"Prodsmart

For decades, production processes have barely evolved for the majority of small businesses who make up Europe’s manufacturing industry, says Gonçalo Fortes, Prodsmart’s co-founder and CEO. His company sells a layer of virtual automation software which converts smartphones and tablets into sensors, to transform any manufacturing plant into a digital “smart factory”. Its real-time process-tracking collects data directly from the shop floor, eliminating the need for paper and providing real-time analytics to inform waste reduction and efficiency improvements. Prodsmart raised $150,000 (£112,000) from 500 Startups at launch and secured a seed funding round of $1.5 million in February 2018 from Join Capital, Caixa Capital, Innovation Nest and angel investors. prodsmart.com

James

Founded in 2013 by João Menano, Samuel Hopkins and Pedro Fonseca, James (formerly CrowdProcess) allows credit-risk managers and banks to create, validate, deploy and monitor regulation-ready, high-performing predictive models. Menano argues that it has become harder and harder for lenders to constantly update systems to cope with new regulations and new software developments, so James attaches itself to existing systems to provide constantly updated machine-learning software specialising in pattern detection. The company has raised $3.9 million in funding from private investors and VCs and opened offices in New York. james.finance

By Oliver Franklin-Wallis

Talkdesk

Talkdesk co-founders Cristina Fonseca and Tiago Paiva were inspired by success at a Twilio hackathon to base Talkdesk on the Silicon Valley model of “being truly disruptive with a capacity to scale fast”, says Fonseca. The company provides call-centre software that allows new centres to launch without the traditional expensive big switches and routers. Talkdesk customers require no hardware, phones, coding or downloads – just an internet connection. Backers, include Salesforce Ventures, DFJ and Storn Ventures, have helped funding for the San Francisco- and Lisbon-based company rise to $24.5 million. talkdesk.com

Codacy

Codacy was born from co-founders Jaime Jorge and João Caxaria’s frustration at having to manually review endless lines of code in previous software development and engineering jobs. Its automated platform integrates into existing systems and syncs with tools such as GitHub Enterprise to constantly review lines of code and search for mistakes – helping, according to Jorge, developers work faster. An August 2017 funding round of $5.1 million, led by Seedcamp, Faber Ventures, JOIN Capital, EQT Ventures and Caixa Capital, takes total investment to $6.7 million. The company now counts PayPal, Adobe, Cancer Research UK and Deliveroo among its customers. codacy.com

Veniam

Co-founders João Barros and Susana Sargento developed technology to turn vehicles into wireless hotspots during their time as professors at the Universities of Aveiro and Porto respectively. They then partnered with former Zipcar CEO Robin Chase and CTO Roy Russell to roll out Veniam’s in-vehicle Wi-Fi service across Porto and Singapore. The company now plans to provide cloud-based software linking and guiding autonomous vehicles. “AVs [autonomous vehicles] can scan the road and surrounding vehicles, but they can’t know about what’s ahead or what the surrounding vehicles intend to do unless they’re connected,” Barros explains. The company has raised $26.9 million, led by Verizon Ventures. veniam.com

Sensei

Sensei founders Vasco Portugal, Joana Rafael and Paulo Carreira took their fledgling business-intelligence platform for retail from the Technical University of Lisbon to the Techstars METRO Retail Accelerator Berlin in 2017. This resulted in February 2018’s €500,000 pre-seed funding from German retailer METRO and Portugal’s Sonae. The company turns any installed camera into a powerful sensor to capture and raw in-store digital data. The big idea, according to the founders, is to build customer profiles to increase sales. sensei.tech
A startup guide to Lisbon

WHERE TO EAT
Copenhagen Coffee Lab, Escolas Gerais 34, Alfama. Founded in Denmark in 2013, Lisbon’s mini-chain of Scandinavian-style coffee shops has Wi-Fi – despite some tables having a “no laptops” policy. The venue’s regulars love its understated Scandi cool for meetings and coffee breaks. copenhagencoffeelab.com

WHERE TO WORK
Second Home, Time Out Market, Mercado da Ribeira. This upmarket shared workspace is at the heart of the city’s tech community and the centre of the Cais do Sodre district. The nearby Pink Street is great for bars, restaurants and clubs.

