Start-up Area at the inaugural formnext powered by tct.
formnext powered by tct is now once again inviting innovative young companies that utilise additive technologies to enter the formnext Start-up Challenge. This competition will recognise the best new and feasible ideas for businesses and products. formnext is organising the Start-up Challenge in cooperation with the 3D Printing Cluster.
formnext is on the lookout for companies no older than five years that operate independently from established firms to take part in the Start-up Challenge. The winning products and innovations will be chosen based on their utility, state of development, and other factors that demonstrate their market readiness.
Five winners will secure a spot on a booth sponsored by formnext in the international Start-up Area of its 2016 exhibition, including corresponding construction services and extensive marketing opportunities.
“The Start-up Challenge gives young companies the chance to present themselves and their products to a highly qualified international audience and make some valuable contacts on our innovative exhibition platform,” states Sascha F. Wenzler, Vice President at exhibition organiser Mesago Messe Frankfurt GmbH for formnext.
Representatives from the realms of science, industry, and investment will make up the jury in charge of selecting the five best start-ups. While they will evaluate each participant’s overall business concept, the individual criteria in play will include the uniqueness and market maturity of the idea involved, the sales concept and team behind it, their marketing strategy, and related financing.
Interested start-ups can enter via email at firstname.lastname@example.org by 28th July 2016. Application forms are now available on the formnext website.
formnext powered by tct will take place from 15-18th November 2016 in Frankfurt am Main.
