December 12, 2017News, Startups, WeAreIdeon

STARTUP NEWS We continue our series of startup companies who are working at Ideon Innovation. The purpose of this series is to introduce the startups to the other companies at Ideon to see if there is a possibility of working together and doing business with each other. Kind of an electronic networking.

Company name: IAMRUNBOX

Who are you?

We are young and ambitious team united by a common passion for travelling and sports. Kirill Noskov, the Founder and the CEO, is a passioned commuter himself that enjoys to go to work with his bike or just running. The other memebers of the team are Lina Westin (Head of Product & Design), Jennie Sjöblom (Head of Communication) and Irina Mavrusina (CFO).

IAMRUNBOX Kirill Noskov
Kirill Noskov

Can you tell us a bit about your product?

Many people who run or bike to the office or who go on a short business trip need to get their office clothes with them crease-free. We found it almost impossible to pack business attire into current backpacks without getting shirts wrinkled and trousers creased. After performing market research we realized that we were not alone. To solve this problem, we have developed IAMRUNBOX.

The beauty of IAMRUNBOX is that all products are designed, developed and tested by run commuters, for run commuters and active travelers. Inspired by the smooth clean lines of Scandinavian design and made from revolutionary materials that look as good as they perform, the products within this range allow you to incorporate sports and fitness into your daily schedule, without compromising on business time, family time, or you time.
Our product range consists of backpacks, carriers and accessories designed for sports enthusiasts and travel lovers.

What benefits would I get from using your product?

One of the biggest benefits that individuals would get is that our products are the optimal packing solution for active people, those who enjoy sports and travelling. This is due to the fact that you have stored all of your extra clothes or shoes in the same place. Moreover, by using IAMRUNBOX people have a guarantee that their clothes will be crease free and ready to use.

Our backpacks are from premium quality and made from lightweight materials, which also makes them an ergonomic fit that reduces bouncing when running or biking. Our products have clean and minimalistic Scandinavian design which can make them the new “briefcase” for success and our consumers can use them in every situation.

What kind of partners or help do you need from other Ideon companies?

As now we are in our growth stage we would be interested in working with or receiving advices from companies regarding growth hacking. Moreover we would be willing to start different collaborations with various Ideon companies or even cobranding opportunities. All of those would be due to our desire to learn and get more of a know-how of how you should enter and develop in different markets around the world.

What kind of support or help could you possibly offer to other Ideon companies?

We can help companies with sharing our experience in Crowd funding. Moreover, we have a good knowledge and experience from product development as well which we would be more than willing to share with them.

With high tech materials and sensors, byGrafton want to revolutionize figure skating wear

November 30, 2017Startups, WeAreIdeon

STARTUP NEWS We continue our series of  startup companies who are working at Ideon Innovation. The purpose of this series is to introduce the startups to the other companies at Ideon to see if there is a possibility of working together and doing business with each other. Kind of an electronic networking.

Company name: byGrafton

ByGrafton
Carl Michaelsson, Colin Grafton,  Richie Lundberg

Who are you?

We are Richie Lundberg, CEO, Carl Michaelsson, Creative Director, Colin Grafton, Marketing/Social Media Director and Manette Olsson, Head of Design. 

We have two former professional figure skaters in the team and a designer who has been working with figure skaters for more than 20 years. This, in combination with a creative director who knows his way around materials of all sorts, is a great mix to create a new clothing brand.

Can you tell us a bit about your product?

Figure skaters change their clothes very often due to blade-cuts, ripped pants, cold arenas and warm arenas. Being a figure skater you spend most of your time practicing, both on ice and off ice. Our desire to create a revolutionary fusion of high endurance functionality in material and modern world figure skating fashion design is the core inspiration of byGrafton. This is the first serious and high performing collection that will help professional figure skaters to achieve great results both on ice and off ice.

Professional skaters make the same technical element, jump and spin thousands of times before putting it in their routines at competitions around the world. We want to help them be more efficient during their training process and analyze their movements to help them correct mistakes. We are looking into putting high technological sensors in the second collection to collect data, which they can use, to their advantage and speed up the learning process.

What benefits would I get from using your product?

