AMSilk among Technology Review's top 50 innovative firms

Aug '17
AMSilk GmbH, the industrial supplier of synthetic silk biopolymers from Germany, has been chosen by the German edition of MIT Technology Review as one of the 50 most innovative companies in the world. Now in its fourth year, the exclusive list honours companies that have achieved a technological breakthrough with their industry-changing products.

AMSilk was recognised for its bioengineered spider silk, a new material which opens completely new possibilities for applications throughout the medical, cosmetic and textile industries.

Together with AMSilk, among the 50 most innovative companies recognised this year are industry giants including the Chinese online-retail giant Alibaba, Amazon, Continental, Daimler, Microsoft, and Tesla.

As a first time honouree, AMSilk was named among the three finalists in the “Technology” category. The company will participate in the solemn prize awarding ceremony at the StartupNight in the Berlin Representation Office of Deutsche Telekom on September 8, 2017.

AMSilk CEO Jens Klein said, “Being honoured as one of the 50 most innovative companies in the world makes us very proud. This award shows that AMSilk’s synthetic silk is not only a highly innovative product, but that it has the potential to disrupt industries and provide substantial added value for our partners. We are looking forward to the prize awarding ceremony in Berlin and to the exchange of ideas with other innovation makers of the international business world.”

Robert Thielicke, editor-in-chief of Technology Review said, “Since its foundation, Technology Review has been looking for companies and people which move at the limit of the feasible. This method might be subjective to a certain extent. In this case, AMSilk would not have been considered although the company has achieved what has long been regarded as impossible: to learn from nature and produce the spider silk artificially. Now it is possible to produce incredibly robust, skin friendly, and at the same time, environmentally friendly clothes.” (GK)
