After the success of the two first editions, JEC World organises the third edition of Startup Booster, the leading start-up competition in composites, where ten start-ups will present their innovation in front of a jury of experts.

JEC Group launched Startup Booster programme in 2017 to get closer to the start-up world, to attract the new generation of composites entrepreneurs and put them at the forefront of the industry. The programme gives the floor to 10 start-ups, each of them having five minutes to present their innovation, on 12 March 2019, in front of a jury of experts from the composites industry.

These 10 start-ups will be also showcasing within the Startup Booster Village, during the three days, and will benefit from a dedicated programme, including workshops with Startup Booster Main Innovation Partners Airbus and Daimler, and Innovation Partner Altair.
