Data Science Start-up Night

3 March 2021

On March 3rd, the first Data Science Start-Up Night took place! During this event, seven start-ups pitches their ideas to 75 ‘investors’. Each student was provided with a sum of fictional money with which they could ‘invest’ in any start-up they’d like. The start-up that managed to raise the most money at the end of the night was announced the winner!

We are very happy to congratulate Peppermint with winning the Start-up Night! We will see them again as speaker at the DEX Talkshow in October!

Lalaland uses deep learning techniques to generate artificial full-body fashion models for e-commerce brands enabling them to show their collections on models that actually look like customers. By using Lalaland brands can instantly upload their collections, select models from a diverse population of generated individuals and show their collections in multiple sizes, skin tones, and ages and from several angles. In turn, brands that utilize Lalaland see a 15% increase of revenue and at least 10% reduction in returns rates.

Allard de Jong
Co-Founder Deskify

Allard de Jong

The future of the office is visible. We are going to work more from home and the office is more and more becoming a place to meet and a place where knowledge is shared amongst colleagues. As a result, organizations will have to deal with an increase in unoccupied workplaces, which is a waste of valuable resources. Organizations will therefore seek to treat their workspaces in a more flexible and
efficient way. In our future, organizations use their workplaces when they need to, but let their workplaces when they are unoccupied. Deskify facilitates in this future, by being the Airbnb for workplaces.
