Taking first place in a festival of firsts, Poikos took the gold with a new patent-pending 3D body imaging technology expected to revolutionize the health, e-commerce, and fitness industries. The festival in Vienna featured major innovators like Helioz and BeamApp.
The Pioneers Festival kicked off in Vienna this week and by the looks of the 2,300 attendees at the amazing Hofburg Imperial palace, the conference is shaping up to be a stand-out event in Europe, not least because it is enormously upbeat and positive. Something we need more of in Europe. With a palace as a setting, art installations and a Croatian-born electric super car in the foyer (the Rimac), this is quite a ‘European’ event.

Helioz won second place and BeamApp won third place.
