Bear Health Technologies

Bear Health Technologies is the creator of a private medical record called the BEAR in Canada.

Mark and Maven

Mark and Maven builds virtual assistants that proactively source under-represented minorities and give them seed capital to start new companies.

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.
