The next life of tyre components
Welcome to the second edition of NextLap.
A 4-month Acceleration program for startups and innovators to turn their ideas into scalable businesses.
Tyres should not become waste.
Focusing on circular solutions, NextLap aims to find the next life of tyres and their components – rubber, steel, and textile.
Join the mission to accelerate tyre circularity.
Who we are looking for
NextLap Accelerator is taking applications from entrepreneurial teams with bold product ideas as well as from startups with MVP and early customers. The purpose is to find innovative and scalable solutions that use rubber, textile, steel, or the whole tyre, designed to give these components a new life.
