TOP 10 TECH STARTUP SUCCESS STORIES: OCTOBER
CleanTech startups in Delft are taking over the country, if we look at Kitepower, aQysta, and Physee Technologies. And this is even with three months less until we round up 2019. One could think there would be fewer awards granted, but check out all the achievements from this month’s startup success of our tech incubator in Delft.
The Accelerator alumnus is implementing their dynamic blinds at Rotterdam The Hague Airport. Concretely, from now on, the passengers can see the transformation of glass into media content at the departure hall between the gates seven and eight. Hopefully, all airports will have VideowindoW instead of regular glass in the future!
The Blockchain startup, a resident in our Digital Hub in The Hague, announced two new partnerships. They are collaborating with Domo Chemicals and Covestro to create a circular economy for the plastic industry. This could have a major impact on the sustainability standards for plastic materials.
The CleanTech startup won the first prize in the category ‘Top 100 innovation’ by KVK (Dutch Chamber of Commerce) with their SmartSkin technology. This innovation generates renewable energy from fully transparent windows, thus generating green energy and contributing to a sustainable future.
The CleanTech startup competed in the Social Impact Lab 2019 organised by PwC Nederlands. Over 125 startups and scale-ups applied with a social mission! 13 finalists got selected and aQysta is one of the four winners! They presented their sustainable hydro-powered pump that uses juust water to create an alternative energy source. Yes, you read that well, this means it works without the use of fuel or electricity!
The Accelerator alumnus just got featured in the AD newspaper. PATS is creating small indoor drones that can fight against vermin in greenhouses. Farmers can stop using pesticides and eliminate pests in a sustainable manner.
The CleanTech startup located in Delft is back in the news! The public poll, created by KVK Innovatie Top 100, resulted in enough votes for making Kitepower be amongst the Top 22 of the most innovative companies in South Holland. Their Kitepower system generates renewable energy by only using wind power. In addition, the votes got them to be amongst the Top 80 most innovative companies in the Netherlands.

During the Dutch Design Week 2019, Braindrop will be present. How? One might wonder, since they’re no design company.

You can visit The Growing Pavillion from the 19th to the 27th of October in Eindhoven!
