The SPIE Startup Challenge is an entrepreneurial pitch competition for new businesses that utilize optics and photonics to create innovative products, applications, and technologies. This year’s finalists include healthcare and deep tech innovations in medical diagnostics, medical imaging, food safety, and display technology.

The SPIE Startup Challenge is supported by Founding Partner Jenoptik; Lead Sponsors Edmund Optics, Hamamatsu, MKS Instruments, and Thorlabs; and Supporting Sponsors NextCorps Luminate and Photonics Media. Judges include venture capitalists and business-development experts who vet the applicants for their business case, financial case, and competitive advantages.

Optics and photonics – or light-based technologies – enable developments in a proliferating number of areas, from healthcare and high-speed communications to quantum computing, AR/VR/MR, and self-driving vehicles. Startup Challenge winners that have gone on to wider commercial success include Cellino Biotech, Circle Optics, C. Light Technologies, Double Helix Optics, In A Blink, and PhotoniCare.

The ten 2023 SPIE Startup Challenge finalists are:

  • Actoprobe, with a non-spectroscopy probe for advanced manufacturing and life science
  • FlulDect GmbH, with sensor technology combining the effects of whispering-gallery-modes (WGM) with functionalized fluorescent beads to detect pathogens in applications including food safety
  • KostaCLOUD Inc., with a cloud-based optical design and simulation tool enabling real-time, optical-mechanical design collaboration, dramatically improving design-optimization times
  • Lighthanded Enterprises, with LasEar Laser Otoscope, to improve diagnosis of common causes of childhood-hearing loss
  • PatenSee, with an innovative combination of machine learning and imaging technology for dialysis patients
  • PhoMedics Limited, with a histological imaging microscope offering real-time status during cancer surgery
  • Phosio, with nanoimprintable, high-refractive index transparent coatings, a critical tool for expanding optical designs in AR
  • PhosPrint P.C., with a novel technology that repairs in vivo human tissue during surgery
  • QART Medical, utilizing biophotonics and data for 3D analysis of sperm cells during IVF
