ConveyIQ

Location: New York, NY

Sector: HR – Software.

ConveyIQ is a Recruitment Automation Platform that changes the way companies engage with top talent. The company’s mission is to build the most innovative products possible that enable employers to create remarkable hiring experiences at scale.

 

Leading companies in over 95 countries work with ConveyIQ to communicate and screen their applicants including Dentsu Aegis Network, NBCUniversal, Concentrix/Convergys, Equinox, Proscribe, Meredith Corporation, and The New York Times. Additionally, the Company has strategic partnerships and integrations with many of the world’s leading Applicant Tracking Systems such as Oracle, IBM, Workday, ADP, Greenhouse, and iCIMS.

 

ConveyIQ is used to streamline and standardize communication with candidates through recruitment automation technology, which saves recruiters significant time enabling them to spend more time sourcing candidates. The Company powers this smart communication via automated text messages, emails, digital interviewing, scheduling, chatbots, and polling.

1. Technologically sophisticated and powerful product that solves a myriad of pain points associated with Talent Acquisition –

ConveyIQ has brought the first Recruitment Automation Solution for post-apply communication to market. This Suite integrates seamlessly into the ATS, powering real-time and relevant communication to candidates via text message and email.

 

The technology’s defensibility is multi-faceted and underpinned by the complexity of its workflow engine, which interprets ATS data to personalize communication to candidates. The speed and depth of the integration with the ATS is powered by the Company’s proprietary middleware and connectors, through its Integration Services hub.

 

2. Software is for a market that is highly underserved by current solutions and recruiting is still highly manual, with over 90% of HR spend funding agencies and staff, not technology. These market conditions enable disruption to occur

The biggest opportunity for ConveyIQ is to help enterprise companies that hire a high volume of candidates streamline and automate their hiring processes. This lends itself to industries such as Retail, Hospitality, Manufacturing, Transportation, Call Centers, and Healthcare. Many of these organizations hire field workers who are hard to recruit.

 

Typically, these industries have been underserved by new technology, as most HRTech companies focus on solving pain points for Technology companies and the sourcing and screening of highly skilled workers, such as engineers. The pain of recruiting in a tight labor market and reaching people who are not using computers daily or on LinkedIn frequently, is a major opportunity to attract and retain these workers.

 

3. Very strong demand from the market and Average Contract Values currently averaging 3-4x the Company’s first product, Take the Interview, the digital interviewing product

Since the product’s Beta launch in February 2018, the Company has already generated $1M in bookings. Existing client contracts increased 2x – 9x. There is a strong overlap in the client base of the first product, Take the Interview, and Convey, but the Suite solution solves more pain points and is more integrated into the overall hiring process, which enables the company to see higher contract values and high retention over time.

1. Middleware that enables seamless connection to the Applicant Tracking System to extract data for personalized communication in real-time.

The platform integrates into existing Applicant Tracking Systems (ATS) the way in which Marketo or Hubspot would integrate into Salesforce or another CRM system. At each stage of the hiring process, the connectivity to the ATS tells the Convey platform what type of communication to send out and to which group of candidates. ConveyIQ’s engineering team built its own middleware and connectors to the most pervasive enterprise Applicant Tracking Systems in order to facilitate the simulation of communication in the process.

 

All the Applicant Tracking Systems that comprise approximately 80% of the ATS market share are supported and adding additional connectors for smaller ATS players is a relatively seamless process.

 

2. Experienced executive team with 50+ years, collectively, of relevant industry and operational Startup experience.

Danielle Weinblatt, the Founder & CEO, has been developing products for the HRTech industry since 2011. Her first product, Take the Interview, has powered the screening process for over 200 enterprises globally, which she started developing while getting her masters at Harvard.

 

COO, Larry Murff, has held both Operational and Financial executive roles at Bazaarvoice, Sprinklr, Quantcast and was the CFO of Expediter Services, an early stage transportation startup that scaled to $30M in revenue prior to a successful exit.

 

Andy Schafer was formerly the VP of Engineering at Createthegroup, a digital creative and ecommerce company, where he ran global engineering and before that, Avanade (sold to Accenture), where he ran the application development practice.

