Levitate named Handipreneur of the Year 2023

Last night, Levitate was celebrated as the recipient of the prestigious title of Handipreneur of the Year 2023 - an award focusing on startups that make a difference for people with disabilities.

The freedom to play

As part of the award, we received a prize of 50,000 DKK (Danish Kroner) and direct access to the Startup Match, a Nordea, and Microsoft pitch event, where investors are matched with startups that have the potential to grow.

Due to our dedication to creating innovative and high-performance sports prosthetics, we were acknowledged for our commitment to breaking barriers and enabling leg amputees to achieve their full athletic potential. Our products have revolutionized the sports world for people with disabilities, fostering a more inclusive and diverse approach to sports participation.
