LoveLane is an AI based couples coaching app. Our vision is to help couples create deep, strong and healthy relationships. With LoveLane, couples will become more mindful of their relationship by focusing on the positive aspects of their partnership. They will strengthen their bond by talking about questions they have never thought about and receiving new inspiration for joint activities and dates. They will also be able to solve relationship issues through our self-learning courses or by talking to one of our couple’s therapist. We believe that self-care was yesterday, relationship care is next.

OM-LoT (Optical Micromanipulation Lab on Tip)’s mission is to make cancer diagnosis and treatment options fast, accessible and non-invasive, to reduce the difficulties for cancer patients by shortening the time of the diagnosis and screening process to less than a day while being almost 10X cheaper.
At OM-LoT, we are developing a device which makes the process of cancer cell detection and stratification, faster and simpler. In our process, cancer related cells are collected from patient’s blood sample. These cells are then characterized and arranged into subgroups based on their unique optical properties and by means of our propriety optical spectroscopy device. Using our AI based analysis on the correlation of cancer cell subgroups with their therapeutic effects, the correct therapy is then identified and suggested to the doctors. https://om-lot.tech/
