    Our drone is a flying camera to collect data for the inventory management.
    Benjamin Federmann, CEO and Co-Founder doks.innovation
     
    The Startup 
    The startup doks.innovation enables companies to monitor their warehouses via drones, which can fly indoors without smacking on any shelf or wall. Doks is not a hardware startup. doks.innovation provides only the ai software for the drones to enable them to fly indoors. On the other hand, they are also working closely with hardware providers, since they have very specific requirements for their drones. The drones are using cutting-edge drone hardware, which is not yet publicly available.
    The company is still small, but they have reference customers like Mars and BMW.
    Our clients have to press a button and come back 3 or 4 hours later. The data collection is totally automated. The customer can ask almost any question and can find the answer in our data.
    Benjamin Federmann, CEO and Co-Founder doks.innovation
     Venture Capital Fundingdoks.innovation is open to talking to new investors from Europe and the US. They are looking for the next financing round in Q1 2021 and to expand to the US in 2021.
     
    When we stared there was no hardware available for what we have been looking for.
    Benjamin Federmann, CEO and Co-Founder doks.innovation
     
     
    The Video Interview is set to go live on October 15th, 2020 19.00 CET Frankfurt/Paris/Zürich/Milanohttps://youtu.be/yi8SmEMuuj8
     
    Drones are good for land surveying, but are there areas where drones are currently not working? So I made more than 100 interviews in one and a half year.

    Quoscient helps to analyze, investigate and respond to cyber-threats

    This is the last episode before our summer break of this podcast. We will be back in September!

    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.

    It costs hackers just a few hundred Dollars or Euros to build up an attack campaign. The effort on the other side is thousands, sometimes millions to understand this kind of campaign.

    The StartupQuoScient (https://www.quoscient.io/, https://www.crunchbase.com/organization/quoscient)  is a cybersecurity startup, which recently split into three parts to better pursue their respective activities. Two of those entities are still headquartered in Frankfurt, one in Columbia, Maryland (close to Baltimore). They basically split along their business lines:
    QuoLab Technologies – Defense Technology https://quolab.com/QuoSec – Security Consulting https://www.quosec.net/QuoIntelligence – Cyber Threat Intelligence https://quointelligence.eu/ 
    [A company] first must understand what their most critical assets are and what are the [cyber] risks to those assets.
    Ioannis Bizimis, Co-Founder QuoScient
     Venture Capital FundingQuoScient has just raised venture capital. They may be looking at another funding round in the fall of 2020. If you want to keep posted, reach out to us.
     
    Threats can not only come from the outside. Capable hackers can also send you someone, pretending to work for you as contractor. … they do this professionally.
