Global Start-up Service

ISC3 – International Sustainable Chemistry Collaborative Centre

The ISC3 Global Start-up Service

Start-ups are a unique source of knowledge and innovation that can contribute to a more sustainable future. In order to help innovators related to Sustainable Chemistry succeed in different stages of development, the ISC3 Innovation Hub launched the Global Start-up Service, the world’s first programme providing holistic support to Sustainable Chemistry innovators globally. The Service targets entrepreneurs along the entire innovation chain: ideators, early-stage innovators and advanced entrepreneurs who have the potential to solve urgent challenges of sustainable and inclusive development. The Service addresses four key aspects:

  • Sustainability: Fostering commercialisation of sustainable innovation
  • Chemistry: Addressing exclusively chemistry-related start-ups
  • Global Reach: Creating an enabling environment on a global basis
  • Tailored Support: Providing tailored support based on start-up needs

Your benefits

Entrepreneurs in different development stages have different needs. That’s why our services differ along the innovation chain and are clustered around the three subsequent action fields:

DISCOVER: We support you in discovering new ideas and turning them into early-stage innovations

CREATE: We help you in developing concrete marketable value based on your first ideas

EXPAND: We support you with your expansion and commercialisation strategies

The Global Start-up Service includes:

  • Access to the Online Library, including an overview of publicly available information such as articles on entrepreneurship, sustainable chemistry and relevant market information
  • Facilitation of contacts to international experts and advisors
  • Networking and matchmaking services across sectors and value chains: P2P, B2B, B2C
  • Support in accessing incubator and accelerator programmes, as well as other types of support
  • Conduct of ideation, pitching and showcasing events
  • …and much more!
