Are you the next top innovation team offering radically sustainable products or services in the raw materials sector? Accelerate your solution to the market, apply for the RawMaterials Accelerator!
The RM Accelerator programme for start-ups comprises 3 Phases (Invent, Build, Grow). There are stage gates between each of the phases, where start-ups need to be approved for entering the next phase. Each phase has specific objectives, process, funding and timeline. The support provided in each Phase consists of both group work, individual coaching as well as anchoring start-ups in their local and national ecosystems while at the same time opening up introductions on a Pan-European level to partners of the EIT RawMaterials Innovation Community. The combination of local anchoring and Pan-European opportunities is envisaged to increase the success rate and market opportunities of the selected Start-ups.
The RawMaterials Accelerator is novel because it can make an introduction to customers in the EIT RawMaterials partner network who are willing to adopt innovations; and, it connects local and national ecosystems to the Pan-European network of a pilot and test infrastructure facilities as well as potential customers. We also supply grant funding to enable your team to participate in the RM Accelerator.
The RM Accelerator aims to develop start-ups so that they can rapidly become suppliers to, and perhaps future partners of, the EIT RawMaterials network.
