Innovation Finds a Way! says the new slogan of the Design Terminal’s Mentoring Program. The three-month program was done virtually last spring and will be online this time as well. Still, startups from 13 countries and three continents applied, and Design Terminal selected 16 out of the 82, who then went on to the Virtual Power Camp for the final round of selection.
The 10 finalists are startups in areas like health, education and sustainability and include six Hungarian and four foreign companies — Chilean, French, Estonian and Spanish.
Spanish Heuristik software helps healthcare institutions enroll and identify patients and manage their information using their fingerprints.
