EnXray's low-energy X-ray (LEXR) technology sterilises material and offers low-cost onsite sterilisation, avoiding the need for plastic instruments to be shipped back from a hospital or doctor's surgery to the supplier for sterilisation. LEXRs penetrate up to 10cm in air and several layers of plastic, which means they can sterilise small batches of most medical grade polymers, eliminating time-consuming and costly logistics. EnXray is seeing commercial interest from OEM medical device manufacturers, with several reference customers committed.
Book Your Lifestyle, a 'booking.com'-style market place for the hair and beauty industry, was founded by David Smith and Chris Houry in early 2015 after identifying an opportunity in the hair and beauty services market. This is a huge (£4 billion) market, yet is largely stuck in the pre-Internet era, with most appointments still being made by telephone and salon owners facing frustration from unsold slots, no-shows and late cancellations. From the customer perspective, having to call a salon to make an appointment is both 'old hat' and extremely frustrating. Customers have to deal with a lack of market transparency, being unable to research, read reviews and compare, and a frustration from not being able to simply make appointments online.
