A BIO-ENTREPRENEURIAL TEAM WITH AN INTERNATIONAL TRACK RECORD IN THE LIFE SCIENCE ARENA
With consumers calling for more sustainable and environmental friendlier products and the industry wanting to reduce operating costs, the use of industrial biotech or white biotech has become very interesting and was thought to take over fast. However, the immatureness of some technologies, relatively low fossil fuels prices, and the effectiveness of current chemical processes have shown to be high hurdles for start-ups to take in order to penetrate the market.

... and the chance to profit from a unique network
Our startups not only get the opportunity to shape their businesses in the accelerator, the most promising ones even have the chance to join the NOME network. Nordic Mentor Network for Entrepreneurship (NOME) is a mentoring program with world-class mentors which matches Nordic projects and startups with highly skilled volunteer professionals to help them reach their goals and technology milestones.
As a part of the program, NOME also provides a unique platform for startups to participate in a boot camp in the US. There, the projects get access to FDA experts and contacts to on-site representatives. With inspiration from MIT Venture Mentoring Service, the vision of NOME is to develop and implement a best-in-class mentoring initiative that will propel the Nordic countries into one of the leading life science regions to commercialize high growth life science startups.

At the Novo Nordisk Foundation, we are very pleased with the Nordic Mentor Network for Entrepreneurship (NOME) that Accelerace has established over the last year. Today NOME covers the entire Nordic region including life science start-ups from all Nordic countries and several high-level mentors in the network. NOME is surely on its way to become the beacon in the ecosystem that we had hoped for from the very beginning.
