Digital Lab Award 2020

As part of Vodafone Innovation, we have again made a significant contribution to this year’s Digital Lab Award with UPLIFT. We are once again one of the top Innovation Labs in Germany and were honoured by Capital magazine in the study “Corporations on the trail of start-ups 2020”.

EVENT: RHINELAND PITCH UPLIFT SPECIAL – PROPTECH

On June 8th we hosted the virtual Rhineland Pitch UPLIFT Special on PropTech together with our Partner STARTPLATZ. Aspiring founders from PropTech – networked buildings and the digital real estate industry – presented their business model in front of the jury and the community. Congrats to the winner: Ener-IQ!

UPLIFT PARTNER: getbaff

Combining analogue and digital content? getbaff makes this possible with the help of its augmented reality platform and brings images to life. In doing so, getbaff is constantly evolving and working on new solutions – like the new Software Development Kit (SDK). getbaff gets IT and marketing support from the accelerator program Vodafone UPLIFT.

UPLIFT PARTNER: How I Like

In everyday office life many people do not necessarily have variety on their menu. How would it be if you could provide yourself with healthy, fresh meals directly at the workplace in the future? A smart refrigerator called “How I Like” even makes this possible without contact. We’ll show you how the start-up “How I Like” simplifies catering at the office with a clever IoT service.

EVENT: B&P VIRTUAL CONFERENCE

We supported the Virtual Founders Breakfast of our close Partner Bits & Pretzels. With 35.000 viewers it was remarkable to see, how many founders have to face crucial questions right now and seeking for answers.

UPLIFT PARTNER: IT’S MY BIKE

Bicycle theft seems to have become a popular sport, especially in big cities. But thieves are living dangerously in the digital age. The start-up “It’s my bike” has developed a smart theft protection for e-bikes and brings the Internet of Things to a bike with a GPS tracker. Connected and supported by Vodafone UPLIFT.

UPLIFT PARTNER: WERKSTA.TT

Can you imagine that around 1.6 billion tons of food are thrown away every year? Bakeries in particular often prefer to produce a little more than too little. This prompted the founders of “Werksta.tt” to develop a solution for intelligent baking planning. The young company wants to minimize food waste with artificial intelligence. We support werksta.tt with our PACESETTER.

Digital Demo Day 2020

The technology industry is constantly generating new ideas that re-explore the possibilities of the digital world. You were able to discover some exciting innovations on February 13th at the DigitalDemoDay2020 in Düsseldorf. We were also part of UPLIFT and three IoT partner start-ups. We have summarized the highlights of the day for you.
