31 October 2014

qLegal, Queen Mary University of London's free legal advice service for tech start-up companies and entrepreneurs, attended the Cambridge Wireless and SETsquared Discovering Start-Ups Competition (DS14) on 22 October 2014. Start-ups captivated the world-class panel of judges, which included John Cummins, Industry Fellow, Queen Mary University of London, with their disruptive technologies and innovations. The winners of the DS14 Competition were:

  • Dr Gerard Vidal of Enigmedia: Real-time, tailor-made data encryption solutions that claim to be 90 percent more efficient than existing technologies.
  • Kevin A Auton of Aseptika (Activ8rlives): An integrated suite of self-monitoring and self-management healthcare devices and services focused on respiratory diseases.

  • Gerlinde Gniewosz of KO-SU: A mobile learning platform for schools and teachers to create and deliver interactive mobile learning activities for students, parents and wider community.

John Cummins, Judge at DS14 said “the sophistication of the start-ups that applied for DS14 was extremely high and made the judging process difficult. There are some very exciting startups in the pipeline, watch this space!”
