Axel started PRation LLC as a way to create commercial products in the field of astronautics. PRation’s first product, Hydropearl, will be used to reduce water consumption by irrigation systems and provide a fertilizing solution to grow foods for home applications and industrial farming. Axel hopes that Hydropearl will expand across all markets where water consumption by irrigation systems is a critical factor due to high losses or a lack of water.

 

Julián Ríos Cantú

Company: Higia, Inc.

School: Monterrey Institute of Technology

After his mother’s painful two-time battle with breast cancer, Julián resolved to save women’s lives through early breast cancer detection. Higia Technologies is a Mexican biosensor company dedicated to boosting women’s quality of life through professional self-explorative methods that increase early detection of breast cancer. Its flagship product, EVA, is the first intelligent bra that uses touch, texture, color and pressure to non-invasively assess breast health. The biggest challenge he has faced is overcoming insufficient data deductions and analyses by implementing neural networks that accurately analyze various data results. Julian believes that technology has helped him to give women a better chance of life so that they do not have to suffer what his mother suffered.  “Technological innovation is the main tool to save lives, if you have the passion to innovate and solve problems.”
