That's where we're going to come back and end it for most of us, right that's the end of the uh the first part of our event, uh after that though. It's not the end for everyone. So all of the um all the tech hire, all of the isa. Participants, the coders the developers. And the startups. Um will then be going into their own private breakout, sessions. And they will be um. Going through a a really intense. Hiring, event, right, where where they're going to. Get to know one another very quickly, sort of a speed dating, for for work. And um. Hopefully, when we, end today, we will have, 18. 18. Startups, um. With uh with with coders, with developers. With with tech support, people who are going to be working for them and with them, and um we're really excited about that, so. My name again is, tanya hertz. So i am, the uh, director. Of the rec innovation, lab here at san diego miramar college, we are a business incubator. We are a new business incubator. Right now we're totally virtual. And, um. We're. For those of you don't know what an incubator, is though i think most people in the room probably do. We help startups. To. Start, we help companies, to start. And, we help them to learn how to become, high growth. High. Profitability. Type businesses, and very very often what we found is that the missing, component. In most startups. What differentiates. A small business from a startup, very very often. Is technology. And. We have, a focus, in the wreck, in our um. In our program, of. Helping. Underrepresented. Founders, people who otherwise wouldn't have access, to these kinds of resources. Get those resources. Learn how to interject. Technology. Into their business ideas, so that they can, have businesses, that are um very high growth, and can be um. The kind of businesses that create wealth, and jobs, and all the things that we're looking for uh, to achieve, so with that, um, i'll actually introduce, you to alexis. Who um has a very similar. Uh very. Similar, uh mission. And. Uh to to the rec and i'll let you talk about your program.
Alexis, Yourself. Perfect thank you tanya. Hi my name is alexis vinova, and i'm from the business partner i'm a business partner specialist, i'm sending a workforce partnership. I'm in the business services, department. Um so, tony and i originally came together. For kind of what tanya said. I, actually go and do outreach, to businesses. And talk about, how, we can possibly, create opportunities, for those underrepresented. Folks that connie was talking about. But more specifically, when i started talking with tanya. She told me about the incubator, and what the focus was, in. Creating opportunities, for underrepresented. Individuals, and entrepreneurship. And we at the sunday workforce partnership, have a couple of programs, to do that. Focused, in tech our tech hire program and our isa, program. So i think, from, the from the moment we spoke tony and i we knew. We had to bring those two energies, together to, look to create more opportunities, in those two areas. So i am most appreciative, to the rec team. Um to our tech hierarchies, isa, teams. Um i am motivated, by this event being the first one. Um but also excited what the results will be and how we're going to continue our work. I think there's no time like now, to continue that work and to look at how we can create those opportunities. And then hopefully more events like this will come from that and create, more, opportunities. For every one of you. Thank you to the student founders, 18 businesses, is pretty amazing. Um, and then again thank you to the meet to the teams that are a part of this. We dedicated, a lot of time the last two weeks to coordinating, this. Um, lori, adrian nadira, and to tony and your team, just been amazing. So, thank you so much and it's most appreciated. Um and now, i will introduce, yadara, o'conn, to talk a little bit about the techhire. Program. And you dare just so you know uh when you when you do come in you will be muted so you'll have to unmute yourself. Um, at the bottom of your screen. Okay thank you so much thank you alexis, for the beautiful introduction. I mean thank you uh for this opportunity, i feel the same way i think it's a great. Um time to to bring together, our organizations. And, our coders, and hopefully we can make great matches, today. But i just wanted to talk to you about tech hire real quick. So takaya, is a nationwide. Movement. That aims to level the playing field for tech jobs in the city of san diego. And recently, we've added the city of chula vista as well. And the purpose of takkeir. Is to help underrepresented. Populations. Begin their career, occupations. Related to the information, and communication. Technologies. So that includes web developers, data analysts, you know um, we have. Uh. Social media specialists, uh graphic designers. Everything. Our participants. What makes us a little bit different, is that our participants. Receive, access to career counseling. Resume, assistance. We can also help interview. Preparation. For interviewing, skills. And we also have educational, opportunities. So participants, can upscale their resume. And our goal, is that, these participants. Are going to impress you so much in their internships, that. When they're done, you're not going to be able to want to work without him and that's what we hope to do in tech hire. To just bring businesses. And people who are um. Integrating, into the technology, field bring them together, so they can have. A good, long-term. Employment, afterwards. So. With all that said i'm going to pass it to adrian, and she's going to talk to you about the isa, program. Thank you. Thanks sadera. My name is adrian and i'm with the isa, program, at the san diego workforce partnership, so, yadara, and alexis, are close colleagues, of mine.
