|Lucent Biosciences has developed a patented process to bind micronutrients in their bioavailable form to cellulose fibers. The technology is a major innovation in the fertilizer industry, because it is the first fertilizer that is carbon-neutral, does not tie up in the soil and does not have run-off pollution. Our technology upcycles low value fiber from food processing residue like pea hulls or rice husk as a carrier for the micronutrients, creating a truly circular economy from crop to fertilizer. Lucent’s fertilizer technology is unique because it provided nutrients to plant roots on-demand throughout the whole lifecycle. Extensive trials conducted in 2020 have shown improved growth, increased yield and higher nutrient density.
Lucent received a $2.9M investment from Protein Industries Canada Supercluster and AGT Foods in March 2020 and is preparing for a Series A in Q2 2021.

|CuePath Innovation is solving the problem of medication adherence for elders Aging-in-Place with the help of private Home Care Agencies (HCAs). 40% of seniors are forced to enter expensive and unfamiliar nursing homes because they can no longer self-medicate at home, and 50% of patients over 65 do not take their medications as prescribed for multiple chronic conditions such as heart disease, cancer, depression and anxiety. COVID-19 restrictions on HCAs have exacerbated this problem dramatically with fewer home care visits, high staff turnover, and limited staff availability. Our CueCare™ Plus service includes the CuePack™ smart blister pack sticker applied at pharmacies and CueCall™ medication reminder service for HCA patients. Our simple, effective, inexpensive system provides HCAs with the real-time contactless medication adherence data they need to prioritize scarce and expensive in-home nursing support|
