After two successful editions, the Demo Day of Startup in Residence took place for the third time on December 4th. Four startups demonstrated their innovative solutions for urban challenges of the City of The Hague to the public after the four months ‘in residence program, which they developed together with the problem owners within the municipality. For example, TrustTester Solutions presented his patented technology for improving the election process for Dutch citizens abroad, Envision Technologies demonstrated their smart glasses for the visually impaired, Get Chef’s presented a brilliant solution for food waste in the City Hall and Sustainable Buildings presented their monitor for the smart management and control of heat pumps.
A great ending to a successful 3rd edition of SIR. With a lot of enthusiasm from the audience about the innovations that startups bring to The Hague. We look forward to see what these collaborations will bring for the next year! See the photo report here!
