As part of the AHED Program from the Fraunhofer-Gesellschaft we benefit from a one-stop-shop for an enormous source of deep tech ventures and at the same time will find the technological competence for your deep tech need. Therefore, the AHEAD Program gets the right experts at our side, who draw upon their own entrepreneurial experience and support our team through trainings, in-depth workshops, and 1on1s. Thus, AHEAD enables us as a startup and founders to benefit from Fraunhofer technology and bring innovative high-tech products to market. Here, we are supported through focusing on the right problem at the right time, making sure we have the right experts at our side and connecting us to our network for a faster market entry.
 
Last week we accomplished the AHED Bootcamp. This is a 4-day critical entry gate, to assess our venture readiness levels with experts from industry, entrepreneurship as well as team, market and product development coaches to create a tailored roadmap for our startup with their feedback.

Here, we reflected on and planned our next steps in discussions with mentors from the specialist area. Key indicators such as the market, team, product and venture readiness level were evaluated. The goal was to create a well-founded plan of action for the startup based on the results of the readiness level analyses. We were also able to network with other startups and practice our company pitch. It is interesting to notice, that we were accepted as an external startup by the Fraunhofer-Gesellschaft for the AHEAD program, while many other teams are already part of the Fraunhofer-Gesellschaft.

Within the AHED Program of the Fraunhofer-Gesellschaft we will also take part in the Phase I & II to gain more support through networking events, workshops, coaching, co-working, access to Fraunhofer laboratories to bring our technology to market.
