About my Start-up

🦠 We build the nutrition coach for microbes.
Specifically, we empower fermentation industries to solve the substrate challenge in a scalable, cost-effective, and superior way. Our mission is to enable the bio-economy to reach an industrial scale across geographies. Today, most companies develop their solutions (strains or whole bio-processes) based on classic substrates such as glucose-based media. Glucose and other easy-to-use substrates won’t scale though (availability, price). This roadblock remains unsolved and is simply shelved to be solved in the future 🤞. The existing solution is manual work in the lab that takes a lot of time and struggles to explore the space of opportunity (simply a throughput issue).

The solution we build is thus simple: the digital twin for fermentation.

Why your idea is a “winner"?:

We solve the substrate challenge in the cost-sensitive commodity industry that is rapidly growing in the biotech field. This is one of the biggest upcoming challenges in this industry and remains largely unsolved. Today's lab-based physical development flow is simply too costly and slow. Digital twin-based alternatives like our nutrition coach for microbes can drastically reduce development time (60%) and cost (40%). We build a data-centric platform for microbial development that focuses on industries where cost matters.

What is your current or intended business/revenue model?:


Do you have any Patent or IP registered (related to the solution that you are looking for an investment)?:


Has your technology already been implemented in any field/sector?:

yes, pharma and the cell-culture industry use it already successfully

Which market and customer need(s)/problem(s) is (are) your products(s)/service(s) going to solve?:

We help companies that R&D bioprocesses to do this research quicker to find suitable, affordable, and available substrates successfully.
