Review of 2017 and milestones for 2018

2017 has been a fantastic year for Blickshift! After three years in the making we brought the most advanced eye tracking analysis software to the market. In parallel, we made the metamorphose from being scientists to being a successful company. But at first, let’s have a look on the highlights of 2017.

The year 2017 has started with a fantastic show at the Start-Up-Autobahn expo day event. During this event, we have presented Blickshift in front of more than 1.000 engineers, managers and start up people from the automotive sector.

Our own booth at the CeBIT as part of the common booth of bw-i and the University of Stuttgart was the next higlight in March. During one week, we have generated more than hundred leads! After more than three years of development, we also have presented the first official release of Blickshift Analytics to the public!


At the end of March, Michael gave an inspiring talk at the Accenture InnovationForum in Munich, the pre-event of the Deutscher Innovationspreis. In May, we have been at the A2A Symposium of Gigatronic, in July at the EDM Forum of Daimler AG in Stuttgart. During a side event of the European Conference of Visual Perception in August, Michael gave a talk about eye tracking analysis beyond heat maps and scan paths. In parallel, we were guests at many start up events and local industry events in Stuttgart.

During summer, we reorganized and improved our sales. One important part of our sales philosophy is the cooperation with partners. During the first half of 2018, there will be exciting news about our future partnerships! In early summer, we then have aquired our first customer, a big supplier in the automotive industry. More customers followed during the second half of the year. Blickshift Analytics became better and better by many updates. We completely reworked our website to show all the new possibilities for our users in the industry and academia. Media frequently has reported about our young company.
