Deals to Watch
Actipulse Neuroscience has developed a proprietary neuromodulation device to treat major depressive disorder. The company began by offering its device for in-hospital use but now intends to bring the treatment into individual’s homes. The at-home device is a simple headpiece that the user wears twice a day over a time period to treat their depression. The device transmits information to the user’s doctor, who can monitor the treatments to ensure there are no issues or side effects. Adrien Chatillon founded Actipulse Neuroscience in June 2019.
Baby Barista is a Keurig-like machine that helps parents make formula bottles for their babies. The elegant machine can dispense bottles at precise temperatures and sizes with the touch of a button, either on the front of the machine or through the Baby Barista mobile app. It’s a high-quality, elegant product that meets an obvious need for parents, and Baby Barista’s founder is an excellent spokesperson with a very compelling origin story. Cara Armstrong founded Baby Barista in October 2014.
Everybody Water sells clean water in cartons instead of plastic bottles, donating a portion of its profits to nonprofits working to give more people access to clean, running water. We reached out to co-founder Kimberly Reilly to learn about the inspiration for the company and its goals for the future.
