2023 Chicago Venture Summit FOCT Startup Portfolio Promotion Package

We are excited to share that we’ve been selected for the Official Chicago Venture Summit Future-of-Climate-Tech Startup Portfolio! 🤩

Numorpho Cybernetic Systems (NUMO) thesis is the provisioning of automation and services that are process driven, intelligent, scalable, resilient and sustainable. Our goal in smart infrastructure enablement is to build the horizontal services to connect the vertical domains of:

  1. Renewable Resources
  2. Electric Mobility, and 
  3. Green Infrastructure

This would be part of the Build Back Better (BBB) funding that cities like Chicago have procured for large scale infrastructure transformations and the creation of future smart cities. It would also enable us to exploit adjacencies (parallel domains) thus creating a circularity for offerings matching with the theme that the whole is greater than the sum of the parts.

The diagram below portrays services enabled in a smart city by creating intelligent and connected networks for enabling the different constituent needs of the city.


We take a three-pronged approach to solutioning:

  1. Our process automation platform (Mantra M5) enables the coordination of activities using data engineering and actionable intelligence,
  2. Our proto lab where we ideate, iterate and showcase the art of the possible coupled with the science and math of engineering, and
  3. Our smart and connected products and services enable end-users to avail of the solutions.

This is depicted in what our ESG and Financial advisor John Brazzale defines as the inverted triangle shown depicted below:


The process platform serves to not only connect the dots between different systems and provide for a technical backbone but also enables to justify and validate the business case for the transformation initiative by looking at it top down from financial, resiliency and sustainability considerations. Here is an info-graph of its composition that is rooted in our four tenets – innovation, automation, integration and enactment of actionable intelligence:


Utilizing our reference architecture called the Digital Twine, we have created a blueprint for a Chicago Digital Twin that is a combination of a physical 3D printed architectural model whose baseplate is a city map and a digital interface to enable interactive services. This would facilitate dynamic introspection of real time and historical data gathered from monitoring stations, weather gauges and other communication channels. Augmented (AR/VR) views of locations will then make possible various planning and enablement activities like green zoning, infrastructure rebuilds and transportation routing.

Here is the connected framework we have created for Smart City Connect depictions:


Depicted below is a 3D printed landscape of the city of Chicago.


We have created such depictions in larger formats to enable AR/VR introspections to display aggregated information of different scenarios that would be helpful for collaborative planning activities utilizing real time and historical information.

Linked Solutioning is our strategy of developing key partnerships and coordinating solutions with government organizations, established platform providers and cutting-edge tools companies. For smart infrastructure provisioning we have divided our relationships into four quadrants as shown below:


Represented below is our strategy chess board of collaboration depicting the companies, organizations, and schools that we are partnering to enable the Smart City Connect framework and evolve our connected ecosystem for planning and infrastructure commissioning.


The organizations on the bottom left are related to Chicago’s Department of Planning and Development for whom we are proposing the City Digital Twin platform.

As we work on new projects, we will add to this list of providers to add value to our future ecosystem’s needs.

To facilitate electric mobility, we are also in the process of building smart and connected products like:

  • the folding helmet with applications for urban travel, biking, construction, industrial and wellcare that would have a small form factor to facilitate shipping, handling and ease of use. These helmets are also embedded with sensors to provide for smart monitoring capabilities.
  • thin mobility products like e-bikes, e-scooters and autonomous robots (for infrastructure and industrial applications) that would also reduce congestion.

These follow our CONNECT-DETECT-PROTECT protocol to enable safety, guided help, operational optimization and real time warning and alert for customers using our solutions.

Depicted below is the smart folding helmet created using Additive Manufacturing principles by following our “Born not Built” theme:


Our smart and connected products will serve to prove and improve our process management platform and serve to improve the ecosystem as it progresses in maturity, enables circularity and reuse of materials and technology and builds resiliency into the infrastructure.

We can’t wait to interface with fellow innovators and industry leaders at the event. 🤝
