  1. 100,000 shares to first scientist-verified early active users

  2. Ureka Science, Inc. is announcing the intention to distribute 100,000 shares from its common stock under its Delaware incorporation. The stock amounts to 1% of the company equity and currently has a valuation of 0.01 cents per share, given the seed nature of the company in its early stages. These seed shares will remain the preferred company stock, allowing participation--through voting--in company decisions that will determine Urkea’s growth and future directions.

    Under this offer, Ureka Science, Inc. will assign one share per user from the time of public release of Ureka mobile app from the Google (Android) and Apple (iOS) app stores. On Google Play Store, this mobile app is available as Ureka. On the Apple App Store, it can be downloaded as Ureka Sci.

    The 100,000 shares will be allocated as one each to the first 100,000 users of Ureka to:

    1. Verify scientist status through the use of ORCID (Open Researcher and Contributor ID) verification system from the Ureka app and share details such as affiliation (department and institution) to Ureka from the ORCID system. (To do so, users must agree to publicly share such details by logging into the ORCID account).

    2. Post at least one scientific finding to a science channel or sub-channel on Ureka.

    3. Participate in the community through at least three comments or replies to comments on others’ or one’s own posts.

    For questions related to ORCID, please contact ORCID, Inc. ORCID IDs are available to scientists at all stages from students to tenured faculty. As such there are no age and employment restrictions on this offer.

    Ureka Science, Inc. will automatically monitor the activity and will send an email confirming completion of the three required elements. Through the Ureka announcement system within the app, Ureka will announce when the first 100,000 allocations have been completed.

    Once the 100,000 allocations are completed, Ureka will email a stock certificate confirming the allocation and registration with appropriate regulation authorities in the state of Delaware where Ureka Science, Inc. is registered as a corporation. Ureka will require that the allocated users not resale the share in a private market for seed shares for 3 years measured from the time of allocation. An early sale will cancel the share from the preferred company stock. The future valuation of the share is subject to company growth and valuations that Ureka Science, Inc. will receive in future capital raise rounds.

    For tax and other financial matters related to receiving a share from this offer, please consult a tax advisor. Ureka Science, Inc. employees, management, Board of Directors, and immediate family members are not eligible for this offer. An example stock certificate will be available from the Ureka website at ureka.science.

  3. 300,000 shares for 300 most active users during the first year of Ureka app

  4. Ureka Science, Inc. is announcing the intention to distribute 300,000 shares from its common stock under its Delaware incorporation. The stock amounts to 3% of the company equity and currently has a valuation of 0.01 cents per share, given the seed nature of the company in its early stages. These seed shares will remain the preferred company stock, allowing participation--through voting--in company decisions that will determine Ureka’s growth and future directions.

    Under this offer, Ureka Science, Inc. will assign 1000 shares per user to the 300 most active users during the first year from the time of public release of Ureka mobile app from the Google (Android) and Apple (iOS) app stores. On Google Play Store, this mobile app is available as Ureka. On the Apple App Store, it can be downloaded as Ureka Sci.

    The 300,000 shares will be allocated as 1000 each to 300 scientist-verified users of Ureka to have the most activity. The activity or User Ranking (UR) will be measured as:

    UR = Lu + 10 Cu + 100 ∑(PRu + 1)

    where Lu and Cu are the number of likes and comments the user has made on other posts and PRu (User’s Post Rankings) is the ranking of the scientist’s postings on Ureka which we define as:

    PR = Luv + Cuv + 10 Lv + 100 Cv

    where Luv and Cuv are the number of likes and comments from unverified users and Lv and Cv are the number of likes and comments from scientist-verified users.

    Ureka Science, Inc. will automatically monitor users’ activity. Users can follow their activity from a search webpage on the website using their ORCID ID number as input. Ureka will contact all eligible users that qualify for this offer via email at the end of one year of operations. Ureka will require that the allocated users not resale the share in a private market for seed shares for 3 years measured from the time of allocation. An early sale will cancel the share from the preferred company stock. The future valuation of the share is subject to company growth and valuations that Ureka Science, Inc. will receive in future capital raise rounds.

    For tax and other financial matters related to receiving a share from this offer, please consult a tax advisor.

    Ureka Science, Inc. employees, management, Board of Directors, and immediate family members are not eligible for this offer. Ureka users who received a share during our launch incentive for first 100,000 early active users are eligible for this offer.

Ureka Ambassador Program

Ureka Science, Inc. is aimed at developing a number of items of interest to scientists, including streamlining communications and publishing channels based on modern technologies. Our first product is a mobile app to ease communication among scientists across all disciplines, and between scientists and the general public. The focus is on "open science," allowing feedback on ongoing research and research results. To scientists, Ureka will be a mechanism to share results, generate new ideas, and form new collaborations. To the general public, Ureka will provide a direct way to engage with scientists and learn about the latest research in all fields of science.

Ureka Science, Inc. is initiating an ambassador program focused on establishing a network of representatives at research institutions, universities, and colleges throughout the world. These brand ambassador positions are primarily aimed at graduate students, but we will also consider expressions of interest from upper-class undergraduate students and junior-level postdoctoral fellows. The primary focus of this program is to represent Ureka at individual institutions and at various scientific meetings and conferences, and to aid in the general recruitment of the scientific community that will be active on our platform.

Candidates for the Ureka Ambassador program must have strong communication skills with the ability to market Ureka within their campuses and to their faculty and colleagues. The positions also require a strong commitment to Ureka Science, Inc.’s overall mission. No technical background is necessary for these positions. Ureka Science, Inc. will offer reasonable incentives to its ambassadors reflecting their overall time spent on activities related to the program. These include regular payments that scale in accordance with ambassadors' success with outreach efforts and recruitments. We expect time commitment to be at the level of a few hours a month. As Ureka Science, Inc. expands its offerings, we will prioritize existing ambassadors in recruitment for full-time employment within the company. The Ureka Ambassador program will be overseen by a coordinator who will stay in regular contact with the network of ambassadors.

To apply to the Ureka Ambassador program, please fill the online form linked below (requires one-page CV in PDF format). The deadline for initial expressions of interest is Tuesday, March 20th, 2018. We anticipate appointing two to three ambassadors for each Tier-1 research university and one ambassador for smaller universities and college campuses. If you need additional information Ambassador program coordinator can be contacted at arianna@ureka.science
