GreyScout is a SaaS platform for online brand protection, dedicated to safeguarding brands against the digital threats of grey market activities and counterfeit selling. Trusted by industry leaders, GreyScout empowers brands to detect, verify, and enforce against grey market vendors and counterfeiters with unmatched precision.
Grey market trade is a growing concern that often overlaps with the trade of fake goods. According to the OECD, it accounts for 3.3% of global annual trade, equivalent to a staggering €825 billion per year. Grey market activity continues to thrive due to substantial price differentials for high-end, sought-after items and as well as everyday essentials. Furthermore, the rapid growth of the e-commerce sector, valued at approximately $6.3 trillion, has been further accelerated by the widespread adoption of online shopping and the impact of COVID-19. This inadvertently fueled the expansion of the grey market selling as consumers increasingly turned to online retail.
GreyScout’s focus lies in addressing the challenges posed by the surge in suspected bad actors and unverified sellers. Through reseller verification and product authentication, the platform automatically removes infringing product listings from the customers’ view. This reduces the manual efforts of e-commerce and legal teams in tracking and boasts an impressive 98% success rate on key customers’ enforcement and IP portals submissions.
Furthermore, GreyScout’s streamlined onboarding process significantly reduces setup time, transforming what used to take weeks or even months into a mere matter of hours.
Powering skills-based organisations
Spotted Zebra provides a workforce management platform that allows large enterprises to identify skills gaps within their workforces and fill these gaps through hiring, succession planning or reskilling existing employees.
The skills crisis is one of the great challenges of our time, according to the World Economic Forum. The workplace is changing rapidly, with many skills and roles becoming obsolete while critical new ones are emerging at a rate too fast to fill. 77% of businesses report skills shortages and the WEF estimates that failing to address skills gaps could cost businesses in G20 countries alone some $11.5 trillion in lost growth in the next decade.
But while businesses struggle to fill the skills shortages, there are millions of talented individuals whose skills are being overlooked as they lack the credentials or experience traditionally used by recruiters to determine hiring success.
Spotted Zebra’s platform enables businesses to eschew outmoded job requirements and instead match individuals with opportunities based on the best indicator of role success – skills.
Spotted Zebra’s unique blend of AI, assessment science and human expertise allows organisations to determine the precise blend of skills required for individual roles and then identify people with those skills. This widens the available talent pool while ensuring that successful candidates deliver higher job performance than via traditional recruitment channels.
Spotted Zebra also helps organizations improve their reskilling programmes by matching vacant roles with employees whose jobs are being downsized. This improves talent retention, employee engagement, and dramatically cuts costs.
The animal health data platform
The platform’s core mission is to combat the increased resistance to anti-parasiticides and reduce the unnecessary reliance on worm treatments by the agriculture sector, as a whole. Micron Agritech is also keen to protect the limited medicinal arsenal currently in place to combat these diseases while monitoring the prevalence of resistance on farms in Ireland and the UK. The first product, the Micron Kit allows veterinarians to conduct on-site, rapid parasite testing on animals using their mobile phones, delivering results in minutes.
The team believes computer vision and rapid diagnostics will drastically reduce the time, cost and resources expended on dosing methodologies while amplifying farm efficiency. This will also become a rich and valuable data set that can be used to leverage unique insights into animal health trends.
We look forward to working with Daniel, Tara, Sean and the Micron team.
“Our goal is to make our platform accessible to vets across the globe, starting with penetration across the Irish and UK markets, which will combat the build up of medication resistance, while giving farmers
and vets tools to monitor animal health, improve the lives of their animals while increasing productivity.”

The computer vision platform for in-store analytics
EVERYANGLE’s platform uses computer vision to analyse CCTV footage for events of interest, without the need for human review. With the number of CCTV cameras deployed globally set to double from 1 billion to 2 billion in the next 3 years, enterprises are increasingly surrounded by oceans of video. However, less than 0.1% of CCTV video captured is ever reviewed by a human being, due to time and cost factors. EVERYANGLE’s unique platform analyses video footage rapidly and cost-effectively at-scale to help retailers and hospitality operators gain rich in-store customer insights, reduce loss and optimise their operations.
