argentum Electronics with their product spacer, which is an intelligent direct. Current microgrid Sky Foundry with skyspark, a building analytics platform and in Dover Corporation with their smart, Joe, thermo-pile each innovator while give a five-minute presentation

after which we will have a 5-minute question answer. With the judges and we will provide it will be providing some but please innovators be mindful of the time and stick to your 5 minutes and I'll try to keep the question answer. To 5 minutes as well. And just before we start the presentations, I would like to mention that this webinar will be recorded allowing people who cannot join at this time to view it later. So our first presenter today is the team from argentum Electronics. We have Bowlus Abraham and cigar jaiswal with their Innovation

spacer argentyn. Team. The floor is yours for the next 5 minutes. Well, thanks. Just want to make sure everyone can hear me. Okay, cool. I will share my screen in a five minute timer. Awesome, you can see that. Yes, we can pull screen. Perfect. Okay, my name is Ibrahim, the co-founder and CEO are gentlemen and I'm joined today by Sagar J swap on a mission to change the way we distribute electricity in buildings, from alternating current and direct current. And we do this using a patented

approach. The reason this mission is important to us is because of decarbonise, is our planet by Saving buildings up to 40% and electricity costs from a baseline wear it with alternating current. So, the problem we're really is a century-old problem about a hundred and forty years ago. Thomas Edison and Nikola Tesla. They were disputing how Ultra sea would be sent across the country, a good idea. But that was well ahead of his time. So he didn't have to distribute direct current power. But we do today and because we went with Tesla's concept of alternating current

what we do today as we convert, all of that, oil change. Because everything in front of you is DC and digital all of the computer. If you're using the screen, the televisions, the speaker systems, the printers, the cell phone chargers, the laptop, turns everything is DC and digital even the appliances. Modern appliances. LED lighting is a DC device and most modern HVAC systems use brushless DC motor. If we think about the price that we pay for using alternating current, we can look at it like this. We waste up to 22% power and converting 4 LED Lighting systems up to 34% and USB

powered devices. And that's actually the reason why are USBS get hot. The USB charges a new laptop chargers the solution. For this problem is a patented plug-and-play, modular DC power distribution system. That's really easy to install and distributes DC power. Very efficiently for LED lighting in HVAC systems with sensors to make everything more intelligent and a building automation software or digital to The system is actually really easy to install. It's a routine insulation for any electrical installer. And typically, what they do is go to the AC distribution panel. That's

the breaker box for the fuse box or power is distributed into your building or into your home or into your commercial property and evidence. All the DC subpanel next to it, which can be thought of like a very large cell phone charger, and then they would with ethernet cable source of the power over ethernet system that can be daisy-chained against anything from light fixtures to HVAC units to motorized roller Shades and to third-party keyless entry system. And

it automatically recognizes. What is everything becomes. So, there's two major sources of energy savings through the Automation, and the DC power distribution. So, because we, we eliminate, the need for converting from AC to DC at the point of load, right? To save up to 20%. And then another 20% from Baseline with no automation using sensors. This is a model that we were working on for how this DC subpanel might look like. Today, it sounds like a standard actually look standard electrical panel, but we're trying to make it look like really sexy, the markets that we plan.

So we like to provide a lot of recurring value. And I'm actually capture a lot of recurring value for ourselves, has very good solution for bringing building automation into the cloud Realty. Like the prefab modular construction work it because this one is modular and make sure it fits very well with modular construction. And I think Ontario's, like a leader in the modular construction space. So we've been working very closely with some of the leaders in the space. The business model, we take us to approaches. So we start off with an Enterprise sale and then follow

it up with a lot of recruiting services that we can provide to our clients, everything from security, and access control, to building Automation and sensors as a service facilities, management and operations management. This is our team. So I'm sure like that. So sorry. It's like 20 seconds, maybe introduce yourself, and then I helped Bolas lead the hardware, and I also need the soccer team Argentina, electrical contracting. I spent most of my career and I

thank you for listening and I hope that you'll join us on our journey of creating a future with smarter buildings. I serve the people inside of them in the environments around. Thank you. Wonderful. Thank you. And you can keep your your presentation on the screen while we have a five-minute question-and-answer period from the with the judges, please go ahead judges and ask any questions that you have feel free to jump in who wants to go first? Cabela's Mark Mark from piece of construction and thanks for the presentation on. One of the things that you mentioned in your, in your car stating

