KONVOI Helps with AI and Sensors to Prevent the Theft of Truck Cargo
KONVOI Helps with AI and Sensors to Prevent the Theft of Truck CargoEach year cargo is stolen from at least 26.000 trucks each year in Germany, worth 2.2 bn Euros. Heinz Luckardt, Co-Founder KONVOI   Don’t Miss Any Blog Post, Video, or Audio PodcastSubscribe to our newsletter on Substack here: https://startupradio.substack.com/subscribe   … there is organized crime stealing from parked trucks. … We want to be preventive, before the theft happens. Heinz Luckardt, Co-Founder KONVOI  Media PartnershipThis podcast is in media partnership with the Hamburg-based startup blog Hamburg Startups (https://www.hamburg-startups.net/). They keep you up to date on the local startup scene in Hamburg, they organize regular events (in normal non corona times) AND they do have a special section on food startups as well. Even if you are not able to speak German, a visit with an auto translate is worth it, since they also have an extensive directory of local startups on their website.   Our solution will be a combination of hardware and software. Heinz Luckardt, Co-Founder KONVOI  The FounderIn this interview, we talk to Heinz Luckardt (https://www.linkedin.com/in/heinz-luckhardt-a77a351a0/), Co-Founder of Hamburg-based startup KONVOI. He is originally from Frankfurt, but his studies took him to Hamburg University, where he met his co-founder. But Heinz has already traveled the world, he studied in Milano (Italy), he has been a sales intern in India, as well as working with Fraunhofer Institute. At Fraunhofer, he was working on salt-based 3d printing.   The vision is later to go deep into predictive analytics, like generating heatmaps for truck thefts.

Try our partner Bitwala with this affiliate link here http://bit.ly/2w01Zye The StartupThe startup was set up already in times of corona, in October 2020. Theft of truck cargo, literally from the back of a truck, is a big problem for the trucking companies, as well as all companies using this mean of transport. So KONVOI (https://www.konvoi.eu/) provides a combination of hardware and software to prevent these thefts. Right now, they are working on the first step of the solution, but the vision is to go deep in predictive analytics.   We are looking for innovative trucking companies in Germany, to give us feedback. Heinz Luckardt, Co-Founder KONVOI  Venture Capital FundingKONVOI is currently not actively looking for external investors. They are currently on a government grant, funding the company at least until end of 2021.   We are not focusing on one technology. We are working with radar, as well as ultra-sonic sound at the moment.

Quoscient helps to analyze, investigate and respond to cyber-threats
QuoScient helps to analyze, investigate and respond to cyber-threats Attackers are devious… During the current health crisis, they are going after health institutions and hospitals. They don’t basically care that they are doing damage to people who have already health problems. Ioannis Bizimis, Co-Founder QuoScient    The FounderIn this interview, we are talking to Ioannis Bizimis (https://www.linkedin.com/in/ioannis-bizimis-6423527/, https://twitter.com/defense_active), the Co-Founder, CFO, CRO, and  CISO of QuoScient. Ioannis has been an Investment Manager, project lead with Dow Jones, with MarkIt, an employee of Deutsche Bank and other well-regarded companies. He has a lot of experience and with this experience, he started to set up QuoScient.   One of the biggest strategies [of hackers] is to come into your network and stay there and install as many backdoors as they can. They will use them when they need it.

The effort on the other side is thousands, sometimes millions to understand this kind of campaign.

Since the Corona outbreak in Europe, we surpassed 150.000 subscribers. I would like to thank you all and keep you up to date with the current development.  Public life in Germany is now  greatly reduced. In most of Germany’s sixteen states the opening hours of bars and restaurants are severely limited and only selected stores (think groceries, pharmacies, …) remain open during normal hours. This has a great impact on startups in Germany, from changing to remote-only work, to a heavy drag on revenues, to finding emergency funding. We thought we would give you an overview, as a short flash update. We want to provide you with collections of links and reports, that point you where to find information, help and can read more.    German Startup Association's Link Collection“This is a list of *public* coronavirus // Covid-19 communications/measures and resources.

