Describe the idea!

Hence, with CobbleVision Customers can reduce their costs in computer vision by 95% and reduce their switching and consecutive costs for further implementations by 100%.
Who are you?
Originally from Germany, I spent the last year in Lund, Sweden for my master studies in International Strategic Management. Before that I worked at Deutsche Telekom in Berlin/Wolfsburg and studied business informatics in Leipzig at the College for Telecommunication in Leipzig. I am a patent holder in machine learning infrastructure and winner of business model competitions like Hack4Munich. Furthermore, I am also a founding member of MindLab Malmö, an association dedicated to exploring Brain-Computer-Interfaces.
What will you do during these three months? How will you spend the time?
CobbleVision is at a stage, where first customer fit has been verified and the product needs to be refined for public use. One of the goals of these three months is therefore being able to fulfil the requests of existing customers. Furthermore, the company will be looking to collect funding and grants to launch the product at a free price to allow for traction on the platform to set in.
What do you expect to achieve during Leapfrogs?
During Leapfrogs I expect to collect further proof of the commercial viability of CobbleVision. Furthermore, I expect to raise funding based on this commercial viability to ensure secure operation in the following months after LeapFrogs. Additionally, I expect first customers to start interacting with the company and products. CobbleVision will also be part of several pitch occasions like the final Sony Startup Acceleration Program event, where I want to perform above standard expectations.
