Frontier Microscopy is bringing the power of AI to the untapped
$103B Environmental Monitoring and Remediation industry

Context: Mold and asbestos are serious health hazards in homes and offices.

  • Mold is a leading cause of death for the immunocompromised (10M Americans, NIH 2023).
  • Children exposed to mold are 3x more likely to develop asthma; 70% of US homes have molds.
  • 4.6M out of 21.8M people (21%) with asthma in the U.S. are due to dampness and mold exposure in their homes. (EPA and Berkeley National Laboratory, 2007).
  • Estimated economic costs of mold and asbestos related illness exceed $70B per year.

Problem: Professional mold testing costs ~$140K for an average apartment building of 200 units ($600 / home) and consumers cannot properly test for mold themselves.

Solution: Introducing the MARVIN platform, the next generation of mold and asbestos monitoring. Through the MARVIN platform we can reduce professional mold/asbestos monitoring costs by as much as 70%, and are the first to enable consumers to monitor for airborne mold in their own home. Our platform consists of three key technologies:

  1. MARVIN lens (launched Feb 2023), patented AI powered microscope system for identifying and quantifying over a dozen toxic molds (and asbestos) from site air and swab samples;
  2. MARVIN air (launched Feb 2024), world first consumer airborne mold sampling device and service; and
  3. MARVIN sage (TBA, 2024), AI agent for interpreting monitoring results and troubleshooting issues.

Traction: As of Feb 2024, MARVIN lens technology has grossed $300K in revenue with $200K revenues expected for Q2 2024. MARVIN lens has a customer retention rate of 77%, validating a strong product-market fit. MARVIN air achieved 15 sales in its first week of launch, with a 6% click-through-rate on experimental paid advertising from $100 of ad spend (10x what is considered good CTR). 

Team: Frontier is led by a team of robotics and AI experts (Jordan Gruber, CEO and Founder; Gabor Szijarto, CTO) and environmental services experts (Mike Nguyen, Chief Scientist; Doug Paule, Sales Director) who have 12+ years of experience in robotics and AI, and scaling mold/asbestos monitoring services

Fundraise: Frontier is raising money to scale the deployment and sales to handle their increasing customer base.
