This year, the Digital Summit Euregio Award was presented to two start-ups.
No one had expected this result beforehand, but in the public voting in the final, both start-ups received 50% of the votes each and so in the end there were two happy winners on stage at the award ceremony.
A total of 6 start-ups from Germany and the Netherlands took part in the competition. Two of them were sent to the final by the jury to then again convince the audience on site and the online participants.
HealthX Future from Münster and Wellbased from Utrecht, NL won the startup competition at the Digital Summit Euregio on 24 May 2o23.
The Initiative In|du|strie – Gemeinsam. Zukunft. Leben. provided prize money of 5,555 euros for the winner. It was quickly decided that the prize would have to be split between two winners and so the prize money was increased to 7,000 euros at short notice, so that both start-ups went home with 3,500 euros.
This year, the award was presented by jury member Melanie Baum (Initiative “In|du|strie – Gemeinsam. Zukunft. Leben.”) – together with the other jury members Dr. Volker Meise (Eucon Digital GmbH), Rick Heitmann (A-Force GmbH) and Saskia Leenstra (Oost NL).
We have already successfully positioned an employee app on the market with which social enterprises can effectively manage all internal employee communication and position themselves as attractive employers in the care sector. We distribute the app via a monthly subscription model. We will soon launch a platform that enables outpatient care services, family carers and other informal carers as well as service providers to organise everyday care within a care community in an uncomplicated and intuitive way. The caring relatives are digitally supported by an AI-controlled knowledge base. The care recipients themselves are connected to the platform thanks to our Alexa skill. This is how we build strong networks and enable self-determined ageing. This holistic approach, which enables care work to be shared among many shoulders, was awarded and funded under the European Union’s Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme. We will distribute our solution through a sales partnership with Diakonie Baden and other partners and are also aiming for certification as a medical device and are looking into certification as a digital care application.