Um I just wanted to share a little bit about what an isa. Is it's a income, sharing agreement. And this is actually a new program that the san diego workforce partnership, launched in partnership, with ucsb. Who is our training partner, who. Essentially, offers, these 9 to 15 month tech certificates. And things like front-end development. User experience, design. Java programming. And what the workforce, partnership, does is we come in and we provide those wrap around services, that. Yadura, was mentioning. A lot of career, counseling. A lot of job search support. So we're really taking the two strengths of these organizations. And putting them together. We currently, have approximately, 100 students and graduates in our program. Um. And similar, to the rec labs mission, of really empowering. Um underrepresented. Founders. We really want the isa, opportunity. To be open to folks who are also underrepresented. In tech and otherwise, wouldn't be able to uh, to navigate. Into, the field themselves. So. What the isa, actually is, it's a no, upfront, cost tuition. So, if someone comes into the program and they take, they take a certificate, with ucsd. They essentially don't pay anything, unless they, earn at least forty thousand dollars from leaving our program. So we're making, this, tech educational, opportunity, accessible, to populations. Who otherwise, wouldn't be able to access, it in the first place. Um. It's a really unique opportunity. And. We're actually starting our recruitment, for fall 2020, coming up for database, management. User experience, design. And java programming. So please if you know of anybody, any potential students, who, are considering, a career change, who want to level up in their tech skills that's that. I'm going to drop some contact information, in the chat right now so you can reach out to me, and we're also looking for mentors, for our students, so, i, would love to touch base with anybody, who. Is interested, in mentoring some of our incredible, students. And with that i think i i passed back to tanya, who's going to talk about the logistics. Of today. Thank you so much adrian i appreciate, that, yes um, so i i. I just i also wanted to say, we'll. We'll. Also be putting our information. In the chat, so if um. If uh, anybody, who has any questions wants to reach out to us please do please do we're we're here for you we're here, uh. We're here to provide resources, for you to answer questions for you to help you to succeed. And um. There uh, if anybody uh. Also uh. Is having any issues, with, their uh. With their uh. Accessing, the screens or seeing any, of the um. You know, seeing any of the components, please let us know we can um we can get you paired up, with one of our our tech people to get you some help and get you going, so i i i'd like to now uh.

Hi everyone i'm isaac javed, i'm the vice president of the entrepreneur society, at san diego state and i'm the ceo and founder of bridge. It's safe to say we've all exchanged contact, information with new people after meeting them, none of us want to go through the tedious ritual of going to each social media platform, and adding someone's information. We often only connect with one or two platforms, when meeting someone and have no organization, to what accounts we have and what accounts we still need. Bridge allows its users to display their own personal brand, and exchange, multiple accounts, instantaneously. Using qr and nfc technology. This can be professional, or personal. The user can choose what accounts they would like to share, and easily exchange, information with anyone they meet, they can also display the information, as a url, that they can post anywhere or forward to anyone. Bridge will also keep the contacts, the user ads in an organized list so they can simply look up any of their connections. And see what channels they're available on. And my name is michael gustowicz, and i'm the. Cto, of ridge, i'm looking forward we are in need of an android developer, to parse our existing, react native code, to help with cross-platform. Development. As we gain a larger user base we will be transitioning. Away, from google's firebase, service for authentication. And database, management. So we are looking for a developer, skilled, in these areas to create a proprietary. In-house, back-end, management, system. Thank you. Wonderful, thank you thank you so much uh. Bridge, team, uh. Again, if uh, if you want to go into the breakout rooms with bridge make sure to uh write that down. So we now have um. Vadant, is going to be talking to us a little bit about. Med alert, med. Alert. And vadon, if you are speaking you are unmute. Oh no i was i was just waiting for the screenshot, but yeah. Okay, hi welcome to team medler, my name is vidatnahar. And i'm the ceo. A few months, ago, one of our founders close family friend passed away, due to an accidental, error caused by an overworked, nurse in a nursing facility. This is why we created medlerd. A task delegation, app that lets nurses, create, and delegate, tasks, in real time and on the go. In medler, we let nurses streamline day-to-day, activities. And improve facility, teamwork. Decreasing, chances of any errors, and stress. And thus optimizing, the resources. We let them view all the tasks they have for a certain day, and prepare them to deal with spontaneous, ones. With our delegation, feature. Aimers can delegate a certain task with the click of a button. By providing the management, level with analytics. We reveal the weak points of the facility. During these trying times with covet 19. Nurses are the unsung heroes of the country. And medler wants to help them save american, lives by making their life easier. We are looking for a software developer, for mobile and server applications. The tasks include implementing, features, and functionalities. On both the mobile, and server site, including, advanced, features. Such as encryptions. And architecture. You will get an opportunity, to work on regulatory, requirements. Such as hipaa. The app needs to allow its users to be in sync with each other, like a social media, app. Allowing them to work together to complete the tasks. In terms of the workflow, designs, we have a storyboard, we have storyboarded. Each feature of our app, in-depth. And from there we created an adobe, xd mockup. Providing, you with a detailed, outline, of its aesthetic. And functionalities. Thank you and we are excited to see you in our zoom breakout. Room.

