Five startups participating in the Mill Cohorts pre-accelerator pitch their companies.
- Prospect XR — Prospect XR is a community building company which aims to establish meritocracy in the web3.0 space. DAOs (decentralized autonomous organizations) are failing compared to centralized competitors because of bots, trolls, and vanity metrics. Prospect’s Respect platform creates a smart governance system for DAOs, which helps them compete.
- CERO — CERO wants to make the current cap-and-trade process more transferable, transparent, and accountable by using NFT tokens. By using an ethereum side chain proof of stake token, transactions used in cap-and-trade auctions will run more efficiently and promote integrity.
- Solesca — Founded in January of 2022, Solesca is a SaaS company that creates software that allows developers to optimize their next project with agrivoltaics (co-location of solar panels and crops). Agrivoltaics provide numerous benefits to both farmers and developers including reduced land competition, the ability to optimize the land, and reduced rental costs. However, agrivoltaic projects are difficult to design, as both the agricultural and photovoltaic configurations need to be considered. Solesca makes it easy for solar developers to work with farmers to figure out how to maximize revenue for the both of them.
- NiCE:Name on Rice — NiCE engraves names on grains on rice and encapsulates them in miniature pendants with beads and flowers to add to accessories. Having a personalized message engraved on something so microscopic is unique. Being able to choose from thousands of combinations of beads and flowers to make a cute accessory gives customers maximum personalization capabilities.
- Mahesh Carpets — In market where everything is becoming machine-made, Mahesh Carpets manufactures hand-made products. Backed with over more than 46 years of experience in the stunning product range, designs, and color combinations, they have developed a reputation of providing quality hand-made home decor products like area rugs, cushions, ottoman and wall hangings.