Paradigm was automation. It wasn't wasn't clear to me, what the automation component was from a savings perspective. I understood your your, your power conversion, AC to DC, but it didn't understand the automation component. Just us more color on that. If you could thanks to these devices and one of the philosophies of our designers to create every make every device to a smart device. So every one of these drivers that comes into like, the HVAC or the lighting is as that bility for us to control it. So if you're up yet, so we have to answer. So there's your standard

occupancy, sensor that will just tell us if people are in the space and and help us understand how to better automate the lighting in each box or turn off the lights or no one's there. And now I'm more sophisticated indoor Environmental Quality, Raichu sensor, that helps us understand everything from the temperature, the air quality. Humidity level out, says, automate the ventilation like, how much are the events leading to the space? So we can and if we want to dim the lights because

the human, I won't perceive the brightness of the. We take a lot of those automation cues and sort of build them into the system. That answer was that like what you were saying forever? So if if you can go back to the target market slide, so you highlighted some of the target market as you know, property owners in the AC industry, but have you thought about targeting the actual utilities industry? Potentially that's actually like one that we'd like to Target. It would require us to move

further Downstream towards the meter like the the more Downstream towards the utility meter remove, the more we can interact with them. And actually like I really like this because the utilities want more information about how energy is being used in the building. So we do want to collaborate with them. So we we do see that as like a future potential Market. Thank you. Trevor does not negate the need for wiring a house. So if I was building a new house, I still need to wire the entire house. This is sort of a Sub sub panel for certain certain

appliances. Certain Outlet, certain things. I'm using the lighting system and what not. This was not replace everything. So you would still have AC outlets in the house. The house, the house the house is designed for the for like the foreseeable future may be like, the next 5 to 10 years. This is like a side-by-side system and then maybe in the next 20 years. It's a purely dc-based system because we have less and less need for AC in the home or in the building or not. Not being electrical engineer. How much, how many of the appliances can you play a little bit? It seems to me that this will

be a very small amount of the energy consumption of a typical house. Is that correct? At what percentage would your product today? What percentage of the energy consumption would I'm through this device 80% of the electricity consumption because the energy is majority of its lighting and pushing air throughout the home, but actually Heating and Cooling. The home, most of it done not electric resume through gas, or through other means. But the use of electricity is mostly used by direct current devices because LED lighting is a big push this. So I'm getting is like a rather recent

and then brushless DC motors for HVAC or more efficient. So the more we will get to the Future, the higher that percentage will go until it reaches a hundred. And if you think about solar and energy storage, these are all DC or direct current devices. Spell valid valid question. It's an interesting question, but it's surprising answer. No, we looked at this as well, for one of our developments to understand how this would require buildings. We really struggle with finding appliances on the heating side. So on higher wattage equipment, like

ovens or or microwaves or cooktops, for example, or even AC plugs for hair dryers. We couldn't find those appliances that would run off if Shirley DC application and so we rented those challenges. I think you touched on this earlier saying that you needed to run wires in parallel. The way you would have a DC, great as well as a secret within the home thermostat, how far Upstream Matthew alluded to this earlier. Or do you want install that DC to buy straight? And in a high-rise building, are both of yous are fine about the very

