Bots will rule the world – the Tieto Data Incubator programme in full speed!

Head of Data-Driven Businesses, Tieto

Last night, we had a pleasure to kick off the Tieto Data Incubator with pitching competition with an amazing group of people from the international startup scene. The pitches were very well prepared, atmosphere cozy and bubbly, and I hope the whole audience felt energized after the evening. At least I did!

Winning team Fibo: Teppo Hudson and Tiago Sampaio

Few weeks back, we called for innovators, teams and startups to join forces in creating the data-driven future business. Yesterday evening, there were five teams pitching on the best idea to get access on our accelerator program.

The quality of the pitches blew us away.  The ideas included, for example, disrupting the way companies innovate, second wave of smart watches, human-like video understanding capabilities for media industry and designing better services through intelligent text analysis.

The winning team was Fibo, with extremely cool idea on how to connect bots to make them smarter. I think their approach was unique and there is definitely potential in taking companies’ data processes into a new level – especially on consumer business side. We will continue working with Fibo within our accelerator – excited to see how the journey continues!

We are on a mission to create mutual success through ever innovative ideas that we can create together with our startup partners. Through cooperation, we also offer access to our wide and established customer base, Tieto’s tools and technology platforms, and also provide coaching, sparring and co-funding for the promising ideas.

My warmest thanks to all the pitching teams including Teqmine, Bryom, Valossa, Feelingstream and Fibo, our partner Arctic Startup and our team who made it happen!

We are participating in Slush 2016 with the aim to boost innovation and growth together with the vibrant startup ecosystem. 

Our aim is to meet the best talent in the market and also grow out the ecosystem of start-ups for our mutual benefit. Our booth is situated in the Northern entrance, near the pitching stage – see you there!