DefinedCrowd

With most of the attention in AI focused on developing algorithms, its weak spot – and DefinedCrowd’s USP – is in collating high-quality data that’s properly labelled to train those AIs quickly and efficiently. Founded in 2015 by Amy Du and Daniela Braga, a data scientist and natural-language-processing expert, the company combines its crowd platform Neevo – where anyone can earn money helping label data – with a user interface and an API to search for and select appropriate datasets. The company raised $1.1 million in 2016 – including funds from Amazon and Sony – but has since relied on customer contracts to grow finance. definedcrowd.com

Heptasense

Heptasense co-founders Ricardo Santos and Mauro Peixe started out developing AI software that learns human gestures and emotions to help their elderly relatives navigate modern life. Their pivot was rapid. Launched in January 2017, Heptasense connects to cameras, motion detectors and touchscreens to measure human responses. The company is working with BMW, among others, on hand-gesture controls for drivers and a security company in the US on airport monitoring and threat detection. Santos and Peixe bootstrapped the company, relying on customer contracts for cashflow. “Investors wanted us to focus on three-year projections and follow the footsteps of other companies, but we were doing something different,” says Santos. heptasense.com

Aptoide

Proving the Portuguese appetite for tricky journeys didn’t end with Ferdinand Magellan, Aptoide CEO Paulo Trezentos launched against Google – building a third-party app store for Android and positioning it as an alternative to Google Play. It now hosts more than 750,000 apps, including the likes of Facebook, Instagram and Clash of Clans. Seed funding of €750,000 from Portugal Ventures led to a €3.7 million Series A round in 2015, followed in November 2017 by an $16.8 million Initial Coin Offering using AppCoins – an in-app currency for purchases, game upgrades and paying other users. Coin miners are paid if they engage with advertising – strengthening Aptoide’s ad revenue. aptoide.com

Probe.ly

Nuno Loureiro, Probe.ly’s founder and CEO, spent 15 years fighting hackers. He found testing security complicated – white-hat penetration-testing and bug bounties are the gold standard, but few companies employ both on a daily basis. Probe.ly’s software runs continuously on apps and sites, searching for flaws and launching attacks to analyse their response. Unlike its competitors, Probe.ly is aimed at developers, not security professionals. Founded in 2016, the company raised €620,000 through winning the Lisbon Challenge acceleration programme and 2017’s Caixa Empreender Award. It launched in private beta in 2017 and, in March 2018, raised €435,000 from investors including Caixa Capital. probe.ly "

"Sulapac

Eco-friendly startups are becoming increasingly prevalent, and Sulapac is one of the frontrunners. Using renewable and sustainable raw materials, the company, which won the Green Alley Award for startups in the circular economy, is creating fully biodegradable packaging material that can be used to package watches or create tubs for makeup. The Finnish co-founders were inspired by the grand woodland that surrounds them – though the wood for Sulapac’s material comes from nearby Nordic forests. A number of different cosmetic and jewellery companies have started to use Sulapac’s greener, cleaner packaging materials. sulapac.com

Blok

Founded last year, this startup helps to smooth the rigmarole of selling your home by using AI to take away many of the complications – including pesky real estate brokers. Co-founders Rudi Skogman and Olli Gunst have raised €1.6 million from investors to develop the company. Blok is still in its earliest stages of development, but the first signs are promising: in its first year of existence, the company’s AI helped sell 70 apartments. With the company taking a 0.75 per cent of all sales – and the average property selling in just over a week – it’s a smart business with firm foundations. blok.ai

Blueprint Genetics

Healthtech continues to be a growing sector, and Blueprint Genetics, founded in 2012, is taking full advantage of that increasing interest. The company provides clinicians and their patients with comprehensive, high-quality tools and resources that help diagnose genetic conditions from its bases in Helsinki, San Francisco and Dubai. With more than 220 different diagnostic tests available, searching through our genome to sniff out everything from hereditary cancers to the potential for heart problems using nothing more than a DNA sample, it’s a one-stop diagnosis shop. Last summer it raised €14m in a funding round that’s allowed it to tweak its tech further. blueprintgenetics.com

Canatu

Named after carbon nanotube, one of the materials first studied at Aalto University’s nanomaterials lab (to which the firm owes its inspiration), Canatu is one of Finland’s biggest physical tech success stories. The company, founded in 2004, has more than 100 patents, and supplies conductive films and touch sensors to touch module vendors and manufacturers working in the consumer electronics and automotive industries. Its main development is an all-new material it called Carbon NanoBud, which can be formed into almost any shape without breaking, thanks to a high stretch rate and small bending radius. canatu.com

WHERE TO VISIT
Teurastamo was once a working abattoir, but since 2012 has been an arty haven for culture and fantastic food. More than a dozen businesses have set up shop here, including restaurants and roasteries.

