Over 15 months into the COVID-19 pandemic, universities have been among the hardest hit institutions. With many universities closed to in-person sessions and others struggling to maintain a safe learning environment, the pressure to find solutions for managing the virus has been high. In response, Kiana Analytics, a Silicon Valley-based scaleup, created a solution by innovating on their existing WiFi-based device location technology to produce a COVID-19 exposure solution that helps identify and isolate infected individuals.

Corporate and Government leaders are understanding better the best practices in dealing with the pandemic: wear masks, test regularly, isolate when necessary, clean infected areas immediately and perform contact tracing. The last is the most complicated because it requires manual contacting to locate exposed people.
“Innovation is the engine that drives the world. Covid-19 creates new challenges that have to be met with new and innovative approaches and solutions. This creative potential became visible to everyone on Expo Day – through the exciting discussions by the experts, the presentations by the startups, and the recognition of the innovative achievements of companies,” said Ben Kloss, Director of Plug and Play Austria.
“It’s a great honor to be recognized as the Top Innovator by Plug and Play. We look at innovation as a key driver to grow our company and excited to be working with Plug and Play, its global partners and other startups,” said Nader Fathi, CEO of Kiana Analytics.