 

The SVP of Sales, Mark La Rosa was both the VP of Sales from Monetate and Panjiva, and laid the foundation for the success of the famous VC, David Rose’s company, Gust, as the VP of Sales and Business Development.

 

3. First-to-market with in-hiring process communication solution gives opportunity for thought leadership and market dominance

Other players in the market are focusing on automation pre-apply to attract candidates versus automating the arduous recruiting tasks for high-volume employers. Additionally, Convey also scales communication during the hiring process and is able to do so because of its integration with the ATS during the stages of the hiring process. This is true engagement and marketing automation post-apply vs. pre-apply and thus, can automate parts of the process typically not automated, such as screening and scheduling.

 

4. Advanced workflow engine powers personalized communication to candidates during the hiring process

ConveyIQ’s personalization engine determines the cohorts of candidates that the system must send communications to during the hiring process. Based on identifiers from the Applicant Tracking System (ATS), the system identifies the attributes that qualify what type of communication should be sent out, which language is best suited for the communication, when the communication should go out, and which medium is most appropriate.

 

It works similarly to the complex underpinnings of marketing automation systems such as Marketo and Hubspot, but is designed for recruiting professionals. The product provides templates for best practices in communicating with candidates that recruiters can utilize throughout the process.

 

5. Official Integration partnerships with Oracle, IBM, Workday, iCIMS, Greenhouse and the industry’s most pervasive Applicant Tracking Systems.

The connectivity of the Convey platform to the Applicant Tracking System is a critical part of its ability to deliver the solution to clients and actively personalize the communication. Partnerships with key players such as Oracle’s Talent Acquisition Cloud and Workday give ConveyIQ special access to APIs necessary for development and sandboxes that enable the Company to test its integrations without client involvement, providing a more seamless onboarding process.

Thrive Growing

Location: Calgary, Alberta

Sector: Cannabis.

Add to Shortlist
Express Interest

Thrive Growing will provide the most advanced cannabis growing technology to the industry. We will: License our Terrace Garden technology, sell equipment to build new and to retrofit existing cannabis facilities and provide management services to operate 3rd party facilities.

 

Via our Terrace Garden technology and CannaFactory production facility, Thrive Growing offers the most efficient growing system in the world (compared to industry-best published statistics from Aphria, May 2017):

  • Lowest operating cost: up to 2.5 times better (direct operating cost/gram produced) than industry average
  • Highest Yield: up to 770 gm (1.7 lb.) flower per square foot per year,
  • Expedited growing process produces 6 crops per year
  • Least amount of cultivation labor of any growing system
  • Saleable extract from roots unique to Thrive

1. Superior disruptive technology

Thrive Growing has patent-pending technology that deliver a much superior growing platform that both generates higher yields by a factor of 3 to 4 times and lowers operating costs relative to industry standards.

 

The result is a disruptive technology that Thrive Growing will continue to innovate for market dominance.

 

2.  Market timing

Thrive Growing is leveraging its market knowledge in Canada and the USA to demonstrate commercial ready technology in both countries simultaneously, thereby positioning the Company for rapid scale up.

 

Thrive’s experienced and industry-connected executive group makes this possible.

 

3.  Business model

Providing equipment at low cost for a significant royalty stream based on high yields and labour costs savings is a win-win for both the client and Thrive Growing, and will position us for aggressive market penetration.

1. Unique, patent pending, aeroponic terrace garden technology that increases space utilization by at least a factor of 2, with at least 6 crop cycles per year for most varieties of cannabis, which yield 3 times or more crop from the same space annually.

 

2. Single cola growing technique that only works on the terrace garden that decreases labor requirements for both growing & trimming

By growing single colas at various levels on a Terrace Garden, we overcome all the problems associated with conventional cannabis growing:

  • The growing of colas on the stepped levels of the Terrace Garden allows us to effectively apply both top & side lighting.
  • We use aeroponics, therefore we automatically have a cleaner environment with no risk of soil or soil-borne pathogens. Our facilities exceed FDA and other governmental standards.
  • We can maximize plant health and yields, since we are growing indoors under strict environmental controls(light intensity, spectrum and duration, temperature, humidity, water, carbon dioxide, air, nutrients).
  • We use photo-catalytic oxidation to actively remove both airborne and surface fungi and bacteria.
  • Each cola receives adequate airflow, which minimizes locally high humidity thereby reducing the risk of fungus infestation.
  • We normally can grow without pesticides because of our strictly controlled environment (unless the plant stock itself has an endogenous pathology such as powdery mildew).
  • We reduce labor to a minimum since there is little pruning required once the plant is established, unlike normal growing which typically requires at least one major pruning.
  • We substantially reduce fan leaves compared to normal growing and pruning methods.

