Irish Bioprinting company Ourobotics, and its bioprinter for printing limbs for use in medicine, have won the inaugural SVOD Europe startup competition.

The Startup competition was held as part of the inaugural Silicon Valley Open Doors (SVOD) Europe conference, supported by Google and held at its European Headquarters in Dublin.

“The conference was really helpful, not only did we win, but we also received a lot of great advice and introductions. It’s definitely worthwhile for any startup company to attend,” said Jemma Redmond, founder of Ourobotics.

Jemma will now attend and present at the Silicon Valley Open Doors conference in the United States on May 25th this year. Israeli project Recast took second place, while Ukrainian project Wishround came in third in the competition.

Google Director Paddy Flynn said “We strongly believe in supporting the startup community and this event is another great opportunity for the Irish and European startup community to connect with US and local investors, and as a location Ireland is now seen as major tech hub and is very well placed with its US and European connections.”
