It's often said that a path to creating a successful startup is nonlinear. We had many stops and starts, but ultimately we were able to keep ourselves treading water long enough to enter a new phase for Ziel - Ziel Sensory. Led by myself and John Frullo, another fellow Rice grad, we have hit a series of incredible milestones to put us on a clear road to what we aim to achieve. We were recognized as one of the Top 500 Early Stage Science Startups Worldwide last year and were featured in places like Sports Illustrated and MLB Network. We're nearing completion of a hardware demo, filed for a full patent, and even hired our first employee, Jorge Quintero! This is an exciting time for Ziel, so we hope you continue to support us on this journey.