 

3. Unique business model based on providing equipment at low or zero cost in return for a significant royalty stream from users

This business model does several things:

  • Essentially eliminates cost objections for our equipment to replace cheaper &/or paid for equipment with our high performance equipment
  • Increases our revenue stream by changing Thrive from being a supplier to becoming a partner

 

4.  Key differentiating factors

  • Highest growing density per square foot
  • Highest Yield per square foot: up to 770 gm (1.7 lb.) flower per square foot per year
  • Commercial scale equipment
  • Integrated system we call the CannaFactory
  • Lowest operating cost: up to 2.5 times better (direct operating cost/gram produced) than industry average
  • Least amount of cultivation labor of any growing system
  • Extract from roots unique to Thrive

Magnifi will be the first virtual co-working market network. Offering all the benefits of a physical co-working space in addition to its patented on-demand paid consultation tool, gig economy and knowledge workers can now connect with their clients, their community and the world by mobile device or desktop, anywhere, anytime.

Mobile-first approach

The usability and architecture of the Magnifi application is specifically designed to meet the exponentially growing mobile marketplace. Many of our competitors are centered around the desktop computer which has implications for poorer usability on mobile devices.

 

Peer-to-peer architecture

Peer-to-peer architecture leverages the capabilities inherent in the nodal nature of the Internet which in turn enables point to point streaming from handset to handset versus each audio or video stream being hosted by a third-party video vendor such as Twilio. Point to point or peer-to-peer streaming results in dramatically reduced bandwidth costs which are typically the highest variable costs in a business comprised primarily of streaming media and, video consultation.

 

Intellectual property

MindShare Technologies operating as Magnifi has been granted a patent for the billing of audio and video consultations in increments which means that it has specific rights attached to the way it creates and bills on-demand audio and video consultations.  This enables Magnifi to defend its business from a competitor using the same sort of methodology in addition to potentially litigating to prevent usage therein.

 

Mobile network in pocket

Magnifi provides a seamless mobile end-to-end solution that handles chat, video, and billing while offering a one-to one, personalized experience for knowledge workers and seekers to connect anytime and anywhere. Magnifi is a fully integrated marketplace in the pocket.

 

Affiliate program

ATI Airtest Technologies Inc.

Location: Delta, BC

Sector: Technology.

Add to Shortlist
Express Interest

AirTest offers sensors, controllers and wireless/IoT monitoring capability that contribute to comfort, safety and most of all energy efficiency of commercial buildings by providing feedback control to HVACR systems generally not available when buildings were originally constructed.

 

The Company also provides methods and energy analysis programs that can predetermine the level of energy savings and estimate the ROI prior to an AirTest system being installed which minimizes the risk to decision makers on proceeding with a project.

Experience

  • Airtest has been selling sensors to control parking garage ventilation for over 20 years.
  • With today’s products and latest technology our systems will save between 80% and 95% for a parking garage conversion where sensor control of the fans had not been used.
  • Mike Schell, our VP Marketing, has developed an energy analysis program for parking garages that enables Airtest to predict what energy savings will result from a conversion, and therefore estimate the ROI for the customer. Mike has also been instrumental in helping AirTest develop a state of the art system.
  • Before coming with Airtest some 15 years ago, Mike Schell was a co-founder of Demand Controlled Ventilation (DCV) using CO2 sensors to measure the number of people in a space and control heating and cooling based on real time occupancy. This has proven to be a huge energy saving process for variable occupancy commercial buildings as well as for schools and universities.
  • AirTest also has had strong long term performance from its lead engineer, plus 2 field sales personnel who can generate specifications for field projects to ensure each project will perform to maximum efficiency.

