A fantastic day yesterday at London’s Tobacco Dock for the very first Sixth Sense Demo Day! And we are absolutely delighted to reveal our two winners…

RIIICO – a confident and clear presentation from co-founder Jan Buechsenschuetz on how it is bringing factories into the 21st century with a collaborative planning platform, which disrupts how managers visualise their physical spaces and equipment.

SmartParts – a near perfect pitch from Cody Burke on how this company is enabling organisations to unlock the full potential of additive manufacturing, by introducing intelligent materials that are scannable, traceable and cloud-connected.

A further congratulations must go to Praemo, our runner-up and to the rest of our brilliant cohort. After two months of hard work refining their visions and pitches, our seven start-ups pitched to a live audience of entrepreneurs, investors and tech leaders in London, and hundreds more watching online around the world.

The quality of the presentations was outstanding throughout, making it a very difficult decision for our brilliant advisory panel: Ben Farmer, Elaine Warburton OBE, Mark Bryant and Drew Rogers. A further thank you must go to Michael Hayman MBE DL for hosting this landmark event for Sixth Sense, and to Mark Stevenson for his gripping keynote address.

This is only the beginning of the journey for all of our inaugural cohort and we cannot wait to see what they all do next.
