Q and A with TeleCarib Labs of St Lucia

Tell us about TeleCarib Labs?

TeleCarib Labs, Inc. is an ecosystem development company focused on making St. Lucia the startup capital of the Caribbean. We provide collaborative workspaces and private offices, cutting-edge skill development programs, and access to a thriving global community of professionals.

One of the programs we’re really excited about is Startup St. Lucia — the island’s national startup accelerator program which we’re launching with support from the Government of Saint Lucia. We’re welcoming innovators not just from St. Lucia, but from around the world, to help them scale from the Caribbean and beyond. We will begin accepting application in early 2019.

My team would also be upset if I didn’t mention our indoor precision farm — which will be operational towards the end of this year. There’s an education program scaffolded to the farm so we’ll have an opportunity to raise awareness around food security, import substitution, and climate resilience.

My First Project on Github - WPF C# Drawing App

(From wikipedia - WPF attempts to provide a consistent programming model for building applications and separates the user interface from business logic. It resembles similar XML-oriented object models, such as those implemented in XUL and SVG.)My canvas events were not firing…

SportFitz is Field Testing Brain Impact Wearable in Trinidad

Canadian StartUp SportFitz entered the $150 billion wearables market in 2017 to address the #1 undiagnosed health challenge in the world, CONCUSSION. More than 90% of brain impacts go unnoticed, undiagnosed and untreated, the result is fatal.

In response to Rowan’s Law, the first concussion law in Canada mandating protocols to protect youth in sport, SportFitz designed a 1” wearable technology to stream brain impact and biometric data in real-time to notify the user of impacts to the brain and physical metrics before, during and after an impact.

SportFitz uses artificial intelligence with real-time measurements of the location, direction and force of impact, big data analytics and embedded organizational protocols to predict the probability of a concussion and recommend immediate action.

Our goal is to make it mandatory for all youth under the age of 18 to wear our device for all sports and to be notified in real-time when their brain receives an impact, report it, diagnose it and tr…
