Axial3D needs your vote in the Europas Tech Startup Awards 2020

  • Local medtech firm Axial3D has been nominated for the annual Europas Tech Startup Awards, with public votes open until this Saturday.

    The Europas Tech Startup Awards have been celebrating Europe's top startups since 2009, shining a spotlight on the most promising young companies throughout the continent. The awards have a very heavy tech influence, with categories covering everything from agritech and fintech to AI, cyber-security, medtech, and more. There are also specific awards for sustainability, VC funds, and social innovation.

    The awards are currently in an open public voting phase to select a shortlist for each awards category, which will then progress to deep dives and pitches. The winners will be announced at a virtual award ceremony on June 25th following a week of virtual Pathfounder Workshops for startups.

    Public voting ends this Saturday May 17th, and one of Northern Ireland's tech firms needs your votes! Local medtech firm Axial3D has been nominated in the Hottest HealthTech Startup category for its innovative 3D printing service that turns data from medical scans into physical 3D models to help surgeons plan complex medical procedures.

    It's been a great year for Axial3D, with the firm raising £2.4m in funding last June and helping to improve outcomes in children's heart surgeries in England. When the COVID-19 outbreak began, the firm also started organising an effort to print parts for face shields and ventillators to help with shortages.
