The five winners of the Swisscom StartUp Challenge have been selected: Archilogic, Ava, Gamaya, Gimalon and Monetas have won a business acceleration programme in Silicon Valley, with also the possibility of an investment or collaboration with Swisscom.

Swisscom, in partnership with venturelab, awards start-ups in the IT and telecommunications, big data, fintech, e-commerce, smart mobility, e-health, media and cleantech industries that want to use their products or services to conquer the world. Today, the 10 finalists presented their projects to the jury, which chose the five winners of this year’s Swisscom StartUp Challenge.

Archilogic creates digital, interactive 3D models of property interiors that can be explored and furnished directly in the browser. The 3D models do not require a software download, an app or any previous knowledge, and can be easily shared or embedded.

The Ava start-up is devoted to nothing less than the revolution of conception and prenatal health. Based on a thorough understanding of human physiology, reproductive medicine, sensor technologies and big data analytics, Ava has developed a wearable device that helps women become pregnant.

Gamaya is active in the field of smart farming. The start-up develops a large-scale hyperspectral imaging and analytics solution. Through analysis of the data provided by the system, it is clear when a plant or soil needs water or nutrients. With the help of this information, chemicals can be directed to where they are needed, diseases can be identified and harvests can be increased.

The Crowd app developed by Gimalon helps users organise their free time. It is very easy to organise a party or a meeting with friends using the app. It enables groups to communicate with each other, decide what to do and where and when to meet. The app also serves as an events calendar and personal diary.

The Monetas start-up is developing a decentralised system that can be used to conduct all kinds of financial and legal transactions. In an innovative way, Monetas connects (Bitcoin) blockchain technology for secure deposit entry with a cryptographically secured P2P network for fast, low-cost global transactions.
