EIT Digital Challenge 2019
The EIT Digital Challenge takes place for the 6th consecutive year and is again looking for the most innovative European digital tech startups to help them grow internationally by connecting them to potential customers and/or investors. Startups in growth stage (scaleups) can apply in five categories: Digital Tech, Digital Industry, Digital Cities, Digital Wellbeing, and Digital Finance. The winners will gain international growth support totaling €750,000 in cash and in-kind.
What’s in it for me?
25 companies will be invited to an exclusive event in Brussels to pitch in front of expert juries. The two best companies per category will gain 12 months support to scale up their business. The growth support is provided by the EIT Digital Accelerator team (no equity taken, no physical presence needed). On top of that, the first prize winner in each category receives a cash prize of €50,000 (no strings attached).
And last but not least: finalists and winners will a gain a lot of international visibility!
Who can apply?
Growth stage startups (scaleups) based in Europe (incl. associated H2020 countries), with a min. annual revenue of €300.000 or min. €2 million in equity investment, that are max 10 years old.
