TrailRax – Manufactures overland products at top-notch quality in the United States. Its products deliver a unique look for Jeep Wranglers, while at the same time providing extreme functionality.

It does this by customizing and manufacturing removable roof racks and bracket systems.
Trimble Tech – A materials-science-based company, not unlike Koch Industries, with a focus on sustainability. To start, the business wants to filter air to harvest phosphorus. This starting point could be beneficial in a few ways: (1) air quality will improve, and (2) phosphorus is a depleting resource needed for farming, so it would be beneficial to harvest the phosphorus for farming while also cleaning the air.
