Ten innovative start-up teams finished Stage 1 of the Climate-KIC Accelerator programme on June 13.
This initial stage gives the startups a clear vision on how to create the highest value with limited resources. There was a wide variety of innovations in this group from a rental service for designer clothes to textile that produces water from air, and from hardware to monitor food waste to sustainable heating and many more great business plans.
The teams successfully completed the program with a final pitch presentation during Graduation Day in front of an independent jury.
