Who are our 6 incubatees?

Talk-Now (Novus)

Talk-Now wants to improve the daily life of deaf people. Indeed, deaf people can understand hearing people by reading on the lips; while hearing people usually do not speak any sign language. There is a one-way communication problem.

They developed smart gloves that translate sign language into text and speech in real-time. The product uses sensors to capture hand movements and recognise the meaning. Then, the data is transferred to the smartphone into text and speech.

Chears Technology

Chears Technology turns your smartphone and regular earphones into a hearing aid.

It aims at improving the communication between hearing-impaired people and the hearing society. By changing the hearing aid in an affordable, fashionable and innovative way, they developed an intelligent hearing aid based on smartphone and headset to help hearing-impaired people get a better hearing experience!

Their motto? "We Cheer People to Hear!"

It is EASY to use, FREE today and EFFICIENT!

Sit & Shower

Sit and Shower aims to prevent a premature loss of independence by tackling its #1 cause: falling - and in particular falls in the bathroom (which account for 80% of all falls). They want to empower seniors to bathe safely, independently and with more dignity. Also, they strive to control water temperature to minimize thermal shock - a leading cause of fainting and cardiac arrest while bathing.

This safer, more independent bathing solution comes as a seated wheelchair that can transform your regular toilet into a "surround" seated, shower unit with everything safely in reach!

You did not know that elderly bathing could be unsafe? WELL IT IS!

FoodCycle+

3200 tonnes of food waste are sent to landfills every day! FoodCycle+'s mission is to raise awareness on food waste and reduce it in Hong Kong through their sustainable farming and upcycling activities. By using an advanced biotechnology, they convert food waste into compost, animal feed and edible mushroom!

They want every people to return organic resources back to the ecosystem instead of dumping them into landfills. To learn more about them, it's here!

uHoo

uHoo is a platform that provides people with personalized insights on the air they breathe to help them save energy and create healthier indoor spaces.

Indoor air quality is a major cause of health ailments, decrease in productivity and sick days at work. They started uHoo because they want to help people live healthier through prevention and better habits, enhance building and property management and eventually influence health and sustainability policies with real-time information.

MyDrCoach

Traditional homework tutoring center is expensive and serves in fixed duration. That's why MyDrCoach developed a low cost and easily accessible solution for the hectic homework in primary school.

The process is simple: the student sends a picture of the homework to MyDrCoach and within a few minutes, they match the student with a teacher ready to help! This allows MyDrCoach to meet much more needs than traditional businesses.

Their motto? “Equalizing learning opportunity”.

"Every student should be assessed by projects and be working like in a mini start-up. They should focus on how to solve problems in a new way"​ Dean & Robin

Dean & Robin - Co-Founders of MyDrCoach - gave us their insights on education in HK and shared their 2-year long entrepreneurial adventure in an exciting interview!
