Chennai: Entrepreneur First (EF), a leading UK-based global talent investor, unveiled its Online Demo Day, a virtual version of their India Demo Day, for the second cohort of startups from Bengaluru.
According to a press note, this first-of-its-kind Online Demo Day has unveiled nine exceptional founders and their five deep tech startups using cutting-edge technologies such as AI, IoT, robotics and computer vision. EF decided three weeks ago to switch to an online-only format, given the ongoing global coronavirus pandemic.
“While the format of today’s Demo Day event may have changed, the focus remains the same – introducing the globally important companies of the future to India’s best investors. Entrepreneur First believes that with the right support, one talented individual has the potential to fundamentally change the way an entire industry operates – which is perhaps even more important in this period of global upheaval,” said Matt Clifford, Co-founder and CEO, Entrepreneur First.
The startups showcased solutions ranging from AI for land investing, to early detection of chronic kidney disease; automatic video creation from text, to fresh food grading. The common thread through all these companies was the use of new age technologies such as AI, IoT and computer vision. They are: Healium Digital Healthcare, Real Analytics, Recreate AI, Unbox Robotics and QZense.
