  • bikuh - pedal for payback

    bikuh connects the advertising industry with bicycle riders. Anyone owning a bike can place an advertisement on it and in return gets paid up to 20 cents for each ridden kilometre. This financial incentives motivates people to rider more often their bike and less their car. It is scientifically proven that it works and thus we save CO2 emissions. And advertisers profit from advertisements that are mobile and are ridden directly by their target group. Through an app bikuh tracks each ride and allows for digital analysis tools of the exposure of the campaign that are unknown to outdoor advertisement.

  • ChargeX

    ChargeX - we develop a power strip to connect multiple electric cars to a single charging station. We thereby solve the problem of fully charged cars blocking the charging station. Our product allows a mostly automated plug-in process creating multiple charge points at low costs from a single charging station. Our target customers are EV owners and infrastructure providers, such as car park operators. The value we create for users of electric cars is a high availability of charging stations wherever they arrive. For infrastructure providers, we increase the utilization of individual charging stations, therefore reducing the overall costs of providing sufficient charging infrastructure in the future. Our milestones for 2017 are to finalize our prototype, get into the EXIST program, found our company and have the partners to start pre-production.

  • E²T - Efficient Energy Technology GmbH

    The technological basis of our plug&play storage device is a patented measurement technology, that is able to detect the electricity consumption within the household from the plug of the device itself. The system consists of a small photovoltaic panel and the storage device. As soon as the consumer plugs it in, the PV generates electricity which is stored in the battery pack and at the
    moment electricity is consumed anywhere in the household, the devices detects it and electricity will be supplied back to the household grid.
    With our unique system, we enable PV applications in smaller scales, especially for existing households in urban areas.

  • Greenwell2Greenhouse

    The core solution is to use existing high value resources (wells that are several 1000 meters deep) and instead of abandoning them to re-use them for the generation of geothermal energy. By that, geothermal heat becomes available at competitive prices to farmers to substitute fossil fuel. This further allows increasing the ability to self-supply with vegetables and fruits in Central or Northern European cities during colder periods. Thus, large amounts of transportation-related GHG emissions can be eliminated.

  • Hawa Dawa

    Air pollution is the biggest environmental health risk of our time. More than 90% of all cities with more than 100 000 inhabitants do not uphold WHO air quality guidelines, causing millions of premature deaths every year. Fixing this problem requires a vast amount of air quality data, which traditional solutions cannot yield. Hawa Dawa developed a new bottom-up air quality monitoring technique that provides remote, real-time & in-situ air quality data anywhere & anytime. Risk-groups, such as Asthmatics, COPD patients, children and pregnant women can finally control their air pollution exposure, while policy makers can make impactful and informed decisions to improve urban air quality. At the heart of our solution lays our CE-certified sensor node, which has been endorsed by top industry scientists as being both accurate and state-of-the-art. Combined with artificial intelligence, it is a

    JOYCE is the world’s first scent-based retronasal drinking system which makes it possible to drink pure water while enjoying a delicious taste.
    The JOYCE drinking system adds scented air to pure drinking water. While drinking, a mixture of air and water reaches the mouth where the air separates from the water and is retronasally perceived as flavor. The effect is amazing! While drinking pure water free from additives, sugar, calories or aromas one can still enjoy various delicious tastes.
    With JOYCE, we tackle two major problems of our time. The wasteful cycle of using one way drinking bottles and health problems caused by unhealthy drinks.
    We will generate two separate streams of income. One results out of selling the drinking system itself, the other one from continuously selling the aroma pods which last for about 20l of water.
  • Manticore It GmbH -, vertical barrel

    The aponix vertical barrel takes the defacto standard equipment in mordern horticulture to the next level enabling users to set up grow spaces not only in 2D but in a flexible vertical 3D way. Cultivation area is translated from flat surface to the surface of barrel like towers, of which the height is flexible adding more grow spaces with additional height. The concept abstracts the barrel down to basically one lego like shape being 1/6th of a ring segment of a barrel. Each of the parts provides adapters on its surface. 6 of these parts are assembled into a ring segment, and any number of ring segments are then stacked as high as there can be beneficial atmosphere created for the cultivation of a crop.

  • ReLaDe OÜ

    Reusable Laundry Detergent (ReLaDe) changes the concept of how laundry is done. It is the basis for the first reusable laundry detergent system in the world. Chemical detergents are toxic and harm reproductive health when spread into the water ecosystem. Instead of these toxic compounds, biological enzymes can be used without any loss of performance and with lower energy consumption.To address this issue, we use magnetic nanoparticles to bind enzyme molecules and magnetize them. The resulting magnetic detergent molecules can be easily removed from waste water via magnetic force and reused in subsequent wash cycles for months. Thus, we have redesigned the laundry detergent concept, creating a sustainable, reusable product which, if produced on an industrial scale and adopted into wide-spread use, could have significant positive health and environmental implications.

  • SirPlus UG (haftungsbeschränkt) i.G.

    SirPlus massively saves and reduces B2B surplus food by matching supply and demand efficiently through our secondary market (digital marketplace) for surplus food. We bring wonky and expired food back into the circular economy (B2C & B2B).
    We receive surplus food from retailers, logistics players and producers for free and sell it at discount prices through our store, delivery and online shop. Of all food provided to us, we will distribute 20% to NGOs for free.
    We have received a €100k loan to start operations and convinced 4 major supply partners who committed us surplus food worth 6-7 digits in 2017. Further, we have acquired a strong same-day-delivery partner in Berlin. Our aim is to save >500 tons of food in 2017. Overall, there is huge potential in the EU with 50% food waste while >40% of it is still eatable, thus a theoretical market potential of food worth >40 bn €.
  • Solabolic GmbH

    Based on a revolutionary concept, Solabolic parabolic trough will lead to a paradigm shift in the solar thermal industry. Its unique, patented design enables, on the one hand, to realize much larger collectors, while preventing the focus deviation due to wind loads, and eliminating inefficiency of large collectors and on the other hand, to avoid expensive and complicated manufacturing processing, which maximises the local content, especially in the developing countries (with the world's greatest solar resources) and supports the political decision in these countries towards solar energy, as we offer an economic advantage of manufacturing the collectors for the most part locally. All this leads to a significant reduction of the energy costs and accelerates the use of solar energy.
  • Tausendundein Dach

    We are going to build 1001 solar power plants on top of 1001 business roofs in Austria. All of them will produce solar energy at or below grid parity. While doing that we will build up the strongest network of decentralized power producers and have the ability to also take part in the energy market as soon as it allows small player to have a say in that business. We prepare for virtual power networks, are ready for anything blockchain technology will have to offer and will organize everything a power plant producer will need in the future. Maintenance, Cleaning, Energy contracts etc.