different women 3-phase system, you know, we're using to wait for And 120 or 600 347. Do you have any applications for high-rise commercial sector? Have you considered those points transmit electricity, right? Because you can go very high voltage without having the same safety concerns of a c because they see that the insulator has to be like quite large for higher voltages before DC. It's not the same case. So so it is it is like a superior way to transmit address. And the reason I want, like I say, it's like it makes sense to push it back for them to do

it is because even though utilities are starting to transmit DC over long distances were more with in Canada, in the western Canada. We have a hvdc wine, a high voltage. DC, why not transmit electricity from the from the south to the north. It's it's really like the way of the future. And when you think of appliances you can actually look there's a building a hotel, the Sinclair Marriott in Texas, which is a phenomenal, use case, or case study. We're LG designed appliances for that building to be purely dcseau, refrigerators oven, they designed appliances because fundamentally

like a heating element is a resistive. It works AC or DC doesn't matter. What was electricity get. This is all like a legacy stuff. We're stuck with from the days of Tesla. Like the waiting for structure was built and why it's hard to change infrastructure to cut off. This is a great conversation and all very interesting and I'm sure the judges would love to hear more that we are 5 minutes. We're over 5 minutes for the question answer. I'm going to have to move on to the next presentation. So thank you very much. Okay.

So that was wonderful and thank you very much today, argentum team. Next we're going to hear from Oh, sorry from Andover Court with their geothermal piles. So do we have and Ruby is available? Yes. And your your screen and you can begin your presentation. Thank you. Can you see my screen and is the audio K through today, to tell you about how we're innovating Heating and Cooling from the ground up. So, did you ever wonder why our ancestors lived in caves? Sure. Safety and

Security are certain there was another important reason is the stable temperature of the ground and its ability to moderate the outdoor climate. So in the winter time, the caves were warmer than outside. And in the summer time, they were cooler. But as we developed and we emerge from our caves, We Built Homes, buildings and cities all the while this meant more and more energy just to keep our fragile bodies comfortable. And so, here we stand today in Canada. Where nearly 80% of energy we use in our buildings and homes is just for heating cooling. In this represents nearly a quarter of all

the energy we use in the country and produces nearly a quarter of all the carbon brushes in the country as well. But there is a renewable solution out there and it takes a cue from our ancient ancestors and that's geothermal heating and cooling which uses the stable temperature of the ground to heat and cool. Do the geothermal, use the same process that your air conditioner uses to cool your home by moving heat from your home to the outside air except for Bill thermal that he is moved into the ground was is that a much more stable temperature and the process is reversible so you can provide

both Heating and Cooling. And because we're removing heat and not burning a fuel geothermal is incredibly efficient and has zero direct emissions. So for every one unit of electricity needed to run a geothermal system, you typically move 325 units of usable heating or cooling energy into a building. So if you are so efficient, then why are they not more widely used widely less than 0.1% of the buildings in Canada. Use geothermal will like many things in the world. It all comes down to cost and unfortunately, geothermal systems have a high upfront costs

using conventional installation methods. So unconventional systems heat is transferred into the ground by circulating a fluid. In plastic pipes that are typically drilled and installed three hundred to six hundred feet. So as you can imagine and song these pipes is not cheap. So the payback for conventional systems can oftentimes be more than 10 years while for some that might be okay for most owners and developers. That's just not good enough. Our solution is to make use of the infrastructure are. I'm going into the ground by integrating geothermal functionality directly into steel

foundation. Piles this way, you can get both the foundation of your building and your geothermal system together in one and doing. So our aim is to drastically cut, the cost of implementing a geothermal system. So that the payback can be less than five years. It's a very exciting time right now because at this exact moment, we're knee-deep with installing a full-scale test projects in the city of Waterloo at a facility owned and operated by Waterloo North Hydro. In fact, the pictures shown here were taken just last week. The project is supported by Grant we receive from the iso grid

