Two VU start-ups, Veridis and Photosynthetic, have been selected for Tech Leap's most recent Pole Position programme: Batch #4. Veridis and Photosynthetic both started out in the Demonstrator Lab programme right here at the VU and received guidance from IXA. Today they are housed in Amsterdam Venture Studios on VU Amsterdam Campus. Over the next few months, these fast-growing tech companies will benefit from TechLeap’s Pole Position programme by gaining access to experienced founders, investors, and industry experts who will guide them on their journey towards becoming global leaders.
Veridis, a start-up from VU Amsterdam, has been developing an innovative thermal analysis system that separates top quality plastics from lower quality plastics. Because of this system, both recyclers and producers can assign the correct grade to their materials and price their products accordingly, enabling standardized material certification and grading across the industry.
Photosynthetic started out as a VU Amsterdam tech start-up developing 3D lithography technology which has the potential to become the fastest and, at the same time, the most reliable 3D printing technology of the future.
