Ethelo Decisions has developed a cloud-based software solution that significantly reduces the cost of stakeholder engagement, while also improving the outcomes, by allowing each participant to variably weigh the value of each variable in the consideration process. Then, Ethelo's proprietary algorithm calculates both the sum total of all possible variants and the most successful possible outcomes given the participant's feedback.  The revenue model layers a consultation fee to cover the fixed costs of set up and a software as a service subscription fee for the length of the engagement.  <a href="http://ethelodecisions.com" target="_blank">Visit us online: ethelodecisions.com</a>

ChatterHigh addresses the the knowledge and communication gap between the post-secondary institutions, trade associations and corporations that need to convey the opportunities available once school-age children (Gr. 6-12) graduate, and the school-age children that need to be informed in order to make effective and empowered choices leading up to graduation. What ChatterHigh has done is built a platform that gamifies the process of researching the options for the future. The revenue model is based on a fee-per-click, charged to the post-secondary institution, when a child clicks on a link to research the answer to a quiz question provided by the same institution.  <a href="http://www.chatterhigh.com" target="_blank">Visit us online: www.chatterhigh.com</a>

ViewsIQ has developed advanced digitization technology specific to the work of pathologists and their microscopic analysis of slide-based samples. Largely a software solution, ViewsIQ allows the pathologist to analyze a sample as they would from their own microscope, with the ability to manage magnification, depth of field and focal point, all from their computer at a distance.
