Posted on by

first_img Free Webinar | Sept. 9: The Entrepreneur’s Playbook for Going Global Register Now » Opinions expressed by Entrepreneur contributors are their own. Tech entrepreneurs have climbed the ranks to grace the same magazine covers that once were reserved for Hollywood celebrities and world leaders.  Each year, we see more innovation and success in this space, and 2016 is no exception. The pioneers profiled here come from a range of industries that want to revolutionize their categories and create thousands of new jobs, shifting — through their success — what our future looks like. Allow me to introduce you, in no particular order, to eight tech entrepreneurs you need to know in 2016.Related: Giving Thanks to a Female Tech Pioneer You’ve Probably Never Heard of1. Marc Gorlin, RoadieMarc Gorlin, founder and CEO of Atlanta-based Roadie. Roadie, the first on-the-way delivery network, puts unused capacity into passenger vehicles to work by connecting people who have items they need to send with drivers headed to the same destination. Roadie’s model enables efficient, low-cost delivery for senders and rewards drivers for trips they were already taking.Fun Fact: The average delivery time for Roadie gigs up to 200 miles is 5.5 hours.Milestone: “We will continue to build out the Roadie community to make same-day delivery over hundreds of miles a reality. We want it to be as easy and convenient, to get big, bulky, hard-to-handle stuff delivered hundreds of miles, as it is to get a sandwich delivered down the street,” Gorlin told me.2. Bogdan Constantin, MenguinBogdan Constantin is co-founder and CMO of Fayetteville, Ark.-based Menguin, a technology company infatuated with bettering its clients’ formal wear needs by creating the coolest and easiest way to rent a suit or tuxedo for any event. These rentals happen online, and delivery includes 24/7 customer service.Fun fact: Menguin saves penguins, real penguins. With each rental, the company donates a portion of its proceeds to these endangered animals in South America. Select customers get to name them and receive framed copies and plush toys.Milestone: “Menguin plans to save over 100,000 people from the pain and frustration of having to rent a tux the old way in 2016,” Constantin told me.3. Louis Ziskin, DropInLouis Ziskin is CEO and founder of West Hollywood-based DropIn, Inc., which is changing “the way insurance industries do business, by providing on demand remote video inspection,” Ziskin said. “The app provides a new way to process claims and preview risk while increasing revenue in an industry that generates over $700 billion annually.”Fun Fact: Ziskin is a philanthropist who speaks nationally about causes like anti-recidivism and addiction recovery.Milestone: DropIn is expanding to San Francisco, New York and Chicago and is launching pilot programs with two nationwide insurance companies.4. Lauren Roxburgh, Aligned LifeLauren Roxburgh (Lo Rox) is founder of Santa Monica, Calif.-based Aligned Life. Named the “Body Alignment Pro” by Vogue, Roxburgh is an author and alignment expert who empowers people to move better, improve posture, reduce stress and connect to their authentic selves. She is also the creator of the Aligned Rollers and Aligned Life digital downloads workouts and is launching an app and more digital content to make her method accessible to all, anytime and anywhere.Fun Fact: Roxburgh was dubbed “The Body Whisperer” by Goop.Milestone: Roxburgh will be launching The Taller Slimmer Younger Meal Plan this year.Related: These 5 Tech Conferences Will Let You See the World5. Tom X Lee, One MedicalTom X Lee is founder and CEO of San Francisco-based One Medical, an organization on a mission to make high-quality healthcare more accessible and affordable for everyone. “We offer a modern, tech-enabled approach to primary care that combines people-centered design, smart application of technology and a team of talented providers who have the time and tools necessary to make smarter decisions,” Lee told me. “Our members have access to top health professionals, 24/7 virtual care, same-day appointments.” Fun Fact:  Lee studied fine arts at Yale before ultimately deciding to pursue a career in medicine.Milestone: One Medical will grow to about 60 offices across the United States by the end of the year.6. Kyle Porter, SalesLoftKyle Porter is CEO and founder of the Atlanta-based tech company SalesLoft. “We live, eat, and breath sales development best practices,” Porter said. “Most importantly, we help sales development teams increase the number of qualified appointments set by a dramatic amount — in some cases more than 300 percent. We built the application of record for the sales development team, which allows SDRs [sales development reps] to do what they do well: set qualified sales appointments.”Fun Fact: Porter spends his time between Atlanta, home of SalesLoft, and Winter Haven, Fla., where his wife’s family are fourth-generation tangerine famers. He likes to spend time in the tangerine groves.Milestone: SalesLoft plans to triple its annual recurring revenue by the end of the year.7. David Gardner, ColorJarDavid Gardner is founder and CEO of Chicago-based ColorJar, a creative tech agency that specializes in brand-positioning strategy and custom websites and apps. “Our in-house team of designers and technology developers use brand strategy as their compass to create user experiences that cut through the noise of today’s cluttered world,” Gardner told me.Fun Fact: ColorJar is a bootstrapping success. The creative tech agency was self-funded with $5,000 and has grown to a team of 20 without raising capital.Milestone: “We only work with select clients we fall in love with — and this year we will fall in love for the 150th time,” Gardner said.8.  Tom McLeod, OmniTom McLeod is CEO and founder of San Francisco-based Omni, a company aiming to revolutionize personal storage and the relationships people have with their belongings. It provides an on-demand concierge-style service with convenient pickup and delivery solutions to residents of San Francisco. Users are able to reclaim space in their homes and manage their belongings through an easy-to-use mobile interface.Fun Fact: Books are the most common singular item in Omni’s system: It has literally thousands of books, ranging from Dr. Seuss to Grey’s Anatomy. “It’s amazing how books are constantly being flagged as obsolete in the post iPad/Kindle world, but in reality people have real emotion and attachment to tangible physical books,” McLeod told me, describing those emotions as “both the memories of where [the owners] were when they experienced them, as well as the knowledge contained within.”Related: The 10 Most Influential Leaders in Tech Right NowMilestone: McLeod promises an “expansion outside of 7×7” [San Francisco] as well as some other exciting in-app sharing capabilities among users that will be first of its kind.” April 22, 2016 Growing a business sometimes requires thinking outside the box. 6 min readlast_img read more

