The Demo Day of TechNet track of the start-up accelerator GenerationS by RVC took place in St. Petersburg. The winners shared the prize fund of 1 million roubles and received an invitation to the final of GenerationS-2017.

The team from Perm took the first place. Its participants developed project FDM ver. 2.0, which is a smart extruder for a 3D printer that allows printing products from composite materials and refractory thermoplastics. The start-up received 500 thousand roubles for the development of the project.


The second place and 300 thousand roubles were given to the team from Yekaterinburg. It developed an innovative SEMA moisture dehydrator, which, unlike silica gel, is easily disposed of. The design provides protection of various cargoes from moisture, condensation and so-called container rain, bacterial damage and corrosion during transportation.


The third place and 200 thousand roubles went to the project "New-generation polymeric additives" from Obninsk. New polymers have an increased heat resistance, the performance characteristics of finished products have become better, the toxicity during heating and burnin g has decreased, the content of polymer compositions has decreased due to poly-functional properties.

In addition, the jury noted the software package for 3D modelling VR Concept from the Moscow region (4th place) and the technology of heat-conducting polymer composites AAC Polymers from Volgograd (5th place). All the finalists will present their projects at the GenerationS-2017 finals and compete for the prize fund of 16 million roubles.


In addition, five participants of the accelerator — a system of robotic warehouse Cybersklad, SaaS-service of preparation and maintenance of documents for testing industrial safety laboratories Lab365, SEMA, Stimulus Group and FDM ver. 2.0 — signed an agreement of understanding with Sberinvest, whose representatives offered the projects opportunities for further cooperation and attracting funding.

A total of 12 projects took part in the acceleration. For three months, they developed business models and made plans to develop their business.

"Together with ODK-Saturn, we’ve selected projects that not only correspond to the tasks of the corporate customer, but also are attractive to investors. In the future, the accelerator participants can become part of the Factory of the Future, which will help attract young technology entrepreneurs and further development of innovation infrastructure", the head of the accelerator GenerationS Ekaterina Petrova noted.
