At Science4Life’s 5th Technology Slam, adiutaByte, BRC Solar GmbH, CytoSwitch, Kamedi GmbH and Lignopure GmbH demonstrated strong word acrobatics. In just three minutes, the founders wowed the audience with their business ideas and walked off the stage as winners.

Under the motto “Complex ideas explained simply and with wit”, KfW Bank in Frankfurt became the slamers’ platform.

This year, slam participants were judged in five categories: Energy, Chemestry, Smart Health, Medicine and  Audience prize.

The prize in the Chemistry group went to LignoPure. The founding team is opening up completely new application possibilities for customized lignin products in the life sciences sector, for example in the form of biobased microparticles in personal care. At LignoPure, the plant-based lignin is isolated using only water, enzymes and CO2, which means it retains its natural, non-toxic structure and can also be used in high-priced consumer products.
