‘This is a crate…’ The very first sentence used in the final pitch for the YES!Delft AI Blockchain Validation Lab, by co-founder Milou Klooster. And it makes sense because this what it is all about; RTIBlockchain. Together Milou (Retail supplier) and Yves (load carrier management consultant) connect domain knowledge from load carrier management to technology to make the world a bit more efficient. We challenge the existing way of working in a non-legislated and decentralised administrations and found out thinks can be organised differently.
We’re happy to tell you more and have great coffee at our new office space is with YES!Delft The Hague. feel free to come over and try it!
Not too long ago we celebrated Hardt Hyperloop for their grand achievement of the first functional hyperloop in Europe. But summer is not slowing down the Validation Lab and Accelerator alumnus: CEO Tim Houter has been nominated by EIT for the Innovators Award.
This AI/Blockchain Validation Lab alumnus just launched the first phase of their decentralized AI platform. Consequently, data science teams can upload their vast quantities of data – for example for a chatbot. Finally, ambassadors around the world then structure, enrich and annotated it. In this aspect, it works similarly to Mechanical Turk.
Commercial Director Jaap Hoogland received the prestigious Red Dot Design Award for the design of the Skelex360. The design for the exoskeleton with its high ergonomic wearability was made in collaboration with Van Berlo. Above all, The Red Dot jury praised the way the Skelex360 supports wearers without limiting their freedom of movement.
Opened its doors for the GESTE summer school, which aims to make tech accessible to everyone. The Validation Lab and Accelerator alumnus believes age, nationality, gender or education systems shouldn’t be limiting factors of learning. Therefore, they welcomed twenty children between the ages of 10 and 12 during the summer school program, and help them get enthusiastic about tech! Gemeente Delft, TNO, YES!Delft, TU Delft, Designathon Works & Kids Akademie support this inaugural edition.
Last year’s EIT Health Validation Lab winners — AidX Medical got the chance to pitch on national radio, in BNR Zakendoen. Co-founder Mirte Vendel represented the MedTech startup and impressed the jury of entrepreneurs with her pitch. Their product makes malaria detection cheaper, faster, accessible to all and more reliable. Finally, their goal is to enable malaria diagnoses to be executed without the need for medical expertise, to be implemented in rural areas.
Four YES!Delft startups, Physee, Envision, CloudCuddle, and Kitepower, have been nominated in the Innovation top 100 by the KVK (Dutch Chamber of Commerce). Finally, the exact raking will be presented by the jury on September 25. Moreover, Robotics startup Somnox and CleanTech startup Qlayers were featured in the KVK YouTube series Beyond Business.
On the 25th of June YES!Delft The Hague was proud to host Startup Tuesday! This weekly event is a collaboration between the innovative hubs in The Hague with the aim to strengthen connections and support impact-driven entrepreneurship. Certainly, it’s the perfect occasion to learn from experienced startup founders! Therefore, YES!Delft The Hague had local AI startups Envision and Dutch Analytics to pitch to the visitors. Startup Tuesday is a collaboration between The Hague Tech, Impact City, The Hague Humanity Hub, Apollo 14, and World Startup Factory.
The CleanTech startup operates in 19 countries worldwide already, but now they have broken new ground with their brand new HyPump. This second-generation hydro-powered irrigation-pump is stationary and specially designed for large volumes of irrigation. Furthermore, HyPump in Lliria (Spain) is estimated to pump 6 liters of water per second. So that comes to 500m3 per day up to the height of 35 meters or to a distance of 3.5 km, all without any fuel or electricity.
INSEAD Summer Start-Up Tour (‘SSUP!) is a discovery tour of the top entrepreneurial hot-spots around Europe and Asia.

