The program launched in 2020 and has had three cohorts
Participating in the L2M program taught us how to get and have effective interviews with key industry stakeholders. Not just that we are getting conversations with these key stakeholders with guidance how to approach these stakeholders, but that we are asking them the right questions to determine if the market need is great enough that we should invest time and money into developing our technology further for this specific industrial problem. These skills are easily transferable to assessing other industries, which is a great help for us as we have a platform technology that is not restricted to any one industry.

Lab2Market program had a really huge effect on my entrepreneurial journey. Before Lab2Market, I did not know where I should start or what were the next steps. This program made me confident in my product’s commercial viability and [helped me] figure out the way to move forward, which ended in getting into the Ocean Startup Challenge. After being successfully awarded in the idea stream of Ocean Startup Challenge, I got familiar with many fantastic mentors, who I am in contact with to plan my next steps of customer validation.
