Check out the 2022/23 Swiss Participants
Groam - ETH Zurich
At Groam Tech (AG) our vision is to produce foamed biomaterials with equivalent performance and competitive price as today's conventional foams based on petrochemicals like polystyrene and polyurethane. We have proprietary bio-based and biodegradable materials that we are foaming with standard industrial machinery and also with novel foaming technology. We are building a supply chain for our bio-based foams and looking for partners along the way. We are also looking for end-users interested in green plastic alternatives for fast disposables.
Naturloop - Bern Univeristy of Applied Sciences
NaturLoop aims to reduce the environmental footprint of furniture and construction materials. The Biel-based startup developed a technology to upcycle coconut husks in combination with a natural adhesive system to manufacture wood-based panel alternatives. NaturLoop is working towards the market launch of Cocoboard, which has the potential to transform a fraction of the 21 million tonnes of coconut husks that are burned in farms every year into panels suited for furniture and interior architecture.
Upgrain - University of St. Gallen
We have developed a highly innovative upcycling process to mechanically extract proteins and dietary fibers from Brewers Spend Grain in an efficient and sustainable way. The resulting products; our stable powders can then be used for various food applications, as a healthy nutritious and most importantly; sustainable alternative source of high-quality plant based protein.
Alter Ego - ETH Zurich
Alter Ego's purpose is to create a virtual fitting room on shopping platforms. From 1 picture, and height of an individual, their technology is able to create an accurate 3D body and extract all measurements. Users will then be able to digitally try clothes online in order to make sure to order fitting articles. Retailers will be able to integrate Alter Ego's API to their system, and will only have to share data about their articles to make it work
Wyblo - University of St. Gallen
Wyblo is the Learning Experience Platform designed to put people back at the center of the learning process. The solution makes it possible to: save time through automation of administrative processes; improve training paths through real-time feedback analysis; and create a holistic and integrated teaching/learning experience with great value-added services (e.g., hosting and library). Wyblo also offers the opportunity to join Ecosistema Formazione Italia, the professional community for Italy that brings together all relevant players in the industry.
Authentic Seafood Analogues - ETH Zurich
Established capture and culture fishery practices largely contradict environmental protection strategies and fail to satisfy the current demand for seafood in an ecologically sustainable way. These circumstances, paired with a global rise in demand for seafood, present an enormous incentive to produce sustainable seafood analogues without a catch. We utilize a novel texturization platform to develop, scale, and implement authentic seafood analogues that match taste, texture, appearance, and nutritional quality of actual seafood.
