First price at RWTÜV Startup price

Proud, honored and totally happy – that’s the feeling we went home with yesterday. And with the first prize!

RWTÜV celebrated its 150th anniversary this year. And on this anniversary, a startup prize was announced. Better Bau and Terranigma have entered the final together with us. The award ceremony took place together with the board of RWTÜV and Minister Prof. Pinkwart in Kreuztal. This marked the return of RWTÜV to the region of its founding site in Siegen.

We are still overwhelmed by the great feedback, are happy about all the newly gained contacts and look forward to the future with new cooperations. Congratulations to all winning teams and RWTÜV!

Foundation of House of Plasma GmbH

There was something to celebrate 🎉

The year 2022 starts with a big step for us: This week, the kick-off for our company happened! We spent two and a half hours at the notary and then signed the certificate of incorporation. The House of Plasma GmbH is now officially in foundation!
We are proud to have already come this far and look forward to everything that is coming from now on!

We thank all those who support us on our way!

New project: EXIST Research Transfer

In January, we applied for an EXIST research transfer funding program. Here, especially development-intensive start-up projects are funded – and of course we have a lot of plans! We are very pleased to have started the funding phase on November 01, 2021. Over the next year and a half, the focus will be on simplifying the hardware and making it process-stable. In addition, the focus will be on process-oriented development suitable for industrial use. We are extremely pleased

The House of Plasma project is funded by the German Federal Ministry for Economic Affairs and Climate Protection (formerly the Ministry for Economic Affairs and Energy) and the European Social Fund as part of the EXIST program.

High-Tech.NRW Accelerator finished with demo day

After ten weeks, the high-tech.NRW accelerator ended on Friday with a demo day. All 12 start-ups were once again able to present their final pitches to almost 100 participants*.

The Accelerator was a great success for House of Plasma. We were able to consult on many strategic questions and to adjust our own planning. This includes e.g. the business planning concerning market entry strategies and the financing concept. Technical components, IP management and sales were also further developed with the help of many mentors. In particular, the industrial know-how of the program and the technical expertise for the market helped enormously. The team with Maria, Geoffrey and Moritz would like to thank the organizers for the great and continuing cooperation!

This was our pitch:

Started founding competition
