Sebastian Alamillo-Falkenberg

Sebastian started his career by founding a chemistry-based cleantech start-up out of the University of Waterloo. Following the company’s exit, he turned his attention to bridging the gap between the research/incubation stages and commercialization for deep-tech companies. As the leader of KPM-Accelerate, he works to accelerate chemical technology start-ups by integrating technical development, at the lab and pilot scale, with business strategy and financial modelling. His other roles as VC investor, board member, business architect, and ecosystem enabler allow him to help deep-tech start-ups, at any stage, bring the most impactful solutions to the market. Now, as the Executive Director of the Reaction Hub, he is leading the development and growth of a national commercialization hub focused on the technical development, scale-up, and piloting of chemical technologies that have the power to fight climate change and our global supply chain challenges.  “It’s chemistry that got us into this climate mess, and now, chemistry has the opportunity to get us out.”
