Winners of GREEN LIGHT Programme. On April 12, 2018 the Technical University in Ostrava held the finals of the 5th year of GREEN LIGHT accelerator to support enterprise. Eight startup business projects were introduced.
The committee’s Grand Prix and a few other awards went to a project called Dustee. The initiator of the project, Nikola Carić, commented on his success, “I came up with the idea of a personal air quality monitor because I am worried about the poor air quality of air and it is my professional interest in the nonprofit organization Čisté nebe (‘Clear Skies’). Through Accelerator, I found an amazing team of people from various spheres with one common interest.”

The Quine Engine project came second: it is a platform to process and visualize ideas and products which need to be presented in 3D. “Generally people learn to understand easier and in more detail via 3D presentation, and our system helps programmers and graphic designers to make such presentations. Through GREEN LIGHT we clarified our business model and received contacts in the international market,” said Ondřej Vaňka, designer of the programme.

Third place was project Bellecup. Its prospective clients include plastic surgeons, one of which, MUDr. Libor Streit Ph.D., is the originator of the idea. “Our device to remove and process body fat considerably shortens the time of a surgery. We will use our award money to pay for international business trips to meet investors and prospective distributors,” he added. 38 projects applied in the 5th year of GREEN LIGHT Accelerator, eight of which successfully accomplished an intensive three-month programme for the teams to develop their products through workshops and personal consultations.
