Euphoria Athena & Tyche startups has been selected as a new member of the World Alliance for Efficient Solutions, which has the ambition to bring “clean and profitable solutions to protect the environment“ globally. This ingenious and impactful foundation https://solarimpulse.com is an advocate for clean technologies.
The World Alliance for Efficient Solutions was created at the initiative of the Solar Impulse Foundation, following the success of the first solar flight around the globe accomplished by Bertrand Piccard and André Borschberg. “Today, thousands of solutions exist that can boost economic growth while preserving nature, but they are often hidden in start-ups or research labs. They remain unknown to decision makers and are not implemented at industry level. So few people realize that everyone can use them and how profitable they have become.”
Euphoria Athena & Tyche “Extraordinary Startups that Ordinary People could benefit from” http://euphoriainlife.com proud and thrilled to be a part of this inspirational journey ❣
Continuing to travel the globe 🌎 in search of extraordinary startups that ordinary people could benefit from.
The next stop is beautiful California, USA, that is notorious for it’s Silicon Valley region, the southern portion of the San Francisco Bay Area, the home of innovative minds and the world center of high tech startups.
Here is my list of the top 15 startups of California.
Rethink Robotics http://www.rethinkrobotics.com “SMARTER, COLLABORATIVE ROBOTS”, offering Sawyer and Baxter bots. Sawyer is “high performance collaborative robot for tasks requiring greater precision and payload, is now available for machine tending, electronic component manufacturing, packaging, and much more”. Baxter is “The world’s first dual arm collaborative robot, Baxter is simple to train for repetitive production tasks such as discrete part handling, line loading, packing and unpacking, and many more applications.”
Cushion https://cushion.ai/ “Our bot has a black belt in fee negotiation. Expect refunds on fees like… ATM fees, credit card interest charges, monthly service fees, late fees, overdraft fees, account maintenance fees, minimum balance fees, wire transfer fees”. Get your money back by visiting this site and leaving your email in order to request invite and claim your spot on the waiting list.
SafeGraph https://www.safegraph.com/ is a data company. Here is a brief overview from CEO Auren Hoffman:
“Information should not be hoarded so that only a few can innovate. We need as many organizations as possible working to solve the challenges facing humanity. SafeGraph’s mission is to make the world’s data open for innovation while protecting individuals privacy. To provide truth sets to the world’s innovators, we need to meticulously record and archive the world’s facts and events. Our job is to find out what happened, when it happened, and where it happened. Data that isn’t true has little use. SafeGraph needs to independently verify the veracity of every data element. Of course, data can never be 100% true … but we should strive to make it 100% true.” I can think of many applications for this startup. Practically every startup I mentioned in this or previous publication could use and benefit from the information that is meticulously gathered and provided by SafeGraph. There are many applications for accurate data from SafeGraph, one of them is determining trend direction and another is creating one.
Occamzrazor https://www.occamzrazor.com/ funded by Michael J. Fox foundation for Parkinson’s Research.
“OccamzRazor is an AI-driven neuroscience therapeutics startup. Our product RAZOR consumes and analyzes a variety of biomedical datasets, constructing an exhaustive knowledge graph representing all known information about Parkinson’s disease. This graph is used to drive downstream therapeutic insight and strategic drug development.” With today’s technology I hope we find cure for Parkinson’s disease.
Tetra https://asktetra.com/ App that could be downloaded on the App store. “Tetra uses AI to take notes on phone calls, to help you focus, remember the details, and keep your team in sync.
$9 per month for 5 hours call time per month, other plans available.
Marble https://www.marble.io/ “Your Friendly Neighborhood Robot” so simple yet so impactful. About the company “We’re a fast-moving team based in San Francisco solving the enormous challenge of automating the transportation of goods. Our robots use a hybrid-autonomy system with people at the core of their operations. They use advanced sensors and high-resolution 3D city maps to efficiently and politely navigate busy urban environments. Our robots have swappable cargo bays to transport various types of goods – the best way to transport warm meals isn’t necessarily the best way to transport medicine.” Truly is “paradigm shift of our generation”.
The tech startup Bodega https://bodega.ai/
“At Bodega, we’re combining the convenience of online ordering with the instant gratification of real world retail. We’re building hardware, software and supply chain operations to create delightful automated stores that are only a few feet away and always stocked with what you need.”
