Geminus.ai believes that predictive intelligence should inform and optimize every decision. The company unleashes the power of predictive intelligence by intersecting AI and physics with multi-fidelity modeling. Their novel, first-principles AI translates the constraints of the physical world inside resilient digital models. The company’s platform requires only sparse data to quickly analyze the behavior of complex industrial systems, and can precisely predict the impact of decisions that drive businesses forward.
Holo is driving mass adoption of metal additive manufacturing (AM) for volume production. Holo’s Pureform™ platform of proprietary hardware, materials and software produces high resolution geometries that cannot be made any other way and in any material that can be powderized and sintered, including pure copper, stainless steels and other metal alloys. By leveraging Pureform™ and the design freedom that AM offers, Holo enables customers across industries spanning semiconductor, high performance compute, consumer electronics, automotive, aerospace and medical to realize the complete benefits of AM in their products. Spun out of Autodesk in 2017, the company is headquartered in Silicon Valley.
Mission Bio delivers targeted single-cell genomics solutions for high-impact applications with Tapestri, the Precision Genomics Platform. Tapestri is the industry’s first targeted single-cell DNA sequencing platform, enabling precise detection of heterogeneity in disease progression and treatment response. Application areas include blood cancers, solid tumors, and genome editing validation. The platform includes an instrument, consumables, and analysis software, which integrate seamlessly with existing NGS workflows. With Tapestri, researchers have a highly sensitive, targeted, and customizable solution to move precision medicine forward.
Spun out of research at the University of California, San Francisco, Mission Bio is headquartered in South San Francisco, California.
Omniome is developing a proprietary DNA sequencing platform capable of delivering unsurpassed sequencing accuracy. Backed by leading life sciences venture investors and a proven management team, Omniome’s vision is to be the most trusted DNA sequencing platform and leader in clinical sequencing.
Reno Sub-Systems’ mission is to lead the semiconductor industry in developing radio frequency (RF) matching system/power generator and flow subsystem technologies to optimize process control for volume production. For 10 nm technology nodes and below, these products provide original equipment manufacturers (OEMs) differentiating performance on deposition and etch tools without requiring tool redesign. For device manufacturers, they provide an order-of-magnitude improvement in process control to enable manufacturing of leading-edge devices. Reno’s patented technologies enable the short process times necessary in plasma processes for both planar and 3D device architectures and facilitate “always on” plasma management, improving particle control, film properties, and cost efficiency.
VELO3D is transforming the analog supply chain to digital manufacturing. As the creator of the industry’s first SupportFree solution for 3D metal printing, their product suite is an end-to-end digital manufacturing solution for producing metal parts. With VELO3D Flow™ print preparation software, Sapphire® printer, and Assure™ quality assurance software, manufacturers can accelerate product innovation, become more agile and responsive to market needs, and reduce costs. The company is based in Silicon Valley and is privately funded.
xLight is the exponential light source powering the future of Moore’s Law. We are building an accelerator-based light source solution that enables a more economical and sustainable future of EUV lithography.
