MassChallenge Switzerland 2020 Finalist!
We are among the finalists in the MassChallenge Switzerland 2020 accelerator programme! From a pool of more than 1,000 applicants, Bio2Oil ApS is among the 89 finalists chosen after 2 rounds of judging. The judges represented executives, investors, academia and serial entrepreneurs. The finalists come from 22 different countries and 4 continents. All selected companies have the potential to create widespread impact across industries.
The programme started in July and runs until October. The goal is to have in-person sessions, when the situation allows for it. As a new addition this year, companies get access to MasterChallenge resources. These include world class mentorship, access to top corporate partners, and much more. The programme culminates with the MassChallenge Switzerland Award on October 29. Here the most promising startups compete for a share of the up to CHF 1 million in equity-free awards.
Bio2Oil ApS is a privately held company established in 2014 developing HTL solutions. Our technology presents a scalable solution for the decentral conversion of waste biomass. The final product is a stable crude oil, which is able to be upgraded into sustainable drop in fuels. Learn more about our technology here and about our company here.
