A month through the Venture Building Phase, the time has finally come for us to give you an overview of The Collider’s tech stars. At a point where most startups are close to incorporation, we are ready to share with you the details of the innovative technologies that joined this first edition of The Collider to be turned into successful startups. All born in high-profile Universities and research centres, they were carefully selected according to their potential impact and value to society.

Leading these causes, we have welcomed incredible scientists offering their best knowledge to achieve the tech-transfer process. And here’s our word of gratitude to these people – the ones who remain with us and the ones who left- who dared leave their labs and offices to join an exciting venture of entrepreneurship along with us.

Meet hereby our pioneer specialists and their represented technologies:

Pep-Lluís de la Rosa / Universitat de Girona
DRM platform based on Blockchain that hinders unauthorized distribution proves ownership and protects unrestricted reproduction of CAD files. LICENS3D acts as the unique repository of all design data by connecting the CAD system, system administrators and manufacturing HW directly to the Blockchain securing the data from design to the manufacturing of a product.

Antonio Tripiana / Universitat Autònoma de Barcelona
Our GPS location technology for IoT sensors solves the battery and precision pains in a very simple way: we do all the calculations in the cloud. This processing offloading from the sensor to the cloud increases up to 10 times the battery life of the sensor and improves the accuracy.

Javi Agenjo / Universitat Pompeu Fabra
Online platform for brick and mortar retail analytics combining virtual reality with metric data overlays. Our technology blends techniques such as big data over traditional ERP data plus data obtained from different IoT systems, all visualized using state of the art 3D technologies.

Samantha Lopez / Centre de Recerca Matemática
RHmicro is a company of blood cells diseases diagnostics that combines microfluidics technology with big data. It creates a precise and portable in-vitro device that immediately diagnose haematological diseases with a single blood drop.

Stefan Bott / Universitat Pompeu Fabra
The Altum platform allows you to convert your big data written in natural language into data which can be automatically exploited in a meaningful way. Altum extracts the relevant information from your documents, classifies it and stores it in a machine-understandable format.

Victoria Beltran / Universidad de Murcia
Torakku combines the best of UWB and RFID technologies to feed an intelligent, highly scalable and flexible IoT Real-Time Location System that allows locating assets impossible to track before.

Anna Nicolau / Universitat Politècnica de Catalunya
SensoCor tracks the user’s cardiovascular health by measuring heart rate and blood velocity, which are indicators for heart and arteries condition. The user only has to place two fingers from each hand in the device and wait to be diagnosed. SensoCor’s service is the combination of an electronic device and a layer of Artificial Intelligence treating the data obtained.

Mislav Jordanic / Universitat Politècnica de Catalunya
Electromyographic signals are electrical signals generated by the skeletal muscles during contraction. By recording and processing these signals, person’s movement intention can be extracted and used in many applications involving human-machine interfaces, such as control of external devices, prostheses, and exoskeletons.

At The Collider we couldn’t be prouder to have hosted such a pool of leading technologies. Needless to say that they came along with brilliant scientists supported by powerful Universities. The first edition of The Collider wouldn’t have been the same without these protagonists and their drive to add value to society.
