CHF 200’000 for Mirrakoi and Swiss Motion Technologies
The FIT Jury granted two new projects a CHF 100’000 FIT Tech seed loan each. The money will help the two startups accelerate their commercialization.
Mirrakoi : digital product design, faster
Founded in 2018, Mirrakoi is an EPFL spin-off based at EPFL Innovation Park. The company provides a novel CAD-software solution to create and design 3D digital products in a faster and more intuitive way than the existing technology.
The user base of Mirrakoi consists in product-, industrial designers, engineers and architects. The solution allows them to learn, use and create 3D objects intuitively, faster and with higher precision than with existing products, while reducing design iterations and accelerating speed to-market.
Mirrakoi has just launched its first product to the market early 2019. The funds of the FIT will enable the young company to hire more people and gain rapid traction.

Swiss Motion Technologies : tailored orthopedic devices through novel 3D printing technologies
The spin-off from the HEIG-VD Yverdon Swiss Motion Technologies is shaking the prosthetics market with custom liners developed through 3D printing technologies. Thanks to an easy three-step process, the prosthetist can easily scan the limb, choose the design and the tailored liner will be printed in less than 3 hours. Swiss Motion Technologies already equipped their first patient with one of their custom liner and have a letter of intent from more than 9 major clients in Switzerland and abroad.
The FIT Tech seed loan will enable Swiss Motion Technologies to commercialize their liners in Switzerland, with the objective to work with 50 prosthetists by the end of 2019 and start their international expansion to France, Belgium and Germany.
