What a great sucess for Wandelbots! The German startup, founded in Dresden, won the 2019 Overseas Talent Entrepreneurship Conference (OTEC) and came out on top of more than 4,000 projects worldwide. After over three months of fierce competition among 800 innovation projects worldwide, 23 projects made it to the final, which was held in Chaoyang District, Beijing.
Founder & CEO of Wandelbots, Christian Piechnick, convinced the jury not only with a outstanding pitch presentation, but also with the product itself. Wandelbots enables non-programmers to teach industrial robots faster and cheaper using smart clothing. Based on sensors attached to clothes, the Wandelbots software backend tracks human motion to live-control industrial robots. Shortly after the event, a discussion forum between Daimler, StreetScooter (Deutsche Post DHL Group) and awesome capital took place to emphasize the bridge of digital entrepreneurship between Europe and China.
