Meet the startups
The ACN South Alabama Startup Showcase is hosting five businesses that will do a short present on their startup to connect with investors and other important contacts. Let’s take a look at the five businesses featured:
SureMed Compliance is a startup taking a multi-faceted approach to ending the prescription opioid overdose crisis. They’ve done this by creating a platform that knits together notes and information on medication compliance from the patient that allows physicians to lower patient risk when prescribing opioids.
Fishing Chaos is a Mobile-based startup that created an app to streamline (pun intended) the fishing tournament process by moving all elements to one platform. On the Fishing Chaos app, tournament directors can manage all elements of the event right from their phone. Anglers register for a tournament in-app (which can happen worldwide, thanks to the digital nature of the tournament). During the tournament anglers upload their catches in live-time which are tracked on the app’s leaderboard until the tournament’s conclusion.
If someone in your life plays video games, then you know just how much room a gaming setup can occupy. BoxCave Furniture is looking to change that, by creating coffee tables with the gaming equipment built right in. Their main focus is putting flying and racing simulation games into these coffee tables, concealing the otherwise bulky equipment.
Food Explorer Club
Anyone who has raised a kid knows how hard it can be sometimes to get kiddo to try something new at the dinner table. Food Explorer Club is a new app helping parents save the tears at dinnertime through their fun and colorful app that rewards kids for trying new foods with badges, rewards and surprises.
