ScaleFocus Innovation Challenge

1

Our perpetual growth and strive for excellence is backboned by the entire company. Our top performers constantly share new innovative ideas. That is why, we decided to bring one raw concept to life via hosting an internal Innovation Challenge. Many colleagues wholeheartedly joined the challenge and presented various entrepreneurial software solutions, related to solving problems in:

  • HealthCare
  • Education
  • Lifestyle
  • Social applications

All ScaleFocus’ team members had the opportunity to participate. Eventually, 5 teams submitted their innovative ideas in the competition. The finalist was chosen after an internal company-wide vote and the jury’s decision, based on 3 criteria:

  • Innovation potential 
  • Business value
  • Social impact

The winning team will have 6 weeks to develop the hardware and software prototype of an affordable solution which will provide a particular group of physically disadvantaged people a radical change in their daily lives. The project’s goal is to provide affordable and useful aid to visually impaired people to help them navigate through the surrounding environment. Both a portable environment sensitive device and a supplementing mobile application providing audible instructions will be developed.

Our winning team will have the opportunity to visit Japan as an appraisal for all efforts.

Congratulations to all participants for their insightful ideas and the excellent presentations!
