What distinct problem does this solve for who and how does this create value for them?

Professionals in the architecture and interior design industries know that design mistakes can lead to disastrous results and angry customers if not caught in time.

We’re creating tools that help companies (and their clients) experience new spaces together before they physically exist. Virtual reality gives people a sense of spatial awareness that can’t be replicated by traditional artifacts such as floorplans, sketches and 3d renderings. Our platform opens up opportunities for rich feedback, increases buy-in, and helps people catch issues that don’t show up on paper.

What is the name of the company and/or product?

Our company is named Rethread

What problem does this solve and what was the “aha” moment?

Our goal is to reduce annual textile waste and help customers conserve resources while keeping up-to- date with fashion trends. Rather than making clothes from scratch, our designers transform and return the customer’s original clothing using the principles of upcycling. The Rethread model enables us to have lower raw material costs compared to other fashion brands. We then pass on these savings to customers.

Rethread’s platform simplifies the shopping experience by limiting the amount of time spent parsing through choices. We accomplish this by personally curating, and creating designs based on the customer’s preferences as well as the latest fashion trends.

What is the name of the company and/or product? Where is it found online?

Homecare Timesheets system by PCA Partners.

What problem does this solve and what was the “aha” moment? How does this create value? 

Currently this app solves two big problems: inefficient timekeeping in the personal care assistant (PCA) industry and new state requirements to verify that PCA services paid for by the state are actually received. The first “aha” moment came when I realized I could use a mobile app to replace inefficient paper timesheets in my PCA business. The second came when it became clear that Minnesota, like many states before, was going to require some form visit verification for PCA services, and I realized my app could be expanding to integrate electronic verification.
