The next etap of the Central European Startup Awards was held in Warsaw on 24th October, where the winners from the national events were automatically shortlisted for the same category in the regional finale and had to compete against other nations in the same region. In both the national and regional process, the winners were selected by both public voting and jury delegation.
InSimu as the winner of the titles ‘Best Social Impact Startup’ and ‘Best Newcomer’ in the CESAward National Round 2018 got into the Regional Finale where all the national finalists from Austria, Bulgaria, The Czech Republic, Croatia, Poland, Hungary, Romania, Serbia, Slovakia and Slovenia were present and waited impatiently for the Regional Winners 2018 to be announced in all 15 categories of the startup competition.
InSimu has received the prize for ‘Best Newcomer’ - the category in which startups compete with up to 2 years of age that has shown the greatest development over the last year based on growth, innovation and impact with the product/service. Well, InSimu has created a safe virtual environment where medical students and young medical professionals can improve their diagnostic skills on simulated patients without any risk of causing harm to real patients. We have successfully launched the app in the Apple App Store and Google Play Store, reaching 30 000 downloads since January 2018 and also organized the first worldwide diagnostic championship for medical students in partnership with the International Federation of Medical Students’ Associations in July 2018.
This time our Chief Marketing Officer, Andrea Herdon had the honor to take the award at the gala - in Warsaw’s Palace of Culture and Science - expressing her gratitude for all who have voted for InSimu by public voting and the jury making it possible to have our company awarded as the best newcomer in the startup ecosystem in 2018. The winners of the Regional Finale were selected out of 3 500 nominees and some 40 000 public votes have been given through the selection process.
Hope to be at the Global Grand Finale in 2019 as well!
A big THANK YOU to all of you having faith in us!
