I have the impression that each of the projects presented in the competition has a future “- publicist Michal Karnowski emphasised (wSieci Weekly) on behalf of the jury. Startup Award winners in 2016 were the authors of the LGM project. “We have a simple innovation. We generate more power from existing facilities. We generate so much because everyone needs it. We can get it by increasing efficiency and pulling limits of the existing generators “- explained Justyna Wysocka-Golec, co-owner of the company LGM.
