Monkey Junior

Researchers have proven that early language learning is crucial to a child’s mental development. According to longitudinal studies by Harvard University, learning additional languages increases critical thinking skills, creativity and flexibility of the mind in young children. The brain, like any muscle, functions better with exercise. Learning a language involves memorizing rules and vocabulary, which helps strengthen that mental muscle. Meanwhile, children are geniuses at learning as their brain grows tremendously to nearly the same size of an adult’s at their age of 6.

Monkey Junior aims at bringing early language learning to every single family in the world. We provide parents with a mobile solution which fits their pocket: a learn to read app with offline use. Their babies, toddlers and preschoolers will benefit from a comprehensive reading program which engages them in daily play-like activities year after year.

Apollo Medical Optics Inc.

The foundation for Apollo Medical Optics Inc. (AMO)’s technology is found at National Taiwan University, where inventors first began investigating the basics of medical optics. These researches eventually led to the development of the advanced technique used for the establishment of AMO’s specialized Optical Coherence Tomography (OCT) system. The difference in the AMO system is due to several factors: the system’s design, the implementation of the single-clad crystal fiber, the development and use of the system’s broadband light source, and the technique’s superior imaging quality. Due to the unique crystal fiber in place in AMO’s OTC system, it provides the AMO system’s images with stronger axial resolution and faster scanning speed when compared to other products. This fundamental technology has already successfully performed non-invasive scans on living patients, giving 3D images of the epidermis, part of the dermis, and the blood flow in capillaries within these areas. With a multidisciplinary and passionate team, AMO believes that the company can become the leading company of non-invasive technology in the world. Our first market will be focused on Mohs surgery (one of the skin cancer treatment), and it could apply our platform to the field of dermatology and pathology.
