Ten recieve the Venture Cup West Prize

At this year´s Venture Cup West awards the 10 best business ideas in Venture Cup West 08/09 were chosen, receiving SEK 10 000 each.
Among the 10 winners is T-sort, an innovation project in the incubator of GIBBS that is run by the three master students Ina Pieper, Samuel Troilius and Fredrik Weschke. T-Sort is a life science start-up focusing on improving safety and efficiency of bone marrow transplantations.

The start-up is developing a prognostic test which will be used prior to transplantation, to give a quantified prediction of the common complication graft-versus-host-disease. By knowing the risk of the potentially fatal complication in advance, the physician can give preventive care, to ensure the patient's health and that the transplantation is safe.

Another winner was Cereduce, a project at Göteborg International Bioscience Business School, GIBBS. The business idea is based on providing wine makers with a novel and unique yeast which allows for a reduction in the alcohol content of wine.

The other eight finalists were: Valter UF, Klätterskogen, Artificiella konversationella agenter på webben, Waterfuse, Vascuepant, Lantvind, Quick oil change and Adfreight.

In addition to these prizes, Innovation Bronze Venture Cup grants of SEK 5000 each were awarded to the six best contributions from each region outside the Göteborg area and the Food & Health prize to the two best business ideas within food and health.