WHERE TO PLAY
Kuudes Linja is the place to catch live music in Helsinki. And if you can’t get in, hop next door to Kaiku or Siltanen – both equally excellent.

Carbo Culture

Turning methane-spewing biomass into high-carbon charcoal might not seem like the cleanest process in the world, but Helsinki startup Carbo Culture – co-founded by a Californian, a Belgian and a Finn – is a green company. Its patented technology transfers waste into charcoal in a carbon neutral way, allowing a cleaner, more efficient way to make charcoal and charcoal products. Miraculously, the process also permanently sequesters carbon – one of the biggest pollutants in the process – so that it doesn’t harm the planet. The tech managed to lure the likes of Rovio chairman Mika Ihamuotila to stump up €550,000 of seed funding earlier this year. carboculture.com

HappyOrNot

One of Finland’s biggest success stories, HappyOrNot is the company behind the real-time mood sensor stands that you see at the end of airport security checks, on shop floors and by office doorways. The company started out with a single terminal in a small supermarket and now has countless terminals logging hundreds of millions of responses at airports – including Heathrow – and businesses across the world. They’ve also secured €13.2 million in investment. With that success, co-founders Heikki Väänänen and Ville Levaniemi will be hitting the big green smiley face button. happy-or-not.com

ICEYE

Finland’s first-ever commercial satellite – and the world’s first synthetic aperture radar (SAR) satellite under 100 kilograms – was launched into orbit from India earlier this year. The payload that went up into space was the ICEYE-X1, which provides a bird’s-eye view of the planet, even in darkness and through cloud cover, using the SAR technology. The ICEYE-X1 launch was just the first of many: using $13 million of investment raised last August, ICEYE plan to launch 18 microsatellites into orbit, which will beam back data the company can then sell to maritime operators, insurance firms, and agriculture businesses. iceye.com

Oura

The quantified-self movement continues apace, with Helsinki startup Oura taking it in an altogether more fashionable direction. Its healthtech wearables aren’t rubbery plastic bands that slip around your wrist but sleek, stripped-back rings. More than 15,000 Oura rings were pre-ordered in the first two months they were available to reserve, with more than half of orders coming from the health-conscious United States. The ring tracks sleep patterns, making suggestions for users to change their lifestyles to restore their sleep to a more healthy routine. Big things are expected from the company, which was named one of Finland’s most promising startups earlier this year. ouraring.com

Varjo

Virtual reality tech has never fully lived up to its promise. Whether it’s the dizzy spells some people feel after donning a headset or the slight unreality as a result of fuzzy graphics, something feels amiss. Varjo aims to counteract both problems by increasing the resolution on VR displays, including the Rift and Vive by 17 times – taking it up to the same resolution we see through our eyes. In the two short years the company has been in existence, it’s managed to bring VR forwards leaps and bounds – and raised nearly €13 million in the process. varjo.com

Wolt

Uber Eats and Deliveroo may have a dominant hand in many of the world’s markets, but food delivery service Wolt is making major inroads across the Nordics and Baltics. It claims more than 1,400 restaurants are signed up to the service in over 20 cities, while backers including Supercell CEO Ilkka Paananen and Skype founder Niklas Zennström have helped the company raise €13.3 million to date, with plans for future funding rounds on the horizon. Convenience is king for modern-day consumers, and Wolt – founded in 2014 – recognised that earlier than most. wolt.com "

"Harver

Harver founder and CEO Barend Raaff was working at online strategy and marketing startup Kominski when a friend and CEO of a large call centre complained of huge staff turnover. Realising hiring decisions were to blame, he developed AI-powered pre-selection platform TalentPitch to replace CVs with online judgment, personality and intelligence tests. Harver’s algorithms also use the data to calculate a candidate’s suitability. As of January 2018, the company had raised $15.6 million (£11.5 million) and boasts Zappos, Netflix, Booking.com, Vodafone, OpenTable and Casper as clients. At the end of 2017, Harver adapted TalentPitch for smaller companies. The elevator pitch? “Organisations using Harver hire better people, period,” says Raaff. harver.com

Otrium

“Fashion brands struggle with an abundance of excess inventory collecting dust in a warehouse,” explains Otrium’s cofounder Milan Daniels, 26. Launched two years ago by Daniels and Max Klijnstra, 27, Otrium is effectively Shopify for fashion brands, providing the e-commerce technology stack and logistics handling to create online outlet/clearance stores. The company’s technology and marketplace full-service offer is aimed at keeping entry costs low – helping up-and-coming brands in particular shift excess inventory, although each brand does ship its own orders. Claiming 300,000 users and 60 brands across Benelux countries, Otrium recently raised €750,000 (£662,000) – bringing total funding to €1.6 million (£1.4 million) – to fuel international expansion. otrium.nl

