Equestrian sports and living cells imaging get support from the FIT
Two startups from Canton of Vaud, Alogo and Viventis Microscopy, each obtained a seed loan from the Foundation for Technological Innovation (FIT). This type of loan without interest is granted to promising young companies from Western Switzerland that are in phase of prototyping and commercial development. The objective of the FIT is to support the development of innovative technological projects and startups tied to a university or an institute of higher education in Western Switzerland.
Alogo Analysis, the digital revolution for equestrian sports
Created by an international professional horse rider, David Deillon, the startup based in Apples is modernizing equestrian disciplines. Alogo Analysis developed a range of innovative products giving detailed statistics on show-jumping during competitions and trainings. Two products have been designed, Alogo SHOW and Alogo MOVE.
Alogo SHOW provides live augmented content (i.e. intermediate times, % of mistakes by obstacles, comparison of the horse riders’ performances) in order to enhance the interest and comprehension of the public and fans. This product is already used by one of the most prestigious international equestrian competition (more than 700 international horse contests are organized in the world each year).
Alogo MOVE enables riders to analyze their horse’s movements during trainings or contests thanks to a sensor placed on the horse. This product is currently the only accurate tool available in the world able to track trajectory, length, trail, speed and intensity of the horse’s effort during a race or a training. The seed loan provided by the FIT will help Alogo accelerate its market entry, a goal set for 2018.