8 of the Coolest Projects to Come Out of X Googles Moonshot

first_imgJanuary 23, 2019 4 min read Attend this free webinar and learn how you can maximize efficiency while getting the most critical things done right. Register Now »center_img Free Webinar | Sept 5: Tips and Tools for Making Progress Toward Important Goals Since 2010, Google has dedicated resources to Moonshot projects, forward thinking endeavors designed to solve the world’s biggest problems. So what has the Alphabet-owned company been cooking up?To start, it’s not entirely a surprise that a division with an emphasis on science fiction is intent on making robots a reality. Not much is available to the public on this particular area, but according to the X website, “teams are investigating how machine learning can be used to teach robots new skills that will enable them to reliably perform useful tasks in unstructured environments.” (Alphabet formerly owned Boston Robotics.)So all in good time, we suppose.Read on for some of the most intriguing projects being worked on in X, the Moonshot Factory.Related: These Are the 10 Highest Paying Jobs at GoogleMakaniMakani energy kites, which look like model airplanes tricked out with a bunch of propellers and have the wingspan of a smaller jet plane, are X’s attempt to better harness wind energy. They can generate up to 600 kilowatts of energy, which is enough to power roughly 300 homes. So how does it work? The M600 kite is attached to a ground station, and as the kite is flown, the wind moves through the propellers and the spinning action generates power, which is then sent down to the grid via a tether.Glass Enterprise EditionThough the company’s first stab at Google Glass proved that we weren’t quite ready to wear computers on our faces in casual social settings, the Moonshot factory is currently working on Glass Enterprise Edition, designed with manufacturing and outdoor workers in mind. The idea is that Glass can be clipped onto safety goggles or shields, so if something needs to be repaired, for example, workers can use the display to read directions.Free Space Optics This project is working to bring high-speed internet to areas that do not have access without requiring extensive digging and the laying of lines. Essentially, free space optics is the utilization of beams of light to transmit high speed data between point A and point B. It is currently being implemented in Andhra Pradesh, a state in India.Waymo As of the end of the 2016, with more than 2 million miles in the books — roughly 300 years of human driving, including the first ride on public roads — Google’s self-driving car project graduated from X. Now named Waymo, its first public trial is currently happening in Phoenix, Ariz.Related: Three Things To Learn From Google’s Workplace CultureWingDeveloped in an effort to increase access to goods and reduce traffic and pollution, this effort to create delivery drones made its first real-world deliveries in 2014, bringing first-aid supplies, candy, dog treats and water to farmers in Queensland, Australia. In 2016, it completed what was at the time the largest and longest drone delivery in the U.S., when students at Virginia Tech got air dropped some delicious burritos. The project officially graduated in July 2018.Loon  Project Loon was developed to try a different way of connecting people to the internet — instead of wires in the ground, a network of stratospheric balloons. In 2017, Loon worked with Spanish telecom firm Telefonica to provide internet connectivity to people in Peru who had to leave their homes due to flooding. After Hurricane Maria in 2018, Loon worked with AT&T and T-Mobile to get more than 200,000 people in Puerto Rico back online.VerilyThis team is focused on improving medical tech, developing prototypes for smart contact lenses that could accurately measure biological markers in our eyes, nanotech that could potentially identify and latch onto cancer cells and wearables that could tell when those nanoparticles found the cells and eating utensils that could help users with hand tremors or limited mobility.MaltaOne way you probably didn’t realize you could store energy was in giant tanks of molten salt and chilled liquid. But Malta does just that, sending electricity back to the grid when it’s needed the most. The team is currently at work developing a pilot plant to show whether the tech can be used at a broad commercial scale.last_img read more
