The imec.istart community is rapidly expanding – with new tech start-ups joining the program on a regular basis. 

Remember how thrilled you were when you got selected for imec.istart? Remember your first pitch? The imec.istart Founders Circle event on March 20, 2019 in Antwerp is the perfect occasion to welcome the newest selection of imec.istart’ers. 

Moreover, at Founders Circle imec.istart will congratulate the graduating founders of Q1 2018. They have worked hard to achieve their goals. We are concluding another successful year, marked with new records:  

  • EPIC-BLUE has won the Airbus Critical App challenge in Dubai; a great confirmation and proof of the scalability of its Location Intelligence solution for Security, Safety & Industry 4.0.
  • Contento is particularly happy about the fact that they’ve achieved operational profitability in less than 6 months.
  • closed a strategic collaboration with Prof. Corten, adding the ESY-Solution – developed by Prof. Corten during the last six years at ZOL – to their product portfolio.
  • Helpilepsy was able to sell their digital health solution ‘Helpilepsy’ to key opinion leaders (people and organizations).
  • NowMax had a nice funding round consisting of a combination of imec, Google DNI and Vlaio.
  • On-Hertz had two important firsts: LUMO, their virtual radio studio, enabled Radio 2 to produce the first radio show in Europe entirely made from a hot-air balloon and, for its launch, LUMO was immediately awarded "Best of Show" by Radio World, the magazine of reference in the industry. 
  • Shayp has generated more value than previously anticipated in the B2B customer segment. Thanks to their devices they helped not only to track, but also to tackle water loss in a very efficient way with a direct impact on consumption and final bill.
  • SpacePal (Sewermapper): With the MVP they’re now using in pilots, Spacepal measures a manhole in seconds compared to 15 minutes with standard methods (without getting their clothes dirty)!
