IQS Tech Factory has launched the third edition of IQS Next Tech, the only industrial acceleration programme in Spain, which chooses 10 science or tech-based start-ups (biotechnology, MedTech, energy, food, etc.) and mentors them for six months to transform their prototypes into an initial production series. It also helps them find industrial partners and domestic and international investors.
The start-ups attend training sessions, visit factories and get the advice of mentors specialising in different areas of industry, like Marta Príncep, Managing Partner at BHV Partners; Xavier Farrés, director of Operations at Uriach; Oriol Estrada, director of Innovation at the Catalan Health Institute; and Enrique Shadah, director of Strategic Relations at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT), among others.
IQS Next Tech is supported by ACCIÓ (Government of Catalonia).
