Who are team Siymb?

Team Siymb are made up of Konstantin Wuenscher, Konstantin Delov and Jakob Zeitler who are a mixture of 1st & 2nd year Exeter University Students.

Siymb looks towards bringing conferences and exhibitions to the twenty first century. It will shatter the fishbowl full of business cards and burn their contents to ashes.

The basic idea is using Microsoft Band wearable to transform the way people interact with each other during conferences and exhibitions.

With a simple handshake, participants will be able to exchange details about each other. No more looking for the right profile or lost contacts. All the information you need will be available through our integrated online system.

To build our customer database simultaneously, they will be targeting the organisers of those event, rather than selling to individuals and offer them various benefits in return of their investment.

The team have already had a TV debut to an audience of over 2,000 viewers when they appeared on day 1 of the Azure Tech Days Special. 

Having won the Cloud Innovation Award at the Imagine Make It Happen event back in March,  the team shared their story with Andrew Fryer on how they are connecting data with their smart bracelet through the cloud and using Azure to solve some of the business challenges they faced whilst developing their Imagine Cup project.