Innovation fund and with the help of our implementation partner is running a half the system up and running the next couple of weeks. Our Revenue model is the start by offering the design and installation of geothermal pile systems on a fee-for-service basis with our test project. We're also going to be developing Control software that utilizes some unique thermal storage properties of the geothermal power, which may offer a means to continuously optimize the performance of a system. This lends itself more to a subscription-based operation service, and I'd be happy to talk more

about these unique thermal storage properties and the potential control strategies during the Q&A. We're Team of passionate professionals with deep experience in renewable energy, construction and engineering and Ross of collaborating with a research team from Ryerson University, which is recognized globally for their research, geothermal systems. Our team is dedicated to unlocking the answer, but if their feet and finally change how we heat and cool, our buildings. Thank you, and I'm happy to answer any questions you might have. That's wonderful. Thank you and Drew a great pitch. And

now for a 5-minute question and answer period with the judges, who wants to go first. I can jump it on this one. This is Travis from Eddie Solutions. Great. Great job on that presentation. By the way, that was super concise and very informative. Appreciate that. Can you just at a high-level? Tell me you know, and in the in the kind of traditional model where the payback is 10 years and in your model, where it's five years. Can you speak to the efficacy of the two systems in comparison to each other and maybe outlined some of the key drivers? That's you know, if it's outside

of cost which is an obvious one that's you know, substantially increasing the Payback, right? So with the conventional system, there's a need to drill and install. Those plastic pipes separately from any other infrastructure in the building. Until that's the main cost of incremental cost for implementing a geothermal system with the piles. What we're doing is were integrating it directly into that steel Foundation pile. So we're working with the existing steel Foundation. That's already going to be going into the ground to support the building and modifying it to to circulate through

the forking fluid within that pile. Self. Another interesting property that that we're going to look at it. I touched on it with our our control systems and Morgan Vesta gate in here is a larger fluid volume and thermal storage potential pile. So if you just bear with me here to explain a little bit. The couple of grass here, so and I need you to Thermal system. There's a natural thermal storage within that working fluid. So when a geothermal system, First turns on it operates at a higher efficiency because your your first drawing on the sheet stored within the

working fluid before you start exchanging sheet on a steady-state basis since with the ground. And so the chart hear the top left was a 24-hour lab test of a conventional, geothermal you been, and then the geothermal pile into the conventional system. Can you see the spike at the beginning? Which is a higher heat transfer it when you first turn it on until you draw that seed in the food first and then it starts. Exchanging key with a grin on his studies. They bathe this with a pile. There's a much larger fluid volume in the system. And so that stored thermal energy affect a significantly

larger. So rather than you do potentially be 30 minutes here of of higher performance, you potentially with several hours of higher performance through the pile because of a larger fluid volume. And so with this property we can start looking at using the piles almost like a natural rechargeable thermal battery by actively, let it rest and naturally exchange sheet with the ground. And that's this test here, which is another 24-hour test, which turned on a pile for 2 hours. Let it rest and then turned it on again. It's so what we see in the Shaded area here is that higher

heat transfer rate during that. So we can start segmenting up. I'll arrange for example, two groups, we can start Training them on and off and operating at a much higher efficient. The temperature range. Definitely have some follow-up questions for you. For sure. Do, thank you for that question for you. You said you have to reveal needs to be 300 to 600 feet. That's a free. That's a pretty deep pile. Does not limit the number of applications and then follow on to that most of our buildings in Canada or floated down thinking, small buildings houses retail buildings Warehouse

in that kind of thing. Is this more suited to large in a large construction projects. I supposed to yell. So let's to go to be to my questions as well as a tarsier than 600 ft if they don't have to be that deep. But typically, the conventional systems are working in a small do usually drilling under the building footprint. There's a space limit. And so they're usually going that deep because they've got to get the length to be able to get the capacity. They need there are horizontal lines out there that are only about 7 to 10

