Digital kickoff for 17 new KTH startups
Seventeen teams have joined the KTH Innovation pre-incubator program. Yesterday, they met for the first time in a digital kick off. From a simulation platform for quantum mechanics to an app that helps you find the nearest foodtruck: here are the latest startup projects from KTH!
When the Corona virus prevents us from meeting in person, we move online. Yesterday, the new teams in the KTH Innovation pre-incubator program started with a digital kick-off, marking the beginning of an exciting year of developing and learning together. Almost 50 people from 17 teams attended the first meeting, joining in from around Stockholm.
- We’re happy to see such high engagement from the new teams. Going completely digital is a new kind of challenge for us, but it is also a good opportunity for KTH Innovation to redefine how we work and find new tools, says Viktor Olsson, Program Manager at KTH Innovation.
The people in Batch 11 almost make up a mini-KTH, he continues. They’re work in vastly different areas, and come from different backgrounds and countries. They are students and researchers of mixed genders, and several teams have co-founders from other universities or from a business background. A majority also have a clear focus on sustainability.
We’re proud to introduce the teams in Batch 11 of the KTH Innovation pre-incubator program.
