    Tenant: 

    Chicago is attempting to reclaim itself as a "smart city" but to do that, they must first map the vast underground network of pipes, that has been poorly documented in the past. Do to how poorly documented these pipe systems are, construction crews never know when they are going to hit a pipe that they had no knowledge of being there. 

    In the past, even gathering information from HBK Engineering, which includes maps and blueprints of the city is not enough to ease the risk of hitting something that no one knew was there. As it is now, the Office of Underground Coordination must pour over old maps to make sure a site is safe for construction to begin, and if something is found, they have to call for specialists to come in and make sure the pipe is not being used before construction continues. This wastes time and money. 

    Here is where Reconstruct, an EnterpriseWorks startup, comes into play. Chicago is hoping to launch a 3D map of Chicago's infrastructure. Reconstruct provides a visual data analytics platform for reconstruction efforts. 

    The process involved recording a video of the visible pipes at a construction site, then computers from Reconstruct use a technique called point clouds to analyze each frame of the video, which can help to create a 3D model of the pipes.

    Soil Diagnostics, and EnterpriseWorks agriculture startup company has dropped its sampling costs to just 40 cents per sample, while it used to be $40 per sample. 

    Founded in 2014 by Kaustubh Bhalerao, an associate professor in agriculture and bio engineering at the University, Soil Diagnostics provides diagnostics and mineral-monitering services for agriculture soil. 

    The development of the robot came after the company determined that it could not afford $40 a sample, and theyn realized there had to be a better and more cost effecient way to handle this problem. They earned a grant from the state of Illinois and set out to developing a robot that now has cut the cost by 99%. 

    This would likely have not been possible without the moral support from the University, and the resources availbe to startup companies at EnterpiseWorks, which has been named a top 3 College Town incubator in the past.