Codario.io makes open source security easyMedia PartnershipThis interview is in media cooperation with Frankfurt Forward (https://www.frankfurtforward.com/news/). Codario is the Startup of the Month March 2020. Congratulations! The FounderWe talk to Johannes “Joe” Noll  (https://www.linkedin.com/in/johannes-noll-10907478/), co-founder and CEO at Codario.io (formerly known as App Guard) (https://codario.io/, https://www.crunchbase.com/organization/codario), a cybersecurity startup from the Rhine-Main Area (Darmstadt). Johannes is a returning interview partner, due to our media partnership. If you want to learn more about him and the startup, see at the end of this post for the interview posted on October 10th 2019, where we talked to him at an event. Johannes got sucked in the startup world by attempting to make a copycat of the app Jodel (https://www.crunchbase.com/organization/jodel). It is an app for sharing anonymously gossip. The name is inspired by the Bavarian jodeln (see video below – Further Readings).   We help software developers to use open source in a secure way.

As a software developer one uses not only own code, but also open-source code (libraries). The startup helps software developers to monitor and update these open source libraries they are using, so known vulnerabilities of old versions cannot be exploited in the new project. They are currently 5 people. Codario has paying customers like the University of Heidelberg (the world's 2nd oldest university) or the European Commission.   Our slogan is “Open source security made easy” Johannes “Joe” Noll of Codario.io during his Startuprad.io interview   Find the video interview from March 12th 2020 here:https://youtu.be/MD4cvuM3usM   If you are not updating your 3rd party code hackers can attack your web application, even if you have your own code secured.

App Guard helps developers to close security loopholes
You are listening to the audio track of a YouTube interview. Find all the interviews at YouTube.com/Startupradio In this video interview, we are talking to Johannes “Joe” Noll (https://www.linkedin.com/in/johannes-noll-10907478), who is co-founder and CEO at Darmstadt based App Guard. App Guard helps developers – to keep pre-programmed elements they are using in their applications – up to date, so no one can exploit known loopholes from those elements. This is important, since already a few hours after the release of new software automated tools will start to hack software, with known weaknesses. You can access the tool Codario here: https://codario.io/. They support docker, composer, NPM, Drupal, yarn, and python. “5 Hours after the release of the software, automated hack start” Currently, App Guard is raising Venture Capital. Reach out to us, to learn more. The video interview was recorded at the booth of Frankfurt Forward at Entrepreneur University in Wiesbaden, Germany. Thank you to SAP Next-Gen for providing us space at their booth for the interviews before this one.

CashLink wants to digitalize Venture Capital
CashLink is a tokenization platform based in Frankfurt. The startup helps other startups to issue securities in the form of security tokes. Their idea comes from their own experience in raising venture capital, they still remember the pain of raising venture capital in an all paper-based environment. They also lower the transaction cost for each VC round, based on their platform. So they decided to take on that minor challenge of digitizing the German venture capital scene. CashLink is currently offering its service for startups in Germany and investors from the European Union, but they are working on extending their service to startups all over the European Union.   In this interview, we talk to Michael Duttlinger (https://www.linkedin.com/in/duttlinger/), CEO and Co-Founder of CASHLINK (https://cashlink.de/). Joe interviewed Michael at the Fintech Hub of Deutsche Börse https://www.venture-network.com/dbvn-de/fintech-hub (here is the view (or parts of it) https://www.instagram.com/p/Bno9mWQBRp0/, which is located in the borough of Bornheim https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bornheim_(Frankfurt_am_Main)  in Frankfurt. During the interview Michael and Joe talk about: GmbH (German Version of an LTD) https://www.investopedia.com/terms/g/gmbh.asp, which is currently the standard legal form for startups in Germany.Stock Options: https://www.investopedia.com/terms/s/stockoption.aspPhantom Shares / Virtual Stock Options:o             https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Phantom_stock  o             https://www.investopedia.com/terms/p/phantomstock.asp Primary Market: https://www.investopedia.com/terms/p/primarymarket.aspJoe talks about the German Commercial Registry: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/German_Trade_Register  The interview was conducted in February 2019 (that’s where the snow references come from). Originally this interview was intended as a video interview, but the autofocus did not work. Quotes: The irony is that investors must go through a long and tiresome process to invest in a startup to get digitization started. Jörn CashLink Interview We want to digitize venture capital. In our legal framework … you can sell your startup shares basically at any time at very low transaction costs, because it is now digital. In the near future we will see more hybrid (financed) startups, wo have tokenized and non-tokenized shares. Our framework is only for professional investors who ware used to invest in startups.  With us you can onboard investors very easily, on the go.