But don't worry, you are not alone. 40 percent, of teens and twenty five percent of young adults are actually afraid to drive on the road, they are unable to think quickly on their feet and use their judgment, on familiar, situations. For these nervous new drivers, virtue road is the perfect, answer. It is a cost-effective. Lifelike, driving, simulator. That uses virtual reality, to give an immersive, experience, for the driver to practice. Using realistic, vehicle components. Birch road allows the consumer, to learn how to drive in the comfort of their own home. These teenage, and young adult new drivers, can practice any driving scenario, alongside, instructions, guiding them, in a real life location. Without having to risk their safety. In order to create our mvp, we need help programming, our software, for the simulator. As well as creating the vr app, that allows the user to connect to their vr headset. And track their driving progress. We plan to program, our software, in unity game engine, and create the real-life location. Using a 3d mapping software, such as mapbox. We are looking for software developers, who would like to help us develop, our virtual, reality, simulator. As well as the companion, mobile app, to help these teenage, and young adult new drivers, gain the confidence, they need to get onto the road again.

When a student gets in trouble, they are not helped only investigated. From contacting, multiple schools we have found that this is a widespread, need. If a student doesn't have an advisor for these situations. It causes a lot of additional challenges, for the students which can have an impact on their schooling. And their gpa. And which can lead to multiple different things. For graduate schools later etc. Varus advising, solves the problems, we help defend, students, and advise students when they get in trouble. We can reach a very large. Audience, because we are virtual based which means we can make a great, great impact in students, lives, not only in california. But also across the united states. We are looking specifically. For help with user experience. And user interface, technology, on our website. Since we are a tech and virtual based company. And our website, is the main, go-to.

We have, i believe it's, jayden will be speaking on start smart. Is that correct. Uh no sahil, and khmer, actually. Apologize. Apologize, uh sahil, and kabir take it away when you're ready. Okay. Hi i'm saaho and i'm the cmo, of star smart. No one wants to be that person who as soon as they get their permit and license get into an accident. Fortunately, new drivers will be able to drive without risk with the help of start smart. Start smart is an online platform, that connects new drivers with the passenger, side breaking cars from driving schools, allowing new drivers to rent these cars and practice safely when not accompanied, by a certified, driving instructor. Startsmart, is an app that will show you a selection of driver's ed cars with passenger side brake system, which are great for new drivers who are more prone to making mistakes on the road. The driver, friendly cars will be available for rent from various local driving schools near you making it easy to start learning and getting on the road. Often, new drivers go too fast or don't stop in time resulting in tickets and crashes. However, an experienced, driver sitting in the passenger seat will be able to ensure the safety of the members in the car, and help accelerate, their learning. Hi, i'm khabir sheth, the chief technical, officer, of start smart, and we are requesting, a developer, who can help create an application, for start smart on ios and android. Also, we would like for our coder to help refine our current website. And start allowing new drivers, to rent driver's ed cars, please join us in our zoom room so we can further discuss start smart's current needs regarding our software, and get to work, thank you. Thank you. Wonderful thank you guys so much, and um, last but not least, we do have um, off-grid, technologies. Yeah this is elon from awkwardtech. Hi. Hello. Uh so, raj are you screen sharing. Looks like he. Is. Troubles with the screen sharing there. I don't have it up. You don't all right no worries. I'll just jump right in. All right so we're off grid technologies, and we created the off-grid charger, or og charger for short. The og charger is a portable wilderness, charger that solves a problem that we as campers and backpackers, encounter, every time we go on a track. Our devices, always run out of power because the power banks we bring are quickly drained, and the portable solar chargers aren't reliable, enough to supply on-demand, power. To solve this problem, our patent-pending, design incorporates, four different charging methods. A water wheel solar panel hand crank and wall input. And an integrated battery to ensure reliable, charging anytime. Anywhere. And finally, here at off-grid tech our beliefs, center around giving back to the global community, and the great outdoors. To accomplish, our mission, we'd allocate, 10, of our profits, towards donating og chargers to communities, lacking power. Allowing our customers, to camp with confidence, and pay it forward. In terms of developer, support, we're asking for, uh, two different types of developers. The first one is someone who's intimately, familiar, with squarespace. Um because that's the website we're using, um. To eventually sell our chargers, on. Um so we would also like someone, uh hopefully, familiar, with, um like e-commerce. Um. And what they can do with their. Aside from that we're looking for a web developer. Um. Not a web developer someone who's familiar with um, ios, and android, apps. Someone who can help us develop, an app for a phone that can pair to the charger.
Uh And remotely. Uh so like the user can see like, how charged it is the the rate of recharging. Um if the the river's strong enough to turn the water wheel, factors like that. So those are the two different types, um, so if you're interested please join us in the breakout room. Thank you very much. I'm sure there's an interesting story how that ended up, um, in the car but. We it worked right we made it work uh, yeah, we always figuring, it out right, okay wonderful. So, that's it that's the last of the of the uh of the student pitches we're right on time, uh excellent job everybody's, staying within. Their uh allocated, time limit. Uh.
