Congratulations to all the finalists, whom you can see in this video of the awards ceremony at Munich.
Last week, Elektor-TV presented a conversation between Eben Upton
, co-founder of RaspberryPi, and Jan Buiting, Editor-in-Chief of Elektor. This interview took place at the electronica
show at Munich, on the stand of the famous fast forward
competition for new electronics start-ups jointly organized by Elektor and Messe Munich. The second instance of this international competition attracted around 30 fledgling companies whose projects, after preselection, were submitted to critical examination by a jury of experts presided over by Clemens Valens, the head of Elektor Labs. The projects are presented to the worldwide electronics community on elektorlabs.com
. However, only the finalists of the contest were invited to present their creations to the public at Munich.
