There was great anticipation ahead of the Start-up Session award ceremony at the IASEXPO Forum. Six fledgling companies presented their innovative business ideas for drone applications to visitors and investors.
A panel of experts consisting of Kay Wackwitz (Drone Industry Insights, DRONEII), Simon Hentschel (Frankfurt Business Media), Jannis Töpfer (McKinsey & Company) and Jörg Bartsch (Business Angels Frankfurt) judged the ideas.
The assessment criteria included factors such as sustainability, innovation prowess, anticipated economic volume, progress made by the project and marketing strategy.
Innovative solutions for disaster prevention, inspecting industrial plants and streaming data from drone cameras directly to the mobile end devices of recipients such as first-aiders in real time were presented, along with innovative and flexible drones that can be equipped with cameras or grippers as required for the relevant application.
The judges ultimately picked FAIRFLEET, a full-service provider for drones, as the winner. From consulting and planning to implementation and data processing, FAIRFLEET covers all aspects of commercial drone use from a single source.
The winner will have the opportunity to participate in a stand at IAS EXPO 2019 in Stuttgart, 17 to 19 September 2019, and have a short image film produced.
