AbsoluteClimo is a Hawaiian based climate corporation specializing as a world leader in business to business climate forecasting and risk management. AbsoluteClimo created G๏TCHA, a proprietary breakthrough global prediction model forecasting climate worldwide at 25km resolution. G๏TCHA is based on a new forecasting method and technology invented by AbsoluteClimo, representing a paradigm shift in climate prediction.
Incumbent climate prediction models are unusable by enterprise because they are conceptually similar to an old modeling paradigm currently applied to modern weather forecasts, which is proven to fail in less than 30 days.
As a world first, G๏TCHA shifts the paradigm by skillfully forecasting climate up to 30 months into the future, and by directly expressing the confidence of its forecasts. This opens up new market opportunities and frontiers in enterprise risk management to confidently plan on time scales of monthly, seasonally, quarterly, semi-annually, annually, and beyond.
G๏TCHA holistically incorporates Earth’s land, oceans, ice and atmosphere; forecasting the climatologies and confidence of temperature, precipitation, winds, sky (sunshine and clouds), tornadoes, hail, floods, droughts, lightning, hurricanes, ocean waves, river flows and more.
AbsoluteClimo targets market sectors with economic risk exposure or sensitivity to climate variability: energy, industry (construction, water, and retail), financial services (hedge funds, trading, insurance and reinsurance), transportation (air, water, land), public services (health and hazards) and agriculture. AbsoluteClimo also specializes in hurricane and typhoon preferred tracks, risk locations to help the insurance and reinsurance industry assign appropriate risk to their portfolios.

Ahalogy is a data and software solution that makes it easier for marketers to act on changing customer interests. The company was founded in October 2012 as one of the first Pinterest marketing technology partners. The founders saw Pinterest as a unique media channel—part social, part search—in which the marketing actually adds value to the consumer experience. Over 100 million people use Pinterest to guide purchase decisions, making it an idea platform for marketers that develop useful content, such as recipes, beauty looks, parenting tips and travel ideas. Ahalogy developed a software platform to help brands take advantage of this opportunity and optimize their posts on Pinterest, and has signed on leading companies such as P&G, Kraft, Campbell’s, Nestle, Jo-ann, Kroger and Hallmark. Ahalogy continues to be the leading optimization technology for enterprise marketers on Pinterest. However over the past year the company has expanded to two additional products and software solutions to further improve clients’ impact: First, Muse™ is a new, stand-alone app that allows marketers to easily uncover and act on trends in their product categories. Unlike most social listening software, which only informs marketers what people are saying about their brand, Muse taps into data from Facebook, Pinterest, and Ahalogy’s own Influencer network to present category insights to help guide decisions and drive growth. Muse highlights both the highest-volume topics in your category, as well as surprising, emerging topics in a highly visual and inspirational interface. Marketers are using consumer data from Muse to improve results in a wide variety of creative decisions—from social ad placement to promotion planning to product development. Second, Brandables™ is a custom content and influencer marketing solution for branding and shopper marketing campaigns. Brandables was created by Ahalogy because of its clients’ desire to quickly take advantage of the category trends its software uncovers. The product is distinctive in three ways: (1) it starts with category trends insights unearthed from the Muse platform; (2) it taps into a proven, high-quality network of over 5,000 influencers that run Ahalogy software; and (3) Ahalogy optimization tools deliver guaranteed CPM/CPC on social channels (Pinterest & Facebook). Ahalogy is led by Bob Gilbreath, co-founder and CEO. Bob began his marketing career at P&G, where he launched new products such as Mr. Clean Magic Eraser and was named an Advertising Age top marketer. Following P&G, Bob became partner and chief marketing strategist at Bridge Worldwide, a digital agency that he later sold to WPP. Following the company sale, Bob helped create POSSIBLE, a leading global digital agency network within WPP, and served as its Chief Strategy Officer. Bob is author of The Next Evolution of Marketing: Connect with your Customers by Marketing with Meaning (McGraw-Hill, 2009).

