EUROPEAN SCALEUP COMPETITION
The EIT Digital Challenge is an international pitching competition focused on deep tech scaleups – late stage startups – seeking to accelerate their growth. Deep tech companies create innovations that are built around unique, often protected or hard to reproduce technological or scientific advances. They have a strong research base and develop disruptive solutions that fuel the digital transformation.
In total, 25 scaleups in five categories will be selected to pitch their product or service in front of an international jury of corporates and investors at the final event in October. The two best companies per category will gain 12 months in the EIT Digital Accelerator worth €50,000 to scale up their business. On top of that, the first prize winner in each category receives a cash prize of €50,000.
