Internet i Fokus, one of the bigger conferences in the region this spring, is traditionally aimed at small and medium business and improving their knowledge in all areas digital. However, this spring, the conference organizers decided they wanted to use the conference to help promote and empower startups as well. Therefore a completely new startups section was made.
Winners from the entire region
A part of the startup section was a startup competition, which had four winners. The winner were from all over the region – both Copenhagen, Lund and Helsingborg. An interesting mix:
- Fieldly – Online-based task management tool.
- Pinstriped – Branding laptop desktops.
- Sensefarm – A precision farming tool.
- Swiftcourt – A new way to settle out of court.
Except that the winner where in different business areas as well as from all over the region, wwo of the winning startups are part of the THINK lean startup incubator – an achievement they were proud of.
