Clean solutions for the environment
The Start4Chem Incubator promotes innovations in green chemistry and biochemistry.
The chemistry of the future is green and is referred to as “Chemistry 4.0”. What is needed are technologies that reduce emissions, conserve resources and use energy more efficiently. The change towards more sustainability needs innovations from the world of science.
Are you pursuing an interesting approach in the field of chemistry/biochemistry or would you like to apply for a patent? “Start4Chem” accelerates the – traditionally very time-consuming and costly – process from the idea to industrial application. The Incubator not only offers advice on ways and means of founding a company, but also provides state-of-the-art laboratories and offices for founders. The Start4Chem team puts you in touch with contacts and helps you to find funding sources.
“We empower future entrepreneurs who are taking courageous steps, trying things out, failing and starting again,” says Anna Oelbermann, managing director and coach at Start4Chem. The services are primarily aimed at students and researchers at Ruhr-Universität. But, if capacities are available, they are also open to interested third parties in the field of chemistry, who
- would like to test the feasibility of a product idea,
- would like to develop a business model based on their own R&D findings,
- intend to participate in start-up competitions,
- want to apply for public funding,
- are planning a start-up in the field of chemistry.
Prospective founders are welcome to take advantage of the WSC’s diverse range of events, coaching and advisory services and benefit from its extensive network. Start4Chem’s cooperation with the Ruhr Explores Solvation (RESOLV) cluster of excellence at the Ruhr-Universität’s Faculty of Chemistry and Biochemistry opens up additional opportunities: the cluster combines national and international top-level research in an ambitious R&D network. Become a part of the network and change society with your ideas!
