Women startup challenge win

Congratulations to Alexandra Grigore from Simprints who has won the Women Startup Challenge Europe, beating almost 200 other applicants. Alexandra pitched their ventures to a panel of judges for a €50,000 cash grant and $210,000 in IBM cloud services on May 3, 2017, at City Hall in London. 

Simprints has developed an inexpensive biometric scanner, mobile app, and cloud platform that could become the first identity provider for the 1.5 billion people who do not have formal IDs. By using people’s fingerprints to accurately link them to records, Simprints aims to create a world where lack of identity is never the reason why anyone is denied the services, care, and rights they deserve.

We are continuing to celebrate a decade of community with our ‘Focus on a Founder’ series. This week we spoke to Alexandra Grigore of Simprints who joined ideaSpace back in 2014.