As a figure skater or other athlete, you would benefit from the materials pushing body heat away from the body, keep warm in cold conditions, keep cool in warm conditions and of course look well dressed all the time. The construction of the garments is made to last longer and get you to and from the ice rinks and arenas without compromising your look.

The technical collection will be great for figure skaters but could be adapted to work fine with other sports as well. By wearing the sensors, your coach or you can monitor speed going into different figure skating jumps, rotation speed and coverage of the ice.

What kind of partners or help do you need from other Ideon companies?

We are always looking into finding interesting “high performing materials” that can be used for sportswear and especially winter sports. Companies working with sensors are also of interest to us, combining sportswear with technology. Companies working with film for commercials are also of interest to us at the moment.

What kind of support or help could you possibly offer to other Ideon companies?

We can help with contacts to clothing factories, technical materials and designers. We have a great knowledge in retail and store concepts as well.

Behind the scenes with VentureLab #instatakeover

November 2, 2017News, Startups, WeAreIdeon

Next week, VentureLab will be taking over our Instagram account. So we took the opportunity to talk to Patricia Szolnoki, Communications Manager at VentureLab.

Hi Patricia, can you tell me a bit about VentureLab?

– VentureLab is part of Lund University and we empower students to create the future! Our office is at Ideon Agora where we have between 30-50 companies in our incubator each year. VentureLab is a free service any student at Lund University can use in the form of business advice meetings, workshops and networking events and can even apply to access our incubator. The latter is practically work-space for those entrepreneurial ideas that have a high potential and need more concentrated help, business coaching and the benefit of being in the Ideon-network every day. We have intake to our incubator 4 times a year and companies can stay up to one year.

Who are working at VentureLab? What are your backgrounds?

– We are currently three working full-time at VentureLab in Lund, one at Campus Helsingborg, three junior business advisors from LU Innovation, and we even have an affiliate in Alnarp at SLU. The three of us sitting at Ideon all have backgrounds at studying at Lund University, social sciences, communication and developmental studies with the occasional adventurous courses in geography, religion, linguistics and everything in between. Some of us have been part of startups and some are fascinated by them. Our common interest is to see a new generation of students succeed with their aspirations in creating their own opportunities and bring their amazing ideas to the public. We have all seen what encouragement for highly educated and ambitious students can do: John Henric, Tamam, Lunicore, Animus Home, IV-bracelet, Tendo and Vevios are just a few examples. We are working to support these ideas become reality and help these entrepreneurs start on their journey.

How many companies are with you right now?

– Currently, we have 26 companies sitting in the incubator. They exemplify the great diversity that Lund University stands for with entrepreneurial minds from all backgrounds and study disciplines. Some are starting online services, some are creating the next generation of smart living solutions, some are interested in the consumer market. What all have in common is a great drive and love of coffee!

What will you be showing us next week?

We’ll show you more of what it’s like here at the incubator, but we’ll also show you what’s happening at Lund Innovation Challenge, a three day innovation challenge where students from LTH and EHL will work together in teams to develop data-driven business ideas and prototypes aided by data from Bisnode. Join us!

What need or problem does your product or service solve?

We know that the workload from Big Data and analytics are considered as primary production data and at the same time data footprints are getting larger. This scenario is posing a huge storage challenge that companies more often have to solve with an IT budget, which is always under pressure.

We can solve this issue by delivering an intelligent data management system that is optimized to manage all the data storage workload with a set-up time under 10 minutes.

What type of product do you offer?

We have designed and built an Intelligent Filer which is a storage-optimized server system empowered with an integrated and cloud-connected operating environment which uses A.I. capabilities to optimize  the management process from data protection to sharing and performance tuning.

What benefits do I get from using your product?

A superior efficiency with a very low TCO, especially compared to the traditional data storage solutions. Your IT team and supervisors will use their time in a much better way and your company will benefit from a modern approach to data storage management.

What kind of partners or help do you need from other Ideon companies?

We are developing our new product line and any help with product and content marketing is always appreciated!

What kind of support or help can you offer to other Ideon companies?

We can help with questions regarding computer data from management to archiving and we can also assist in almost every IT related matters and agile work process definition for tech-companies.
