  • truemetrics
    truemetrics (s2023)Active • 5 employees • Berlin, Germany
    truemetrics helps logistics companies to find their customer's faster. By detecting and mapping entrances, we help GLS, a key logistics company in Europe, save 2-10 minutes on each delivery. The way couriers navigate is broken. “You Have Arrived At Your Destination!” — or so Google Maps thinks. In reality, the way couriers navigate is broken: No parking, hard-to-find entrances, and labyrinth-like apartment and office complexes can turn the last meters of delivery into a time-consuming puzzle. truemetrics provides parking positions and entrance locations to enable faster drop-offs. Our data is generated by analyzing sensor data from drivers' smartphones, allowing truemetrics to identify precise parking and entrance locations, thereby simplifying the last meters of delivery.

  • Sanvivo
    Sanvivo (w2023)Active • 4 employees • Munich, Germany
    Sanvivo builds a multisided platform to enable customers to order medications, get pharmaceutical advice, and book health services at local pharmacies in Europe. Just like Shopify for pharmacies. Sanvivo gives pharmacies software to take, fill and schedule delivery for online orders. We also bring instant demand through integrations with 3rd party consumer delivery companies. Almost all pharmacies in Europe are, by law, local 1-person businesses. And they are not ready for online orders. Regulatory changes require pharmacies to take and fill e-prescriptions (roll-out Jan-23), but many have no way to do this online today. Sanvivo uses technology to give local pharmacies digital superpowers, enabling them to combine fast supply and high-quality consultation with state of the are e-commerce solutions.
