Spin-Off company set up at Wrocław University of Science and Technology wins New Economy Heroes 2017 competition
Sky Tronic, a company supplying unmanned aerial vehicles, commonly referred to as drones, has been awarded as one of the most innovative and future-oriented Polish start-ups using the Internet of Things.
The business was set up by scientists and graduates of Wrocław University of Science and Technology and the University of Economy together with the WUST owned company Instytut Transferu Technologii (The Institute of Technology Transfer).
The New Economy Heroes 2017 competition was jointly organised by CodersTrust Polska, Business Link, Academic Incubators of Entrepreneurship and the Centre for Dialogue and Analyses Thinktank. Businesses eligible for the competition were start-ups using the Internet of Things, i.e. – to put it very simply – solutions which make it possible for devices to communicate between one another, collect information, process it, as well as making forecasts and drawing conclusions based on them.
The competition jury panel comprised experienced businesspeople, including the world-famous Danish entrepreneur Morten Lund, who over a span of several years has founded or invested in more than a hundred start-ups applying advanced technologies, such as Skype.
The panel decided that Sky Tronic was the most future-oriented and innovative contender and, in recognition of this, granted it the first prize.
