Truvincio – Truvincio is the first and only company currently providing turnkey, cost effective cybersecurity solutions for small businesses that actually addresses the disproportionate liability risk from data losses. Since 80 percent of data losses have a root cause of employee error, effective security starts by addressing people and process. Only then can the appropriate supporting technologies be integrated. Truvincio succeeds by commoditizing the high quality and value of top tier consulting in a proprietary SaaS offering via a subscription service. Further, as security is constantly evolving, the need for our services is ongoing. The platform is scalable, flexible and expandable – following a complete Enterprise Roadmap. The inherent value of the platform is that every new customer experience creates the opportunity to improve the service for every other customer. As customers deal with real-life situations, such as audits and security incidents, we can help them to quickly recover, then pass on the lessons learned to every other customer. Truvincio is the first to tackle the question of “reasonable” security for small businesses, thereby creating the standard to meet. Additionally, having regulators cite Truvincio as the standard for ‘reasonable’ creates a significant barrier of entry to anyone else trying to compete. More importantly, the simplicity, comprehensiveness, and ease of use we have built into our solution is extraordinarily difficult to replicate, further complicating anyone else’s attempt to compete in our market space. Our continuous innovation of the solution also means that anyone trying to copy us will start far behind and remain in constant catch up mode. Truvincio seeks $500K in a convertible note offering.

Act!vate Brain & Body – Act!vate is a scalable, landmark company with a breakthrough, patentable approach to fitness. Targeting the massive and wealthy Boomer population that seeks to redefine aging, Act!vate has developed an integrated program of stress reduction, brain training and fitness training along with diet and nutrition counseling that is customized for each member to optimize performance of both brain and body. Members are guided by a highly skilled and certified coach to achieve a level of fitness we call The Act!vated Self ™. Two trials of the Act!vate program have achieved promising increases in VO2 max (maximal oxygen consumption), working memory, and overall fitness and health. Based on our trials and validated research, we believe that our unique process will be shown to create cognitive reserve that will slow down or even stave off the effects of aging on the brain. Act!vate is the first of its kind brain & body fitness company and the first fitness company to put the brain ahead of the body to create techniques to trigger neurogenesis (the growth of new brain cells). At Act!vate, our mission is to change the trajectory of aging. Our membership-based revenue model includes a comprehensive and personalized program of brain and body training to enable Boomers to improve and extend their midlife years. This is achieved by creating brain and body health along with cognitive reserve, which have a profound impact on reversing or preventing obesity, diabetes, heart problems, and dementia. In so doing, we will reduce the economic healthcare burden on individuals and healthcare insurers. The existing fitness business does not serve nearly enough of the population and has not lived up to its potential, so we are reinventing this failed fitness business as Upstream Preventive Healthcare for the age 50+ population. Act!vate seeks $942K in capital. Contact SCP for information.

Ventus – Ventus evolved from many hours of working with the current in-building radio frequency (RF) design tools and experiencing the terrible workflow they cause. Hours of mind-numbing repetitious tasks that had nothing to do with designing, all the while saying “There’s got to be a better way.” When we asked others around the industry, we found the same frustrations everywhere. Ventus’ goal is to become the dominant force in the in-building wireless modeling area, bringing its Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) solution to market. Ventus is radically changing how carriers and value-added-resellers (VARs) and consultants perform RF designs for cellular, public safety and Wi-Fi solutions. Ventus removes the current road blocks and more than doubles the productivity of RF design engineers, saving time and cutting the cost per project by more than 50 percent. Ventus seeks $750K investment to be used for final product development and test.
