Academic Startup Competition

During the Academic Startup Competition, more than 25 next generation startups nominated by our Dutch universities and scientific institutions will battle before a jury. They will pitch their innovative ideas in 5 minutes, attempting to gain the most attention and interest.

The 4 nominated Groninger start-ups are: CC Diagnostics, IVWear, EV Biotech en Ocean Grazer.
