With food trucks cutting the cost of ordinary restaurants and the food truck industry growing faster than any food industry, we think it is important to have a platform that not only connects the community of food truck lovers to their favorite food trucks, but also a platform that will connect food trucks to their fans. With this platform, fans will be able to track where and what food trucks are near them. They will, also, be able to filter by cuisine type, price range, and other specifications to make sure they get the best quality food possible for their budget. Corporations will also have the ability to put in their food orders to get personalized catering.




SHARE aims to bridge the gap in healthcare quality between developed and developing nations through:

  • Conducting initial needs assessments and assemble 40 ft. containers of equipment and supplies to be shipped (partnering with MedShare)

  • Developing a professional development program curriculum for nurses, as well as community building and health awareness programs to facilitate change within the community (partnering with the Ministry of Health in Cameroon).

SHARE will remain sustainable through SHARE Scrubs, a medical apparel sister company which incorporates ethnic fabrics sourced from the countries which SHARE aids, and donates 25% of profits back to SHARE in order to support their programs.

Seersucker logo


Founded in May 2012 and launched January 2013, Seersucker is a digital magazine dedicated to publishing the best writing from millennials. Young voices are vastly underrepresented in the media and we are changing that. Seersucker judges media solely on its content, depth and perspective. A writer’s credentials and resume aren’t as important as what they put on the page.

Writers should write about what they are passionate about. When writers are invested in their stories, the quality of writing is palpable. We all see the world differently and a variety of perspectives and opinions should see the light. Everyone has something to share.

<p”>We won’t hide our opinions and you shouldn’t hide yours. We want liberal stories as well as conservative stories; local stories as well as global stories. We simply want the most honest, relevant content there is. And this philosophy goes beyond stories; we encourage you to comment on articles and further the discussion. We want discourse, debate and (non violent) arguments.



Augno logo


Providing insight for smart investment

Augno, which stands for augmented knowledge, is a learning engine that provides not just information but insight.  Our database needs a better model than a table to achieve higher intelligence, and the (short) answer is a hypergraph. A hypergraph can be used to represent anything in the universe, at least from an information-theoretic point of view, and it comes with sophisticated mathematical operations that allow for intelligent behavior, and it is intuitive enough because you can easily picture it. So we started developing a modern middleware and computation engine for big data that is powerful enough to handle (almost) all your input, output, and computation needs, while being simple and elegant. We call this tool, Atlas.


Project Serengetee


Founded in 2012, Serengetee is a social clothing venture that incorporates global fabric into clothing products, hence our slogan ‘Wear the World’.

Each Serengetee fabric is partnered with a corresponding cause, giving Serengetee the chance to make a difference in the communities that inspire our designs. In only one year, the Serengetee brand has grown rapidly, gaining recognition among young consumers nationwide.