ft. Deep that, lay the pipe horizontally, but they just need the space there. So once you get to a certain depth of a little bit boat, 30 30 ft is where it goes to a stable temperature and then anyting balls. You might be said of less efficient, but you're still able to get that. She'll thermal capacity, soak, the piles aren't going as deep. But what you see in these graphs here is that there's a larger surface area. Where can I exchange? So even though you're not going as deep, you're still getting a higher surface, contact or unit that they're able to get that she transferred that that's

required on your second question. I answered a couple buildings. Yes, you're correct that it's got to be or where this system has to be with the pile foundation. So it's going to be too applicable for buildings at The Bible Foundation Solutions, so it's not going to be able to be at every type of building. But anywhere where there is a steel pile Foundation that's viable than the system could work there. Okay, the five-minute question-answer. Is actually is actually finish. So apologies to the the other judges that didn't get to ask a question,

but we'll we'll have to move on now to to be fair and have the next the next presentation starts. Oh and you thank you very much and Sky Foundry, SkyFactory. He will be presenting the last picture of the day. Okay, so let's begin. Hello everyone, and thank you to prop, Tech Summit and uplift for the opportunity. Presented our technology to you today. My name is Paul Bergquist. The name of our company is Sky Foundry and the name of our software technology. Product platform

is skyspark for the automatically finds what matters in the data coming from your equipment systems and smart devices. One common term is often used to describe. Our platform is the term analytics. It really is much more than just an analytics platform. The software contains all the functionality to collect store transform analyze and automatically present visualizations of the findings to users and operators. We often refer to that entire stack has automated informatics. So it's a complete end-to-end software application to better manage our built environment.

So really what we do is create value from data. In the way we do that is to connect the data coming from equipment systems in your building. We collect that data store it. And then take the important step, which is use Advanced Computer Science methodologies to perform automated analytics on your data. Analytics can detect patterns patterns that might represent deviations from the expected performing an outright fault and more importantly, the patterns can identify opportunities for savings and improve performance of your equipment systems. So the challenge is why there's been dramatic

advances in technology and make it possible to gain access to the data produced by a very wide range of sensor systems devices found in the building varmint and well access to that data opens up all kinds of new business opportunities for the creation of value-added services to help organizations reduce their energy consumption cost and identify opportunities to enhance operations. It turns out that access to the data is just a very first step in the journey. However, the real challenge is how to manage and derive value from the exploding amount of data produced by the smart devices into

find what matters and that data. And of course to be able to do that in a highly scalable and cost-effective way. Sky, Spark by Sky Foundry was specifically built to addresses challenge. The fully programmable. Software can be deployed on the hardware of your choice from The Edge to the cloud and multiple skyspark, nose cluster together allowing for highly flexible architectures to address real-world data, and it security needs The company was founded by an experienced team who built other highly successful companies, focus on the built environment. Our founder is Brian

Frank, who is the inventor and co-founder of the Niagara framework, co-founder tritium, which was a very successful coming has exited the Honeywell in 2005. Brian is also the primary contributor to key open source initiatives and smart device around, such as OBX Co-op Phantom and projects haystack. Co-founder John Petty was formerly the CEO traded him and his held numerous other leadership roles and bring a new technologies and products to Market in the buildings in energy, Energy, Efficiency, space or business model is simple. We sell purely software. We saw the channel of Partners and

Implement solutions for susilo tiarks. We have over a hundred 4440 authorized system, integrator and OEM Channel Partners worldwide. That brings us to the point that skyspark is a proven technology with a successful. Go to market business model, or software has been deployed on. Well, over a billion square feet in over 15,000 facilities on six continents, including Antarctica implemented by extensive partner channel. In fact, the largest analytics projects in the world in the built environment. Utilize guys, bar. Is using a variety of applications in the built environment

from Smart, Homes to Smart cities to smart, intelligent buildings. We have numerous case studies across a wide range of verticals and market segments all publicly available. If you are highlighted here, Wendy's case studies and in particular, 1670 Broadway, in Denver utilize guys Parks automated informatics and enable. The owner has achieved a savings of over $180,000 in annual operating costs, but also allow them to increase their energy star score. 285 as well as assisted them in achieving Leed gold certification so that she has a quick introduction to Sky Foundry and our skyspark

