LifeSense group, a Dutch startup that brings a solution for urinary incontinence for women through wearable technology, outcompeted 5,000 startups from over 100 countries at the Global Conference of Get in the Ring in Singapore last week.

The 2017 winners of the middleweight and lightweight categories are Hargol FoodTech and Edupass. The Israeli company Hargol FoodTech found a way to reduce the incubation period of grasshoppers, creating the world’s first grasshopper farm! They then turn the grasshoppers into a sustainable protein source for food manufacturers.

Dror Tamir, CEO & Co-founder of Hargol FoodTech:

“It is still hard to believe that a grasshopper farming startup can beat all the rest. It is a significant symbol that agri-tech and food-tech are becoming mainstream as humanity starts to understand its importance. Also, I am proud to represent the Israeli Startup Nation that is developing fast into a leading vertical in the Israeli eco-system.”
