Startups - HAT innovation class of 2017
Bear Health Technologies is the creator of a private medical record called the BEAR in Canada. They sell these devices to independent medical examination companies, who today struggle to gather and organise medical records about their patients because those records are of variable quality and come from multiple different sources, making the IME process inefficient. BEARs are built on the HAT, which gives those devices increased security, more trustworthy infrastructure, and (critically) the ability to run optimisation and NLP algorithms over private medical data without exposing or risking that information.
Mark and Maven builds virtual assistants that proactively source under-represented minorities and give them seed capital to start new companies. In an attempt to address the demographic bias in startup funding availability, the company aims to find promising startup founders from under-represented communities by reaching out to them, instead of by asking them for an application - a task which can be very difficult at scale. Mark and Maven human user accounts are built on HAT microservers so that the personal data they collect isn't owned or controlled by the company, and so that a more dynamic, valuable set of information about its human users can be accessed if needed.
Good-Loop is an online advertising company that convinces people to watch an ad by giving 50% of the proceeds to charity.

Good-Loop uses HATs to offer a user account to some of the people who watch their ads, giving them an ethical way to target advertising to them without compromising the privacy of their personal information.
