Local startups in the spotlight for exciting products, growth potential
A host of local startups have been cited by the Boston Business Journal for their innovative products and fast-growing potential, making them companies to watch in the coming months and years.

One such business, Aero Inc., is a groundbreaking online TV platform that has developed proprietary cloud-based antenna and DVR technology that allows consumers to watch live or recorded HD broadcast television on virtually any type of Internet-connected device, such as smart TVs, smartphones, tablets, and computers.

Founded by Chaitanya Kanojia, Aero is backed by a premier group of investors and powered by a prominent engineering team. Kanojia, who also serves as the company's CEO, currently holds more than 14 patents in fields ranging from robotics to data communications systems.

Known as an innovative leader, Kanojia holds a master's degree in computer engineering from Northeastern University and a bachelor's degree in mechanical engineering from the National Institute of Technology in Bhopal, India.

Apart from Aero Inc., young startup 3dim Tech was also mentioned on the BBJ's list of companies to watch in the near future. Founded by a group of MIT students, 3dim builds upon breakthrough technology invented at MIT that brings gesture control and 3D sensing to the next generation of post-PC era devices at a fraction of the cost of solutions.

Co-founded by Ahmed Kirmani, 3dim made headlines earlier this summer after snagging the top prize at MIT's $100K Entrepreneurship Challenge.

A PhD candidate in electrical engineering at MIT, Kirmani's research focuses on signal processing and optimization theory with applications to time-resolved computational imaging. He was also the recipient of the Qualcomm Innovation Fellowship.

3dim was also supported by faculty advisor Vivek Goyal, whose research interests include source coding theory, quantization, sampling, and computational imaging. He previously received the Eliahu Jury Award for outstanding achievement in systems, communications, control, or signal processing.

Another young business, CueThink, provides a peer-to-peer platform to students, teachers, and parents to help them better understand various mathematical processes. It allows students to develop systematic problem-solving skills, share and learn from their peers, and improve upon their math skills.

CueThink also helps teachers observe every student's thinking process while obtaining samples of typical student errors. Lastly, the platform helps parents see feedback from peers and teachers.

Founded by Sheela Sethuraman, CueThink is based in Boston, Mass.

"We want the student voice to come through• We are interested in process not product," said Sethuraman, who also serves as CueThink's CEO. "We think everything rests in student process, how they think, how they learn."
