09/22/2016  |  CODE_n Alumni, CODE_n Winners, CODE_n16 Startup CONTEST

Can you believe it’s already day three of our new.New Festival? We hardly can! Two exciting days filled with a great conference program and a lucky CODE_n16 winner lie behind us – but of course our last day has a lot to offer as well! We’ll tell you what today’s highlights are and what you definitely shouldn’t miss!

Yesterday was the big day! At the CODE_n Award Show we finally got to know which promising startup won our CODE_n CONTEST this year. Drum rolls for… Xarion! The Vienna-based company left 385 competitors from 40 countries behind and secured the grand prize of €30,000! With their business model, they left a great impression on our jury! Xarion sets new yardsticks within the sectors of ultrasound imaging, process monitoring and testing technology. Their ground-breaking laser microphone combines a lot of benefits: insensitive to wind and vibration and highly precise in extremely high frequency ranges.

CODE_n initiator Ulrich Dietz announced Xarion as the winner of CODE_n16!