“A tech startup called Bodega that hopes to replace mom-and-pop shops with unmanned boxes that rely on an app and artificial intelligence is facing a massive backlash from immigrant business owners and skeptics across Sillicon Valley. ..company’s executives have been widely mocked, and criticized for explicitly stating that their mission is to displace neighborhood corner stores and put family-owned shops out of business.” (source https://www.theguardian.com). Great startup concept of the future, whereas mom-and-pop shops is today and not going anywhere for the next few decades at least, also cater to a different generation and certainly not under a threat of this new emerging startup.
Luminance https://www.luminance.com/ is London based startup that gave rise to many new revolutionary startups sharing the same concept of artificial intelligence platform for the legal profession. LegalRobot https://www.legalrobot.com/ AI for Law startup that helps you understand legal language. The software reads the legal document and offers advice on how to approach any given situation.
“5G, WiGig, IoT, 4K video will drive the massive wireless data consumption of tomorrow. Carbonics is grasping the future and creating RF semiconductor solutions with higher frequency, more efficiency and greater linearity attributes for smarter mobile and wireless solutions. Our solution embraces 100% CMOS compatibility towards a CMOS plus Carbon single wireless chip solution.”
MAX BioPharma http://www.maxbiopharma.com/ “MAX BioPharma is a California-based biotechnology firm developing novel small molecule lipids, referred to as oxysterols, as candidates for therapeutic drugs for debilitating and fatal human diseases. These oxysterol molecules belong to the family of sterols that have the ability to stimulate bone growth, block the growth of cancer cells, and inhibit their ability to metastasize. The company is a pioneer in this new field of Oxysterol Therapeutics® and focused on translating our key science into use for two large unmet medical needs: bone formation (in fracture repair, bone tissue engineering, and osteoporosis) and cancer.”
“A disrupted or imbalanced microbial ecology due to disease or broad-spectrum antibiotic use can result in negative clinical consequences and prolonged debilitating infections. Recent understandings of the human microbiome have illustrated the importance of a healthy and balanced microbial ecosystem and the link to improvements in human disease outcomes and disease risk. Specifically Targeted Antimicrobial Peptides, or STAMPs, are designed by first identifying targeting domains in bacterial genomes using genomic mining techniques. An antimicrobial peptide is then linked to the targeting domain allowing us to specifically direct the antimicrobial activity to a pathogen or group of pathogens of choice within a microbial community. The proprietary platform technology allows the STAMP to effectively reengineer the microbiota by selectively killing the targeted pathogen while sparing the remaining healthy microorganisms within the indigenous microflora. This targeted approach represents an enormous improvement over broad-spectrum antibiotics that indiscriminately kill both beneficial and pathogenic bacteria. Treatment with STAMPs results in biofilm communities that remain intact and “healthier” after treatment, and serve as a barrier to prevent reinfection.”
Rocco http://rocco.ai/ “Rocco learns the ins-and-outs of your business and brand voice. Rocco will suggest fresh content that your followers are likely to engage with. Spend less time coming up with content strategies and crafting social-media posts. Sit back and watch your engagement skyrocket. :)”
Rocco will analyze which campaigns have the best reach, engagement and shares. Check out their monthly plans.
Nanotech Energy https://www.nanotechenergy.com/
“Imagine a world where charging your smart phone, laptop, power tools, medical devices or even electric cars happened in just a few minutes with an energy storage system that runs three times longer than traditional batteries on a single charge. Hyped as the material of tomorrow, Graphene is the future of today in all of Nanotech Energy products. We are leading the charge to turn graphene and other nano materials into safer and more powerful products with our Graphene, Graphene Oxide and Graphene SUPERbattery solutions.”
Calimmune http://www.calimmune.com “Calimmune is accelerating the promise of gene therapy to liberate patients from chronic and currently incurable diseases.” About gene therapy: “Our gene therapy process works by genetically modifying patients’ own cells to shield and strengthen their immune system. The promise of this approach is to create enduring and perhaps life-long protection for individuals living with a broad range of debilitating and currently incurable diseases.”
This sums it up for my list of top 15 California startups.

