Industrial companies constantly look for material innovations to improve efficiency and sustainability. Each Foundry company has ambitious strategic goals for material sustainability, and the opportunities for Foundry companies and startups are limitless: from sourcing and designing raw materials for recyclability to improving manufacturing and construction processes and even end-user products.
The Combient Foundry Cycle is a great forum for a startup to get access to the relevant decision-makers. After two meetings, we already have a plan for a POC and practical steps in further partnership with Stora Enso... This is a very efficient use of time.
We found a good match with KONE’s search for new approaches to predictive maintenance. Combient Foundry has been part of the whole process, from making it easy to join and screening propositions, to hosting the meetings and taking part in facilitating the scoping phase.
