Kickstart Accelerator bridges the gap between startups, corporates, cities, foundations and universities to accelerate deep tech innovation. Program has more than 60 corporate partners. BIOsens became one of 30 teams, out of more than 1500 applications from 86 countries, which was selected to participate in Kickstart Accelerator in Switzerland.

During the program, the team of BIOsens learned how to make it happen. We had a lot of meetings with potential customers. Despite we didn’t make any pilots, communication with potential customers helped to understand that accurate sensor is exactly what clients need but sample preparation is not less important. After that BIOsens started working on the new prototype which included the sample preparation step.
