Cohort and Challenge 1

Our first cohort of 7 scaling start-ups were answering challenges in the areas of data and AI. From traceability in additive manufacturing parts, to machine learning algorithms, video analytics and factory scanning – the start-ups impressed with their innovative solutions. From 13 initial pitches, we chose 7 start-ups as our initial cohort.
Our cohort presented their refined pitches to a live and virtual audience in London. A lot of hard work went into each and every deck but in the end we chose two winners RIIICO and SmartParts, as well as runner up Praemo.
