Alchemist Accelerator’s Demo Day Showcases Diverse Startups Across Industries

Welcome to Alchemist Accelerator’s Demo Day! Today, we are excited to showcase the innovative startups that have completed our program and are ready to make their mark on the world. With 22 companies representing a wide range of industries, there is something here for everyone, whether you are in construction, solar panel cleaning, or even exploring quantum computing.

But that’s not all – we are thrilled to announce a new partnership with Microsoft. As part of this partnership, Microsoft will be providing startups with $350,000 in Azure credits. This is a fantastic opportunity for our startups to leverage the power of Microsoft’s services and technology. It’s a “first one’s free” approach that we believe will not only benefit our startups but also help Microsoft solidify its position as a leading provider of generative AI solutions.

So, sit back, relax, and get ready to be amazed by the incredible innovations from our talented startups. Let’s dive into the highlights of some of the companies presenting today.

Critical Loop

“Never underestimate the bandwidth of a station wagon full of magnetic tapes hurtling down the highway,” someone once said. This quote holds true for Critical Loop, a company that believes the same can be said for a truck full of EV batteries. Critical Loop has developed a “mobile energy asset management network” that acts as a grid balancing agent. It physically adds capacity where the existing infrastructure struggles to keep up. With grid analysis and logistics at its core, Critical Loop aims to be the “Sneakernet for power” in our increasingly decentralized energy economy.

Kara Technologies

In the accessibility space, a lot of new technologies are powerful enablers. However, there is a preconception that a transcript is sufficient for a deaf person to experience an auditory presentation. Kara Technologies aims to challenge this notion. They have developed 3D sign language avatars that provide a crucial modality for the deaf community. These avatars are not meant to replace interpreters but offer an on-demand alternative when they are not available or practical. Whether it’s in emergencies or live, developing situations, Kara’s sign language avatars bridge the communication gap and provide a rich, live translation experience.

SunnyApp Robotics

As we continue to add solar capacity at current rates, the need for efficient maintenance becomes crucial. SunnyApp Robotics has the solution with their solar panel cleaning bots. With millions of panels that aren’t getting inspected or cleaned frequently enough, efficiency can be seriously affected. SunnyApp Robotics’ cleaning bots automate the cleaning process and use less water compared to traditional methods. Human oversight ensures the proper movement from panel to panel, making solar panel maintenance more effective and sustainable. It’s not just solar panels though; Werover, another company in our batch, focuses on wind turbine monitoring, ensuring optimal performance and maintenance in the renewable energy industry.


In the world of robotics, autonomous vehicles, and smart homes, sophisticated sensing is essential. Beamlet has developed a new, super-tiny photonic sensor that measures the Doppler effect on returning light to infer velocity and other physical metrics. It offers greater precision than existing methods and has the potential to become a go-to sensor in robotics and autonomy. While it may not replace the Face ID on your phone, Beamlet’s photonic sensor brings a new level of sophistication to the world of sensing technology.


Navigating the intricate web of cloud infrastructure can be daunting for network engineers. That’s where LiveDiagrams comes in. They provide a visual representation of cloud infrastructure, similar to “Google Maps for cloud infrastructure.” This visualization improves accessibility and enables network engineers to easily understand and manage the complex network of services and connections companies rely on. With automatic updates and live information, LiveDiagrams streamlines workflow and contributes to the mental well-being of system administrators.

As we celebrate our Demo Day, we also want to take a moment to highlight the success of our accelerator alumni. Many of our alumni have raised significant funds at various stages, demonstrating the value and potential of the startups that come through Alchemist Accelerator. Additionally, we are proud to share that our applications have increased by 70% compared to last year. This growth underscores the competitive and thriving environment at Alchemist, attracting top talent and fostering innovation.

In conclusion, Alchemist Accelerator’s Demo Day promises to be a showcase of groundbreaking ideas and game-changing startups. We are thrilled to see the impact these companies will have on their respective industries and are confident that they will continue to drive innovation forward. We look forward to witnessing their growth and success as they navigate the exciting world of entrepreneurship.