Once you’ve invested, your money is entered into the next fortnightly cycle to buy shares in your chosen property portfolio. Before investment, it’s held securely in a segregated account at a major UK high street bank. Your investment is spread across the properties in your chosen portfolios. You now own a slice of expertly chosen homes. Your investment will reflect the change in property prices and the rental income these homes generate. The value of your shares will change after every fortnightly investment cycle, which will be shown on your dashboard. Rental income is automatically reflected in the value of your shares. You can choose to receive this income quarterly as a dividend, or reinvest into property, compounding your returns. As more people invest in the funds, money is used to buy more properties. As the portfolios grow, your investment is automatically spread across each property added to the fund. Properties and tenants are managed on your behalf, in conjunction with our partner Touchstone. We are committed to providing tenants with an excellent renting experience. Submit a request to withdraw at anytime online via your dashboard. We do not lock you in to a minimum investment period, and there are no withdrawal fees”.
LFA http://www.thelondonfashionagency.com/ Modern approach to PR at affordable prices. Startup founder Rosie Davies business motto: “Being all things to all people is a recipe for mediocrity.”
“Ready to cut your monthly PR spend but still get great results?
LFA online coverage “LFA’s brands were featured online countless times in 2017 in publications like Emerald Street, The Pool, Evening Standard and The Independent, increasing our client’s website traffic by 200%”. Printed coverage “We gained over 250 pieces of print coverage for our brands in 2017 in some of the UK’s best publications. Our brands were featured in Red, Woman & Home, The Guardian, Stella, YOU Mag, Sunday Times Style, ES Mag, Stylist and more”. Influencer coverage “2017 was the year of Instagram, and we worked with over 100 influencers including @dresslikeamum, @mother_of_daughters, @eimearvarianbarry, @kavitacola, to name a few”. Great and innovative startup that changed the concept of PR. The website is amazing, the concept is of the future and story of success behind it is inspiring because the founder of this startup struggled with severe dyslexia from an early age (https://startups.co.uk source). Davies is also a founder of PRdispatch.
At https://prdispatch.com you will learn how to do your own PR, 39 pounds per month and you will get top UK press contacts. If you are selling products online, PR dispatch is for you. From the founder “In 2011 I was first introduced to PR through an internship at an independent brand. With no budget, contacts or previous training, I quickly achieved magazine coverage. Great product and understanding publications was key. I was shocked to find out that traditional PR retainers started at £3,000 p/m.
2 years later I founded the multi award-winning London Fashion Agency. To date, our team has gained over 600 pieces of magazine coverage for independent brands with our affordable approach to PR.
Now, through PR Dispatch, we are giving independent brands everything they need to maximise their chances of press coverage from £39p/m.
I know that brands can sell their product better than anyone else, so why not sell it to magazine editors and spend the thousands you would have spent with an agency somewhere else. I believe this is the future of gaining magazine coverage.”
– Rosie Davies,
Founder of PR Dispatch & The London Fashion Agency

Stay tuned, the next stop on the globe of top startups is California, USA 🇺🇸 on http://euphoriainlife.com Euphoria Athena & Tyche is the best start for startups globally.
I will travel the globe 🌍 virtually and physically to bring the most interesting startups to you. Some are funded by investors and already making a significant impact and some are “under radar” startups at the beginning stages with a big idea and business plan to bring it live. It’s an informative and entertaining read to gain an awareness of new and innovative technologies out there, it’s an idea for someone to start their own startup and a wealth of information for investors around the world.
Here is the list of the top 15 startups of Switzerland. There is no particular order of countries of startups.
Solarimpulse foundation https://www.solarimpulse.com that built an airplane powered only by the sun is introducing “1000 Solutions to change the world” by joining World Alliance for Efficient Solutions in order to improve quality of life on earth.
“We need to embrace clean technologies and efficient solutions, because they are much more than ‘ecological’ , they are ‘logical’. They create jobs and generate profit, while also reducing CO2 emissions and preserving natural resources. Even if climate change didn’t exist, they would make sense. Clean growth is much better than the dirty status quo we have today.”
Hulbee.com new business search engine. “Hulbee.com is the first intelligent answer engine because it is based on semantic information recognition and offers users intuitive help in their search for answers”. One of a kind anonymous search engine.
Demiurge Technologies http://www.demiurge.technology/
A Switzerland-based artificial intelligence startup developing the next generation of artificial neural networks and brain chips for mobile robots.
“Daring minds” they call themselves. Daring minds indeed:
“ Demiurge is not a good place for hedgers playing safe above anything else, followers swimming with the tide of collectivism, gamblers favoring blind hunches, gossipers living upon hearsay, or sentimentalists indulging unaccountable feelings”. Great all around: technological aspect and attitude.
