The EIT Jumpstarter Grand Final will be held virtually on 25 November 2020 starting at 1 pm (CET) with the keynote speech of Martin Kern, EIT Director.
EIT Jumpstarter is the flagship programme of the Cross-KIC cooperation within the Regional Innovation Scheme (EIT RIS). EIT Jumpstarter, recognised as the 2019 Best Association Training Initiative in Europe, is one of the widest cross-industrial programmes designed for early-stage innovators who want to gain traction and jumpstart their business.
The fourth edition was organised in collaboration with six knowledge and innovation communities: EIT Health, EIT Food, EIT RawMaterials, EIT InnoEnergy, EIT Urban Mobility and EIT Manufacturing, initiated and funded by the European Institute of Innovation and Technology (EIT).
The programme has a special focus on Central-Eastern and Southern European talents who want to validate their business concept, develop a business plan and pitch their ideas to potential future investors. Selected candidates receive support from the best-in-class trainers and mentors and have a chance to win up to EUR 10 000.
EIT Jumpstarter Programme targets scientific project teams, innovators, scientists, PhD students, or Master’s students in healthcare, agri-food, raw materials, sustainable energy, urban mobility and manufacturing.
This year, 18 EIT Urban Mobility Jumpstarter teams were invited to participate in this initiative and the best six groups will pitch in front of a jury in the Grand Final.
