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.
Within the framework of the Accelerator, the teams learn relevant methods, tools and competencies for building your business model and implement these directly in your business idea. The upCAT follows a very simple structure: short theoretical input on the methods, practical application to the own start-up project, feedback loops with trainers and the other participating teams.
We are a team of experienced consultants and trainers, who dedicate ourselves to the requirements of company founders with bundled know-how. We use the latest methods and techniques to support start-ups in accelerating their market entry. In addition, we offer participants access to mentors, industry contacts and a strong local start-up community.
Teams of scientists and researchers from the KIT environment with a focus on deep technology.