Hiber

When Dutch satellite start-up Magnitude Space rebranded last year, it chose the name Hiber for two reasons, according to co-founder and CFO Coen Janssen – the LPA Network provider connects nano-satellites with modems that effectively sleep 99 per cent of the time – until a satellite flies overhead. “It’s like they are hibernating – hence Hiber,” he explains. “And it was also one of the last unclaimed five-letter words on the internet.” Having secured €3 million in private funding and backing from the European Space Agency, Hiber launches two small satellites in spring 2018. Janssen is targeting the likes of truck trailers, hazardous chemicals, cattle in Australia and trawlers at sea to host its cheap tracking devices as it scales production in 2019. hiber.global

Shypple

Over 90 per cent of the world’s international trade travels by ship, but when Shypple founder Jarell Habets worked on logistics for the 2016 Rio de Janeiro Olympics, he found the industry dominated by freight forwarding agents – middlemen in manual organisations which make shipping slow, error-prone and expensive. “They’re like travel agents in 1996,” he argues. “But they have no competition from disruptors.” He launched Shypple the same year. The company provides a digital dashboard for businesses to search and book freight shipping directly – benchmarking quotes and offering real-time tracking. In February, the company received undisclosed funding from regional state investor the Brabant Development Corporation to finance their international expansion.

Europe’s print industry is worth around €160 billion per year, according to market analysts Smithers Pira – larger than the continents €135 billion car export trade. The vast majority of these orders still take place offline, according to Hans Scheffer, Helloprint co-founder and CEO. Helloprint’s platform connects smaller print producers with over 200,000 customers across the Netherlands, Belgium, France, Italy, United Kingdom, Spain, and Ireland. Offering free online designs and free delivery, the company has seen growth of 4,000 per cent in the last four years. In February, the company closed an undisclosed multi-million euro funding round with existing investors Bregal Unternehmerkapital and Project A, aimed at expanding its European network. helloprint.co.uk

Fairphone

Fairphone’s bold launch in 2013 promised easily repairable smartphones built to last using only sustainable, ethically mined materials. The Fairphone 1 raised funds from crowdsourcing and sold some 135,000 handsets – but struggled when suppliers retired the necessary spare parts and stopped releasing chip software updates. 2015’s Fairphone 2 fared better. In September 2017, co-founder Bas van Abel secured €6.5 million from social venture capital fund Pymwymic – making it one of the top ten fund raising Amsterdam startups of the year – to scale its approach to building sustainable electronics “throughout the entire electronics value chain, including material sourcing, production, distribution and recycling,” according to van Abel. Expect the Fairphone 3 this autumn. fairphone.com

Ohpen

When Chris Zadeh, CEO of Ohpen, ran an online broker, he spent ten years “cursing unreliable technology that was almost impossible to adapt to our needs,” he explains. “We put our money where our mouth was and created a complete new core banking engine from scratch.” Ohpen’s premise is simple – existing banks and financial service providers are hampered by legacy systems. Ohpen’s cloud-based core banking SaaS replaces the entire back end, allowing clients to focus on front-end experience and brand differentiation. In July 2017, Ohpen secured €15 million from private equity firm Amerborgh, which then led a €25 million Series C round in February 2018 – the cash will help expand into France, Canada, Australia and the United States. ohpen.com

MessageBird

MessageBird offers an SMS, voice and video platform for companies and developers that powers, for instance, the verification messages you get when you sign up for a new app. It’s a fast-growing market with more than a dozen cloud-based firms. MessageBird founder and chief executive Robert Vis bootstrapped the company’s launch in 2011, forged deals and built interfaces with 220 telecom carriers worldwide to build the only platform running on telecoms carrier-grade infrastructure and not the internet – making it faster, more reliable and cheaper, says Vis. In October 2017, MessageBird’s stealth years ended - it landed $60 million in series A funding - the largest ever early-stage venture capital investment into a European software company, led by Accel Partners with Atomico and Y-Combinator to fuel aggressive expansion. messagebird.com

Hotelchamp

Travel agents may have disappeared from the high street but their replacements – travel booking sites – dominate the travel market with commission fees of up to 30%, hitting hotels turnover, according to Kristian Valk, co-founder and CEO of Hotelchamp. Valk launched the company after watching a friend click from booking site to hotel web page then back to the site to pay. The company’s SaaS AI offers personalised incentives, special offers and best possible prices to encourage direct booking. Launched in April 2015, the company raised €1.7 million seed funding from a wide pool of private investors, returning for a €2.25 million round in August 2017. Clients include Bilderberg Hotels, Corinthia Hotels, Palazzo Versace and Apex Hotels. hotelchamp.com

