The second day of DES2016 has become the meeting point for both corporations and start-ups. The former, looking for talent and ideas, and the later, looking for financial and logistic support to keep working on their projects and businesses.
Fifty three start-ups from verticals as Pharma and Health, Food, Cities and Public Sector, Banking and Insurance, Transportation and Logistics, Manufacturing, Tourism and Hospitality plus Retail and Consumer Goods, had the chance to share their ideas and projects in front of investors and corporations. It was an Elevator Pitch like event, with 5-6 minutes of talk plus B2B meetings.
There were start-ups with solutions for the Connected Home, as Wattio or Fitness Gamification as WeFitter, plus the sustainable transportation management, as Smart Biking. All of the start-ups in the Open Innovation Marketplace have something in common: being an example of brand new and disruptive business models, contributing to the digital transformation of their different sectors.
