Proud to announce the Win­ners of the Brainnova­tions Pitch Con­test that took place yes­ter­day dur­ing the 2017 Sharp­Brains Vir­tu­al Sum­mit.

But first of all, thank you very much to every one of the 12 Final­ists and the 16 Judges and every­one in the audi­ence — what a fas­ci­nat­ing dis­cus­sion and learn­ing expe­ri­ence for every­one involved!

And now here’s the Win­ner per cat­e­go­ry. Please join us in cel­e­brat­ing their work so far and in wish­ing them all the best for­ward!

Winner — Top Brainnovation to measure Brain Health & Performance

Neu­raMetrix: “Neu­raMetrix mea­sures brain health using a dig­i­tal bio-mark­er based on con­sis­ten­cy of typ­ing cadence. It is pas­sive, inde­pen­dent of lan­guage, cul­ture and edu­ca­tion and does not require tests or spe­cial equip­ment, sen­sors, gross motor skills or physi­cian inter­ac­tion.”

Winner — Top Brainnovation to improve Brain Health & Performance

AUG­MEN­Tx: “AUGMENTx’s aug­ment­ed real­i­ty enabled neu­ro­mod­u­la­to­ry reha­bil­i­ta­tion ther­a­py aims to accel­er­ate neu­ro­log­i­cal recov­ery from stroke and trau­mat­ic limb ampu­ta­tions. The team’s vision is to make the ther­a­py avail­able to all stroke and limb ampu­ta­tion patients around the world at an afford­able cost.”

Winner –Top Brainnovation harnessing Big Data

Sapi­en Labs: “Sapi­en Labs is a non prof­it that seeks to accel­er­ate solu­tions for brain health by build­ing the largest glob­al­ly rep­re­sen­ta­tive open access data­base and research plat­form for human EEG with strin­gent data stan­dards to enable large scale analy­sis of the human brain.”

Winner — Top Brainnovation to boost Workplace Productivity & Resilience

The Touch­point Solu­tion: “What if you could low­er stress by 71% in 30 sec­onds any­time, any­where? Cost-effec­tive, non-inva­sive Touch­Points neu­ro­science wear­ables rep­re­sent next-gen life enhancement…improve focus, per­for­mance, calm, sen­so­ry inte­gra­tion, and onset of sleep with BLAST tech­nol­o­gy and live your best life.”