 

Knowledge

  • Airtest is a leader when it comes to specifying the best solution for all types of sensor controlled HVAC applications. Our technical sales and engineering people are strong and have all been with us for many years as we have had zero staff turnover in these areas for more than 10 years.
  • Between exhibiting at trade shows, providing articles for magazines related to controlling air quality and saving energy, and making personal presentations at educational forums, Airtest has made a significant contribution to others wishing to learn about energy efficiency in buildings.

 

Technology Advantage 

  • In the parking garage market, many of our competitors simply sell sensors to turn all the fans on or off depending on toxic gas levels in the garage. Airtest uses variable frequency drives to adjust the fan speed based on the level of toxic gases at the time. We run the fans at 25% to maintain a positive pressure in the garage at all times, which assures that toxic gases will not creep into the upper levels of the building, and fans running at 25% draw only 3% of the power compared to fans running at full speed.If toxic levels increase our system will increase fan speed as necessary, but rarely reach full speed due to the consistent low level fan activity.
  • In the very large DCV market, Airtest has become the only company with wireless CO2 sensor control of HVAC equipment.Prior to our wireless system being introduced CO2 sensors were electrically wired throughout the building wherever DCV was being utilized.  Because of the high cost of installing wired systems, our wireless system can be installed at less than half the cost and be completed much faster than the wired systems.
  • Airtest has also taken advantage of the wireless capability to develop a wireless platform that can control the operation of rooftop air handlers and economizers. This is a fairly recent add on, but is being very favorably received by retail chains who will now be able to save energy cost using DCV and will also save from the rooftop HVAC equipment being operated more efficiently and with continuous data monitoring if desired.
  • Another product that Airtest has developed is a high quality combination CO2 sensor and controller to be sold by hydroponic stores to the greenhouse industry. We had sold this product successfully through a distribution company in California who went out of business, and for the current market we are making a small modification to become more competitive and take advantage of the rapid growth of greenhouses related to the Cannabis market.

AirTest is A Well Established Name in the Buildings/Control Industry

AirTest is a well known manufacturer of sensors for the building industry. Company sales and marketing personnel participate in a number of trade shows and meetings, write magazine articles, speak at technical meetings and write articles for trade publications.  We also participate in relevant meetings regarding HVAC standards as part of ASHRAE (American Society of Heating, Refrigeration and Air Conditioning Engineers).

 

Strong Technical Partners Provide Us With A 2-3 Year Technology Lead

AirTest has partnered with a number of leading technology companies in the development of our proprietary and exclusive products.  For example our entire line of wireless product is a result of collaboration with three separate companies where AirTest understand the market requirements and our partners develop wireless products to our specifications.

 

Retail/Supermarket Target Market Relationships

A large and key market for AirTest is with retail buildings and including supermarkets.  We actively participate in an organization that includes facility management staff of all large retail organizations and the service organizations that serve them.  We already have identified a number of organizations interested in installing our wireless products.

 

Strong Market/Application Knowledge

AirTest has a number of people on staff who are highly knowledgeable about the technical aspects of the building control industry.  This has helped give us the reputation of being on the cutting edge of technology while being a good resource for technical support and sales advice.

 

Focus On Retrofit Market

While new construction is a major driver in the building industry we also see large untapped enormous potential in the retrofit of buildings to accommodate recent energy savings technologies.  95% of existing building are 5 years and older and are under pressure to reduce energy costs.  AirTest has a specific focus on providing products that meet the unique challenges of retrofitting existing buildings with its cost effective technology.

 

Aggressive Market Pricing

AirTest prices it product to be the most cost effective in the industry offering the best value in total installed cost.

George Graham, President and CEO

Mr. Graham was born and raised in BC and his work with a national company caused him to work in Montreal, Halifax and Winnipeg prior to returning to BC as a private company businessman.   His family of one daughter and two sons all reside in BC and his oldest son Murray works with AirTest as Operations Manager.  Mr. Graham operated several successful private companies before founding AirTest and then taking the company public in 2000. AirTest suffered a couple of serious setbacks including the primary reason it went public, but Graham was determined to reshape its priorities and make it a successful investment for its very loyal body of shareholders.

