The Swedish start-up FineCell that recently joined the InnoEnergy Highway has received the prize of the most promising start-up in the final of the prestigious competition Imagine Chemistry – The AkzoNobel Chemicals Startup Challenge.
Imagine Chemistry was launched to help solve real-life chemistry-related challenges and uncover sustainable business opportunities. The 2018 edition generated no less than 150 innovative ideas from start-ups, scale-ups, scientists and others and FineCell was among the 20 finalists that competed in the final stage last week.
At the end of the three-day event, where they were supported by RD&I and business development experts to further develop their business ideas and concepts, FineCell made it to the top 10 start-ups and chemical researchers who will see their ideas move a step closer to commercialisation after being named winners of the 2018 edition of AkzoNobel Specialty Chemicals’ Imagine Chemistry challenge.
Congratulations to the team!
