The START UP ACCELERATOR for
The Advanced Materials Competition (AdMaCom) is a fast-paced 3-week Accelerator Program for Startups in Advanced Materials.
The Advanced Materials Competition is run in two formats: AdMaCom and AdMaCom Scale.
AdMaCom focuses on: IP Strategy, Investment & funding opportunities, Technical & Business Mentoring, Pitch training and Networking - this is what we have learned are the most important things for early stage startups in Materials Science.
AdMaCom Scale is geared towards later stage startups focusing on scaling up their technologies. Topics include: Pricing, Internationalisation & Marketing strategy, Valuation, Due Diligence & Exit Strategies, HR & Recruitment, How to build highly effective boards, Negotiation skills and Pitching for investment.
AdMaCom and AdMaCom Scale are hybrid events, bringing back the personal element of the accelerator while also allowing startups from anywhere in the world to participate. The startups are invited to join us in Berlin for the last week for in person workshops, tours and the highly anticipated Demo Day!
We will be selecting 10-12 startups per cohort to join our programs and learn how to take their innovative technologies to the next level.
