Sixth Sense is an open innovation platform where ambitious, scaling start-ups can connect with world-class companies to find scale and solve some of humanity’s biggest challenges. It runs two challenges a year and currently inviting applications to join the next cohort.

Following the success of the inaugural cohort programme earlier this year, Sixth Sense is excited to launch the second challenge, aimed at advanced manufacturing start-ups in visualisation and digital reality, and intelligence and automation.

This cohort’s theme builds on Hexagon’s commitment to accelerate innovation and drive the global shift to a new sustainable way of operating. Sixth Sense will see a focus on the following areas of emerging technology: digital twin innovations, metaverse factory design, predictive and prescriptive intelligence, and autonomous and sustainable manufacturing operations.

As with the first cohort, the most innovative proposals and applications will be chosen to pitch to an expert panel at our Pitch Day, with 10 companies chosen for an intensive innovate-on-the-job scaling program to deliver a concrete project, supported by coaching, workshops and connections to Hexagon customers.

Three winners will later be selected on Demo Day and provided with resources for true globalization, including funding, worldwide office space, access to Hexagon’s full suite of products and services, incorporation into its ecosystem and exposure to its coveted customer base.
