The START UP ACCELERATOR for

ADVANCED MATERIALS

The Advanced Materials Competition (AdMaCom) is a fast-paced 2 week Accelerator Program for Startups in Advanced Materials

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 startups in Materials.

In past years, we invited startups to join us in Berlin for the program, but this year will be a little different: AdMaCom 2021 will be online, making it easier for startups from anywhere in the world to participate. 

 

We will be selecting 10 startups per cohort to join our intensive 2-week program and learn how to take their innovative technologies to the next level.
