AWARD took part in the Nordic Edge Fund Day event on 10-11th May 2023 in Stavanger, Norway. This exciting event brings together innovative start-ups and forward-thinking investors for a day filled with fun and funding opportunities. This exclusive gathering gives opportunities to the most promising Nordic start-ups offering them the stage to pitch their cutting-edge solutions to extensive international financial networks. This was a two day of networking, insights, and potential investments in the dynamic world of entrepreneurship.
After a record-breaking application round to Nordic Fund Day, the jury from Hafslund, ProVenture, Proptech1 and SNÖ has selected 11 promising start-ups to pitch to our international investor network among which was Applied Autonomy, one of the AWARD consortium partners: ´Applied Autonomy provides the xFlow platform where fleets consisting of different vehicles can be connected. It is agnostic with respect to both vehicle type and manufacturer and operations can then be monitored and optimized in line with the processes in place, always with the highest levels of cybersecurity. xFlow uses existing vehicle APIs and negates the need for extra vehicle-mounted hardware. ´
In his pitch, Olav Madland the CEO of Applied Autonomy, included a 1 slide presentation about AWARD, reflecting on the objectives of the project and so far achievements. This event was relevant to the AWARD project because logistics operators, investors and innovators are looking for 24×7 digital solutions that reduce emissions and costs. It gathered more than 100 Investors, innovators, logistics operators, and public transport stakeholders. You can download the presentation from here: AWARD H2020 – Presentations (award-h2020.eu)
