Aqdot wins at the 2013 European Venture Competition


Climate-KIC’s annual Innovation Festival was held this year in Wroclaw, Poland. A total of 13 start-ups were judged by a panel of investors and representatives from industry as well as the hundreds of climate innovators in the audience who voted for their favorite start-up by sending a text message.

Aqdot was awarded the second prize of €20.000 in the European Finals of Climate-KIC’s 2013 Venture Competition.

Aqdot, a Cambridge-based company, pitched technology that allows for an energy efficient way of manufacturing microcapsules while reducing the usage of raw materials, leading to lower energy consumption and less waste.

Switzland-based OsmoBlue has won the €40.000 first prize and Netherland-based Pectocof were awarded €20,000 in a joint second prize as an Italian start-up picked up the audience award.
