2019 SPIE Startup Challenge semi-finalists named
09 Jan 2019
Contenders to advertise innovations in healthcare, lasers, wearables and IoT, acquisitive to win big at PW 2019.
Winners, judges, and sponsors of the 2018 SPIE Startup Challenge.
Thirty-five photonics business startups from seven countries will participate in the 2019 SPIE Startup Challenge semi-finals, captivated during SPIE Photonics West on 5 February. Then on 6 February, six finalists will attempt for banknote prizes from Jenoptik and for business abutment from Challenge ally and sponsors.
Prizes accommodate $10,000 for aboriginal abode as able-bodied as $5,000 in articles from Edmund Optics; $5,000 for additional place; and $2,500 for third place. Furthermore, Early-stage Entrepreneurship biking grants will be awarded to three of the semi-finalists.
The SPIE Startup Challenge, which showcases new businesses that are acclamation analytical needs with photonics, is in its ninth year, and is enabled by Founding Partner Jenoptik, Lead Sponsors Edmund Optics, Thorlabs, and B&W Tek CEO Sean Wang, and Supporting Sponsors Trumpf and the Luminate Accelerator.
Judges accommodate adventure capitalists and business-development experts who vet the applicants for their business case, banking case, and aggressive advantages. The innovations to be presented this year ambit from improvements in prostate-cancer affliction and aboriginal apprehension of retinal diseases, to revolutionary, accelerated 3D press technology and bartering breakthrough technology for defended advice links.
SPIE Fellow and President of Jenoptik Jay Kumler was afflicted with the ability of the applicants and is attractive advanced to seeing the alive pitches: “Jenoptik is aflame to see the Startup Challenge growing with added teams and a absolute assortment of applications,” he said. “We are appreciative to abutment this all-embracing accident that showcases the ability of eyes and photonics to break important problems, an accident that additionally enables investors to appoint with entrepreneurs who accept the talent, affection and account to change our world.”
Both the semi-finals and finals of this agitative casting antagonism are accessible to anyone with a chargeless Photonics West exhibition registration. Semi-finalists will additionally angle their articles on the Photonics West display floor’s Startup Alley on 7 February.
