From our archives- 1860 17 years into founding Economist, James Wilson's most ambitious project partnering queen victoria in launching chartered bank by and for the quarter of peoples on india subcontinent stalls.
Wilson dies of diarrhea 9 months after landing in calcutta. 85 years later sir kenneth kemp (father in law of Economist's Norman Macrae writes up legalese of Indian Independence.

Although many believe Victoria did plant this legacy for the 20th C royal family - not in time for east Insia comoany to ruin another quarter of the world's lives - the chinese after 1960 clsoe themselves to global trade rather than accept ultimatum to accept opium as a currency. Just as it takes peoples of the place we now call bnagaldesh 110 yeras to start freeing their own trade, so too contenetal china.

We have developed an aluminum based clean fuel with 30x the energy density of lithium batteries, requires no oxygen, produces no emissions, and reacts at low temperature. It has been successfully demonstrated in a portable 3kW generator built for the Marines and we are currently working with Lincoln Labs to develop a compact high energy density power system for dismounted soldiers. Following this we will pursue civilian applications where batteries underperform (marine, camping, power banks).

Flare - capsule.technology

We know every second matters in an emergency. At Flare, we are building a mobile app to help patients in Africa access ambulances. We are working to reduce wait times from hours to minutes. Today, the problem is not due to a lack of ambulances as most operate between 10-30% capacity. Rather, it's because there is no single line to call and ambulances do not have an integrated dispatch system. We are looking to impact the 70 million Africans who experience an emergency each year.


Small shippers don't have the capacity to access the best shipping rates because freight brokers apply an average 12.5% fee per shipment, partially for no-value-added activities. Truck drivers have a hard life and an average annual salary of $40,000 is not enough to attract new workforce in an industry that expects 240K vacant positions in five years. FR8 is a state-of-the-art on-demand platform for long-distance freight that makes shippers pay less and drivers earn more.

gomango - gomango.co

In India, 40% of all food produced -- $8 billion worth -- rots on its way to market because it is too expensive to keep that food cold en route. India's farmers, fishermen, and food producers simply cannot afford the diesel-guzzling refrigerated trucks that would help them sell high-quality goods at the best prices in the right markets. Gomango's low-cost, sensor-equipped refrigerated boxes, rentable on demand, will turn any truck or train into a high-value refrigerated one.


Sepsis kills millions of people annually, is the leading cause of death for critically ill patients, and represents a $35 billion market.

Kinetic Vision

Oil wells are expensive to drill. They get clogged surprisingly frequently, each one failing once a year. Because of the uncertainty in when they will fail, oil companies replace their wells much earlier than they need to be. We have technology that can look at tiny deformations in the beams that are used to pump the well to predict when the well will fail. Oil companies can then delay well replacement without risking downtime.

Leuko - leuko.io

20% of chemotherapy patients develop fevers while severely immunosuppressed, a life-threatening condition. If doctors could identify when patients become immunosuppressed, medications could be prescribed to reduce the risk of developing fevers. However, current immunosuppression assessment methods require travel to healthcare centers, inherently limiting the frequency of testing. Leuko is overcoming this barrier by creating the first portable, non-invasive neutrophil test, enabling on-demand immune system monitoring.

Rendever - rendever.com

7 out of 10 Americans will need long-term care solutions in their lifetime. Rates of depression in these environments can be as high as 50%, creating a substantial physical, mental and financial burden. In turn, depression in many cases can lead to comorbid diseases such as COPD and heart disease, with preventable care costing over $20,000 annually. As such, we have created a virtual reality platform to offer stimulation, therapy and family/social connectivity to help address these medical issues before they arise.


Bringing a drug to a market requires 13 years, costing $1.7 B with a 10% success rate. This low success rate caused many safe-to-market drugs sitting on shelves.

Hydrogen peroxide (H2O2) is the green chemical oxidant of the future and is projected to be a $7 billion market by 2020. While H2O2 breaks down into just water and oxygen, the current production process is environmentally unfriendly, dangerous, capital intensive and requires the final product to be transported over thousands of miles. At Solugen, our bio-inspired and patented approach achieves a green, safe, and scalable process for the onsite and on-demand production of H2O2 that cuts costs by 20x.
