STARTUP 3 will scout for top founding teams to identify (uptake) breakthrough innovations from deep tech verticals (i.e. built on tangible scientific discoveries or engineering/ technical advances). Then STARTUP3 will help them fine tune (upgrade) their technologies/ business models and align their value proposition to the actual market demand (the so-called Key Performance Areas – KPAs). Finally, STARTUP3 will bring together top deep tech startups/ SMEs and the most prominent corporate innovators – CVC arms, incubators and accelerators, and innovation labs (facilitated by clusters and digital innovations hubs – DIHs) with the aim of catalysing productive interaction (upscale). This catalysation is rooted towards networking of deep-tech focused players (collaborative ecosystems and open innovation), raising understanding of the benefits of head spinning deep-tech innovation, smart take off and soft-landing support.