analytics platform. We thank you very much for your time today. And I look forward to the questions from the panel. Start a presentation smart from pcl5, the building owner with a million square feet, a couple of questions, one. How would I find you to what would I need to implement? Lucian + 3. What would I look like for me on an annual cost basis? So, you know, at least in terms of, how would you find us, you know, where, where it, where was fairly well known in the industry. We have partners and every Major Market in the world, essentially. Right now. We do lots of trade shows in

conferences where we're out promoting to end-users and operators real, that that just happened virtually as well as many others throughout the year. So, that's one way you can find us in terms of what you would need to buy a million million square feet. The interesting about analytics as opposed to other types of Technologies. For example, if you need a control system for a million square feet of building, you kind of need a whole controls, right? Analytics. So that you don't have to do analytic on everything in the building. You can start simply with analytics on your main electrical

meters, right? And look for energy profiles, where equipment starting early running late running, when it's not supposed to be too, and you can drive a tremendous amount of value from that to analytics isn't necessarily a thing, right? So it Depends on how far you want to go with that scope. And how far is it? And how deep you want to go within your facility? I hopefully I just all three of those those questions. Yeah, I didn't really figure out how much it was going to cost me on an annual basis soap. All you could be monitoring just a energy

energy, right? To our software scales from a small that we sell it based on capacity as little as 10 points, all the way up to millions of Point. That's the point across campus has a 10-point license. If you just want to monitor your your energy meters is $60 for the entire software stack that you can install on a very low-cost computer basis is based on the number of endpoints that I want to do. You want to listen to my building, which could be 1 or could be a hundred thousand. That's correct.

It's a drink here from Fred on. How is this different from other building automation systems, are there like Simmons? For example? Do you know what it does for more than just building automation system, right, building automation is taking and data locally, typically it to wear, whatever sensors are connected to that, that particular controller or network of controllers. Often times that doesn't take into account data coming in from other sources, whether that be weather data, very difficult to get data from a smart meter that, you know, sending us a 2L to the internet to a cloud service back

into a building automation system. Is typically only automation system is running local control loops. That's that's evaluating the sensors that are directly tied to it to take in data from all kinds of sources where there is state of his day over web services fees, weather data, building automation data and look for patterns and that data over to write typically a fault and a building automation systems going to look for. Hey, this Center is above the threshold. Well with analytics you can say You know, your energy meter was over at threshold. We deviated by this much. It

happened. This many times and in the month and it can count automatically calculate the total cost of that fault across a wide. Of time and take into account multiple data points. Versus just a high and low limit on a particular sensor. Is anyone else from the judging panel have questions for call in your software and heavy? Does your software effectively enable a digital twin in the build space. The answer is. Yes. We have an open API to rest style API. It's built on top of the

open source project Haystack, rest API and it is used in in that manner to enable digital twin technology. Why can't you been around for quite a long time? What's next for your organization terms of future Innovations? Teacher interventions, you know, we're just getting ready to deploy an application that allows you to track. If you could send her them notes or tickets or documents on particular events, you know, it and event happened in particular facility and and user operator saw this thing. And it's an exploration, can attach a ticket to it and it

can work in a cluster of no to a individual user in a in a building who assigns is ticket. It. It rolls up to the entire cluster Beacon, can be tracked across the organization integrate with other tools, like maintenance management packages and real estate reporting packages and in the ER pcrn, so, that's the next big thing. We're getting ready to to delve into So the time is up for the question answer. So I'd like to thank you for your presentation and Paul and kindly start show you screen. Thank

