EIT Climate-KIC Cleantech Business Lounge at MYC-Event

Do you want to be an entrepreneur and accelerate cleantech inventions? Be part of the Cleantech Business Lounge at the MYC-Event on 11 April.


The MYC-Event is a joint event of EIT Climate-KIC and UtrechtInc to give (future) entrepreneurs the opportunity to meet a select group of inventors with great business ideas. Those inventors are looking for entrepreneurial minds to bring their solutions to market.

We will select innovations with market potential. These are (future) start-ups or pioneers, major research institutes or universities. What are still missing are co-founders. With this event, we bring both parties together to get acquainted and potentially form a team. With the objective of setting up a business application from a prototype, publication or scientific research.

Entrepreneurial minds

We will present a range of inventions which are ready to enter the market. The inventors would like to get in touch make their invention a business success. They will showcase their business opportunities and It is up to you to let them know that your are interested in becoming part of the entrepreneurial team.


Before the event starts on 11 April, we will regularly send you an update of the innovations that are presented at the event. We do this through a newsletter and a Network App.

During the event, start-ups and researchers present their propositions with their own stand in an informal market. Prospective co-founders walk around and discover in short sessions whether there is a match as a complementary team member.  You will also be able to get acquainted via a speed dating and several pitches.

Agree on your shared future

The business opportunities are developed by large research institutes and universities so it is up to you to come to an agreement on the terms and conditions that will apply.
