It is proven that gut health deteriorates as a person ages, leading to increased risk of gut diseases such as inflammatory bowel diseases (IBD) and colorectal cancer (CRC). Most supplements in the market are not proven to be effective to address this problem. Therefore, we have developed a new evidence-based gut health supplement, MastGut. It contains DUSP10 protein, which is shown scientifically to reduce CRC and gut inflammation. MastGut would thus meet the needs of all health-conscious individuals and patients with IBD and/or CRC who want to maintain a heathy gut in order to prevent the development or progression of gut diseases.
Indoor farm operators rely on conventional air conditioning and mechanical ventilation equipment to manage the indoor climate. This equipment is usually outdated and not suitable for the climate needs of modern indoor farms. Existing approaches typically rely on pre-determined schedules that run for several months at a time. At the same time, farm operators usually do not have the skillset in-house to manage multiple and sometimes competing priorities, such as balancing temperature, humidity, and ventilation requirements, along with complex building standards and guidelines.
Ambient’s flagship product overcomes climate management challenges of indoor farmers through an integrated hardware-software solution. Using Ambient's patent-pending optimization methods, indoor farms can leverage the full extent of their data and latest machine learning techniques to create an optimal indoor environment specific for their crops.

50% of worlds energy is getting wasted as low-temperature heat. H2C is a deep-tech startup from NUS focusing on harnessing low-temperature heat and converting it into cooling and power. Utilizing low-grade waste heat leads to increased energy efficiency and profitability while reducing greenhouse gas emissions. The existing technologies for harnessing low-grade heat are complex, expensive and they cannot utilize very low temperature heat (<100 ºC) in an effective way. Our patented technology converts this abundantly available low-grade heat into cooling and power in a system which is compact, less expensive, efficient, effective and easy-to-operate.
Counterfeit seeds are an enormous and growing problem, which have lower quality and yield as compared to original seeds. Seed companies lose business and reputation. Currently, most anti-counterfeit measures focus on seed packaging. Heseed's technology produces a 'watermark' at the seed level - proving the authenticity of each seed and which company "watermarked" it. Our proprietary technique is rapid, dry and chemical-free. Heseed 's authentication technology arose from its priming method that increases the speed of seed germination by 40% to 200% for key vegetable crops and provides more abundant and profitable harvests for farmers.
HiCura's automatic spinal landmark identification system together with a real-time needle insertion system will greatly assist clinicians to precisely determine the exact location where a drug needs to be delivered. Our immediate application is focused on epidural administration where one in every three procedures faces an error and has the potential of causing severe harm. Our product has been extensively tested through clinical trials on 141 pregnant women at KK hospital, and demonstrated an accuracy of more than 92% for first time success rate for epidural delivery.
Lexikat (Formerly Vox Dei)

Our innovative process, Solidified Natural Gas (SNG, patent pending), allows for safe, costeffective and long-term storage of natural gas. By storing natural gas in the form of icelike compounds such as gas hydrates at 0 degree C. It eliminates the risks associated with handling of liquefied natural gas and compressed natural gas at high-pressures. In addition, SNG's capital cost is less than 50 % of the cost of current natural gas storage and transportation solutions Our customers are natural gas producers, power generation companies, distributors, industrial users and energy hub companies.
Water is essential for plant growth. Farming accounts for 70% of global water extractions and soil-based farming requires frequent watering. Under water-limited conditions, plant growth is usually affected, resulting in reduced crop harvests. Our innovation, InnoGroTM, is a superabsorbent hydrogel that is derived from a by-product of the food production industries. This patented hydrogel has great water holding power, with a swelling capacity of 150 times. It acts as a mini-reservoir, retaining water nearer to the roots for longer periods of time, thus saving on water and watering frequency. InnoGroTM is highly useful as a soil supplement in both agricultural and horticultural sectors.
NuSpace vision is to provide affordable global loT connectivity. 85% of the world is not connected. This is preventing widespread adoption of loT technology. Existing solutions rely on expensive satellites that are designed for high data rate applications that result in high cost when used to transmit loT data. Nanosatellites are palm sized satellites that are relatively cheaper to produce allowing a constellation to be deployed economically. NuSpace builds nanosatellites which are optimised for loT applications, allowing low cost loT connectivity services to be offered.