MemoMab http://memomab.com/ “platform creates a recombinant in vitro copy of an individual’s B cell / antibody repertoire, which is then banked as a library. The resulting unique, large and relevant antibody libraries represent the individual’s immune repertoire and are expected to contain an unprecedented number of relevant and rare antibodies. This leads to entirely new possibilities in immune repertoire analysis and antibody discovery”. Potential discovery of vaccines to prevent cancer and other terminally ill diseases making it the startup of the future.
Bone surgery reinvented by AOT (Advanced Osteotomy Tools) by inventing Carlo system (Cold Ablation Robot-guided Laser Osteotome) that can cut bone with the laser and cold laser technology. http://aot.swiss/en/
“50 years of research on medical laser technologies have achieved impressive results, especially in dermatology and ophthalmology. Until now, however, no solution had been found in the field of orthopaedic surgery to the problem of keeping bone tissue vital and intact at the site of the laser incision. This has now been achieved by AOT AG with the ground-breaking invention of the CARLO® system (Cold Ablation Robot-guided Laser Osteotome). This system allows for the direct collaboration of man and machine by means of a small, lightweight, and custom-designed tactile robotic arm, as well as navigation and control software and its corresponding hardware. All of these elements are combined in an ergonomic system, which fits easily into the operating room and allows the surgeon full control over this universal osteotomy device at any time. CARLO® is thus the world’s first medical, tactile robot that can cut bone without contact and with cold laser technology. The device allows the surgeon to perform bone operations with unprecedented precision, and in freely-defined, curved and functional sectional configurations, which are not achievable with conventional instruments.”
The first weeding robot http://www.ecorobotix.com/en/ that
will reduce herbicide by 20x “Thanks to the precise detection and discriminating spraying of weeds”.
“Works up to 12 hours a day without a human operator – solar powered, no rechargeable batteries”.
“Lightweight – 130 kg design minimises soil compaction – reliable, robust and non-hazardous”.
Great startup to help prevent what scientists predict to be an unprecedented famine in years to come.
Another startup to prevent a probability of future famine occurrence is Gamaya https://gamaya.com/ by using AI. “Gamaya improves efficiency and sustainability of farming businesses by offering compelling agronomy solutions, enabled by hyperspectral imaging and artificial intelligence”.
Next generation therapy that will treat diseases in Ophthalmology and Oncology https://www.molecularpartners.com/
“Molecular Partners has a strong focus on creating differentiated therapies for retinal diseases including wet age-related macular degeneration (wet AMD) and diabetic macular edema (DME), two diseases leading to loss of vision.
While protein therapies such as antibodies and natural proteins have changed medicine, they are usually designed to treat only one disease target. In contrast, multi-benefit DARPin® therapeutics function as a team. Instead of just one treatment for a complex disease, we can bring together multiple small proteins with high specificity and potency to inhibit multiple disease-specific targets in a single medicine. These characteristics make DARPin® proteins ideal agonistic, antagonistic or inhibitory drug candidates”.
The technology – “DARPins® therapeutics are a new class of small protein therapeutic agents derived from natural ankyrin repeat proteins, one of the most common binding proteins in nature and responsible for diverse functions, such as cell signaling and receptor binding.
Our DARPin® therapies are built around our mono-DARPin® proteins, which are robust and potent proteins that bind to a single specific target. DARPin® proteins can treat a single validated disease pathway (mono-DARPin® therapy) or efficiently combine two or more mono-DARPin® proteins to form multi-DARPin® proteins that bind to multiple targets (or multiple epitopes/sites on a single target) without changing the fundamental attributes of the mono-DARPin® protein”
https://www.sonarsource.com/ offers unique approach to code quality “Manage it as a water leak, fix the leak before you mop the floor!”
The company offers SonarQube
“Automatic code review tool to detect bugs, code smells and vulnerability issues. Easy to integrate with DevOps toolchains”.

a natural matrix (fibrin) to allow for the natural healing process to proceed, with
-a potent, targeted biologic (“PTH”) to augment the healing response; and
-a structural ceramic component to provide mechanical stability during the healing process.
Detectors Arktis https://www.arktis-detectors.com/ designed detection systems “Arktis designs and manufactures advanced integrated detection systems that detect and categorize radiological and nuclear materials with an unprecedented level of accuracy”.
