The industrial startup beat out nine other candidates in the finals of Austria’s largest startup competition. UpNano has developed and patented high-resolution 3D printing for micro-components. “Everything is becoming smaller and smaller and more powerful. This also comprises a challenge for manufacturing industry”, stated founder Denise Mandt. “We can print a castle on a sharpened pencil tip,” she added. An UpNano print costs about half a million euros. The method is particularly interesting for medical technology, because living cells can also be incorporated.

Over the past months the #glaubandich-Challenge 2019 toured throughout Austria. In the preliminary selection process, it selected the best young startup in each of the following fields: MedTech (SteadySense), Mobility (Carployee), Tourism (RateBoard), Energy (Fishcon), Industry (UpNano) and FinTech (getsby).

How Austria Shapes Its Future with AI

Artificial intelligence (AI) is certainly the most powerful new technology available today. This is probably the reason why the underlying discussion is frequently driven by fear. Hollywood has also contributed to this. Half-human, half-machine mutants resembling Frankenstein and Terminator are the spectres unleased by AI. However, as is often the case, Hollywood’s fantasy has little to do with reality.
