As a part of the rewards, the 12 finalists have been invited to present their solution live at Wolves Summit on May 26 in front of a specialised LG committee. In addition, there were networking and marketing opportunities to share their business proposal with global tech leaders from LG. Selected companies will work with LG Future Home, LG’s new venture client unit, and be given resources and funding to help develop their concepts and take their businesses to the next stage. 

"The LG Future Home Global Innovation Challenge was designed to discover new ideas and technologies to create a better, healthier, and more connected future. We are extremely pleased about our collaboration with Wolves Summit and the quality of the applications. The team was very experienced in the challenge shaping process, not only with coaching but also on facilitation to drive the result.” - said Michael Holtkmap, Venture Partner LG Future Home 

Special recognition goes to Zoundream and Kibus Petcare, whom the jury selected as the winners of the LG Pitching Track, and who went on to compete in the finals of The Great Pitch Contest on the final day of Wolves Summit. 

It was great to have the chance to present our solution to LG executives at Wolves Summit 2022 and to explore potential synergies between Kibus and LG. Kibus is a brand-new category of home appliances and it is designed to cook healthy dog food at home. We are delighted that LG selected Kibus among the top applicants to present in the Finals. The whole event was amazing and we had the chance to meet with investors and great international startups.  - Albert Homs Basas, Co-founder & CFO Kibus

I was delighted with the high level of innovation and quality of the projects presented at the LG Innovation Challeng organised in partnership with Wolves Summit. Zoundream technology is part of the Future Home experience where parents need to feel accomplished, secure, and happy to welcome their newborns at home. Our cry analysis technology could perfectly fit as an innovative scalable solution into LG’s product range providing a lot of added value to existing and future LG consumers. - Ana Laguna Pradas, Co-founder & Data Scientist en Zoundream
