Medicus, Skysense and Synfioo win the Innovators‘ Pitch 2016

Easy to read blood test results, autonomous drone inspections and digital transport monitoring – what sounds like future technologies are the business models of the winners at Innovators‘ Pitch 2016. Medicus, Skysense and Synfioo impressed the jury with their products and solutions in Digital Health, IoT and Mobility. For the first time in its eleven-year history, the Innovators’ Pitch was open to companies from all over Europe. More than 100 startups from 15 countries applied for our outstanding competition for early-stage startups. And also the winners are international: They are based in Vienna, Italy and Germany. 
  • The startup Medicus from Vienna, Austria / Dubai, UAE presented the most convincing contribution in the Digital Health category: Medicus developed an app that displays blood test results in a way that is easy for all patients to understand. Machine learning also enables the Medicus app to interpret all medical findings in real time, assess risks and provide health tips.


  • Skysense  from Berlin, Germany / Trento, Italy won the Internet of Things category: Skysense provides a fully automated inspection service for drones that does not require any human assistance.  The American startup developed a drone station that is compatible with most professional drones and can be adapted to the user’s respective requirements.


  • Synfioo from Potsdam, Germany finished in first place in the Mobility category. Synfioo provides complete transport monitoring to minimise the impact of disturbances such as traffic jams, strikes or blockades. The Synfioo platform pools all of the available data on individual types of transport. Logisticians can then call up and work with this data in their usual work environments.
Apart from receiving the sum of 5,000 euros each, the winners can also look forward to a free Get Started membership of Bitkom as well as an exclusive pitch of their ideas to top-class investors.
