The tech startup analyses your lifestyle, vitals, blood and DNA to provide you with truly unique insights, advice and monitoring so you can live a happier, healthier, fitter life.

By streamlining processes and enabling teacher development, MyFlo hopes to improve the quality of education and outcomes for our students while saving teachers much needed time.

Danny and Alex are two enthusiastic college students who aren’t waiting to finish their studies before setting up their own tech company. Phactr’s platform (which is currently unnamed) is a queue-management and analytics tool, that enables barbershops and hairdressers to streamline their workflow, process bookings, and aggregate all of their data into one place. For their customers it allows them to book through the system and save valuable time, rather than phoning or walking in.
