From positioning technology to blockchain for art – KTH Innovation welcomes Batch 9!

Published Mar 14, 2019

15 new startup projects have been accepted to Batch 9 of the KTH Innovation pre-incubator program. With alumni including known startups like Airmee, Degoo, Manomotion, and Greenely, it’s safe to say that these names are worth keeping track of.

Interest in the KTH Innovation pre-incubator program, a year-long program for early-stage,

tech-based projects from KTH looking to speed up their development, has been rising steadily since the start in 2011. Batch 9 received a record-breaking number of applications.

- Over 150 startup projects have passed through the program, says Donnie Lygonis, Business Development Coach at KTH Innovation. We’ve seen pivots, rapid development, and those that don’t go all the way, but in the end around 70% of all projects entering the program come out successfully at the other end. It’s always fun to welcome a new batch!

As always, the startup projects accepted to the program are a mixed group. Covering everything from reducing methane emissions from cows, to sweat sensors and motion tracking technology, the accepted projects reflect the diversity of skills and technologies developed at KTH.

During one year, these 15 startup projects will get office space at KTH Innovation, structured business development coaching, weekly workshops to develop their startups and themselves as entrepreneurs, and join in the KTH Innovation community, with the aim of giving the participants the tools and training they need to accelerate their projects.

- Joining KTH Innovation’s pre-incubator program is the start of a journey that we expect to be filled with excitement and determination, says Ines Illipse, co-founder of Stage Me Up!, one of the startup projects accepted to the program. We are looking forward to all the lessons we are yet to learn with the support of talented people in the program whether it was our coaches or other startup mates.
