After a week of public voting and jury rating, SonoTOM has won the 2020 Arqus Virtual Company Creation Challenge! The final had been programmed for the week of the 16th of November so as to be part of the activities organised for the 2020 Global Entrepreneurship Week.

This challenge was part of the Arqus “Entrepreneurial University and Regional Engagement” Action Line and encouraged participants who are already open to entrepreneurship to learn to implement practical tools and knowledge that they would have learnt through their local programmes on entrepreneurship. The 5 great projects received for this year’s finals were:

-Cities on Air: a customizable platform based on artificial intelligence to monitor and predict air quality in real time.

-SonoTOM: training modules to help doctors, sonographers and medical staff to learn and practice the psychomotor skills set necessary for ultrasound guided vascular access before performing the medical intervention on a patient.

-Greenhub: highly automated indoor farming modules using aquaponics and hydroponics to make vertical farming accessible to everyone.

-Lab4kids: a 3 step-practice and experience to reassure children before, during and after blood tests.

-GLOVID-19: reusable gloves that exploits the antiviral properties of copper to ensure both staff and environment protection.

Thanks to all the participants for the great effort, innovative solutions and work performed; the public for their votes; and a special thanks to our jury, made up of members of Arqus’ regional socio-economic partners, for their contribution:

-Alexandra Huber – Startup Coach at HTWK Leipzig

-María José López González – Delegate President of Economic Issues Comission in Social Council of the University of Granada

-Yacine Remini – Cofounder and CPO of Medeo

-Julia Schadinger – Community & Event management at Ideentriebwerk

Our heartiest congratulations to Kerstin Drechsler, Raffaela Beinsteiner, Monika Veit and Magdalena Gross for their video pitch and business model! They will now get a chance to have a mobility visit to one of the Arqus’ partners.
