THE OPEN MIC COMPETITION

Kilian Eckle from RoofUz presented their sustainable, Lego-like solution addressing housing scarcity. Melissa Sequeira from Ubuntu Tribe spoke about their mission to democratize wealth through digital assets. Elle Langer from Pimento Formate shared their innovative approach to the future of education through AR technology and the power of storytelling.

Rather than casting a deciding vote, we chose to celebrate both RoofUz and GoLexic as winners. Their innovative solutions and persuasive pitches distinguished them, and we’re eager to see how these promising startups will shape the future.

GoLexic, makes it easy for you to help with dyslexia and other reading difficulties…
Samantha Merlivat is the Founder & CEO of GoLexic.
GoLexic was created because too many children still have to go through life without appropriate means to address their difficulties with reading and writing. And this bears consequences on their academic achievements, career prospects and perhaps most importantly, on their self-esteem and emotional well-being.
There is simply aren’t enough therapists, tutors and specialists to provide interventions quickly enough for children with learning differences. Intervention costly, and families who can’t afford private care have to wait months on waiting list for accessible support.
The purpose of GoLexic is to help families with support that is immediately available and affordable, without compromising on the quality and effectiveness of the intervention.
Using a training method conceived to address the learning needs of children with reading difficulties and dyslexia, we have built a digital program that helps them re-learn to read and write fluently.
