This week we want to showcase two sectors making big technology waves in this awesome city of Houston, TX: Energy & Healthcare. In the past few years, we’ve seen some amazing startups come out of Houston’s accelerators, hospitals, and universities.
AMS: Autonomous Marine Systems
AMS or Autonomous Marine Systems was part of SURGE Ventures, a Houston-based leading seed fund and mentor-driven accelerator that identifies, invests in, and enables entrepreneurs who are solving the world’s energy problems..
“AMS is a marine data services company based in the USA. Using fleets of sailing drones, AMS collects and transmits hydrographic data across the surface of the globe. The world’s first self-righting catamaran (dubbed the Datamaran) is the backbone of AMS’ network. The Datamaran offers a combination of cost savings, performance, reliability, and networking capabilities unmatched by any other vehicle on the planet.”
Aleberry has had the honor of working with SURGE for a couple years, and we’re getting ready for SURGE 4 (next week!). We love these guys and the amazing companies they are constantly nurturing. For Aleberry, SURGE Day always feels like watching our children graduate college – completely ridiculous, but it really is a family.
For presentation designs during SURGE’s Demo Day, “SURGE DAY”, we design the pitch decks to visually tell a story as the company speaks to a room of investors, corporate clients, and mentors.
Because SURGE produces some pretty high-end tech companies, many of the decks need to explain the technology and problem with visual aids. Most of our strategy involves taking the really complex formulas & technologies in these engineers minds and breaking it down in an easy to understand way.
Energizing Health (Houston, TX)
Energizing Health is a healthcare conference & showcase in Houston, TX.
“25 digital health entrepreneurs pitch their disruptive health innovations to the member institutions of the world’s largest medical center and to a NASA funded research institute. Innovators will be presenting to executives from MD Anderson, Texas Children’s Hospital, Memorial Hermann, Methodist Hospital, Harris Health System, and to the NASA funded National Space Biomedical Research Institute (NSBRI).”
Aleberry’s approach to Energizing Health’s presentation design & strategy was closer to a corporate & conference look and feel rather than a TEDx / Pitch Day style.
This conference’s presentation design is more minimal and focuses on introducing various speakers throughout the day. We wanted the design to integrate the new TMC (Texas Medical Center) facilities in Houston and show off all the great sponsors.
Each Pitch Deck Tuesday will showcase a startup, discuss our process with both storytelling and presentation strategy, and showcase a few of our pitch deck or investor deck designs.
