THE KICKOFF OF THE FIRST SOCIALTECH VALIDATION LAB
THE FIRST SOCIALTECH VALIDATION LAB IS FINALLY HERE!
At YES!Delft we aim to achieve societal impact by supporting startups to apply smart and innovative technologies. That is why we decided it is time to kick off our brand new program: SocialTech Validation Lab. Partnering up with Erasmus University Rotterdam (EUR) enables us to produce the best curriculum and ecosystem to make disruptive social innovation happen. It is the first of many programs we will be organizing under the roof of the brand-new incubator at the EUR, Erasmus Enterprise. Thanks to the collaboration and the hard work all our experts put in, we managed to once again exceed our goals.
We are proud to present to you the 6 startups who enrolled in the program at the end of April, and are currently validating their business idea through our 10-week lab. Scroll down, and find out about their mission and ambitions.
Emosys aims to alleviate the burden of epileptic seizures. For this, they combine the latest findings in neuroscience and wearable technologies and power it with artificial intelligence (AI).
“The first generation of our smart wearable system will detect seizures with unparalleled accuracy. The second generation will also predict seizures before happening. These innovations will free the patients from the need of constant supervision.”
“Imagine not being able to use your smartphone. Your world would become incredibly small. For millions of people with blindness this is the case.”
The Hable One is a smartphone controller that allows people with blindness to fully operate their phone in a simple, fast and private way. With a combination of eight buttons, you can type, move over the screen or use shortcuts, all whilst the feedback is in the form of audio. With Hable people with blindness regain control over their phone.
