After a few exciting weeks since the Top10 Nomination in April and the pitch presentation to the expert jury in May, it became clear to us on 19 June that Fabmatics is one of the winners of the Innovation Award of the Free State of Saxony. At the futureSAX Innovation Conference last Wednesday, Minister of Economic Affairs Martin Dulig presented awards to Saxony’s most innovative founders and entrepreneurs as well as the best knowledge and technology transfer projects to around 500 guests.
In the category “Saxon Innovation Award“, Fabmatics was able to secure second place with its freely navigating, mobile robot SCOUT, which allows scaling in size & form as well as in terms of the handling unit thanks to its hardware & software-based modular design.
First place went to INNOPERFORM GmbH from Malschwitz for its product arimeo CS, an innovative window rebate ventilator for plastic windows. Zellkraftwerk GmbH from Leipzig landed in third place for its unique hardware and software technology platform, which is successfully used in immunoncology, autoimmunity research or the development of cellular therapies. The three prize winners will receive prize funds totalling 50,000 Euros.
Congratulations to all winners of the “Saxon Innovation Award”, the “Saxon Founder Award”, the “Saxon Transfer Award” and the special prizes “futureSAX Audience Prize”, “Special Prize of the Saxon Chambers of Skilled Crafts” and “Special Prize for Technology Mediators”! A big thank you goes to the expert jury, the futureSAX team of Marina Heimann for this great and inspiring event and of course to our great and dedicated Fabmatics team!
