800 innovative ideas to help deal with the crisis caused by a pandemic
12 final applications out of almost 800 innovative ideas in the areas of Health, Work, Entrepreneurship, and Society were selected in the competition #AplikacjeJutra (Applications of Tomorrow) organized by PFR. REXS.IO with a blockchain-based data management technology project was selected to the group of the best teams whose technological solutions can help fight the effects of the crisis.
The committee assessed aspects such as response to the challenge in the selected area, innovation of the idea, proposed business model, quality and manner of presenting the prepared presentation, the degree of development of the idea, and the level of experience of the participant or team.
The final projects included, among others, concepts for improving the work of doctors, automating financial analysis in an enterprise, supporting local tourism and companies, and ways to verify the effectiveness of Covid-19 tests.
This program is a an amazing opportunity for our team to showcase blockchain’s potential within the healthcare vertical and contribute to a good cause at the same time. I know that we will be able to provide value to the fight against Covid-19 and limit its negative impact on societies – Krzysztof Radecki, CEO of REXS.IO.
Support for developers of innovative applications
In autumn, our team will take part in workshops with experts that will prepare us to refine ideas and create a professional investor presentation. The final of the #AplikacjeJutraPFR competition will be the official gala in December, during which all finalists will present their solutions. The best 6 teams will receive financial prizes totaling over PLN 1 million for the creation of application prototypes – there are three main prizes in the amount of PLN 250,000 to be won, and three of PLN 100 thousand.
The number of almost 800 applications and their high substantive value exceeded our wildest expectations. The selection of 12 finalists from among them was not easy and required long deliberations of the committee. I am convinced that in December we will have an exciting final gala, during which the finalists will present their solutions to the audience and the jury. Importantly, as many as six winning ideas will receive a chance from PFR to implement them, which means that they may soon facilitate the functioning of many Poles – we will get out of the crisis faster or we will be able to better counteract the subsequent effects of Covid-19 – Eliza Kruczkowska, Director of the Innovation Development Department, PFR
