Startup Europe Awards


MaxWhere is the hungarian winner of the IoT category

Country: Hungary

Category: IoT

Project Aim: The MaxWhere Engine and Ecosystem incorporates several new technologies. Our patent pending Cognitive Navigation (CogiNav) technology allows users to navigate 3D spaces seamlessly, using nothing more than a laptop and a regular mouse.



What is MaxWhere ?

MaxWhere is a platform for the management of all forms of digital content in 3D spaces. In creating MaxWhere, we are motivated by the belief that in much the same way that character-based interfaces (e.g., DOS) were replaced in the late 1990s by windowing systems (e.g., Windows), so the widespread use of 2D windows should soon be superseded by 3D spatial content.

How does it work?

Our core product is the MaxWhere Engine, which, though in many ways similar to today’s highly successful graphical engines (e.g., Unity, Unreal), is also very much unlike these, because it was optimized for applications not in gaming, but in everyday digital life and in professional industry – including IoT applications. Based on the MaxWhere Engine, we are developing a complete ecosystem for applications in productivity, education, and industry. Third-party developers can also license our engine to create their own white label products.

What are does Maxwhere provides you?

Maxwhere helps you to be always on top of your projects with his fast and innovative interfaces. It gives you the chance to switch between projects & teams and share your content in the fastest way possible. It also connects you to other collaboration apps already very used (teamwork, trello, slack, asana … and more). It’s easy to learn and the 3D graphic make your work more interesting, without slowing it down. It also can be used by students to improve the velocity of their studies.

What did Maxwhere accomplished?

Our Browser23 technology represents a new philosophy towards web surfing: instead of forcing users to place a limited number of tabs side by side, limiting their options in switching between them and finding the right ones at the right time, it allows browser windows to be laid out in 3D space, grouped by topic and scaled in size by importance. More recently, we developed the Ultra Sharing technology, which enables users to create VR offices containing a large number of documents and even complete project workflows, and to then share those offices with a single click. Research shows that all of these solutions combined make for a hugely effective way to visualize, share and work on large amounts of information while maintaining a low cognitive workload – a huge asset for understanding, configuring and managing large-scale networked digital ecosystems.


What is the Maxwhere’s history?

The year 2017 saw the first public release of MaxWhere as a presentation tool with 3D slides in interactive spaces. This solution is a blend between PowerPoint and Prezi, extended with 3D objects. MaxWhere’s application store was also opened in 2017 ( with a number of publicly available spaces and interactive 3D applications. From a technological standpoint, MaxWhere guarantees an accelerating growth in 3rd party applications through its unique way of combining 3D spaces with web technologies; thus the rich world of open source software (such as Node.js, NPM, and Node-RED) can be channeled into MaxWhere applications.



The best Portuguese, Kosovar and Hungarian startups already have their representatives for the StartUp Europe Awards 2017

Last December was a busy month for the StartUp Europe Awards, as several countries celebrated their finals, including Portugal, Kosovo and Hungary.

Live Electric Tour is going to represent Portugal in the Eurovision for StartUps. The winner of Fábrica de StartUps is a Self Drive experience in 100% electric vehicles for tourists in the City of Lisbon.Our vehicles are the only ones in the world, because they are equipped with Free Wi-fi, GPS Audio Guide, and a Live camera that lets you share the whole experience with family and friends through social media.

Fábrica de Startups the Portuguese country manager´s mission is to help people become successful entrepreneurs. Using their methodology they help them identifying business ideas, creating teams, designing their business model, finding customers and in the launching of the company.

The victor of Innovation Centre Kosovo is Formon, they will represent Kosovo in the Creative category. Formon designs, develops and manufactures easy to use and affordable desktop 3D Printers.

The Innovation Centre Kosovo is a centre whose aim is to connect research and development component of scientific field with the business sector, focusing on creating new job opportunities oriented towards the future, based on knowledge and new technology. ICK was founded to support entrepreneurship, innovation and commercially based business development, with a focus on information and communication technology. The centre supports both start-ups and existing companies with the potential for growth.

Both the gastronomy category and the IoT category will be covered in Hungary. Neumann Non for profit winners are Maxwhere for IoT and for Gastronomy. The first one has developed a 3D operation system for those who want to step out of the barriers of the 2D environment while making their work environment more effective. Maxwhere is for radically transforming the daily human experience through richer, more entertaining and socially meaningful shared VR. A core vision behind MaxWhere is to present people with personal, social and public VR spaces mixed with real-word interplay. In second hand is a B2B Horeca Marketplace for trusted suppliers and buyers.  Through a one request multiple quotation method contacts relevant and approved suppliers that can meet the needs of the buyers.
