Up2B Product Booster again brings together startups and established companies from all over Germany

This year's five-week program once again networked startups with medium-sized and international companies, thus helping innovative IT and high-tech products to successfully enter the market. The highlight was the digital finale with presentations in front of more than 60 guests, 15 companies and a three-member jury.

In order to network startups and well-established companies from Baden-Württemberg and thus create tailor-made solutions for the IT and high-tech market, the five-week "Product Booster" of the state accelerator "Up2B" took place again in November.

"This year we had ten startups from all over Germany, which we brought together with seven companies," says Paul Becker, project manager in the Up2B Accelerator. "The cooperations have the potential to further develop new technologies and make them applicable. Combining the size and market power of established companies and the agility and innovation level of the startups creates a constellation from which all participants benefit".

At the end of the Product Booster, a jury honored the best startups. This years' winner was "Datability". The technologies of the Darmstadt startup create solutions for the identification of replacement items through image processing with machine learning. Philipp Vorst, Department Manager at ABB, explained the decision: "The startup has developed a technology that helps companies to digitize replacement parts management within a very short time. All that is needed for data acquisition and transmission is a smartphone. It couldn't be simpler! We were convinced by the wide range of possible applications for the solutions in industry."

The Up2B Accelerator is a joint project of Technologiepark Heidelberg, Startup Mannheim and innoWerft Walldorf and is financed by the state of Baden-Württemberg and the European Social Fund (ESF).