Skeletal misalignment is surprisingly more common than most people think, misalignment in the feet alone affects over 45% of the world population. The feet are the foundation of the entire skeletal structure and if left untreated leads to chronic pain in knees, hips, lower back or legs, and if left untreated increases the chances of getting osteoarthritis in the knees and hip by 55%.
For a truly unique solution, they have combined hardware and AI enabled software to offer a complete solution.
Gyrafits G-Script is a fully adjustable insole orthotic that can correct misalignment in the feet up to 8 degrees and can be adjusted at the point of diagnosis. Their new full body digital measuring and diagnosis booth solution; G-Pod, promises to change the way we access and measure alignment correction, making the treatment available through new, alternate and more accessible sales channels.
The complete treatment solution promises to reduce end-user cost by more than 60% and take the time from diagnosis to treatment application from 2 weeks to under 30 minutes.
Making Gyrafits skeletal misalignment treatment solution; faster, cheaper and simpler.
ARCEON-Novel Elements was established by Rahul Shirke and Bernhard Heidenreich in 2018. We are developing novel and advanced ceramic matrix composite (CMC). Our pilot project will travel to our one and only natural satellite- The Moon. This project allows us to prove the credibility of our innovation. The material is unique because it can withstand a wide range of temperature (from cryogenic to 1600 °C and above) at near zero thermal expansion, high specific strength, corrosion resistance and, most importantly: it is 25% lighter than aluminum alloys. Due to the lack of polymers, it is also stable for long-term in space environment, which is characterized by vacuum and irradiation.
“We believe that our material has tremendous potential, not only in the aerospace but also energy, high-tech, and automobile industry. ARCEON family includes scientific, engineering and business development experts in the field of innovative materials with international experience. Our vision is to push the limits and deliver high-quality novel materials.”

Flying insects are getting a new and sustainable enemy. The control of insect pests now mainly takes place with the help of (bio) chemical and biological agents. PATS Indoor Drone Solutions, a spin-off from Delft University of Technology, is changing that with small drones that automate pest control and prevention. Through a pilot project aimed at combating the golden twin-spot moth (Chrysodeixis chalcites), a number of innovative gerbera growers are taking advantage of this development to remain at the forefront of sustainable cultivation and cultivation knowledge.
PATS sees its technology not only as a supplement to the current package of resources. In the long term, the system must also reduce substance use for specific pests and it is expected that the grower will have to spend less time scouting and combating pests.
“The aim is to fully implement the fight against the golden twin-spot moth, for example, using our system, precisely because of the preventive approach we use. In addition, our solution does not conflict with the biological control of other pests through targeted control of the moth itself.”

“We, as Braindrop BV, Netherlands, June 2019, have released a revolution which avoids new “Notre Dame catastrophes” forever. It is the strongest and 100% nontoxic fire protection chemical agent which makes anything fireproof easily. So strong that one can apply to his hand and put his hand into the fire!
Every 88 seconds one person die because of fires and billions of dollars damage occurs to the global economy every year. We lose lives, environment, and prosperity like monuments.
The main concern of existing flame retardants is their toxic feature and that they destroy slowly even if they stop fires. Our product TNF now is the single best solution which assures these concerns and provides the lifelong durable fire resistance for people, companies, and governments.”
Unlike most hardware startups these founders do not have a degree in engineering –one is an artist and the other an economist. All knowledge is self-taught by tactical learning: ‘to know just enough to challenge existing beliefs and rock the status quo on how to approach further development’ thus Remco Veenbrink. Their innovation is based on available parts engineering added with state of the art electronics and algorithms to create a minimum viable product. Mark Oudenhoven: ‘We implement continuous improvement and focus on strategic growth’ Their primary market segment is airports for which they recently contracted Rotterdam The Hague Airport as their launching customer. VideowindoW is a glare control system embedded into the exterior glass that doubles as a transparent video screen. He adds:’ This way glare control can even be a profit driver for airports’. With airports being their focus international expansion is a logical next step.
‘Passengers can enjoy artistic or commercial content and look outside when they focus beyond the glass layer’.

Noise is frequently cited as one of the leading causes of stress in city life. People living near airports and busy roads complain that they can never relax because of the intrusive sound. Their experiences are reflected in higher levels of mental ill-health, and physical problems like high blood pressure, strokes and early onset of cardiovascular diseases.
DeNoize, a complex-tech startup from the YES!Delft claims to have found a better solution. They have developed an active noise cancellation technology for building facades, promising at least 90% additional reduction against the outdoor noise. Their innovation paved their path to the finals of Philips Innovation Awards and a special feature in the BBC’s science podcast, “The Naked Scientist”. The DeNoize team is working hard to commercialize its technology and aims to finish the market-ready product within a year.
