NiNiSpeech, which developed an ingenious digital platform for speech disorder treatment, won first place, and AerialGuard, which developed an autonomous navigation system for unmanned aircraft, came in second. Each will receive $200,000 in cash.

This is the second consecutive year that an Israeli startup has won first place in the competition. Last year, DiaCardio, developer of innovative software for decoding echocardiograms, won first prize.
