Pitch Day 2020 (or week, rather) is underway! Seven promising startups from Chalmers Ventures’ Accelerator will showcase their companies digitally this year for a chance to win 50,000 SEK. The winner is decided based on public voting, so go in and take a look at these great companies and vote (we hope you choose Lucero)!
Lucero is pleased to announce that it has been included in this year’s AI Landscape project. The project is led by AI Sweden, Ignite Sweden, and the Research Institutes of Sweden (RISE) with the purpose of finding and supporting the best AI startups in Sweden that have the potential to accelerate and contribute to the use of AI applications in the country.
Lucero has been participating in the EIT Health Validation during the past eight weeks. The program is in collaboration with Yes!Delft and is tailored for early-stage European MedTech and Biotech startups who are validating their ideas, value propositions, market potential, and business model.

“It’s an honor to be competing in the most prestigious startup competition in Sweden. There are plenty of great startups this year and we’re very happy to be among them.” – Christopher Jacklin, co-founder of Lucero.

Lucero will compete in the MedTech vertical of the Fifty Founders Battle pitch competition alongside nine other promising Baltic and Nordic startups. Other competition verticals include Green Tech, FinTech, B2B, and B2C. Founders take the stage on February 20th.
