The recent competition at which Zubax was awarded top place, PowerUp! was held in Žofín Palace,  Prague last week and welcomed an array of promising technology companies to the fold. This year the competition saw over 300 applications from startups across Europe, which has almost doubled from last year. The main themes of the event circled around #energy #cleantech #mobility#cybersec #smog and #smartcity  as well as providing three top funding prizes and also providing networking opportunities, mentoring and pitching windows. The backing behind the event comes from the European Institute of Innovation and Technology which is driving the growth of sustainable energy through a number of sectors such as technology and education.

Whilst speaking recently to Estonian World , tech research leader of Zubax, Pavel Kirienko, was quoted as saying “we applied to the competition because it seemed very relevant – as this contest helps technological advancement for startups by providing funding and support to innovative ideas and teams.” Their prize was an award of 30,000 euros which will contribute to ongoing developments.

According to the article, Zubax Robotics will join over eighty sustainable initiatives that have already been supported by the European Institute’s InnoEnergy group. The exciting developments sprouting from Central and Eastern Europe, and particularly Estonia’s recent success story will contribute to the growing desire to work in industries that are mindful of sustainable footprints.
