After having screened countless start-ups in the sectors of CleanTech, FoodTech, Life Science, Health Care and General Tech, we chose nine promising startups which we support on their endeavors. On 16th October, the newcomers joined Accelerace in kicking off the latest round of its six to eight months and equity-free program. Accelerace is hosting 2 to 3 times per year such a batch allowing start-ups to grow together with tailored support from their consultants and in close collaboration with Accelerace’s corporate partner network.
Spotlight on VRinspired, SBTinstruments and Octlight
The current start-ups are not lacking diversity as their core focuses ranges from virtual reality over smart city to ophthalmology. The tech start-up VRinspired brings VR experiences to the masses by delivering solutions for location-based VR centers and their team has an impressive track record in the film and gaming industry.
The FoodTech start-up SBTinstruments is tackling safety issues in the food industry: Conventional hygiene tests in production sites take three days to be evaluated. Three days in which contamination can find its way into the retailers’ or worse, consumers’ hands. SBTinstruments found a way to test bacteria count within five minutes, avoiding costly and potentially dangerous food recalls.
The Danish start-up Octlight is revolutionizing diagnostics in ophthalmology. They are reducing the large number of preventable outcomes of eye disease like visual impairment or even blindness by making 3D images.
