1. World View Enterprises

World View Enterprises

Founded: 2013

Also honored in:

“We deliver valuable insight to enterprises, agencies, and individuals via two primary business segments: Stratollite un-crewed flight systems and Explorer human spaceflight systems.

The Stratollite is an unprecedented un-crewed stratospheric vehicle that delivers payloads to the near-space environment with revolutionary control capabilities. The vehicle provides navigational steering over large distances and persistent flight over specified areas of interest for days, weeks, and months on end, all at a fraction of the cost of comparable technologies like geo-stationary satellites, LEO satellites, and high-altitude drones. Stratollites are already in operation today, with applications spanning remote sensing, communications, weather, and research.

The Explorer human spaceflight experience is under development and commercial flights begin in 2024, offering private citizens a comfortable, safe, and perspective-changing voyage to the edge of space via a high-altitude balloon. These flights will depart from 7 locations around the world including Grand Canyon, Great Barrier Reef, Serengeti, Aurora Borealis, Amazonia, Great Wall of China, and Giza Pyramids.”

3. Pyx Health

Pyx Health

Founded: 2017

Also honored in:

“Pyx Health was started by successful healthcare professionals with over 40 years of experience in healthcare technology. Pyx was started through a personal journey with a family member suffering from a mental health illness. Witnessing our loved one go from stable to high-risk in six months was the impetus for Pyx Health. This is the second healthcare IT company we have worked on together as a team; the success of the first one inspired us to “get the band back together” and do it again.

Pyx Health leverages mobile technology to connect health plan members with their closest family and friends to support them throughout their healthcare journey. We harness the power of family and friends and chatbot technology to provide support that is informed, relevant, and non-clinical to encourage self-management and drive improved health outcomes for users. We also generate real-time alerts when a patient is accessing emergency, urgent or crisis care. While other technology falls short as a substitute for human connections, our technology uses these combined forces (chatbot and family/friends) to engage and maximize the power of influencers in the members’ lives.”
