About the 12 startups from the Business Generator program presenting at Demo Day

  • Amertat Energy

Amertate’s solution is a small-scale high torque Vertical Axis Wind Turbine (VAWT). We have a patented product to solve a global problem in the energy sector. Our VAWT maximizes energy output in average wind speed, thereby increasing the availability of green energy and reducing reliance on fossil fuels.

The energy challenges in our planet require urgent attention. These challenges include high electricity transmission costs, limited solar energy in the Nordic countries, conflicts over non-recyclable wind turbine blades, and the incompatibility of small-scale wind turbines with harsh climates and residential areas.

  • Arivin Therapeutics

Arivin therapeutics is utilizing novel chemistry to develop molecules that target bacterial offensive and defensive virulence factors and which are highly effective against World Health Organization top priority pathogens. Unlike antibiotics, these novel therapies evade bacterial resistance mechanisms. The technology also has the potential to be extended towards other diseases and indications.

Antimicrobial resistance (AMR) represents one of the biggest global challenges, with 1.27M directly attributable deaths. This is predicted to increase to 10 Million deaths per year in 2050 with expected healthcare costs ranging between US$ 1 trillion to US$ 3.4 trillion, an increase of 780%. Both the EU and the World Health Organization (WHO) have recognized the huge problem and need for innovation.

Equivalent of 500 billion T-shirts is produced annually from virgin raw materials that all have sustainability issues, and only 1% of the materials are recycled back to new textiles! In other words, the industry is consuming massive amounts of virgin raw materials (120 million tons annually) and the vast majority of clothing and textiles end up being burnt or landfilled. Currently there are no technologies existing in the market to drive the transformation to circular economy.

  • VitalSigns

Detects, records, analyzes, and documents body sounds, but also performs all other necessary examinations simultaneously. Our device takes the temperature, blood oxygen saturation, ECG, pulse, respiratory phase and rate, blood pressure and heart rate variability among others, all during the same time and process of using a stethoscope, almost exactly as doctors have used it so far. This will reduce the time needed to perform these examinations to a fraction of today’s time spent and increase the diagnostic accuracy by AI data analysis.

Medical doctors today are under an immense pressure, having to manage ever increasing patient numbers resulting in very little time spent per patient. General practitioners in Finland typically have 15-20 minutes per patient, considerably less in most other countries. During this time, they need to read the patient’s history, listen to their present complains and perform physical examinations, such as, blood pressure, pulse, oxygen saturation, temperature, and auscultation of (listening to) lungs and the heart, plus other more specific exams to come to a possible diagnosis. They also must document all these in the patient’s file, which at the moment is either by typing or dictating the text, which altogether takes a considerable portion of the allocated timeslot.
