Polish Oil and Gas Company (PGNiG) and the Polish Enterprise Development Agency (PARP) selected Sensfix as a Winner of the Poland Prize and is exploring an opportunity for a proof of concept with PGNiG.

Sensfix was chosen from 462 foreign teams to join the final 11 startups offering innovative solutions for enterprises from the energy sector. Sensfix was selected from a pool of startups from Estonia, Lithuania, Austria, Germany, Denmark, USA and other countries. The chosen teams entered the third round of the Startup Hub program: Poland Prize. This program shows Poland’s dedication as one of most dynamically developing countries in Europe, offering wide access to European Union markets. The country is seeking innovation and sees it as the foundation for its further development strategy.

PGNiG and the Startup Hub Poland Foundation have been cooperating in implementing the Startup Hub: Poland Prize program since February 2019. Startup Hub Poland is responsible for recruiting startups and coordinating the acceleration program. In total, there will be three rounds under the program. Ultimately, by the end of the year, 26 innovative startup teams will be created in Poland, which will work on projects in energy, modern information, and communication technologies (ICT). PGNiG is the strategic partner of the project, looking for interesting, innovative solutions to meet the technological challenges of companies from the PGNiG Group. After establishing their companies in Poland all selected foreign projects will receive financial support of up to EUR 50,000 (non-equity grant) from the funds of the Polish Agency for Enterprise Development (PARP).

Startup Hub Poland is one of six organizations selected by PARP that can distribute a grant worth PLN 5 million. As part of the Poland Prize, the Foundation attracts teams of scientists and entrepreneurs testing energy and ICT solutions that have not yet been commercialized, as well as existing startups that are already implementing innovative projects abroad, but would also like to develop them in Poland.
