Winners of JEC Group’s Startup Booster Competition Declared at JEC WORLD 2018

March 12 2018

The first day of the JEC WORLD 2018 was marked by the announcement of the three winners of the largest international startup competition in the composite sector.

The three Startup Booster winners are:

N12 TECHNOLOGIES (USA): Introduces vertically aligned carbon nanotubes at interlaminar interfaces to allow tougher, lighter, and more durable composite structures.

INCA-FIBER GMBH (Germany): Has a new electroplating procedure to metallize carbon fibers in a single step using environment-friendly electrolytes to enhance the properties of carbon fibers. These fibers can be used to create functional CFRP as well as new fiber-reinforced metals.

SOUND BOUNCE (Ireland): Has developed a novel patented material which provides over 100 times better noise attenuation in a smaller package compared to conventional materials. This solution could greatly facilitate the adoption of composites in many sectors.

For the first time this year, the public is able to elect its favorite out of the 10 finalist startups.
Dirk AHLBORN (Hyperloop Transportation Technologies), Eimear O’CARROLL (Sound Bounce), and Jelle BLOEMHOF (Airbus)—name of winners.
