Anake, REMA and MechaGel receive an Innogrant

— The EPFL Startup Launchpad has granted three awards of CHF100,000 each to three future EPFL startups: Anake has developed a breakthrough therapy which they hope will cure cardiac fibrosis, REMA aims to revolutionize the way we produce green hydrogen, and MechaGel has developed a new minimally-invasive method of repairing cartilage damage.

Elythor, AeroSpec and Beyond Scroll receive an Innogrant

— The EPFL Startup Launchpad has granted three awards of CHF100,000 each to future EPFL startups Elythor, AeroSpec, and Beyond Scroll. The first startup project has designed a new drone to inspect and monitor long linear structures such as powerlines, bridges, and railways, the second aims to protect human health by analysing the make-up of air pollution, and the third has created a new method to compress hydrogen – a gas which has the potential to be a major factor in slowing down climate change.

A 100k FIT Tech Seed Loan for PROUD

— To meet the growing demand in high-tech items, PROUD is designing the next generation of semi-conductors using diamond layers. The patented technology developed at EPFL solves the cooling problem of current silicon semi-conductors. With the Tech Seed loan from the Foundation for Technological Innovation (FIT), the start-up will pursue the technology scale-up and the prototype’s development.

A 100k FIT Tech Seed Loan for TWIICE

— Founded in 2020, EPFL startup TWIICE designs modular exoskeletons for the lower limbs that enable paralysed people to stand up and walk again. The Tech Seed loan from the Foundation for Technological Innovation (FIT) will allow the startup to conduct the clinical trial for its exoskeleton leading to its commercialisation in 2023 in Europe, Canada, and the US.

Swistor and IsoSpec Analytics granted by EPFL Startup Launchpad

— The EPFL Startup Launchpad has granted two awards of CHF100,000 each to future EPFL startups Swistor and IsoSpec Analytics. While the former startup project enables high-energy and ultra-fast charging energy storage devices (supercapacitors) with a significantly reduced carbon footprint, the later is looking to reduce the time new drugs reach the market through optimising early-stage development.
