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...

Pointy offers local shops the chance to compete online

by: Startacus Admin ~ 1st October 2017
Search for any product online, and the first result or two (or three or four or five) is likely to be Amazon. As handy as Amazon can be for shopping, it and other online shopping megastores are proving disastrous for some small, local shops. Small businesses are closing their doors in record numbers, even after putting all of their products online to try to keep up with the times. At the end of t...

Synap - the app to help you study

by: Startacus Admin ~ 24th September 2017
The human brain, powerful though it may be, forgets up to 40% of information just 20 minutes after we have learned it. After one week, this becomes 80%. This makes study and revision frustrating and leaves you with the sense that all the time you’ve spent doing just that has been wasted. Worse still, it can leave a student feeling as though they have somehow failed if they don’t come a...
