The Hague Tech's partner World Startup Factory presented ten promising startups at Demo Day in The Hague. The startups pitched their innovative solutions with social and positive impact for a large audience of potential partners, investors, customers and for experts at the campus of KPN, one of World Startup Factory’s partners.
World Startup Factory organized breakout sessions with the startups to strengthen their business cases and boost collaboration with partners, corporations and investors. The afternoon was closed off with a panel discussion. Representatives of KPN, SPIE, VenturesOne, the city of The Hague, TNO and ICANN took active part in the discussion.
Meaningful solutions to societal challenges
The startups, from eight different countries and five continents, are halfway the Impact Acceleration program of World Startup Factory. The next three months they will be primarily focusing on finalizing their business cases and on funding. The ten startups address challenges in the area of smart cities, smart buildings, security, health and ageing and future mobility. The startups have one thing in common: they all contribute in one way or the other to healthier lives and a more sustainable world. For instance via blockchain technology to monitor noise pollution at e.g. building sites or via software that translates sign language into speech or a technology that can transform any 2D picture or video into 3D.