The nature of online social is changing. Facebook created a networked world by introducing the social graph, and built a platform on asynchronous commenting and liking of content. However, that type of social interaction has the unintentional result of creating a feeling of loneliness and disconnected social interactions. We are entering a new age of richer, real-time communications that seeks to engage in the same depth of our real relationships, with new social interactions designed to replicate the experience of actually being together with your friends.
Founded by Sean Parker, Airtime is shifting the way the world is present together and evolving the way we share and consume media. Currently available for iOS and Android, with desktop in the coming months, Airtime is a social video network that let’s you talk, watch, and listen together through group video and live media sharing.
Airtime organizes your social graph into rooms, virtual spaces for friends to hang out on group video just as they would in the real world. Integrated with a wide range of content currently including Youtube, Spotify, Soundcloud, Twitch, Vimeo, and Giphy, people can share the music and videos they love while seeing the reaction of their friends, all without leaving the app. The social experience of being together around content is introducing a new type of engaged social system.
This experience is made possible by a 55 person team that has pioneered Airtime’s proprietary technology infrastructure based on the WebRTC standard. The company has built a distributed global video infrastructure, delivering a seamless experience for users across bandwidths and device types while scaling to millions of concurrent users for both video and co-consumption content.
Airtime is based in New York and Palo Alto and is backed by Kleiner Perkins, Andreessen Horowitz, Google Ventures, Founders Fund, Accel, SV Angel and a host of other partners.

Organizations have grown, adding product platforms and channel platforms to meet the evolving needs of customers. While expanding offerings, this has led to fragmented understanding of the customer relationship, and dis-jointed investment in customer the customer experience.

Proven platform success and Partner relationships with IBM, Accenture, Tata, Infosys and Tech Mahindra are fueling an opportunity to support the rapid growth of CRMNEXT implementations and industry vertical solutions.

This growth rate is expected to continue as the pace of the CRM market maturation continues to quicken with companies replacing both legacy enterprise CRM and departmental cloud based implementations of CRM with enterprise-wide omni channel digital transformation initiatives that require the unique platform capabilities of CRMNEXT.

As the first AI/cloud software for student finance management and actionable analytics, Vocado provides higher education institutions with the ability to significantly improve student finance administration — the most complex, costly, and highest student complaint-generating process.
Vocado brings Fintech to EdTech with comprehensive intelligent automation for the $250 billion annual student finance market, delivering highly reliable, consistent, and compliant results to:
– Streamline operations (processing effort and cycle time)
– Enable new academic & funding models
– Improve student outcomes and experience
– Assure regulatory compliance
Until now, software solutions for higher education have been stubbornly parked in the past, involving significant manual processes making it both, difficult and costly to keep up with increasingly complex and ever-changing financial aid rules and regulations, and too slow to address students’ requirements. Furthermore, most software solutions are not able to address the new flexible (and far more complex) academic models to accommodate the 21st learner. Vocado is designed specifically to automate all academic models giving in situations the flexibility to embrace new learning models (online and offline).
Using AI, Vocado creates a paradigm shift in the type and the way student finance and academic data is collected and managed. Each student’s finance and academic data & events are managed individually, automatically, and in real-time — providing visibility into a student’s entire program supporting better informed financial decisions and enabling actionable analytics that identify and improve the institution’s ability to help “at risk” students.
– Potential to unlock over a $1billion plus in market efficiency.
– AI/cloud software with real-time integration and management of student finance data and student lifecycle event triggers.
– Only solution to simultaneously support multiple academic learning models: Term, Nonstandard Term, Non Term, & Competency-Based Education.
– Student finance rules and decisional processes tested with over 250,000 different test cases to ensure an unprecedented level of automation & compliance.
– Real-time data integrated on the Vocado platform enables unique ability to perform predictive/prescriptive analytics on student lifecycle patterns, driving proactive actions to improve student outcomes and institutional performance.
– 100% of Department of Education regulations, those of 50 U.S. States, and thousands of private scholarship funds, are codified and maintained in a configurator to easily adopt rule changes.

ZERO lives at the intersection of technology and creativity.
Our team of passionate and experienced artists, producers and technologists utilize ZERO’s custom visual effects pipeline to deliver unique commercial and feature film work. We don’t silo the participants – a commercial may require the spectacle of a blockbuster, and a film benefits from the thinking behind a short and snappy spot. Technology builds from this creativity and at the same time helps to inform solutions, some which can be productized into standalone IP.
Innovation plays a big part in this – in 2011, ZERO launched the world’s first completely cloud-based rendering solution, ZYNC, which was sold to Google in 2014 and continues to play a major role in virtually all large productions today.
ZERO itself opened its doors in 2010 to promote artistic innovation and out-of-the-box thinking. Whether working on commercial campaigns for Toyota, Samsonite, Ocean Spray, Bose, and Klondike or feature film like Patriots Day, The Magnificent Seven, and Ghostbusters, we strive for nothing short of excellence. Currently employing a team of 75, each year has shown substantial growth of both revenue and profitability, even while growing ZERO’s physical footprint.
A recent expansion to offices in Los Angeles continues this consistent and substantial year over year growth. The result? New stories and new technology that influence large audiences.
