Pontus Walan - BOST #1
Describe the idea:
Our vision is to prevent counterfeiting within the pharmaceutical market as well as prevent tampering with doping samples in sports. We aim to do this by developing a secure container which can be proven genuine and unopened through a built-in “fingerprint”. This fingerprint can be verified through a certificate stored on a blockchain platform. Should the packaging be opened, the fingerprint is destroyed. Any product with an invalid fingerprint is therefore not genuine or opened.
Who are you? Previous education/jobs/ experiences etc.
We are two students who are studying engineering physics in Lund. Jonas has previously worked as a student worker for VentureLab and as a programmer for IBM for over two years respectively. In addition to this, he has been a blockchain enthusiast for more than a year. Pontus is very socially outgoing and has a vast network in the startup and pharmaceutical industry through family and friends.
What will you do during these three months? How will you spend the time?
We expect to spend the largest portion of our time reaching out to potential customers and develop our product based on their feedback as well as researching the markets we are targeting. We may develop several slightly different solutions to fit the specific use case for a certain customer. Furthermore we will be testing the properties and robustness of our solution in the sense of production cost, security, temperature resistance and so forth.
What do you expect to achieve during Leapfrogs?
Our goal is to establish a business network within the different markets we are reaching out to and create a prototype of our product that is suited to the market needs. This prototype will consist of the container as well as the software analyzing the container “fingerprints”. Building on this foundation, we aim to expand our team and start the development of a minimum viable product this autumn.
