Like Nest, but for your driveway.  Brilliantile is a smart landscaping tile that removes snow from walkways and driveways automatically.  The team built custom hardware and software that connects the tile to local weather reports.  The team also built an iOS app to control the tile when you aren't at home and set schedules.

The Fry Guys

The Fry Guys are on a mission to make fries the hero! A food truck company that makes crazy awesome variations on fries (try the dessert fries).  They are hoping to franchise the company so that Fry Guys can be all over the US and sell their custom fry sauces in grocery stores.
