PROOF OF CONCEPT PARTNER TRACK

Choose your challenge and showcase your skills.

ABOUT THE PROOF OF CONCEPT TRACK

The PoC-Track focuses on startups, tech teams, and students that will solve a specific tech challenge of one of our PoC-Partners from various backgrounds and industries. Teams can be both, incorporated startups, and non-founded tech teams, that have the goal to build a company.

Teams that choose this track have the opportunity to kickstart their business by showing investors and potential new customers, that their technological approach to solving real-world industry problems really works.

 

Pain points of a specific client can often also be found across an industry, or even in an entirely different branch. Therefore, if you can validate your solution with your PoC-Partner, you have the immediate chance to grow your business.

Nutrichem - a B. Braun Company

Smart drinking bottle for Parkinson’s patients

Parkinson’s patients have very particular limitations which have to be reflected in the hardware. For example, patients have trouble swallowing or drinking the right dosage (the content of the bottle or container would be a liquid which is “gooier” than regular liquid like water). The smart device would have to deal with these limitations, while at the same time communicating data regarding the dosage to an app or digital platform. Nutrichem plans to have the device and the software certified as a “medical device”, which also means that is has to meet certain quality standards. Nutrichem offers a development budget of up to €40.000 for the prototyping project.

Digitalization, monitoring and metering of heating centers in multi-story housing

Heating centers in the cellars of multi-story commercial buildings are the physical environment of the challenge. In such centers, different heating systems (e.g. wood pellets..), heat- and electricity meters, heating valves as well as circular heating pumps are located. At present, these heating centers are hardly digitized. Therefore, we don’t have adequate digital information about fill level of pellets, meter values etc. Currently, the monitoring works mainly “manually” by our employees – Let’s change that!
