Here's our current lineup:

Dash (http://dash.by) - Jamyn Edis and Brian Langel, Co-founders
Dash is like a FitBit for cars, making any vehicle a 'smart car'. We use data to make the roads safer, greener and more affordable. We connect your car to your smartphone via low-cost, plug & play hardware, called an OBD II reader, which is compatible with all cars sold after 1996 in the US. Our vision is to create an open data platform for the roads, 'the automotive graph'.

Ketchup (http://gottaketchup.com/) - Matt Capucilli, Founder
Ketchup is an iPhone app (and web app) that allows you to plan your social life by making simple agreements to do activities with your friends.

Farm2Me (http://farm2.me) - Garry Michael, Founder/CEO
Farm2me has been working on disaster relief using local food distribution and a social platform. We started at St Francis / Beach 129 with 1 vendor on Oct. 29, and grew to 22 local vendors/farmers by the 5th day and 55 by the 2nd week, 7,000 meals daily and over 200,000 meals total to 23 disaster relief sites in Rockaways, Staten Island, Coney Island, Seagate, Gerritsen Beach & NJ. We think we've discovered the solution to disaster relief, and have attracted the attention of the DHS/OEM's directors of disaster preparedness and response from NYC's biggest hospitals. We have recently garnered interest from Tech Stars, The Hatchery, BKAdvisory, OKSystems and NYCGOV's Code Corps. Our most recent partnership with SparkRelief.org will allow us to create the first local food disaster relief platform in the country. We're really excited! Do you see the potential? If yes, won't you join us?

Appboy (http://www.appboy.com)- Cezary Pietrzak, Director of Marketing
Appboy is a customer engagement platform for mobile apps that helps you understand, segment and message your audience. App developers use our tool to build stronger relationships with their customers post app-install, one of the biggest difficult challenges in the ecosystem today. We launched in late 2012 and are quickly becoming an indispensable service for anyone serious about building a long-term app business.
