Chris Daubney, Project Manager INAM, shares his enthusiasm for the program's success.

“We were delighted to work with another strong batch of deep tech startups during the 3-week AdMaCom 2024 program. The first two weeks were held completely online and saw the startups put through their paces in workshops and 1-on-1 expert mentoring sessions. In week 3 we were pleased to welcome all 10 teams to Berlin for an intense schedule of further in-person training and mentoring sessions, as well as a field trip to Hannover Messe and, of course, the showpiece Demo Day at EINS. Over the three weeks it was a pleasure getting to know the startups, their technologies, and to help them make meaningful connections within INAM's Berlin and international ecosystem. I'd like to thank the startup teams for their professionalism and engagement, as well as our mentors and trainers for their time, effort and dedication in supporting the startups. The INAM Team looks forward to further supporting the AdMaCom Class of '24 on their journeys in the coming years.”