Felyx

With the city’s drive to reduce carbon and liberal attitude to two wheels, Felyx, a shared electric scooter platform, is as Amsterdam as the Amstel. Co-founders Maarten Poot and Quinten Selhorst raised €400,000 from private investors and €450,000 from a crowdfunding round to launch in July 2017. An app allows registered users – currently waiting list only places – to locate, reserve and unlock available e-scooters. A ride costs 30 cents per minute, and the system is free-floating – scooters can be left anywhere. When the battery drops to 20 per cent, the scooter signals HQ and a team member comes to recharge it. felyx.nl"

"The Clean Energy Council Awards, presented at the Australian Clean Energy Summit Gala Dinner, recognise excellence in the clean energy sector.

2018 Clean Energy Council Awards winners

Congratulations to the winners of the 2018 Clean Energy Council Awards.

Outstanding Contribution to Industry Award winner - Nigel Morris



The Clean Energy Council has awarded the Outstanding Contribution to Industry Award to Nigel Morris, a pioneer of the Australian solar industry through his work at Rainbow Power Company, BP Solar, RoofJuice and Solar Analytics.

Nigel is a determined advocate for solar power and has been a champion of quality and integrity throughout his 25-year career in the solar industry. He serves as a mentor to many, is a blogger and podcaster and was a driver behind the establishment of the CEC's Solar Retailer Code of Conduct.

Innovation Award winner - Energy Queensland



Energy Queensland, partnering with the Queensland Government's Department of Natural Resources, Mines and Energy, won the Innovation Award for developing a solution that delivered affordable access to renewable energy for public housing tenants in Lockhart River. Residents of the remote community depended heavily on diesel power, and the project delivered solar and storage with intelligent control systems. The money saved from reducing diesel use is being returned to the community.

Business Community Engagement Award winner - TasNetworks



TasNetworks worked with the Australian National University and ARENA to turn 40 homes on Tasmania’s Bruny Island into “mini power stations”. The project involved installing rooftop solar and batteries, along with energy management software from Reposit Power that allows households to actively trade the energy they produce and store with their electricity provider. The project will help reduce diesel use and the island’s dependence on the cable connecting it with Tasmania.

Award finalists

The quality of entries for the 2018 awards was exceptional. See below for the 2018 finalists.

Innovation Award finalists

Aalborg CSP
provided the concentrated solar thermal technology for Sundrop Farms in South Australia, which uses a combination of sea water and sunlight to grow vegetables in the desert. The highly innovative project grows 17,000 tonnes of tomatoes annually, representing 15 per cent of the country’s tomato market. The technology produces solar energy and desalinates sea water from the nearby Spencer Gulf.

[b]Energy Developments[/b] worked with ARENA to deliver the Coober Pedy Renewable Hybrid project for the District Council of Coober Pedy. Through a mix of wind, solar, batteries and advanced control systems, the project was able to reduce diesel use and emissions at a remote, iconic Australian mining town. The project successfully integrated variable renewable sources to provide a reliable power system.

Tesla and Neoen partnered with the South Australian Government to build the world’s largest lithium battery. The project benefited from the personal involvement of Tesla founder Elon Musk, whose tweets became international news and gave the project plenty of public attention. The Hornsdale Power Reserve was delivered within the self-imposed 100-day deadline, in time for the 2017 summer.

Business Community Engagement Award finalists

BJCE Australia offered clean energy grants to residents living within 5 km of the Gullen Range Wind Farm. An energy audit helps people understand the savings they can make to both their carbon emissions and power bills, and a second phase allows them to apply for a solar hot water or solar power system, or an energy efficiency package. The program is intended to run for the life of the wind farm and create positive relationships with the community.

Synergy partnered with the Science Teachers Association of Western Australia to create the Synergy Schools Solar Challenge. The idea was to get people in the community excited about the potential of new clean energy technologies such as solar to meet future energy needs. As part of the challenge, students in Year 6 and Year 8 were sent solar car kits, which helped them understand and apply the science behind renewable energy by building and racing them throughout the term.
Awards ceremony

The 2018 Clean Energy Council Awards were presented on Tuesday 31 July at the NAB Gala Dinner at the 2018 Australian Clean Energy Summit.