you. And so we can bring everybody back and we're going to be rocking the session up. So it was that it was an absolute pleasure to to moderate this session. As you hear from those wonderful, hear about this wonderful animations. The pictures were excellent. And the solutions we heard about today,, some of the most important and topical areas in in coyote. And and I'd like to thank our judges for their insights and questions. And I'm sure you all have many more. So we will get you in touch with the people that you knew that you'd like to speak to further. But

before we wrap up, I just like to ask the judges if you have any sort of final comments to wrap up any comments about the pictures in general and Any comments voice that specific innovators? We have a few minutes left for that. I can I can I can weigh in a little bit then. I'm kind of. I see lots and lots of these. When I was, I would say they're all, they're all very good to me. You know, that this would just be advice and it depends on the stage, your business, who your audience is whether it's b, c, you know, whether it's with with

series, you're in in terms of funding, but what, I personally always fine and you can't do this in 5 minutes, so I'm not suggesting that I would recommend a change to your five-minute presentation cuz that's really tough. I don't think, I don't know that I could have done our presentation in 5 minutes. So very good job there. What I, what I will say that I was fine in some of these objects that I look at it. Things like that is really trying and showcase the kind of the execution component of, you know, what you're going to deliver on as a business, you know, you see in the markets. Do you

know it's forecasting? ZZ, you know, anybody can forecast anybody can tell the story but in terms of it all went making an investment and again, it depends on the stage into your audiences, but really getting a clear understanding of how you're going to execute, you know, stability Where You Are. Today around being able to do that. I always find that when I'm, you know, with our business to, you know, we raise Capital as well. You know, one of the most favorable comments that I get on that is, you know, you know, clearly articulating, how you're going to make this come to life and in a

plausible way that isn't egregious in terms of, you know, you know, massive hypothesis of what you're going to put together. So not that you could do that in 5 minutes, but I just thought I'd share that bit of experience on my end. Very good advice. Thank you for that Travis. And any of the other judges have any final wrap-up comments. Ultraman geed geed presentations, guys, some keep pushing the envelope, you know, anchoring a little bit on on Travis's advice, try to try to find an established. I always have a crosswalk

run mentality. So when you're, when you're committing a new product, and I'll make sure there's ups and absolutely in the market understand what the client needs are. How you, how you can incubate it perfected and grow it at set us. Everyone's challenging to start a new product. Certainly and looks like you guys got some interesting technology to apply primarily around sustainability and which is certainly a hot-button issue in the world economy today. So I wish you guys the best of luck on for it. Thanks a lot. Yeah, great concept is interesting. We're

seeing sort of a cross-section here as well, from a very early stage to Rubicon, substation to a more mature stage. So interesting to see that cross-section of an interesting two for sure. Another aspect that was quite interesting, is that? So these technologies that are really impressive and you know, that I can give one piece of advice, cuz, you know what, Microsoft we get to see some of the most incredible startups that have really good ideas in the one that usually get to a gordo markets, are the ones that

have the best technology, but I really thought thought through their their business plan. In terms of their target market in like Mark said that crawl-walk-run approach is not a bad wanted to take because there's so many different areas that you can spin off and turns of ideas and when you have really bright smart people in technology, it's it's hard to have that Focus. So you'll bring the focus into what you're trying to achieve find that target market and start small. Yeah, great comments by all the panelists and all the judges. I think the pictures were terrific. I think Travis is

at home with his point about, you know, that they don't care through taxachusetts and always about the best technology, but how old will pull it all together and finding a business case that makes sense for the end-user yourself in the shoes of the consumer and what their pain points are or your client and that figure out the solution. The price is driving the right presentation. Very good. Thank you very much to the judges for your excellent. To your excellent comments and to the innovators for your excellent. Excellent

pictures. Thank you very much. All for you are at for your insights, which I think I'm sure we're very helpful for the innovators and good luck to all of the companies that presented today. You're doing great work and we wish you all the success in the world. A reminder that the winning team will be announced later today. At the end of the event, though. We'll look forward to hearing about that later. And thank you to everyone who joined us today.
