30MHz provides real-time remote crop monitoring on any device, so you get the full context: historical insight on what your crops have been experiencing, and live alerts to respond quickly to current conditions. From optimising irrigation and ventilation, to preventing disease or sunscald, improving pest management or predicting shelf life, 30MHz delivers the metrics that matter to agriculture and horticulture, on a single platform that makes sense.
We all love food, but while our population is growing, Earth’s natural resources for food are limited and strained by climate change, leading to the current increase of global hunger, undernutrition and food prices. Our mission is to accelerate the global transition to sustainable food by producing the best sustainable source of healthy food ingredients out of the most advanced organic cultivation systems, driven by nature’s power! Arborea’s team developed the world’s first “BioSolar Leaf” cultivation system which harnesses natural photosynthesis in a completely new way. Thanks to sunlight, It grows microscopic plants to produce healthy food ingredients while also generating breathable oxygen and sequestrating high amount of carbon dioxide (CO2), the major reason behind climate change.
Black Bear Carbon
Carbon black is a form of elemental carbon that is manufactured by the controlled vapour-phase pyrolysis and partial combustion of hydrocarbons. Several processes have been used to produce carbon black, including the oil-furnace, impingement (channel), lampblack, thermal (decomposition of natural gas) and acetylene (decomposition) processes.Carbon blacks are commonly referred to by the process or the source material from which they are made, e.g. furnace black, lampblack, thermal black, acetylene black and channel black. The different grades from the various processes have certain unique characteristics, but it is now possible to produce reasonable approximations of most of these grades using the oil-furnace process, by which more than 95% of the total output of carbon black is produced.
Incision was founded by Prof. Dr. Theo Wiggers and various other entrepreneurial professionals in 2014. Our highly driven team works in a fast-paced, scale-up environment with the main headquarters being in Amsterdam. Our staff consists of a mix of medical doctors and industry leaders in product, entrepreneurship and marketing.

Lingvist is committed to building the most efficient language learning tool for on the go learners. We believe in possibilities enabled by communication. We make a powerful, unique tool widely available, so that more people have the capacity to express and understand each other. The Lingvist prototype was created at CERN by one of our co-founders, employing the machine-learning algorithms that were used to discover the Higgs boson. The leader of Skype’s core technology team then joined as a co-founder and CTO to scale the product.
Litterati is a data science company empowering people to "crowdsource-clean" the planet. What started with one person picking up a single cigarette, has transformed into a global movement in 100+ countries. Our technology is used to develop behavioral insight, map problem areas, and mitigate future risk. From schools to scientists, environmental, organizations, brands and city governments, people are coming together for the greater good to create a litter-free world.
In 2013, our Chief Scientific Officer Professor Mark Post unveiled the world’s first cultured meat hamburger to a packed press conference in London. The burger was harvested directly from cow cells, rather than raising and slaughtering a whole animal. It was the result of years of research at Maastricht University, and cost €250,000 to make. The effort was funded by Sergey Brin, the co-founder of Google. Our motivation was to find a new method to make real meat to feed our fast-growing population in a sustainable, healthy and animal-friendly way. Following the success of the first hamburger, we created Mosa Meat to commercialise cultured meat (also known as clean meat, cultivated meat or cell-based meat) and bring it to plates everywhere.
