We are very proud to welcome the following companies to our Accelerator batch this spring!
With the help of our experts and mentors, through workshops and one-on-one sessions, the startups are more than ready to change the world with their innovative ideas. Learn more about their goals, aspirations and cutting edge technologies in this article.
Fairm BV develops natural and low-impact building materials based on biotechnology, enabling suppliers in the built environment to catch up with the growing demand for low impact and circular building products. Their main focus is to grow the future of buildings.
Tiler develops the intuitive charging solution that helps to create a self-managing e-bike fleet. Park the e-bike with the Charging kickstand on the Charging tile and that’s it; the e-bike starts charging immediately. No more hassle and clutter with cables, or the risk that an e-bike isn’t charged, charging goes intuitively. Users will have an e-bike fleet that is always ready to go for their guests, employees or tenants.
Respyre has developed and patented a new bio-receptive concrete product, which – when applied to existing structures – facilitates the spontaneous growth of moss. While enhancing beneficial ecosystems of moss the underlying construction is protected against weathering, effectively extending its lifetime. Respyre is working towards a final product that will be easy in application, cost-effective and low in maintenance. Their value proposition is to make vertical greening much more simple, sustainable and accessible by combining concrete waste and mosses into a self-sustaining vertical landscape.
Diwama aims to provide the best image recognition of waste types and brands across the entire waste value chain, and therefore become the go-to company for big data on waste. Diwama’s vision is to make waste management seamlessly accessible and affordable by bridging the technology gap between developing and developed countries through the use of AI and data.
MangoStone is a company that develops software and hardware solutions to enable waste collectors to achieve the highest level of logistical efficiency and transparency. The company creates a fundamental piece of infrastructure on which circular economies can be built. This is achieved by significantly decreasing the costs of collecting waste through a dynamic collection process (up to 40% in cost reduction), monitoring the exact origin, destination, and quality of the collected waste, and bringing important data insights to light so that circular economies can be improved.
Civinc is a customizable digital platform for civic education where students can engage in meaningful discussions with peers who think differently. In safe, anonymous, one-on-one chat-based ‘speed dates’ they can form their opinion, expand their horizon and develop vital civic skills, while the data gives teachers valuable insight on sentiment, language and performance.
BioFashionTech is an innovative start-up that makes use of a scalable biotech process to turn pre and post-consumer textile waste into valuable products that can be used for biocomposites and chemistry. Furthermore, the company separate polyester and dyes to create a closed-loop solution. The technology does not involve the use of any harmful chemicals and can process cotton, viscose, and poly/cotton blends. As a result, BioFashionTech brings 85% of textile waste that currently is incinerated or ends up in landfills to sustainable, circular biobased products. At the same time, a startup reduces the amount of fossil fuel used to make synthetic fibres, which account for 52% of the global fibre market.
Hoursec is founded on a breakthrough technology with a competitive advantage based on an innovative learning model architecture (HW/SW) which merges a completely new kernel architecture, allowing real-time, low power on device inference and training. Hoursec’s architecture is characterised by flexibility and robustness in non-linear dynamical inputs. Wider programmability and model-free applications for the Edge Computing Market.
