Subject: [hcs-d] DRF's State of Harvard Startups | Planetary Health Watch, Entyde, Parachute Teachers


DRF x Harvard 
Dorm Room Fund's weekly roundup of cool startups on campus.

State of Harvard Startups — 4/19/17

Planetary Health Watch, Entyde, and Parachute Teachers each won $10K at Harvard's 10th Annual i3 Innovation Challenge.




Planetary Health Watch
Our goal is to use computational methods to leverage online big data to identify and predict harmful environmental exposures. We will mine online public concerns and observations to generate real-time hazard detection algorithms and an application to track and report environmental hazards. Crowdsourcing public concerns using big data will enable us to more rapidly predict and respond to environmental hazards, making it possible to avert crises and save lives.

Entyde is an affordable sensor device that ensures proper EMS (Emergency Medical Services) intubation when performed in the field (not in a hospital). Endotracheal intubation is the process of placing a tube into the trachea of a patient when they cannot breathe independently such as in certain cases of cardiac arrest. A common risk during intubation is the misplacement of the endotracheal tube into the esophagus rather than the trachea. This error can lead to severe, life-threatening damage suffered by the patient. Entyde ensures proper placement by sensing a change in CO2 emitted from an endotracheal tube and delivers a digital indication of proper or improper intubation.

Parachute Teachers is addressing the substitute teacher shortage by tapping into the talents of local community members and matching them with schools in need of substitutes through our online marketplace. We’re the Uber for substitute teachers – and our teachers are reimagining the role of the substitute.
