  • “Half and Half” track allows participants to bring their own challenges and use one EDI data set and one external data set to solve it.
  • “Free Choice” track allows applicants to choose their own challenge, data provider and data sets.

Each successful applicant will receive up to €100,000 in funding dependant on the maturity of the idea being developed and different KPIs. In addition, there will be training on state-of-the-art Big Data tools and mentorship, connections with other startups in the industry and access to data providers to develop the product. Training on soft skills and fundraising will also be offered to successful applicants and your startup will be featured as a part of the Big Data Value PPP European initiative and receive a great deal of visibility as a result. The deadline for this open call is 17th June 2020.
