WE SHOULD BECOME THE BEST DIGITAL STARTUP IN NRW BECAUSE
We do high-tech made-in NRW (a spin-off of the DLR eV) and we are aiming to go global with a stable base in NRW. We received funding from business angels in NRW, the NRW.BANK and the NRW-MULNV (NRW Ministry for Environment, Agriculture, Conservation and Consumer Protection). We were awarded highly prestigious awards in NRW: Gründerpreis 2020 der Wirtschaftsjunioren Köln, 2nd place at the KUER.NRW business plan competition, and ABE_Award 2020. We did some of our most successful projects with NRW customers (e.g. Stadt Köln, Covestro, Uni Münster) and we fight for more social and environmental responsibility in the economy. Our motto is “Success is more than a pile of money.”
YOUR STARTUP IN 3 WORDS
Empowering Better Buildings
Founded in 2019
Team Count 16
- Spin-off of the German Aerospace Center (DLR eV)
- 3 founders:
- Bernhard: experienced entrepreneur, professor at RWTH Aachen, director of DLR Institute of Solar Research
Typically, little is known about existing buildings: Floor plans are not up-to-date, 3D building models do not exist, thermal bridges are only discovered by accident, water pipe bursts are only detected once the water already trickles from the ceiling (…). Today, this problem is solved by analyzing buildings manually.
Lumoview demonstrates for the first time that it is possible to collect the data that are needed for the 3D modeling of a building within 2 seconds per room by anyone. Thus, the solution of Lumoview is way easier and much faster than those of its competitors.
- Further automating the post-processing software
- Preparing CE certification of hardware
- Preparing our next fundraising round with planned closing at the end of 2021
