The Companies & Nonprofits:

Elephant Action League:
EAL is an innovative hybrid nonprofit organization that merges the worlds of intelligence, investigations and conservation in service of wildlife and the people who protect it. They started field operations in 2015, and within less than four years have conducted dozens of intelligence-gathering and investigative missions, in 14 countries throughout Africa, Asia and Latin America, on several criminal wildlife supply chains, including ivory, rhino horn, jaguar’s parts, live animals, seafood and other illegal wildlife products.
See them in their two documentaries: The Ivory Game and Sea of Shadows.

Sitch Ai:
This groundbreaking technology is helping keep our public spaces safe from public shootings by using Ai and IoT to detect, notify and mitigate active shooter situations.

Illuminate Education:
Every minute counts in a student’s learning journey and educators need a real-time, actionable approach for understanding each student’s daily progress and challenges. Illuminate Education is bringing more teachable moments to light by empowering educators with the most powerful visualization of the whole student from one, simple view. Driven by data and insights that reveal both strengths and opportunities for growth that otherwise remain hidden, we increase the power of teaching and the delight of learning.
