In April this year, MBS students Fabian Konrad, Alexander Zettl and Luca Stepanian were the winners of the Start-up Pitching Competition MBS LAUNCHIT, relegating seven other student teams to second place and beyond, and qualifying for representing MBS at the University Startup World Cup (USWC) in Copenhagen.
Just yesterday, Fabian and Alexander have headed for Denmark to compete against 70+ teams from universities from more than 40 countries – and win € 25.000.
Their business idea, Helmight, is an innovative solar-powered headgear for cyclists featuring a lighting system that is attached to the helmet in an ergonomically intelligent way, braking lights that indicate the driving path, an acoustic alert system to inform nearby people in case of an accident, an SOS System that automatically drops an emergency call in case of an accident and many more features.
Good luck to Fabian and Alexander! Go, Team Helmight!
