The Innovation Camp 2022: 7 pilot projects and a 100% success rate

All seven start-ups delivered convincing pitches, proving they have the answers to some of the most critical challenges of our time. Together with their corporate partners, the teams are moving into the acceleration phase and will present the results of their proof-of-concept projects at our Demo Day in March 2023.

Highlights of our third edition

Together with our partners for this edition, we decided on 7 search fields.
For example, carbon capture, innovative energy storage, heat pumps, and solutions for PV surplus, amongst others.

Enjoy a recap of our Innovation Camp of Batch #3

We want to congratulate all our amazing start-ups and partners on their successful collaboration! In three cases, we have multiple corporate partners collaborating with one start-up on their use case. 🤝

This is a major milestone for us. Seeing industry-leading corporates putting their efforts and resources into joint projects is confirmation that we are moving in the right direction: towards green energy transformation. ♻
