New Economy Heroes is an event where innovative startups can meet up with large companies, investors and entrepreneurs to discuss business and exchange their experiences. After all, it’s pointless to stay isolated; it’s better to learn from other people’s mistakes than to make the same ones. To make it even more worthwhile, it awards the most forward-looking startups. This year’s contest was for IoT startups.
“New Economy Heroes contest showed how innovative and creative Polish entrepreneurs can be. Making the final decision who should win really wasn’t easy,” says Beata Jarosz from CodersTrust Poland. „I’m very happy we can help them in their further development. I believe that sessions with Maciej Balsewicz and Morten Lund will help them spread their wings.”
Sky Tronic, the startup who won this year’s edition, specialises in designing and producing drones using their own controller systems for UAV steering and stabilising.

They’re perfect for the life rescue missions, monitoring of snow avalanches or surveillance just to name a few. They’ve got some cool projects for the future and they’re going to develop novel unmanned helicopters.
“IoT is a concept, which opens completely new possibilities to us, especially in the industry. We’re just starting the journey (with IoT), the ideas how to use the data which has suddenly become available are just being created.
