Master’s Degree in Bioengineering

Nil Salomó is an IQS alumnus. He earned the Master’s Degree in Bioengineering, graduating in the class of 2017. After finishing the Master’s Degree, he created Proppos, a start-up that has developed an intelligent and autonomous automatic payment system that uses artificial intelligence. Read the full interview with Nil below.

I studied nanotechnology in undergraduate school, but I wanted to do the Master’s in Bioengineering at IQS to learn about the biotechnology side and project management. I was really pleased with the programme, mainly due to the time spent doing laboratory work and due to its multidisciplinary focus. I gained a ton of valuable knowledge that I was able to apply to my start-up later on.

During the Master’s Degree, I joined the IQS Materials Department and worked alongside people who had chosen to be entrepreneurs. Seeing colleagues who had taken a leap of faith to create new things really motivated me. 

I’ve always been in contact with the hospitality sector and one of the big issues we identified was lines for paying. And that’s how Proppos came to be".

From a problem to a solution

Proppos is an intelligent and autonomous automatic payment system that uses artificial intelligence. Thanks to AI, it can recognize any type of product without needing to scan it, offering a very rapid purchasing experience. Proppos already has numerous clients and has been subsidized through a Neotec grant, one of the most prestigious grants in Spain.
