The nonprofit Girls in Tech has named 10 female-led startups that will compete for cash and other prizes for the “next great female-founded startup.”The sixth annual competition will take place in San Francisco on Wednesday, October 18 in an event dubbed the Amplify Women’s Pitch Night Competition.Girls in Tech says the female founder-only pitch competition is the largest of its kind in the world, bringing together top tech leaders, entrepreneurs, and investors.The half-day competition will take place at Zendesk.Software as a Service (SaaS) Platform for access, energy, and automation management and control.The event’s judges come from companies like Walmart Labs, Autodesk, Gap, Silicon Valley Bank, RocketSpace, and more.
Connected home software startup Stratis announced a new partnership with Honeywell that will see it use the manufacturer’s thermostats as part of its apartment-management platform.BI Intelligence spoke with Stratis CEO Felicite Moorman about how this new agreement will impact the company's future, as well as its wider strategy of treating the connected home as a business-to-business (B2B) space, rather than taking the more common business-to-consumer (B2C) approach.Stratis is also integrated with lease management platforms including RealPage and Yardi to make it easier to transfer and revoke control of devices from tenants.The company’s solutions are ideal for high turnover properties like college dormitories, where students change units regularly and can often lose keys or neglect to adjust the thermostat when they go away long term.By installing connected thermostats, property managers at colleges can make sure that heating units are kept at maintenance temperatures during winter break, for instance, so that energy costs are minimized, but there’s no risk of pipes bursting.And smart locks can let maintenance staff enter units easily should the need arise without requiring dozens of keys or an insecure master.
Abra, a global currency wallet that was the belle of the early Bitcoin ball, has just added 20 cryptocurrencies and 50 fiat currencies, a feature that allows you to top up and send cash and cryptocurrencies from inside the wallet.“Bitcoin, Ether, Litecoin, Ripple, Bitcoin Cash, Ethereum Classic, Dash, Zcash, Bitcoin Gold, Stellar Lumens, DigiByte, Dogecoin, Golem, OmiseGO, Qtum, Augur, Status, Stratis, Vertcoin and 0x are the initial 20 cryptocurrencies,” the company wrote.“Abra developed a first-of-its kind smart contract investing platform that uses bitcoin technology to allow users to hold exposure to cryptocurrencies and fiat currencies on a smartphone much the same way Fidelity allows you to buy an ETF in the old world,” said founder Bill Barhydt.“With this model, we can enable exposure to any asset — Abra has only started with crypto and fiat.”The system allows you to convert between currencies with “no transaction fees, at any time with no limitations.” It seems to work similarly to ShapeShift, another solution that allows nearly instant conversions between currencies.There are also a few tricks up Abra’s sleeve, including the clever use of smart contracts to reduce the volatility associated with currency trades.

The U.S. Army Combat Capabilities Development Command's Army Research Laboratory -- the Army's corporate research laboratory known as ARL -- and the Lockheed Martin Corporation entered into a five-year cooperative agreement, titled "Self-Assembly of Nanostructures for Tunable Materials."Officials said the collaborative effort leverages a current tri-service synthetic biology Department of Defense Applied Research for Advancement of Priorities program, the Army's Institute for Collaborative Biotechnologies and the Army's Open Campus framework to co-locate academic, Army and industrial personnel in regional technology hubs of Boston, Massachusetts, and Austin, Texas.According to Dr. Dimitra Stratis-Cullum, ARL research chemist and an Essential Research Program manager, the commitment to invest in synthetic biology in the Army and DOD along with ARL's Open Campus business model helped to catalyze the collaboration."Soon after, the Office of the Secretary of Defense established a tri-service DOD Applied Research for Advancement of Priorities program titled 'Synthetic Biology for Military Environments.'Under the agreement, ARL and Lockheed Martin will develop rapid prototyping methods using bio-production and self-assembly to create the building blocks of novel materials for defense optical technology and protective coatings.According to the researchers, the research is intended to advance Army goals for the use of biological systems for on-demand synthesis of materials and embedding biological products into materials for advanced specialty paints for corrosion and protection, light weight, high performance optics for sensing on drones and production and repair of parts and systems for expeditionary forces through simpler, greener and rapid adaptation.
