Our project, called Tőkeportál, aims to establish crowdfunding in Hungary and has participated in FinTechShow, the first fintech themed event in Hungary. At the show, 15 local fintech projects were introduced that might raise Budapest to be the fintech capital city of the region within a few years. Tőkeportál, the first crowdfunding platform for shares and a project with capital market improvement goals, has won the special award of the Hungarian Investment Promotion Agency (HIPA), which was the only available award besides the grand prize of Fintechlab. Please read more about the event in our interview with Gergő Baján, CTO of Tőkeportál.
Dolphio Technologies’ Tőkeportál project finished in the best eight at the Fintech competition announced by MKB Bank. The long-term goal of the competition is the modernization of financial institutions’ present services.
Dolphio Technologies’ project, named Tőkeportál, is based on equity crowdfunding, a new financing model which is growing more and more popular in the West. The concept appealed to the jury too, so the project got among the eight bests, which means that Dolphio Technologies can continue to develop it within the framework of MKB Bank’s incuabation program, funded by venture capital.
The aim of the incubation program is to enable Fintech products that have the potential to replace or complement the tradational services of financial institutions to spread in the Hungarian and international markets.
Tőkeportál aims to establish a public fund portal with the help of MKB Bank. The base portal is already finished and campaign owners can show their projects.
Dolphio Technologies and its computer vision-based developments have contributed significantly to the European innovation and scientific successes for many years. The company’s intelligent camera system, SpotNzoom, is capable of detecting and recording critical events occurring in the monitored area without human intervention combining the advantages of different types of cameras.
The cutting-edge development was rewarded with the BOKIK Innovation Award by the Chamber of Commerce and Industry of Borsod-Abaúj-Zemplén County on 25th May.
This award is also a recognition of the remarkable development team, which is behind the creation of SpotNzoom.
The jury acknowledged the works of Aluinvent Zrt., Bosch and Dolphio Technologies as the bests among the applicants. Besides, Dolphio’s awarded camera system already performs successfully at the Local Government of Budavár.
The technology, called SpotNzoom is one of the most remarkable results of Dolphio’s computer vision-based developments. The system provides a unique solution primarily for surveillance systems installed for security purposes controlling fixed and PTZ cameras.
The main criteria of the award focused on the usefulness of the idea and the contribution to sustainable development. The ceremony was a part of the event series called ’Innováció a fejlődés rugója’, which was launched in 2014.
The award has been resulted mainly by the unique technology behind SpotNzoom, which effectively provides an overview of the monitored area. Thanks to the intelligent algorithms, the system needs much less infrastructure compare to the traditional surveillance systems and does not need any human intervention.
This award and other successes, such as the fact that Dolphio was able to get in the Deloitte Fast 50 CEE Technologies List for four consecutive years, proves that the company is moving in the right direction focusing on excellent team work as a main pillar of success.
This June, Dolphio Technologies’ sign language translator, SignAll has won the LT-Innovate Award in Brussels. The members of the awarding institute (Association of the Language Technology Industry) are composed mainly of companies and research institutes developing language technologies, as they believe that projects engaging in interactive communication are highly important in a multilingual world. The success is primarily the result of the technology that lies behind SignAll, as it not only recognizes signs but also translates them into English. The success series of the Hungarian sign language translator has a long history. It has been selected among the eight best innovations at Singularity University CEE’s Global Impact competition in 2014, established by NASA and Google. SignAll has also met with a warm response at the Pioneers festival in Vienna and at the Slush festival in Helsinki. Before the LT-Innovate Award, SignAll has won the audience award at the CEE Lift off! startup competition at the Smartmobil 2015 conference, which was organized in the Hungarian Várkert Bazár. The technology is able to translate from North-American ASL in real time, which is used in the US alone by more than a half million people.
