Blickfeld, a leading provider of solid-state LiDAR technology, receives the German award “The Spark” by Handelsblatt and McKinsey which honors digital innovation. In a 90-second pitch on Thursday evening, co-founder Rolf Wojtech impressively presented the various applications of the scalable solid-state LiDAR sensors to the audience. The Munich-based start-up had already explained Blickfeld’s technology in detail to the eleven-member jury in September and thus prevailed against the other nine finalists in the competition.
Blickfeld, a leading provider of solid-state LiDAR technology, has been awarded 100,000 Euro for achieving first place in the “Start me up!” contest, which is organized by the business magazine BILANZ. The Munich-based start-up competed with a total of 1,200 applicants, ten of whom had reached the final round.
The Munich-based LiDAR company Blickfeld has been awarded the German Innovation Award in the startup category. The jury rated the level of innovation and market opportunities of the new technology as major plus points.
“You made it. You fought. You convinced. You deserve it.” Those words are written on the DAHO.AM start-up challenge’s winner certificate. And we are beyond proud to have them hanging in our office.
