At the very core of Abundance Gate’s dynamic and inclusive ecosystem lie our startups: highly innovative deep tech companies developing science-based cutting-edge solutions to some of the world’s most pressing problems. We know that the path from fundamental research to commercialization is long and complex. This is where our lab-to-market advisory for startups comes in.
Over the years we have developed proprietary analysis and learning tools derived from decades long experience, practical real-world examples and academic research from top universities and research institutes around the world. This way our scientific founders concentrate on the fundamental technical challenges ahead while we help them successfully define, build and scale a sustainable, profitable business solution.
Scope of startups
We target predominantly startups with a technology readiness level (TRL) of 3-7, with an already proven technology, tangible traction and seed or pre-seed funding. Around 20% of our portfolio also includes earlier-stage startups. Our service products are entirely needs-based. We first define the core needs for each startup before designing a carefully curated course of action. We do not take equity and offer affordable services including access to leading international experts.

Our startup services are part of a wider inclusive deep tech ecosystem. Startups not only can rent state-of-the-art laboratory and office space and benefit from all our services on-site, but our startup advisory services also take place off-site. Together with an extensive network of local and international experts, including access to over 3,000 scientists, we can help advise startups from all around the world.
