The Mexican startup Cuby Smart was awarded in the Airtech Challenge, a regional competition highlighting innovative projects in the Heating, Ventilation, and Air Conditioning (HVAC) industry.

This recognition emphasizes the importance of evolving air conditioning to balance comfort with sustainability in the current world.

Energy efficiency, key in this pursuit, not only reduces electric consumption but also directly impacts reducing carbon emissions and greenhouse gases.

In the final phase of the competition, Cuby Smart and other startups presented innovative proposals, and the victory earned the Mexican company a prize of USD$10,000 and a trip to Japan.

Cuby Smart, developed by Arteco Electronics, stands out as a device designed to improve the energy efficiency of air conditioners without compromising user comfort.

Furthermore, Arteco Electronics has been selected to bring its products to recognized stores in Canada.

Cuby, the device in question, is placed in the room, configured via mobile phone, and allows remote air conditioner control through infrared signals or devices like Amazon Echo’s Alexa and Google Home.

The competition highlights innovation in the user experience and emphasizes the importance of reducing emissions throughout the value chain of air conditioning systems.

From acquisition to product disposal, efforts are made to minimize environmental impact, exploring lower-impact alternatives and adopting sustainable practices at each stage.

Additionally, the circular economy is addressed in the management of refrigerants as a critical solution.

Recovery, regeneration, reuse, and proper disposal of these compounds promote environmental sustainability, reduce dependence on raw materials, and decrease waste generation.

In the eleventh edition of incMTY, the entrepreneurship platform of Tecnológico de Monterrey, the importance of innovation, investments, and alliances in the entrepreneurial ecosystem is highlighted.

It is mentioned that Monterrey has become a prominent center for businesses in Mexico, with foreign investments totaling USD$42 million, thanks to initiatives driving innovation and entrepreneurship in the region.
