These ventures have been with Accelerate Cambridge for over three months and are either looking to finalise their product or close their first sales.

Babihub

Babihub has developed wearable technology to encourage toddlers to learn through active play. The early years is a pivotal part of growth in a child’s development and it’s crucial that children develop positive behaviour habits around being physically active, exploring their environment and socially engaging with other children. Despite this importance, young children are becoming more inactive with research showing that nine in 10 children aged between two and four years not meeting requirements set by the chief medical officer for physical activity per day. Added to this, further research indicates that one in five children are already overweight by pre-school. Unfortunately, current uses of technology are contributing to this, resulting in children spending large parts of their day in a sedentary position. Babihub believes that technology is encapsulating and can be used in a different more positive way to encourage young children to learn through active play. Babihub’s wearable and smart connected devices create playful digital interactions that encourage children to learn through being active and exploring. Babihub’s wearable and smart connected devices will initially be sold into nurseries as a tool that enables the nursery to efficiently monitor physical activity and location of play. Detailed insights into each child's behaviour will enable the nurseries to quickly develop personalised learning plans for each child. Beyond monitoring, our products will also act as a digital tool for nurseries and parents to encourage the children to learn through exploring.

Canard Influencers

Canard Influencers is a self-service platform connecting creative micro-influencers to brands. Our objective is to turn every micro-influencers into superstars and allow brands to activate thousands of handpicked influencers, reaching millions around the world, at minimal cost. We recognise the unique phenomenon of promotion through targeted social media creators and micro-influencers. Influencers directly engage followers and audiences through their creativity which builds a unique relationship based on trust and admiration. Seeing the gap on the influencer marketing scene for a platform connecting highly creative individuals to brands that privilege quality over quantity, Canard Influencers is born. Micro-influencers (audience with more than 150k followers) have more targeted audience and enable brands to benefit from higher engagement and impact as those content creators tend to be closer to their audience than traditional influencers.

Citrecycle

Citrecycle has adapted new technology that unlocks the full potential of the lead-acid batteries (LAB) recycling industry in developing countries whilst simultaneously maintaining focus on development objectives. Citrecycle uses hydro metallurgy to recycle LAB in a safe, clean and sustainable way. We will utilise local independent co-operatives to collect the supply for recycling. Our ability to extract more value from each battery enables us to buy batteries at greater value than that that can be obtained from informal recycling. We can double the amount paid per battery, and still remain profitable, to ensure Citrecycle can absorb the informal recycling sector. Our process then recycles the batteries cleanly, using a Carbon neutral process. Hydro metallurgy inherently restricts poisonous emissions, slashes direct and indirect CO2 and operates profitably at smaller scales, 1000 tons per year rather than 50,000 - the size at which adequate pollution controls are considered to be cost effective. The scalable nature means that small, community directed plants will not replace the informal recyclers industry, but empower local communities by providing a cleaner and safer way to make money through localised employment. The replacement of informal LAB recycling practices with a safe provision that does not involve dangerous emissions, eradicates exposure of local communities and the environment to lead contamination, eliminating the risk of lead poisoning. The need for strong infrastructure for mass collection is overcome, sound legislation is unnecessary to regulate safety and exposure of local communities and the environment to lead contamination is prevented. Pollution, lead poisoning and fatality are replaced by job opportunities, prosperity, cleanliness and health.

Heterogeneous

Researchers want dynamic medical and genetic data and people want to participate more directly in research. We have built the heterogeneous platform to allow individuals with genetic data (e.g. from 23andMe) to create a profile and participate directly in ongoing research projects, controlling when and how their data is shared and used. At the same time, we are working directly with rare disease patients and researchers to generate, store, analyze, and share dynamic medical and genetic data used in research and healthcare. We believe that creating a secure, patient-centric marketplace for genetic data will make it easier to conduct genetics research and follow-up studies not only in healthcare, but for a wide variety of organisations.

Hinton Bikes

Hinton Bikes is developing a new electric bike that is designed from the ground up to make it convenient for more people to cycle in our increasingly congested and polluted cities. It folds down small enough to take on a train, is light enough to carry upstairs, and is smart enough to tell you when to pump up your tyres. When you get home, simply drop it into its dock for charging. Our mission is to make riding a bike more convenient and reliable than driving a car so that we can get more people cycling in our cities.

nūfood

Our multidisciplinary team has been hard at work for the past two years perfecting nūfood: a kitchen robot which enables foodies and creative chefs to 3D print 'flavour bursts'; intense taste sensations to accompany any meal or cocktail on demand. Used in conjunction with pre-mixed sauces the product offers endless possibilities for shape, flavour and texture. Sweet and savoury ‘flavour bursts’ are designed with our easy to use mobile app and printed in a few short minutes. Currently the star of unique pop-up dining events across Europe, we look forward to introducing the possibilities of nūfood to a wider audience.
