Additionally, the electricity provided through the plan comes from clean, sustainable energy sources.

EBAC: Escola Britânica de Artes Criativas & Tecnologia

EBAC is an online education platform looking to bridge the gap between academic learning and real-world job requirements. Their goal is to equip students with the practical skills and knowledge required for in-demand careers.

Analize

Analize helps companies manage their accounting and financial processes by automating repetitive tasks including generating financial statements, consolidating data, and preparing explanatory notes. 

It sees itself as a post-spreadsheet platform designed specifically for financial data, handling data integration, conversions, and analysis that spreadsheets can struggle with. This startup can also connect to a company’s existing ERP systems and consolidate data from multiple databases, providing a centralized view of their finances.

DIMITRA INC.

This agtech startup helps small-scale farmers to improve their farming operations through four apps: Connected Farmer, Connected Coffee, Livestock Guru, and Deforestation. Connected Farmer is a cloud-based platform that gives farmers tools to track their farming activities, and receive detailed reports and recommendations to improve their profitability and sustainability. Connected Coffee, meanwhile, helps coffee farmers, cooperatives, and traders manage their entire coffee supply chain from cultivation to distribution.

Livestock Guru uses DNA testing to help farmers track animal parentage and breed higher quality, healthier livestock. Finally, Deforestation uses satellite imagery and machine learning to certify a farm’s compliance with new EU regulations banning the import of agricultural products linked to deforestation.

Solar Bot

Solar Bot has developed an innovative solution for cleaning solar panels. Traditional solar panel cleaning typically involves using water trucks and manual labour, which can be time-consuming and costly. Solar Bot has created an autonomous, water-free robot that can do this job efficiently.

The startup says that this autonomous cleaning method can recover up to 35 percent of solar panels’ energy generation capacity lost due to dirt buildup, and do so faster than humans: The robot can clean 1 megawatt of solar panels in just 2.5 hours, which is much quicker than manual cleaning.
