We are now officially the sendance GmbH, a registered company based in Linz. Additionally, we found a new home in the Open Innovation Center on the JKU Campus. And we are about to hire our first two employees, Leon Kainz and Daniel Handstanger-Deimling, both skilled engineers helping us to get the first prototypes running.
This will give us a solid foundation to create great sensor solutions. Next big step will be the demonstration of the first sendance-grids in July!
sendance has been admitted to the MedTech branch of the Upper Austrian High-Tech incubator programme tech2b ScaleUp. This will give us a perfect framework to get our business going for the coming 1.5 years. We are looking forward to the great cooperation and being part of the wonderful start-up ecosystem of Linz!
sendance has been awarded the Edison innovation prize in GOLD! This means that a high-class Jury was choosing sendance as the most promising technology start-up idea in Upper Austria. We were pleasantly surprised by this as the competition was really hard and also the other finalists would have deserved any prize! Thanks to all persons involved for this wonderful opportunity…

Over the last weeks, we had some very promising online-meetings with representatives of the building and packaging industry. Now, the business plan version 1 is almost finished and detailled business cases are emerging. There are even the first contacts to potential early-stage strategic investors. All in all, things are going smoothly and we are on our way!
We are getting prepared for the next steps:
- pitching for the tech2b scaleUp program
- founding the company by March 2021
- engaging the first development projects with company partners
- finding solutions for our future customers
- and of course having a lot of fun…
