Izzy Wheels - they're "re-inventing the wheel"

by: Startacus Admin ~ 14th November 2017
People like to customise things - to put a personal touch on them. From flames or stripes down the side of your car (which make it go faster, obviously) to pink fuzzy dice hanging on the mirror; from plastering the underside of your skateboard with stickers and cutouts of Hulk to...whatever the hip young people do with hoverboards these days; from sticking a playing card through the spokes of your...

Echo - innovation in medication

by: Startacus Admin ~ 5th November 2017
Every year, the NHS spends close to £18 billion on medication. Anywhere up to half of the medication prescribed for long-term use is not taken as prescribed, however, with people forgetting to take it, putting off taking it, forgetting the correct dosage, or even running out and not getting around to picking up another prescription. This is, obviously, not an ideal state of affairs. Echo is...

Flock offers on-demand insurance for drone pilots

by: Startacus Admin ~ 29th October 2017
The drone industry might have started off as something of a fad, but where people might have expected interest in it to die down, it has only become stronger and stronger. In the US alone, just under 2.5m personal drones were sold in 2016. And while the individual hobbyist is finding entertainment in drones, businesses and entrepreneurs are finding more and more applications for them, cutting down...

Farm-r - The Farmer to Farmer Rental Service

by: Startacus Admin ~ 23rd October 2017
Farming is not an easy life, nor often a lucrative one. Machinery and equipment can be hugely expensive, and return on investment comes very slowly. Worse is when a farmer only needs a particular piece of equipment temporarily. There are, of course, already places to rent the equipment, but what if a farmer could support another farmer while getting the use of the required equipment? Farm-r ...

Coroflo - innovation in breastfeeding

by: Startacus Admin ~ 23rd October 2017
Breastfeeding is an important part of a baby’s development, with benefits to baby and mother including nutritional, immune system, developmental, and psychological. However, in the UK, apparently only 1% of mothers exclusively breastfeed, with a quarter of women bringing it to an end by only 6 weeks. The reasons for this of course vary, but the majority of women cite the fear of low supply a...

ProtectBox - Cyber Security decisions made easy

by: Startacus Admin ~ 15th October 2017
Cyber security gets more important with each passing day. More and more individuals and businesses go online, expand their online services, collect and store personal and payment information online, take advantage of cloud-based services, and so on. The online world is increasingly a land of opportunity for nefarious ne’er-do-wells and scoundrels and the like. More than ever, then, cyber s...

Pedal Me pushes forward with its on-demand taxi service powered by bike

by: Startacus Admin ~ 15th October 2017
With London perhaps saying goodbye to Uber, the city is going to need a new alternative to black cabs, if only for the sake of choice. (We of course appreciate too that there are other Uber like taxi-hailing services in London - which you can still use). Walking is cheaper, of course, but London is big, busy, and everyone is always in a rush. So what is faster than walking but capable of avoidin...

The State of Receipts is in Flux

by: Startacus Admin ~ 8th October 2017
Receipts are annoying, easily-lost, tree-murdering, messy things that we are often tempted to throw straight in the bin even when we know we need to keep them. They are among those little, unimposing things that nevertheless get in the way. Surely in this digital age, we should have some kind of digital solution for this. Well, it’s funny you should say that, because we’re looking at o...

Firemole - the Irish startup that's taking a proactive step against fire

by: Startacus Admin ~ 1st October 2017
Despite technological advances and a heightened awareness of the need for safety in technology, electrical devices still pose a fire risk. Despite horror stories of devices exploding because they were used while charging, for example, parents still allow their children to do just that because it ‘probably won’t happen’. However infrequently these things happen, they do happen, an...
