A comprehensive understanding of the food sector and tailored support to develop and commercialise their business model - that's what Dinc and Keitel expect when they travel to Osnabrück-Quakenbrück for the one-week bootcamp, one of the initiatives of "startup.niedersachsen". "This is a great opportunity to benefit from the startup experience and network of the Seedhouse, to access the high-tech infrastructure and know-how of the German Institute of Food Technologies (DIL) and to make valuable contacts in the food industry," says a delighted Keitel, who will take on the role of managing director in future due to his interdisciplinary training as an industrial chemist.
With the active support of Prof. Dr. Boris Mizaikoff, the founding team wants to offer individualised filter materials in flexible formats that can be used to optimise analytical, diagnostic and industrial processes. The smart filters, thus adapted to the application, are to be used for water treatment on the one hand, but also for the enrichment and isolation of high-quality molecules such as active substances, proteins, aromatic substances or food supplements on the other. Thus, with their innovative technology, they contribute significantly to a high quality of life in terms of high water quality and contaminant-free food (high-purity end products). Their concept combines two technologies: 3D printing and digital synthesis. This saves resources, saves time and can thus be realised cheaply.
In an association of 34 well-known companies and funded by the state of Lower Saxony, the investment company Seedhouse offers a platform for innovations from the fields of agriculture, food and digitalisation. The Accelerator is open to start-ups from all phases and helps with customised solutions in all areas of development. With its "FoodHyper" programme, it promotes founders and those interested in founding in the food industry.
