Posted on: 29/11/2017

KTN is hosting a free webinar where you can learn about opportunities to work with AkzoNobel under their Imagine Chemistry Startup Challenge.


AkzoNobel, together with KPMG, is inviting startups and academics to work with them as equal partners to bring their innovative ideas to market and find solutions to some of the most urgent challenges facing the chemicals industry today.

Imagine Chemistry is focused on startups (or researchers) with a proof of concept who can actively work on making their idea or solution a success. By working with AkzoNobel you could benefit from research support, the opportunity to test production on a larger scale, guidance from experienced researchers and industry experts, access to customers, and other support.
