Venture Academy winner

26 June 2019

Monday june 24 was the grand finale of the Venture Academy, the startup incubation program at PLNT. Teams that made it to the finals pitched their businesses to the professional jury. And since it was such a nice and sunny day, the event was hosted at the PLNT rooftop!

So who is the winner of this Venture Academy edition? It is Peter Vanik from the startup AR World! AR World aims to combine bleeding-edge augmented reality technology with satellite navigation to visualise 3D models in the real world. He won the PLNT ‘Ready to launch’ coaching package worth €4,000, to further develop his startup, as well as a workspace at PLNT.

Aside from the jury, the audience also got a chance to vote. The audience prize was awarded to Ithaca. The startup that has made the biggest progress throughout the programme was also recognized, congratulations to Architectural Brief Creator. Well done with pivoting your business model (multiple times!).
