EEC 2019

On 14 and 15 May 2019, alongside the themed sessions and debates of the European Start-up Days, we will witness presentations by participants in the Start-up Challenge. Eighteen selected start-ups (three in six categories) will make presentations on stages and the grand final will select the winners of the largest business event in Central Europe.

Among the 100 start-ups making presentations in the Scale-up Alley during the European Start-up Days at the Spodek Arena, will be ideas from Belarus, Germany, Poland (the largest number by far), Hungary, the United Kingdom and the US. These include ideas for business, such as, for instance, software robots, chatbots – including, for example, supporting people with addictions, solutions using drones, augmented reality, machine learning, tools for automatic data analysis, infrastructure to charge electric vehicles, as well as various ideas in the sphere of medicine, like a navigation application for the blind and the visually impaired, solutions reducing or liquidating smog, or solar solutions – and these are just random examples.

Here is the final list of start-ups in the Start-up Challenge in each category:

HEALTH&BIOTECHNOLOGY. Medicine, health, medical technologies, pharmacy, biotechnology

    Nomi Biotech Corporation

    Alcorythm®️is the first European innovative preparation to prevent the negative effects of ethyl alcohol consumption, mainly by reducing the toxicity of acetaldehyde. It is available as a shot formula, i.e. as a small 100ml glass or aluminium bottle in a shrink sleeve label. It has the taste of a tropical fruit and is not associated with a medication or an energy drink. The project is focused on solving the problem of alcohol intolerance among the Asian population. About 50 percent of Asians (over 2 billion people) respond to alcohol much worse than Europeans or Americans. The reason is a genetic mutation which generates an inactive form of aldehyde 2-dehydrogenase (ALDH2). Those people respond to alcohol consumption like alcoholics. Acetaldehyde accumulates in their organism which makes their faces turn red, the heart beats faster, nausea and vomiting appear. Additionally, the inactive form of ALDH2 increases the risk of cancer and reduces the efficiency of nitroglycerin used in the treatment of coronary heart diseases. The trademark alcorythm®️ is pending registration with EUIPO. The company is drafting a patent application for the formula.

    Bioavlee

    Bioavlee is a biotechnological company set up in Wrocław, Poland, which develops solutions that define a new quality of laboratory equipment – the technology will automate the identification process of micro-organisms. With its own patents and developments, the company has been redefining the identification methods of micro-organisms, which means that the work in laboratories becomes more accurate, faster, cheaper and simpler. The identification technology of Bioavlee relies on the fact that micro-organism colonies manifest specific optical and morphological properties. The properties bring about modifications to the amplitude and the phase of the light bands shed on colonies. As a result of the transformation, the bands diffract on colonies that operate as a lens and thus become information carriers.

    Inteligentne Ule [Intelligent beehives]

    Inteligentne Ule will solve the problem called Colony Collapse Disorder and the “Empty Beehive Syndrome” that occurs primarily in North America, China and many European countries. The effects are clearly visible not only for beekeepers, but indirectly for every human being. Bee dying means less pollinated flowers and therefore smaller crops of vegetables and fruits. The situation is to be resolved using the application for remote monitoring of beehive condition. The friendly interface provides for visualisation of information on the temperature at each storey inside the beehive, its weight, air contamination level, humidity at the top of the beehive, location and alerts on any anomalies such as sicknesses, swarming or bee undernourishment. Additionally, with machine learning and on the basis of scientific research, the application analyses the collected data and offers conclusions providing for a fast response. This is a tool that will be useful for owners of large apiaries and beekeeper amateurs.

The project is addressed to transport companies that are looking for innovative solutions and willing to use unconventional fuels. The authors want to launch a system that will support drivers in driving trucks in a remote manner from their base. The company will offer premises at their site from which drivers can control real vehicles. The idea was appreciated at the League of Young Logisticians organised by the University of Economics in Katowice, Poland.

    New Wall

    New Wall is a system of wall coverings that is composed of supporting elements and decorative panels. An innovative aspect of the system is the fixing process thanks to which it is possible, at any time, to change the appearance of the walls: each panel may be installed at various distances from the wall, panels may be transferred to other places – when several colours are ordered, the possibilities to change the appearance of walls are unlimited. The system is modifiable which means that panels may be dismantled and used at another place. The panels look like large bricks. The panels are not glued to the wall, but fixed in systemic clamps so that they can be removed at any time and replaced with other ones, for instance, in a different colour.

    T-3S implementation

    With the T-3S technology, facilities can be constructed within a competitive time and in large numbers. Elements of the T-3S system are rectangular and flat, fitting for seamless connections. Assembled as a wall or floor, they provide fitting reinforcements inside in compliance with the standard requirements concerning spacing and encasement. The innovative nature of the project consists in an innovatory modification to the shape of constructed elements and reinforcement so that the installation requires less human work and equipment. The anticipated results include reduced labour by minimum 80 percent in the construction of the developer stage, a reduction of mortar and plaster by almost 100 percent and reduced quantities of materials to manufacture system elements – overall resulting in a minimum three times shorter construction of buildings. It will reduce the costs by a total of more than one third.
