2Daniel JonesNomadA rideshare service where drivers keep 100% of the fares. Where Uber and Lyft take a nearly 50% commission on short rides, Nomad drivers are able to keep the entire fare, which leads to lower prices for riders and higher earnings for drivers. Instead, we monetize on car advertisements and car vending machines to make money. I started this idea in February, and we've had over 8,300 ride requests with 2,300 users and 65 drivers in its pilot phase. It's only on iOS currently. The goal is to figure out how to make transporation become free. Co-founders. Interested in the transportation/rideshare industry. I know how to code and do graphic design, so you don't need to be technical.daniel_jones@brown.edu

3Eli SilvertPathfinderA website that matches job types to a user’s background (uploaded via resume) and inputted interests. This would not just 1) demystify potential careers and 2) inspire long term goals, but it would also 3) visualize the overlap (and misfit) of the user and the job type’s ideal candidate, so the user gains insights into potential areas they can improve. Few companies recruit for students not studying CS or finance, especially for students at less known schools. As a result, it's hard for students to know what's out there, become inspired about a career, and take the right steps to work towards a job they will like. This website aims to help students explore career types, tell them how closely they resemble the ideal candidate, and could be monetized by 1) presenting student data to companies looking for young talent and/or 2) companies could pay to have specific job openings presented to ideal candidates.CS folks / co-founderseli_silvert@brown.edu

4John NicklasAirbender EnergyNovel green energy generation. Over the past half-century, worldwide green energy generation has fallen from 17% to 12.5%. We need to try something new (potentially floating offshore wind with dispatchable energy transport). I have patents for a vertical axis wind turbine and a solar concentrator.Co-founders (practical, humble partners) Engineers (mechanical, fluids, civil)john_nicklas@brown.edu

5Annie JacobTucTucTucTuc is a university-based pooling app that matches students traveling to the same destination. As of now, there is no UberPOOL feature in Rhode Island. TucTuc helps you save more than the pool fare on Uber, plus, you are paired with Brown and RISD students, not a total stranger. Eventually, TucTuc will have profiles set up for each user, so you know who you're riding withand make coversation easier. This Thanksgiving break, I released an MVP website that just stored the information, and I did all the matching by hand. With not much marketing preparation, got over 80 entries and made over 30 matches. Down the line, I am looking to build an app that would make the pooling process more easier for me and the consumer as well as expand to other destinations than just airports, such as concert venues, sports games, and supermarkets. After establishing a user base, I want to introduce a university carpooling feature that matches students with cars and students looking for a ride home and compete with companies like Zimride and Wheeli.

6Bella RobertsArt to Reduce Mental Health Stigma (ARMS) ARMS is a Rhode Island based nonprofit whose mission is to challenge the stigma surrounding mental illness using art as a forum for self-expression, healing, and dialogue. With a wide variety of events for everyone from professional artists to beginners, ARMS creates a space for individuals with mental illness to develop new work, share their experiences, and expand their audience. By welcoming allies, community members, and local organizations to engage with art and discussions of mental health, we hope to generate both individual and institutional progress in destigmatizing mental illness. Since our founding this September, we have reached over 1,000 people and 100% of the people who've attended our events said they would come back.
Data scientists to join our data science team. We also have openings on the following teams (of which you would work with others to collaborate and share responsibilities): Marketing, Finance, Event Planning. arms.at.brown@gmail.com
