Startup300 Award (€1000 in cash)   
Winner: DataRobot

 


DataRobot™ employs innovative Natural Language Processing (NLP) & Machine Learning (ML) Algorithms to analyze privacy statements, terms & conditions, and internal docs to check firms’ degree of compliance with the EU- General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR). The algorithms are trained by the concepts and legal requirements contained in the GDPR, so that they can identify and extract specific sentences with greater speed, accuracy and at lower cost. The EU GDPR 2016/679 is applicable to firms of all sizes and the EU promises a vigorous enforcement culture. We have identified three B2B markets; (1) Firms data compliance personnel who are responsible for making sure their practices are in line with the GDPR. (2) Legal firms who work with clients’ data protection practices, (3) Data management consultants.

Innovation Award (Ticket for the Pioneers Festival 2017)  
Winners: Tetragon

 


Tetragon is developing an innovative Braille reader that will be small and nevertheless be capable of showing long lines of text. This is achieved by a ground-breaking technology which presents the Braille characters on the inside of a rotating ring. The reader will slide his/her finger as usual along a line thus stetting the ring into rotation. While reading text at the bottom of the ring, characters in the upper half of the ring are updated to show new text. A first (enlarged) prototype was successfully developed in two diploma theses and a patent is pending.

Best Overall Concept: participation in a 3-week accelerator program in Tel Aviv (sponsored by GIN/goInternational)  
Winner: CellView

 


In our project, we currently develop new visualization technology for depicting microscopic organisms, as well as new methods for nanotechnology modeling in collaboration with partners such as the Allen Institute, the Austrian Institute of Technology (AIT). Our main product will be a software package consisting of a visualization framework for modeling and rendering complex models of biological structures such as cells, cell organelles, bacteria, viruses, or DNA origami, conveying details on several scales, and across multiple orders of magnitude. Our startup will provide services to our customers in the form of custom tailored solutions and extensions to our core visualization and modeling platform. Such a custom application will utilize the framework to create interactive scientific visualizations, storytelling animations, and similar visual content based on biological measurements and simulation data. Our vision is to create interactive 3D visualizations of living cells and dynamic nano structures at atomistic detail that allows observers to explore, learn about and create within the nanocosmos.

Commercial Viability Award: Pitch at the Austrian Angel Investment Association – aaia  
Winner: Huber Scientific

 


Huber Scientific develops novel solutions for experimental equipment used in the fields of Electrochemistry and Solid State Ionics. These innovative setups not only enable completely new experiments, but also allow for the first time a combination of different, complementary methods. Huber Scientific will also supply completely new designed and improved test equipment for standardized measurements, which is much easier to repair, simpler to use and much cheaper than other test stations already available on the market. Up until now, research groups worldwide had to develop and build their own measurement equipment since for many experiments no commercial setups were available. This often resulted in makeshift equipment of varying quality with no long term support. With years of experience in designing high quality and easy to use and upkeep experimental equipment, Huber Scientific will help research groups all over the world to focus on what they are doing best: Delivering top notch science.
