Booth 18NVC/ANVCunitxlabs.comWe are a group of Stanford engieners (ex Google/ex Apple/Booth and HBS grads) using AI-enabled solutions to enhnace automotive/EV safety through automated surface defects inspection, a task that is currently done by human in most of the factories in the world.

Founded in 2018, UnitX (www.unitxlabs.com) commercialized deep learning vision system out of the Stanford Robotics Labs. Our propriatary imaging and AI computing system is automating a task that has no prior solutions. Our state of art deep learning module, CorteX, is designed to automate defect detection with a very small data sample. (a defect can be trained after 5 defect samples.). Our imaging module, OptiX, is designed to improve machine vision accuracy and efficiency. Our solution is deployed to solve problems that existing market solutions such as Cognex and Keyence weren't able to solve.

As proof of concept, we have a deployed turnkey system at a Tier 2 manufacturing house, inspecting 20,000 parts per day with 500X improvement on defect detection. We have recently ramped up our go-to-market strategy, and have gotten interested in OEMs such as Ford and GM. Our client also includes the world's second-largest automotive supplier, and lithium ion battery startups.
AI/Robitcs/ Manufacutring/ Automotive/ EVWe are looking for teammates who are passioante about cutting edge technologies. On the business side, we are looking for teammate with a finance background (i.e. IB/PE/VC) to help us with a wide range of fundrasing efforts. On the product side, we are looking for software engieners to help us enhance product growth. We hope as we build working relationship, we can participate in the NVC/ANVC down the road.please connect me directly: trista@unitxlabs.com

Gaurav Singhalgsinghal@chicagobooth.eduBooth'21NVCWe are building a liability management company that manages the liabilities of insurance companies similar to the way outside asset managers manage the assets of insurance companies and pension funds. Liability management is typically done by buying derivatives contracts that offset the market risk emanating from the insurance contracts. Within the overall insurance industry, we focus on liability management for indexed annuities. Annuities are a very large and fast growing market, and efficient liability management is key to the profitability and growth of the firm. At our firm, we aim to bring expertise in quantitative finance, derivative pricing, advanced algorithmic trading, statistical machine learning and high performance computing to create highly scalable hedging solutions for annuity companies.Fintech / InsuranceCore Infrastructure: Experience in a programming language such as R, and databases. Prior experience in quantitiative finance or data science is not required but would be helpful.

Customer Research and Product Development: We have a great opportunity to practise and drive primary market research, product development, go-to-market strategy and other key steps of building a company.

Carson Wangcarson@findyourhang.appUIUC'21CNVChttps://findyourhang.app/-The app for spontaneous group activities near you; the app for spontaneous fun
-Disrupts social networking
-Users list activities and people nearby can browse and join them
-NO profiles to swipe; users are defined by more than their profiles
-Combats the lack of genuine social interaction by focusing on spontaneous, real-life social activities; real social interaction with *new* friends
-A faster way to arrange fun outings; brings the speed and ease of social networking to having fun and social connections
-All users are guaranteed to already be halfway down the marketing funnel (being both local and interested), so Hang offers a unique opportunity for local merchant advertising
Mobile/Geosocial networking-UChicago team member
-Especially interested in a business team member, preferably with skills in market research, customer discovery, and usability testing

Luke Iidalukeniida@gmail.comUChicago '19NVCSesame is building Fitbit for the $1 billion mindfulness community. Sesame is a minimalist, tech-infused bracelet that promotes mindfulness and connection in our day-to-day lives. Through a series of customizable haptic sensations delivered to you throughout the day, Sesame reminds you to take a breath, reflect on an intention, and be grateful in your life. By syncing your mindful moments with friends, family, and the larger Sesame community, Sesame allows you to feel connected to people through a more immediate medium, while avoiding the distraction involved with using a phone. Many of the notifications in our lives serve as a source of distraction. With Sesame, we created a notification that helps you stay engaged, mindful, and present.

Progress:
-Working with SF-based New Deal Design (Indutrial design firm behind Fitbit), where we are developing a first gen product and brand by October
-Have raised $150k in early-stage seed funding, with the goal of raising $700k by early 2021
- In conversation with United airlines and Mondelex International about buying our product
- (fun fact) I won the 2020 CNVC with my former company, Subli!
Mindfulness/Health
Wearables
- A fullstack App/Web Developer intersted in our mission!
