SPIE 2023 Startup Challenge Open for Applications
Participants with an optics or photonics technology or application as the basis for a viable business are encouraged to apply
Light-based technologies enable developments in a proliferating number of areas, from healthcare and high-speed communications to quantum computing, AR/VR/MR, and self-driving vehicles. The annual SPIE Startup Challenge - now celebrating its 13th year - provides a distinctive and vibrant platform for optics and photonics startups that are creating innovative products, applications, and technologies. Startup Challenge winners that have gone on to wider commercial success include Cellino Biotech, Double Helix Optics, PhotoniCare, C. Light Technologies, Circle Optics, and In A Blink.
The industry-judged competition will hear from teams pitching new products in photonics-enabled healthcare and deep tech, culling the original applicants down to 10 finalists. Competition judges include venture capitalists and business-development experts from the photonics industry who will vet applicants for their business case, financial case, and competitive advantages. Teams applying for the Startup Challenge will get feedback on their business and pitch from business-development experts and investors.
The SPIE Startup Challenge application deadline is 20 October. Learn more about the competition, and apply here. https://spie.smapply.io/prog/2023_spie_startup_challenge/
