In June the Challenge First Step jury selected six potential startups from Leti and Liten. The project leaders received support with the business creation process this fall and will update the jury on their progress in late November. The jury will then decide whether or not to fund any of the projects.
The projects address a variety of fields: three in information and communication technologies (InP optical transceivers, touch sensors made from piezoelectric materials, and an instrumented bicycle outfitted with sensors to measure structural integrity), two in energy (ultra-thin, conformable, flexible low-cost batteries and GaN-based miniature power supplies for domestic electrical distribution networks), and one focusing on the design and fabrication of complex microfluidic systems.
