BEAMMWAVE | THE ANTENNA TECHNOLOGY FOR 5G
The development of mobile technology and specially 5G-New Radio takes extremely big steps towards taking away the notion of distance when we communicate. It promises speed that outperforms fiber and fixed connections resulting in no latency and endless capacity.
We want to make the 5G implementation on mobile phones and IoT devices as easy as possible. We have created a 3 x 3 millimeters single-chip RFIC for digital beamforming including front-end and antenna arrays that revolutionizes the approach to mmWave and beamforming. Our technology offers optimized performance using digital beamforming, faster development, easy integration, and cost reduction.
CICADA HEALTH | PREVENTIVE CARE FOR CHILDHOOD CANCER SURVIVORS
We want to make the world a better place by improving medical follow up for childhood cancer survivors. We do this by focusing on structured treatment data and work processes. Through our products and services, we assist healthcare providers in informing survivors of the treatment they received as children, and which survivors to call on first for preventive care. We aim to provide useful information on the health-associated risks that survivors may face in the future.
“The more you know about the past, the better prepared you are for the future”, said Theodore Roosevelt. We use history, pair it with novel approaches from AI, to help childhood cancer survivors, to a longer and healthier life. With detailed and structured information on treatment, healthcare professionals can get a broader picture of people at risk and help them in reducing or avoiding many of the late effects affecting childhood cancer survivors.
It is a driving force to know that our work creates an impact on individual lives and society. Our CEO has been awarded as "Årets Tekniklöfte 2020" by The Chamber of Commerce in Southern Sweden and is one of Sweden’s 10 most innovative entrepreneurs according to the Åforsk Foundation.
IAMRUNBOX | MAKES YOUR ACTIVE OUTDOOR LIFE RUN SMOOTHER
The COVID19 pandemic brings the challenge of remaining active while keeping safe. We managed to react quickly to the situation and released our IAMRUNBOX RunMask this summer. A few months later, it was selected as one of TIME's 2020 Best Inventions.
Now, more than ever, the urban population is becoming increasingly more health-conscious and looking for ways to fit sport in their busy lives. At IAMRUNBOX, we offer functional, sustainable, motion-friendly backpacks and accessories for active urbans on the go.
We are a now scale-up company, with a presence in more than 30 countries, building towards getting listed in 2022.
PINTEG | HAVE YOU GIVEN YOUR PERSONAL INTEGRITY ONLINE A THOUGHT LATELY?
The implementation of GDPR to protect personal information led to complicated user conditions and the use of cookie consents. Companies are collecting personal information and forming detailed digital user profiles with the official intent to provide personalized advertising, but with frightening potential. 75% of internet users in Sweden are concerned about privacy but feel there is little they can do about it. While 86% of business leaders struggle to implement and uphold compliance with GDPR.
We will help European citizens to protect their personal information and follow the intent behind the GDPR regulations. We provide technical solutions for individuals and small/medium-sized enterprises that will help them regain control over personal data. Our framework solution is the only one making a connection between consumers and companies in ONE solution. A core part of the solution is patent pending.
The first version of our Privacy Assistant is already available on our website. It allows internet users to gain full visibility of companies collecting their data and easily use their GDPR rights.
NORDAMPS | NANOTECHNOLOGY FOR HIGH-FREQUENCY DEVICES- ENABLING HIGH BAND 5G
There is an eminent need for high-frequency devices that will enable the promise of high band 5G to be fulfilled. Backed from 20 years of nanostructure materials and nanowires research from Lund University, we are going to commercialize a new type of nanowire transistor. We fabricate vertical, nanoscale structures using III-V compound semiconductor materials directly on silicon.
NordAmps’ transistors offer enabling technology for high-frequency circuit applications reaching 170GHz and above. Resulting in superior gain, linearity, and noise performance at mmWave frequencies with the possibility of integration with existent semiconductor technology.
We are proud to announce that we have finalized the first PDK version that allows customers to design their own circuits using our transistors and try out the performance gain of the circuits firsthand.
LIFEFINDER | SAVING LIVES IN EXTREME WORK ENVIRONMENT THROUGH IOT
We created an intelligent alert system designed to proactively detect life-threatening situations for people working in hazardous environments. We are focusing our efforts on the marine and offshore markets. And at the moment, we are working on our pilot with Maersk, one of the largest container ship and supply vessel operator in the world.
We plan to establish strategic partnerships to integrate LifeFinder into existing safety solutions. Our advanced sensors and software can be used as a wearable, built-in, or add-on that seamlessly integrates into workers’ everyday safety routines. The device is extremely small, has a battery life of +5 years, does not need manual activation or a mobile network, and has a +10 km range.
I joined the company because I believe that LifeFinder could be a game-changer when it comes to safety. If we could save one life, all the work we do is worth it. It does not get bigger than saving someone’s life.
QOITECH | POWER EFFICIENT IOT- FOR EVERY DEVELOPER
At Qoitech we make the most effective tools and a SaaS application for developers and teams that want to design highly energy-efficient battery-driven products.
As consumers, we know how annoying it can be when our battery-powered gadgets get drained too quickly. For millions of companies providing digitalization that rely on hardware devices as enablers (e.g., Internet of Things), short battery life can make or break their business. We strive to revolutionize the traditional, expensive instrument market, and make it approachable and affordable, for all developers, hardware and software, to embrace low power design mindset.
Our product portfolio includes a hardware tool for one-time purchase and software toolboxes subscriptions to measure, analyze and benchmark devices’ energy consumption allowing for faster and more cost-efficient development of long-lived devices.
We are going into a series A round of funding to build on our momentum, scale up our sales and strengthen our SaaS by growing new sales channels and our the team with new talent.
AVSALT | MAKE WATER DESALINATION SUSTAINABLE
Fresh water is one of the world’s most precious resources, which is why at least 4 of the United Nations’ Sustainable Development Goals are related to clean fresh water. Unfortunately, desalination plants in their current form are very energy intensive and generate high emissions. Sustainable approaches are needed if we are going to be able to meet these goals together.
Since 2012 Avsalt has innovated a scalable solution to solve this challenge by providing desalination method with high efficiency and a sustainable footprint. The formal description of our technology is “Desalination by multichannel capacitive deionization.”
We are at the moment closing a funding round that will take us from industrial prototype to proven demand by targeting the agriculture and parts of the industry market. At the same time, we know the potential that our solution has to contribute to achieving the Clean Water and Sanitation Global Goal thus we are very proud to be part of the UNOPS Global Innovation Center Program.
