Energy storage from airborne moisture, semi-autonomous driving, monitoring and treatment of air pollution in vehicles, IoT for factories and computer vision for airports - these are the areas in which selected startups are involved in the first cycle of Quantum SPARK, Quantum Hub's POCs program. Quantum Hub is the innovation center of the Livnat-Livnat Group, in collaboration with the Hyundai Group (Korea), the VDL Group (the Netherlands) and the Tadiran Group. The five projects were selected from over 100 who applied for the program, and after a rigorous screening process of the parent team and partners, representatives of leading funds and a selection committee in which 15 projects were presented, from which the finalists were selected. The program will accompany the selected startups for 12 weeks and will involve about 40 experts and mentors from a variety of companies in the industry - from CEOs and VPs of industrial companies to proven and well-known entrepreneurs in the industry. The purpose of the program is to build POCs (Proof of Concept) processes in collaboration between the startups and the commercial partners participating in the program. Quantum SPARK offers several avenues that will help the growth of participating companies. First, for the purpose of the program, a special model was built that fits a 'personal suit' for each startup, with the understanding that each startup is different in nature and has different needs. In addition, the startups will have direct access to more than 200 companies in Israel and around the world, which will allow them to examine the size of the potential market and adjust their value proposition to the market.