Track your cycle with Ava bracelet https://www.avawomen.com/ “Wear the Ava bracelet at night for effortless insight about your fertility, pregnancy, and your health”. Cycle is tracked by using 9 physiological parameters:
Resting pulse rate
Heart rate variability ratio
Kandou https://www.kandou.com/ “KANDOU specializes in the design of high-speed, and pin- and energy-efficient chip-to-chip links, SerDes, and associated technologies.
Demand for bandwidth in serial links has increased as industries require both high-quantity and high-quality information. KANDOU BUS has developed a unique approach to serial link design that increases the bit-rate and the reach for a given physical communications link and reduces the power consumption. As a result, more bits can be sent per unit of energy, or less energy can be used to achieve a given bit rate.
Less energy means available power can be used for more speed, greater battery life, smaller dies or novel designs that shatter many of today’s constraint”.
Innovative technology by Flisom, designers of solar panels https://flisom.com/ Their vision is to unable solar energy in ways not possible before. “We are working to make this a reality. Today, most of the world still relies on heavy and rigid silicon-based modules, encapsulated in glass – standard 60-cell and 72-cell module design. Our flexible and lightweight panel technology platform is built from the very beginning with the widest application possibilities in mind”.
Skioo https://www.skioo.ch/en/ let’s you access more than 45 ski resorts and “Finally, you can make the most of what the Swiss Alps have to offer!”

Next are startups of UK, stay tuned on http://euphoriainlife.com Euphoria Athena & Tyche is the best start for startups globally.
2017 was a year full of new, exciting, innovative and happening events from inauguration of newly elected or re-elected heads of government around the world to scientists revealing oldest human ancestor, from UK leaving European Union to Black Sabbath playing their last concert, from Quantum Communications to a new discovery in astronomy of first time studying light and gravitational waves from neutron star collision and for it to be the base of many more new discoveries in astronomy, from Oscar and Grammy Winners to FIFA Confederations Cup, from Solar Eclipse to Nobel Prize Winners, from first successful gene editing in human embryos to “Deposito” the most streamed song ever.
The year was also full of tragic events. Natural disasters as earthquakes, hurricanes, famine, wildfires and unnatural disasters as terror attacks brutally took the lives of so many that no words could describe the pain, the sadness and the void those disasters and tragedies brought to grieving families.
I hope 2018 will bring peace to those families and to all around the world.
Here are the significant events of the past year.
-Inauguration of Donald J. Trump as the 45th President of the United States of America and Mike Pence as the 48th Vice President.
-Angela Merkel is heading for a fourth term as Germany’s chancellor.
-Emmanuel Macron party wins as he becomes New French President.
-Carrie Lam is first woman elected to lead Hong Kong by Beijing-influenced electorial commission
-Jacinda Ardern is the New Zealand’ s New Prime Minister, she is the worlds youngest female head of government.
-British MPs vote in favour of the European Union Bill, allowing the government to begin Brexit, leaving European Union.
-Scientists in central China reveal oldest known human ancestor – 540-million-year-old. Perhaps our ancestors are older than we think.
-Heavy metal band Black Sabbath play their last concert in their home town Birmingham, England
-Saudi Arabia announces it is overturning its ban on women driving
-French fashion house Givenchy appoints it first female designer, Englishwoman Clare Waight Keller
-Quantum communications. “researchers from the Chinese Academy of Sciences announced the satellite had successfully distributed entangled photons between three different terrestrial base stations, separated by as much as 1,200 kilometers on the ground. The result is the longest entanglement ever demonstrated, and the first that spanned between the Earth and space. Researchers say the system “opens up a new avenue to both practical quantum communications and fundamental quantum optics experiments at distances previously inaccessible on the ground.” Source https://www.theverge.com/2017/6/15/15808436/china-satellite-quanwtum-network-encryption-entanglement-micius
– “On October 16th astronomers announced that the LIGO and Virgo gravitational-wave detectors had “heard” the brief signal of a neutron star collision. But that wasn’t all.

December is a beautiful time of the year. Festive atmosphere all around us. Chanukah lights and Christmas lights, Santa 🎅 and Christmas tree are all exciting and special.

I think I will turn to video bloggers on YouTube for inspiration and ideas.
A great video blogger or great YouTube channel is similar to picking out an interesting book whose author either full of great ideas or simply entertaining or combination of the two. I will share my pick with you.
