Participant Testimonials


Many thanks to the Innovation World Cup Award, which makes it very easy for us to get real publicity and credibility. The Award resulted into 300+ customer leads for us and new partnership contacts.

Pekka Tolvanen, CEO, Myontec

The award did have a massive impact concerning public awareness of Moticon – and in the same line the awareness and interest of potential customers and business partners. The impact especially from the US was huge. Lots of inquiries and new business ideas where we could possibly apply our products for in the future. Also some manufacturer showed up in order to check potential partnerships in different technology fields (wireless, computing).

Maximilian Müller, CEO, Moticon

Words can’t express how humbled and grateful we feel – regardless of the awards we’ve won, we feel this is the best validation we’ve received yet. We highly recommend the participation in the Innovation World Cup.

Sharon Samjitsingh, Co-Founder, Health Care Originals

WT was instrumental for our organization. It has helped us contact and network with some of the most prominent businesses around the world and has helped us understand the market so much better. Both, Google and Samsung, have already approached us for further collaboration. In terms of investment, we have been able to raise almost a mio. dollars since our entry to the WT Conference. I would definitively want to be back there with a new idea next year.

Being a winner of the Wearable Technologies Innovation World Cup has certainly made a tremendous impact on ViviTouch. It has reinforced with our partners that our technology is an innovative solution for audio and touch feedback markets. Interestingly, even though we won for our 4D Sound category, this has generated a lot of interest for our HD Feel Technology given the WT brand.

We gained extra credibility. We received attention from industrial players as Sony, Samsung, Bosch, Allianz, media and other event organizers – one of the reasons to participate again in the WT Innovation World Cup would be to introduce new products to the market. We got superb support during the event and we followed up with a meeting with Alllianz the day after the event.