We look forward to working with David and the Everyangle team to transform in-store analytics.
“With the number of CCTV cameras set to grow by 100% globally, our platform is becoming ever-more critical to ensuring retailers and hospitality operators can leverage at scale all of their video data to improve the in-store customer experience, reduce theft and fraud, and deliver real operational cost savings. Having had a positive response from the market to date, particularly in the USA, we look forward to accelerating our sales, implementing our product roadmap, and growing our team over the coming months.” – David Owen
The performance data analytics platform
Conjura offers an analytics and data science platform for e-commerce merchants. The company is pioneering the next generation of e-commerce data analytics by equipping businesses of all sizes with enhanced visibility over their entire operations on a single cloud-based platform, as opposed to multiple and disconnected tools. Traditionally, e-commerce data analysis has been confined to one section of operations, such as marketing or customer retention.
Conjura’s real-time analysis is overcoming this limitation by combining data from fulfilment, warehousing, and supply chain sources, with online/offline sales and marketplace transactions and customer metrics.
The new, integrated approach to data analysis pioneered by Conjura provides automated insights and recommendations across every aspect of e-commerce to accelerate overall business performance.
The home for your meetings
The team at Clearword developed a vision to make meetings and remote working healthier. They looked at new and existing products and realised today’s meeting experience is disjointed and frustrating, whether it’s setting up a call with someone, trying to remember what was discussed, or catching up with meetings you’ve missed.
With that in mind, they set about to build Clearword in 2021 with the lofty goal of unifying the meeting experience at every stage of the meeting lifecycle: before, during, and after the meeting.
They are redesigning that meeting experience, based on the tools you use and love. Plan, schedule and prepare for meetings in a truly collaborative manner, and have those meetings transcribed and automatically summarised into searchable and shareable meeting minutes. All your meetings are in one easily accessible and searchable central meetings library.
We are proud to be partnering with David, and the team to support their vision to empower remote work and improve meetings.
Giving developers privacy tools to launch with one-click from their cloud environment – significantly reducing the barrier of entry to PETs.
It is no secret that data privacy is a major challenge for organisations and that privacy tools for developers are still early.
The newly popularized domain of privacy-enhancing technologies (PETs), from homomorphic encryption to secure enclaves may play a crucial role in the future of this space, and we believe the Oblivious team is well placed to develop these.
The team at Oblivious are already thought leaders in academia through their work with the UN & Oxford University, and Robert (CEO & Co-Founder) shares his thoughts;
“Too often when we think of security and privacy, it feels like another cost that needs to be absorbed by data owners. A technical bureaucracy of sorts. However, what the team and I have found is quite the opposite; projects, collaborations, and partnerships that were previously redlined are now getting the go-ahead!”
We are all excited to be partnering with Robert and Jack to support their vision to empower developers everywhere to deliver real privacy in the digital age.
Emergency braking systems can only measure approximately 40 meters ahead or one second reaction time at high speeds.
Currently, there are 1,350,000 road deaths every year, 50m injuries at an annual cost of over $2 trillion. In the US alone car accidents cost 2% of GDP. 94% of those accidents are caused by human error, errors current accident prevention systems cannot stop. Today’s emergency braking systems can only measure approximately 40m ahead or 1 second reaction time at highway speeds. To perceive, predict, and prevent accidents you need to 10x the capability of these systems and Provizio’s Accident Prevention Technology Platform combines proprietary vision sensors and machine learning to do just that. The radar backboned, AI on-the-edge sensor suite with ultra-long-range and foresight capabilities can prevent collisions at high speed and in all weather conditions.
“One point three five road deaths to zero drives everything we do at Provizio. We have put together an incredible team that is growing daily. AI is the future of automotive accident prevention and Provizio 5D radars with AI on-the-edge are the first step towards that goal.” Barry Lunn
Car safety focus has until now largely been on a reactive basis or with prescriptive safety measures, these merely minimise damage to passengers, they do not stop the crash from occurring. To prevent accidents advanced driver-assistance systems (ADAS) need to have greatly increased range and object discrimination capability to see danger long before they currently do.
