   Fill Education                                                                                                         Harry O'Malley, Co-Founder

     There are 55 million K-12 students in the United States and every one of them receives a math lesson every day.  20 million of these lessons do not result in the intended learning. Currently, schools do not track the success or failure of these lesson delivery attempts, meaning reteach efforts are either non-existent or ineffective.

     Fill Education has designed software that allows teachers to quickly create and administer brief, daily assessments that test whether or not each of their students has retained the skill and knowledge that was taught two days prior.  Fill's software then integrates with the school's scheduling system to route students who failed to retain the learning into extra help classes the next day.

     Fill's method was first used in one grade level in one local school.  The end of year test results were so dramatically positive that the district now uses it in all grade levels in all of their schools.  We began offering Fill to other local districts in the last few months and have received positive traction, with 5 districts and 2 universities on board with pilots with the intention of purchasing for next year.

     There are 125,000 K-12 schools and 7,000 universities in the United States.  We are looking for funding to build the team that will get us a strong initial foothold in that market over the next two years.  Visit fill.education for more information.

Vista View                                                                                       Brendan McIntyre & Spencer McIntyre, Co-Founders

     In our increasingly busy society, missing out on important events due to other commitments is happening more and more. Whether it's parents traveling on business unable to attend a child's sporting event, families living out of town missing their loved one's awards ceremony, or other similar missed opportunities, people are often unable to be part of the events that mean most to them.

      As camera technology has evolved, the ability to cost effectively stream quality video feeds can open the door to events like never before. Vista View allows these cameras to be put into action, helping families, friends, and others take part in events in all new, inexpensive, and secure ways. 

      Vista View is a free software system that allows schools and facilities to effortlessly and securely stream footage of live events on the internet. For a small fee, customers can purchase live and downloaded event feeds, and 10-second clips for social media sharing. Coaches, scouts, and school/facility managers also benefit from the increased access to the event feeds. Facilities can add or upgrade as many cameras as they wish, whether it's in the gym, auditorium, or anywhere else they see a demand.

      Having obtained agreements from several area schools, athletic directors, and facilities, Vista View is poised to develop and roll out our system to this emerging marketplace. Contact co-founders Brendan McIntyre ([email protected]) and Spencer McIntyre ([email protected]) for more information.
