The application phase for the Smart Tech Trophy 2016 has ended – and what can we say: Wow! In the final week, our mailbox was on fire, with a doubling in the number of applications received in the weeks prior. The final figures: 81 entries from 29 countries Most of the idea focus on energy (29 applicants), closely followed by mobility in communication and logistics (21 applicants), while 16 applicants tackle the challenge of innovative waste solutions, and 9 and 6 entries related to digitalisation in energy and energy sales respectively. All in all, an extensive and varied selection of promising startups.
Phew! So now that we have somewhat collated them all, it’s time for the detailed assessment, because of course the next burning question is: Who is participating in the pitch for the Smart Tech Trophy 2016 (which is incidentally being held on 25 October 2016)? We’ll know more in mid-September.
