Ecommerce StoreOnly a few decades ago, businesses were focused on optimizing their brick and mortar shops.

JET Cable” – is a TESLA among cables, as they like to call it.
It was strange to us, how in 2017, having all the materials and technology we are still facing the problem of torn cables.
But then we realized, it’s simply a cash cow for the big companies.
KevlabraidSo we came up with an idea of making a cable, that will last a lifetime. Consolidating all our team’s skills an experience in engineering and design, we came up with a technology that we call “KevlaBraid”.
We use Aramid, also known as “KEVLAR” to reinforce the braided nylon wire, making the cable ultimately durable.
 
The Jet Cable features a strong Neodymium magnetic connection, the same type of connection that is used in MacBooks, making it easy to connect by simply holding a cable next to the magnetic tip that is inserted in your device. We have fully tested our product, and we confidently claim that the Jet cable is the World’s Strongest Magnetic Cable,” Jet Co. LABS spokesman said.
In order for the device to become available to the public, a crowdfunding campaign has been started to help produce and develop the JET cable.

Women Entrepreneurs $4 Million Global Competition

Women Entrepreneurs $4 Million Global Competition is initiated by M12, Microsoft Corp.’s venture fund, in collaboration with the EQT Ventures fund and SVB Financial Group, on Thursday, July 26, 2018 announced the Female Founders Competition, seeking to accelerate funding for top women-led startups focused on enterprise technology solutions.

Women Entrepreneurs $4 Million Global Competition

Women Entrepreneurs
Women entrepreneurs receive a disproportionately small amount of venture funding, with only 2.2 percent of the total invested in 2017 going to women-founded startups. Studies have shown that investing in companies founded by women delivers significantly higher returns than the market average. By shining a light on this highly talented, but underfunded group of entrepreneurs, M12 and its partners seek to not only fund innovative female entrepreneurs, but to spotlight the funding gap that exists and the benefits of more equitable distribution of capital.
“We formed M12 to make smart bets on innovative people and their ideas, and the Female Founders Competition is an extension of that mandate,” said Peggy Johnson, executive vice president of Business Development at Microsoft. “This isn’t about checking a box; it’s an opportunity to remind the VC community that investing in women is more than just good values, it’s good business.”
“The EQT Ventures team is all about backing founders with the ambition, drive and vision to build a global success story,” said Alastair Mitchell, partner and investment advisor at EQT Ventures. “This competition reflects this and offers women entrepreneurs a great platform from which to launch their business, providing them with access to capital and mentorship. It also raises awareness of the funding gap between male and female founders, and the EQT Ventures team wants to play an active role in bridging that gap.”
