The Digital Innovation Challenge invites SMEs and startups to shape a concept for a service or solution that could be integrated into their company’s business offer, co-create with coaches, pitch their idea at the award ceremony, win up to EUR 50 000 and stand out at European level. The solutions need to be based on the European Commission’s open and reusable solutions.
SMEs and start-ups can win up to EUR 50.000 for the first place, with prices for the second and third place being at EUR 20.000 and EUR 10.000 respectively.
Through this challenge, the European Commission aims to experiment with new ways for engaging with SMEs and start-ups to re-imagine how open and reusable solutions are created and promoted, stimulate awareness and, ultimately, increase their adoption.
After an eligibility and evaluation screening of the applications, we are glad to announce the ten shortlisted candidates:
- Business Reporting Advisory Group
- Clever Books
- Latitudo 40
- T Mining
- Parity Platform
The journey will continue for these ten shortlisted candidates in a co-creation bootcamp, where they will pitch their ideas and work with coaches to refine their solutions.
