In 2016, First Place in the “Start-up” category went to Botfactory, a New York-based manufacturer or desktop PCB printers. “We need to get our product in front of as many people as possible, as we are finding that we need more qualified leads to expand and grow. This means targeted advertising, improving brand awareness and content generation,” the team said.

First Place in the “Prototype” category went to MOWEA, a Berlin, Germany-based startup that developed small, modular wind turbines.
