What an incredible week at GITEX GLOBAL and North Star! Our CEO, Dawid Kuchta, made it to the FINALS of the Supernova Pitch Competition, winning proud second place in the Overall Industry Pioneer category.
The Supernova Challenge is the biggest start-up pitch competition in the Middle East, Africa and South Asia. This year’s Supernova Challenge attracted over 600 applications from startups from over 41 countries, who battled it out for the region’s biggest prize and the North Star Dubai Supernova Champion title. This year's edition is being held under the patronage of Tim Draper Silicon Valley’s legendary venture capitalist who early invested in over 30 unicorns (including @Hotmail, Skype or Tesla).
Microamp Solutions was awarded second place in the the Overall Industry Pioneer category. Our solution was recognized for its strong commercial and sustainability impact. We are very proud of this remarkable distinction and we're continuing to push the boundaries of what’s possible to deliver super-fast and ultra-low latency performance into bandwidth-hungry applications such as industrial monitoring with 11K 360 cameras, VR remote object controlling or AR real-time assistance. This technology delivers the next-level performance and user experience beyond what is impossible with traditional cellular networks.
