A SpinLab Incubator
RootCamp - A SpinLab Incubator - is an intra- and entrepreneurial incubator that catalyzes innovation within the agriculture and food industry. Our mission is to solve society’s deepest food challenges at the root, combining startup programs and corporate innovation.
It was initiated by the SpinLab Accelerator and K+S, a worldwide player in the fertilizer and salt field. The incubator is located in the heart of Hannover, the capital of the German federal state Lower Saxony and a center of the agriculture and food industry. Seed to Series B startups from all over the world are welcomed to join different programs, which last from 3 to 12 months. To seize growth opportunities, teams get unique access to coaching, mentoring, expert knowledge and the network of corporates, investors and other entrepreneurs. In addition, the program fuels the development of ideas into scalable business or technology implementation for later stage startups by a non-equity grant.
