“The jury was evaluating each startup from different angles, like team, market, product, traction, and of course, the pitch itself. We saw a lot of very strong companies here, but Anatomy Next had a magic formula of all of those things. The jury was impressed with the finalists of such diversity in terms of both their homebase location and represented industries,” said Egita Polanska, Head of the Jury, Chairperson of the Latvian Startup Association and representative of Startup Wise Guys.