 

As a result of some forward looking product development over the past three years, the company is poised to enjoy very strong growth going forward, and Mr. Graham is dedicated to ensure the business maximizes its growth by taking advantage of its unique product offering at this time.

 

 

Mike Schell, VP Marketing & Business Development

Mr. Schell has close to 30 years experience in developing markets for gas sensor applications. Before joining AirTest Mr. Schell was a co-founder of Telaire, the first company to develop low cost CO2 measurement technology for the buildings market. As a pioneer in the concept of using CO2 sensors to control ventilation based on occupancy, Mr. Schell has led AirTest in putting together an excellent product and sales support capability which has resulted in the strong growth of the company’s Parking Garage Systems as well as the HVAC control systems that are based on CO2 sensor measurement of real time occupancy in variable occupancy buildings.

 

During the last three years  Mr. Schell has worked closely with GSS out of Scotland, Point Six Wireless based in Kentucky, and XCSpec in California to coordinate the development of energy saving systems based around our CO2 WiFi sensors. At the same time AirTest can offer substantial additional savings by controlling and monitoring Rooftop Air Handlers. Mr Schell has a strong background in OEM and distributor-based selling that complements his extensive knowledge of HVAC systems and indoor air quality applications.

A safe and moderated social network for kids and teens – https://www.kidzworld.com/

 

At Kidzworld, all kids and teens have a space to express their free-spirited selves in our safe, content-rich, and highly-interactive online community.

 

We build community in our connection-focused web and mobile product for kids and teens aged 9-16.

 

Key features including a chat room, direct private messaging, forums, blogs, groups, user created articles, and relevant editorial content to engage and educate users within our inclusive environment.

 

To reassure parents and support kids and teens, user interactions are moderated with a combination of an automated chat filter system and a team of live moderators. The algorithms are able to spot inappropriate context in online conversations, analyze a variety of signals from the conversation (and the user’s reputation), and categorize the underlying behavior to take appropriate action – in real time without delay. We also rely on a team of adult and teen moderators to help create a safe space for all kids and teens to connect and build relationships.

1. Unique Market Position

  • Kidzworld is the only independently owned social community for kids and teens. Kidzworld fosters an environment where kids and teens feel free to express themselves with a community that feels like family.
  • We create safe space in our products and in conversations with users. Kidzworld is a safe harbour that users, parents, teachers and advertisers can trust.
  • This foundation and position allows Kidzworld to be scaled to a much larger global level with the proper tools and resources available.
  • A recently completed brand identity and marketing strategy puts Kidzworld in the position to rapidly scale the business with an accurate and concise message to our audiences.

2.  Focus on Under 13

Kidzworld is the only fully COPPA compliant social network focusing on the U13 audience.

 

3.  Safe Social and content integrations

  • Kidzworld has a unique position as we provide a large database of original content within the social community that allows the members to engage with in a safe and moderated environment.
  • This is an opportunity for our longstanding advertising and content partners to advertise their products, games and movies to access a younger audience. This age group can be challenging to reach due to the restrictions of COPPA.

1.  COPPA compliance

  • Allows advertisers to reach a large user base that they wouldn’t normally have access to.
  • Creates trust for parents and teachers looking for a safe space for their kids/teens/students.
  • Reassures parents and teachers that there will be no inappropriate content or advertising on the site.

 

2.  Moderator-user and peer to peer relationships

A key element to Kidzworld’s stickiness is the genuine relationships formed between users/moderators – the vast majority of interactions and engagement occurs in conversations between people (vs. sharing, posting, etc. on other platforms).

These relationships keep users returning day after day and keep them in app (average session duration = 3 minutes).

According to Statista, Instagram’s average session duration is 3.1 minutes.

 

3.  Kidzworld tenure

Kidzworld has been building community since 2001; outlasting Disney’s Club Penguin and was founded three years before Facebook (2004).  We provide a unique community where users create personal and long standing relationships that grow with their Kidzworld Profiles.

 

4.  Independent

Being an independent website provides significant value for Kidzworld. Not being owned by a major brand like Viacom, Time Warner or Disney makes the site a more attractive to opportunity.
