Accelerator program upCAT

The selected teams work together on their value proposition, business model and acceleration of market entry - together with trainers and mentors. At the end of the program is the Demo Day: pitching in front of potential investors and the regional start-up community.

Why upCAT?
In the Accelerator, the teams learn relevant methods, tools and skills for building your business model and implement them directly in your business idea. The upCAT follows a very simple structure: short theoretical input on the methods, practical application to your own start-up project, feedback loops with trainers and the other participating teams.

We are a team of experienced consultants and trainers, which dedicates itself with bundled know-how to the requirements of the company founders. We use the latest methods and techniques to support start-ups in accelerating their market entry. We also offer participants access to mentors, industry contacts and a strong local start-up community.

Teams of scientists, researchers or students from the KIT environment with a focus on deep technology.
