EAIGLE, the winner of the Made-in-York Region 2020 Pitch Competition, will be rewarding three businesses or organizations located in the York region with 8,000 dollars to go towards the implementation of the tech company’s advanced crowd thermal screening solutions. This will protect employees from COVID-19 outbreaks, and maximize workplace operations through their touchless, automated screening software.

About the competition:

In December 2020 ventureLAB hosted a Pitch Competition in partnership with Digital Main Street and the Region of York. VentureLAB selected the top 8 companies with innovative products and solutions that would help the community rebuild through and beyond the current COVID-19 crisis. Judges evaluated companies on their innovation, economic impact, and community collaboration.
EAIGLE, a company that offers AI solutions for crowd monitoring and occupancy data analytics to outfit public places with high foot traffic, won first place. With the rise of COVID-19, EAIGLE introduced a new AI solution that automates the total COVID-19 screening process for employees at points of entry. The solution monitors large crowds non-invasively without any interruption in traffic flow.
