STARTUP3 Winner – Terroir from Space


Terroir from Space started its journey at the end of 2019. At the beginning of 2020, it was selected from a European accelerator, receiving first equity-free funding. Ever since, it started to develop its service in close interaction with potential customers, growing also its network made of tech-experts and startups. Currently, Alessandro Saetta, the founder, is the sole member of this project: he is an Italian Aerospace Engineer, soon to graduate as MSc Space Engineer from Politecnico di Milano. He has a solid background in Space technologies and downstream applications, with a passion for high-quality wine. Coupling his academic background with this passion, he decided to develop a service in support of modern viticulture, more and more affected by climate change, exploiting EO data and AI. Soon a new member will join the team, supporting the current development of the solution.


Terroir from Space offers a service to detect unexploited planting sites eligible to host vineyards. By exploiting EO data, several parameters associated with the soil and the climate are obtained for different locations. By ingesting this information within our properly trained AI algorithm, we can detect and classify new planting sites, with long-term resilience to climate change. Thus wine growers will safely invest acquiring new land, producing high-quality grapes in good quantity across the years. Moreover, we offer a monitoring service of the status of existing vineyards, providing advice on the best agronomic practices to be implemented.

STARTUP3 Winner – Sensoria Analytics


Sensoria Analytics develops innovative, digital solutions that analyses bio-signals by exploiting advancements in the fields of optics, electronics, MEMS systems and artificial intelligence. Its primary focus is on the prevention and detection of cardiovascular, respiratory risks.
The company is founded by Dr Slah ARIDHI, 20+ years of expertise in international R&D in Wireless Telecom and Biosignals. Systems engineering, Theory and applications of signal processing, Project/ Program coordination and Technology strategy.
The business development is led by Olivier Brie, 15+ years experience in operating companies from early stages to commercial. Co-founded 2 start-ups and led them through the various stages of development.
Slim Jemai is responsible of the financial engineering handling the fundraising and other aspects for project calls.
Sensoria is collaborating with the Centre Hospitalier Universitaire of NICE and the Fondamental foundation for the clinical trials.


CardioSensys is an application coupled with an oximeter, that uses the latest developments in artificial intelligence and biosignal processing.
This precise risk assessment yields an analysis of 7 key vital signs in only 2 minutes and allows the immediate evaluation of cardiovascular and respiratory risk.

CardioSensys is a solution that monitors internal heart markers, to identify heart problems before they become serious and cause non-reversible damage or death. This solution is small and portable allowing users to be monitored anywhere, anytime. The product is envisaged to be used initially by medical professionals wishing to obtain more cardiac information for their patients. It may also be used by patients whose doctors wish them to be monitored more closely outside the medical environment, where the information gathered may be uploaded to the doctor or cardiologist for deeper analysis. This remote and accurate monitoring would reduce the number of doctor visits for easily obtainable measurements, and cardiologist visits for in-depth follow-up measurements. Remote or rural communities would particularly benefit. It is envisaged that this would generate valuable information for the doctors and cardiologists allowing decisions to be more informed.

CEO @ Sensoria Analytics
Sensoria analytics is an almost 3 years old company operating in the eHealth field. We already went through all the usual steps for startups (support from the local system, incubation, patents, Vivatech, CES2020, etc ....). Now, after finalizing the prototype and starting the product packaging, we are looking forward to work with European experts for validation of our commercial strategy in France and in Europe. We hope, by the same token, get into contact with a major eHealth player (big pharma, medical industrial, etc...) in order to initiate potential collaboration that could boost the acceptability of our current product (CardioSensys) and move forward with our roadmap.

STARTUP3 Winner – RTsafe


RTsafe was founded in 2014 by three members of academia with extensive research in Radiotherapy Dosimetry, Magnetic Resonance Imaging, and Medical Device Technology. RTsafe has introduced Individualized Care to Radiation Oncology. It designs and manufactures the first Internationally patented / FDA-cleared, patient-specific, anatomically-exact models of human head and brain tissue. These are offered to Radiotherapy clinics for simulating radiation therapy for each patient ahead of actual treatment in a totally risk-free environment, thus maximizing cancer patient safety and treatment effectiveness.
RTsafe’s team to date comprises 21 members incorporating strong business skills, scientific knowledge, and technological expertise.


Brain metastases are a serious condition that affects around 4M people annually. Stereotactic radiosurgery (SRS), an ideally highly accurate type of Radiotherapy, is prescribed as a treatment of choice in the vast majority of cases in developed markets. Due to this, SRS is expected to grow by 150% over the next decade. However, inaccuracies and medical errors have been found to occur regularly, leading to either sub-optimal treatments, side-effects or in extreme cases mortality. There has been no way to practically ensure the accuracy of the treatment for each individual patient.
PseudoPatient being an exact anatomical replica of the patient’s head (bone and soft tissue), offers a complete 3D means of treatment validation prior to application to the real patient. We offer clinics and patients the unique solution to maximize certainty and safety regarding SRS treatment outcomes.

STARTUP3 Winner – Revalue It Ltd.


Revalue It offers 3 services to our beachhead market; olive producers. 1) We offer a full traceability system based on the IBM Food Trust blockchain database that tracks the product from the farm to a retail store. 2) Independent Certification (Extra Virgin, Pollutants, Health Claim (polyphenol content), Environmental. 3) Consulting to transition farms toward regenerative agroecology practices. Our CEO Nicolas Netien has been working with Regenerative Agriculture for over 15 years, and his olive oil has received ‘The World’s Healthiest Olive Oil’ record, annually for the past 5 years. We also have a blockchain expert and engineer/systems design.


Carbon Sequestration is the key to reducing the impact of climate change. The biggest anthropological driver to the carbon cycle in agriculture. Modern agriculture releases a large amount of carbon into the atmosphere, while agroecology significantly reverses this trend. Carbon offsets are issued to lands to be traded and bought by atmospheric polluting corporations/sectors. However, these are based on presumptions and are inaccurate.
We aim to develop the technology that will accurately provide data-based scientifically validated carbon sequestration results, and be able to certify/issue carbon offsets.

COO @ Revalue It.
As with any venture, what is more important than funding is the right education, exposure, and connections to like-minded people/teams/companies., which I believe STARTUP3 brings. The 3 phase approach is very interesting and important for us at this phase in our company's development, and it will take the dedication for a serious team to keep going; a team like ours. Our approach to development is quite novel, and I feel that the STARTUP3 is also a novel approach, and so, very much looking forward to it.

STARTUP3 Winner – Oscillum


Oscillum is a biotechnology company from Spain whose activity focuses on the development of sensors for the agri-food industry. Oscillum is formed by 3 founders with experience in different sectors, and we aim to make the food value chain more sustainable using biotechnology and nanotechnology. The major problem we face nowadays is food wasting. It is estimated that the third part of the total food production is wasted worldwide and 50% of this waste occurs at a household level, this is due to the lack of information that the consumers have about their food.


We are developing SmartLabel a tag capable of alerting consumers whether their food is edible or not by a simple colour change. It is a technology that needs to be in contact with the food and it detects different metabolites generated by the decomposition of food and bacteria metabolism. Our label works both into the packaging and once it has been opened as long as it remains in contact with the product, and works for fresh meat and fish. We are more effective than our competition because we use a direct measurement of the metabolites of food, something that the competition is not doing yet.
