CaHill TECH, Inc.  aQuiRe                                                       Carley Hill, Founder/President

     The number one challenge facing construction companies across the Nation is workforce shortages. These shortages delay the strengthening of our utility grids, roadways and bridges. It affects safety, transportation costs and economic growth in both urban and rural communities.

     Our solution, aQuiRe©, is an app-based skill-sharing platform. A virtual video library forms the foundation of the system. These stories are told from the perspective of experienced trades people, captured live in a variety of field settings and scenarios. We create dynamic, engaging mini-documentaries on how to build, maintain, and survive in a trades-track career. aQuiRe© provides a daily log of mobile-accessible modules composed of real-time, authentic video, supplemental resources and quiz content. We use unique yet user-friendly delivery channels, facilitating essential skills and safety training. The system provides performance tracking and peace of mind for employers, risk managers and educators who strive for optimal safety standards and employee caliber.

     Exploring the aQuiRe© library and learning modules engenders the user with knowledge and job readiness. This virtual mentor/protégée platform breaks down the stigma of blue-collar careers; enabling the user to see how they can help strengthen their communities, our Nation and find a personal pathway to prosperity. The CaHill team has beta tested with public agencies, private companies and is currently piloting with CTE schools, construction firms and military organizations.  Visit for more information.

Charmtech Labs LLC (Capti Voice)                            Dr. Yevgen Borodin, CEO, Co-founder

    36M (66%) of U.S. K-12 students (77% in Buffalo public schools) read below grade level, and teachers cannot do much about it because they are overwhelmed by the diversity of needs and abilities in the classroom.

    Capti Voice is helping to level the playing field for students of all abilities by enabling teachers to: 1) assess students' foundational reading skills, 2) use actionable recommendations to improve those skills, 3) use personalized tools to help develop those skills over any content, and 4) provide reading accommodations - all on the same platform.

    The Company is focused on the $1B addressable U.S. K-12 market, with plans to eventually expand into corporate, HigherEd and consumer markets. Capti Voice has already exceeded revenue of $250k+ and is now used in 100+ schools (and colleges) across the U.S., as well as by 10k+ of consumers around the world. Learn more at

    Capti Voice was funded by $3.7M in SBIR grants and $500k seed round from private and institutional investors, including LearnLaunch Accelerator and ARC Capital. Capti Voice won several industry awards, including EdTech Digest's "Best Special Needs Solution," and it came close to winning the 2018 43North competition.

    The Company has signed an Erie One BOCES contract subsidizing NY public schools purchases with state aid. It has established several referral partnerships and is collaborating with UB. With several strategic partnerships in the works, Capti Voice is preparing to scale, and wants to do so in Buffalo, where it has been approved for a StartUpNY office space.
