Bricklane.com https://bricklane.com Earn returns from your investment in rental income and capital growth. “Bricklane.com is an online investment platform enabling everyone to invest in expertly chosen property portfolios, from £100. 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

The future belongs to daring and innovative minds ❣

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.

Startups of Switzerland

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 in different industries and some are “under radar” startups at the beginning stages with a big idea and business plan to bring it live. Euphoria Athena & Tyche is showcasing eco friendly new age startups, gathering the most innovative & brilliant entrepreneurs, high technology and eco friendly solution that “can protect the environment in a profitable way” (B. Piccard), targeting all groups of people to be beneficiaries of this solution.

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.”

BERTRAND PICCARD

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”.

Code Analyzers will “Find the trickiest and nastiest bugs and quality issues, using the most advanced techniques of static code analysis such as symbolic execution and data flow analysis.. on 20 programming languages”. Different plans are available including free and open source platform.

Kuros Biosciences http://www.kuros.ch/ Innovation in bone healing and tissue repair by introducing KUR-111 “KUR-111 is a product candidate that has been specifically designed as a bone graft that safely and effectively regenerates bone, without having to resort to a harvesting procedure.”
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”.

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!”

In preparations for the Holidays

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. During this time of the year, especially, I like to find interesting tips on holiday outfits, new food recipes for a family and friends get together, gift ideas that are simple and beautiful, DIY or where to buy. 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.

Makeup from everyday to glamorous

To create a glamorous look, I applied Anastasia Dipbrow Pomade https://www.anastasiabeverlyhills.com in Chocolate color on my lower eyelids. I liked the waterproof consistency and used it on my eye lids. For a glamorous, dark smoky eye look, I applied the eye shadow a second time. It did not go on evenly due to creamy (semi-liquid) consistency, some parts of the lower eye lid looked little lighter than the rest. To smooth out the look, I went over with the powder eye shadow in natural brown, from my shadow pallet UCANBE https://www.aliexpress.com/store/product/After that my favorite part – I used black liquid eye liner and extended the line a little, to add to my glamorous look. I used Sephora liquid eye liner and then black mascara. I used Anastasia Dipbrow Pomade to darken my eye brows. I used Mac studio fix powder https://www.maccosmetics.com/ in NC25 to even out my face color. Tarte tarteist https://tartecosmetics.com Pro Glow To Go bronzer to add some warm color to my glamorous look. To finish up the look, I used Urban Decay  https://www.urbandecay.com lipstick in Trick metallized. I liked smoky, dark makeup on my eyes, except my eye brows looked bit “too much” for me, I think I overdone it.  Little bit of highlighter from my shadow pallet to lighten up my eyebrow color, and I am ready – glamorous holiday look.

“Knowledge is power but beauty will save the world”  Be beautiful because you are ❣️❣️❣️

Startups that will change the world

There are many big and small, known and unknown but nevertheless extremely talented startups. Startups with great innovative ideas and discoveries are giving us a glimpse into the future. Out of many extremely talented startups, some are here to stay and contribute to humanity and shape our future. Where cancer is a thing of a past and treated easily, 3D organs are printed and used to replace organs that have failed, thus extending people’s lifespan and adding quality to people’s lives by minimizing and even eliminating most sicknesses, disabilities and disorders. Ability to help the sick by three dimensionally printing organs and implanting them or growing stem cells will change the world the way we know it. Our future is extremely high tech and robots will become an integral part of our lives as helpers, and friends with customized software to one’s liking. Flying cars will be our regular mode of transportation. And since the lifespan of humans will increase by at least few decades, overpopulated society of earth will have to find life on other planets.

Here are the 6 startups I chose:

To start with is a startup to cure cancer, we are long overdue for this one. In the near future cancer will easily be treated. I particularly liked the Israeli startup of Bar-Ilan University in Ramat Gan, prof. Nir.

The enzyme that was found in cancer cells is the same enzyme found in sperm cell. Nir and his team identified an enzyme called FerT in the energy-generating mitochondria of metastatic cancer cells. Nir’s lab developed a synthetic compound, E260 (which can be administered orally or by injection), to bind with enzyme (that enabled cancer cells to metastasize) and completely destroy cancer cells with no adverse affects and normal cells are not affected. Here is a link to a full article: https://www.israel21c.org/new-compound-kills-cancer-cells-energy-generating-system/

3D organ printing startups next on the list:

First startup is Japanese Cyfuse https://www.cyfusebio.com/en/ that uses Innovative “Micro Needle Array “Technology that enabled 3D Tissue Fabrication with Cell only. Their Regenova, bioprinter, successfully printed blood vessel, beating heart tissue, implantable graft. Cyfuse “Scaffold-free 3D bio-printed human liver tissue stably maintains metabolic functions useful for drug discovery” was published in Biochemistry and Biophysics Reports, in press.

San Francisco-based startup Prellis, https://www.prellisbio.com working on building human organs using a unique 3D printing technology. “Using proprietary 3D laser-based printing, they can build microvasculature and additional layers of tissue with near instantaneous speeds and single-cell precision.”

Israeli bio med firm CollPlant https://www.collplant.com/ grows tobacco in greenhouses in order to produce ‘human’ collagen, which is used in the bio-ink that will eventually 3D-print tissues and organs.

Russia’s 3D Bioprinting solutions firm http://www.bioprinting.ru/en/ recently was successful at fabricating a mouse thyroid gland that implanted into a test subject – mouse. The company has a timeline in which they should develop a 3D printed kidney by 2018. “Their machine utilizes stem cells taken from a patient via their fat cells which are then mixed with hydrogels before being printed layer-by-layer. “

Robotic Industries startups.

“In the not-too-distant future, Genius Machines will walk among us. They will be smart, kind, and wise. Together, man and machine will create a better future for the world”, Hanson Robotics, US startup   http://www.hansonrobotics.com/

It’s not easy to imagine our future lives living with robots but it should be interesting.
Hanson Robotics is partnering with SingularityNET, http://www.singularitynet.io a platform for the decentralized AI (Artificial Intelligence) economy.

Hanson Robotics created robot Sophia to look as beautiful and as elegant as Audrey Hapburn. Sophia has done some interviews, here is her very first interview https://youtu.be/LguXfHKsa0c
