We are thrilled to announce that the 10 finalists of the SEIF Tech for Impact Awards 2022 have been selected!
With over 280 applications across 24 countries, the quality of applications for the hit a record once again! The high quality and diversity of applications came with high competition. This is where SEIF’s impact and business assessment tool came into play, to ensure a standardised and structured approach to the selection process.
Earlier this month, the 20 pre-selected candidates had the chance to present their solution in front of the SEIF Awards Jury, to become one of the 10 finalists competing for the Tech for Impact Awards.
We would like to thank all the applicants for their great work and dedication towards creating a valuable positive impact and we encourage them to continue to work towards these goals!
Who Are The Finalists?
Antefil Composite Tech (CH)
Antefil Composite Tech offers a more cost-efficient and cleaner way to produce lightweight structures for industrial applications. Its patent-pending and award- winning technology allows the production of glass fibres that are individually coated with a meltable, recyclable plastic.
