Pitch perfect

The launch of Hexagon Manufacturing Intelligence Division’s second Sixth Sense start-up challenge has been announced


The theme this time around is digital reality and visualization for a sustainable future.

Hexagon launched the Sixth Sense open innovation platform in January 2022 to nurture start-ups in the advanced manufacturing space with Hexagon resources. Its first winners were selected in June and are rapidly scaling with Hexagon’s portfolio and impressive customer base.

The second cohort will be selected based on a pitching competition in September, after which the platform will fast-track the companies through an intensive 10-week programme. Up to three start-ups will be selected at the final in December and offered the opportunity to scale their business alongside Hexagon. The winners will also have the unique opportunity to be part of Hexagon’s open platform for smart manufacturing collaboration.
