Ten inspiring deep tech scaleups have come out on top in the EIT Digital Challenge 2019 in Brussels. They will share a prize pot of €750k and enter the EIT Digital Accelerator, a World Top Public Business Accelerator. The 10 winners were chosen from 25 finalists across five categories, reflecting EIT Digital’s strategic focus areas: Digital Tech, Digital Cities, Digital Industry, Digital Wellbeing and Digital Finance.
“This is not your usual competition where just the winners count,” explained Chahab Nastar, Chief Innovation Officer at EIT Digital. “The 25 finalists have been carefully selected; they are all winners in the sense that they all have evidence of growth potential. We now welcome them into the EIT Digital Accelerator and will give them dedicated pan European support for customer acquisition and fundraising. We want them to become large dominant companies in their respective markets”.
