OUR TEAMS

Below you can read about the teams selected for the Ignite 2022 program

MindMatters

We are building a marketplace for peer-to-peer mental health support. It provides a networking solution for people who can not have immediate access to psychotherapy due to its costs or to the long queues of the public sector. The network allows users to book sessions with helpers who have already gone through for example burnout, anxiety or depression

AR OUTDOOR ADVENTURE GAMES

Our goal is to create more entertainment opportunities for smaller cities, promote healthy lifestyles, and make the real world around us as exciting as video games, movies, and books. Our product is a mobile app offering augmented reality (AR) outdoor adventure games. The games will highlight interesting smaller-scale details of urban and natural environments, giving players a chance to rediscover their own cities. The real objects will be combined with stunning 3D visuals to form puzzles integrated into an exciting narrative.

Burroo

We are creating an app that gamifies improving biodiversity. It motivates people to go outside like Pokémon Go, but instead of catching Pokémon’s, you are building habitats for animals. After building you can share fruits of your labor and gain points and rewards on our app.We are making money by selling parts to build the habitats. Assembling and installing them and then sharing the results gives an amazing opportunity for families to spend time together in a meaningful way.

SPORTS NDT-SOLUTIONS

Baseball bats break, pole vaulting poles break, ski poles break. Approximately four ice hockey sticks break every NHL game. They don’t break randomly! They break due to imperfections in their carbon fiber structure. We’re using NDT-testing to detect those flaws and stop the equipment from breaking at the wrong time. Starting from hockey, we’ll conquer this multimillion market in its entirety. No more broken sticks - not on our watch.

Online MARKETPLACE for student designs

To ensure the security, the platform withholds the payment until the delivery is made and confirmed

Zero

We are an intermediary between companies with valuable excess materials from previous construction projects and other companies that prefer to use secondary materials as input for upcoming production with more sustainable building plans.
