Because the viewer knows that the program will appear in seconds once the fast forward is complete, the viewer will pay attention to the impressions and accompanying audio, making these few seconds of commercial time in many instances nearly as effective as the 30 or 60 second commercial, especially for a branded product.

The core service answers the question "Is my advisor worth the fees they charge?" It is cost prohibitive (due to FINRA regulations) for advisors to publish a performance track record like a mutual fund does. Advisors whose clients receive a positive GMA report will have a huge advantage in attracting new client referrals as they will have an advocate of their service with an independent third-party documentation of their performance that does not breach FINRA regulations. Using the data collected from this service, GMA will create the world's only database of Financial Advisor performance data and will be able to sell it to investors looking for a financial advisor – in this regard, GMA will operate as the "Morningstar of Financial Advisors." GMA will also act as a professional "introducing relationship broker" between investors and Financial Advisors.

  • Quantum Solar is developing a patent pending, "corner-turning" technology that utilizes a fundamental new structure using nanotechnology that dramatically increases the conversion efficiency of solar cells to 60% or higher. For more than forty years, the efficiency of solar cells has remained static. The ability of solar cells to convert solar energy (or photons) to electrons, resulting in electricity - a process known as conversion efficiency - has been capped at between 10 and 15%. As a result of these low conversion efficiencies, grid energy has remained more cost effective than solar energy. Government subsidies are currently necessary for solar energy to be able to compete with grid energy. Quantum Solar's technology will allow solar energy to not only compete with grid energy, but it will make solar cells the preeminent energy choice for consumers and utilities alike.

  • Expanesthetics, Inc.
  • Expanesthetics, Inc. (“Expanesthetics”) founded in 2012, is commercializing the discovery of the answer to one of the longest-standing scientific questions in modern medicine: How do general anesthetics work? All current general anesthetics have many undesirable side effects ranging from post-operative nausea and vomiting, to cardiovascular and respiratory depression etc. Despite inhalation anesthetics having several important advantages over intravenous agents, inhalation anesthesia innovation has stagnated since the early 1970s, primarily because no one knew how they worked.

    Expanesthetics has discovered novel inhalation anesthetics that may be significantly faster than all conventional agents - a characteristic on its own that history suggests may rapidly drive the market towards these new agents. Within 8 years, almost 60% of the market switched to branded sevoflurane primarily because it was faster than isoflurane. Additionally, these novel anesthetics appear to have several other favorable clinical qualities (including normal blood pressure) that upon regulatory and marketing approval could immediately make them competitive agents, and possibly standard-of-care. Expanesthetics is targeting “Hypotension” as it is a more common and frequent side-effect and has identified one new, quicker volatile anesthetic that preserves cardiovascular function.

Using a multi-contact electrode and a programmable pulse generator, ImThera's OSA device delivers muscle tone to key tongue muscles, effectively controlling upper airway flow and reducing or eliminating sleep apnea. This OSA device functions during sleep (all night), and does not require additional sensors or logic to synchronize to related events.

    Based on extensive research, the ImThera believes the developed OSA device will prevent the tongue from blocking the upper airway and, as a result, resolve the primary cause of OSA.

Oil & Gas

  • EOR Domestic, LLC
  • EOR Domestic, LLC (EOR) is a service company that specializes in enhanced oil recovery. EOR uses a revolutionary, non-toxic, multi-patented chemical formulation to enhance heavy oil production. This proprietary formula proved its effectiveness in ten years of field tests in Kern County, California, an area known as the "Silicon Valley" of heavy oil. This formulation was designed specifically as a non-hazardous liquid that is stable up to over 325 degrees Farhenheit that simplifies complex carbon chains and keeps them in a liquid form. EOR's service reduces the viscosity of heavy oil, permitting it to be readily pumped out of the ground. When the formulation was applied as a down hole stimulant in over 400 test wells oil production increased in every instance for up to 7 to 24 months without the necessity of follow-on treatments.

  • Visalo Energy, Inc.

The company’s patent pending technology will directly compete with existing heavy oil recovery, in addition to conventional oil recovery technologies. Conservative production rates with low entry and extraction costs will generate higher revenues, profits, and market share than any other competitor method of extraction that is either not commercially viable, imposes environmental risks, or produces substantially lower production rates.

  • Portfolio Capital
  • Portfolio Capital (venture agent) has developed a proprietary technology solution for the heavy oil industry - a crude oil additive (or "CTS"). By adding "CTS" to heavy oils, the API gravity is increased and the viscosity is decreased. The viscosity of the oil can be made to adapt to a desired level for flow and the API gravity can be increased, which will result in improved quality crude oil and a better price. The reduced viscosity results in the easy transportation of oil, allowing it to flow into and out of vessels including tankers, containers, and pipelines without heat. The addition of "CTS" increases the light fractions of the oil as oil is released from the paraffin and asphaltenes. "CTS" becomes a part of the oil and does not require de-emulsifying compounds, which alleviates the environmental impact from the de-emulsification processes.
