Financed under the Horizon 2020 framework as part of the Startup Europe initiative of the European Commission, the DeepTech4Good project is committed to help DeepTech start-ups accelerate their development and scale up their business across Europe. Organized by the project partners secpho and i2CAT, DeepTech4Good#Barcelona marked the end of a successful series of events held by the DeepTech4Good consortium in Paris, Stuttgart and Graz.
On 25th April 2019 26 start-ups from 4 European countries had the chance to present their companies at 2 pitching sessions held at Pier01 in Barcelona, Spain. During the morning session, selected start-ups responded to the challenges provided by corporates such as Continental, Standard Profil, Nissan, Global Omnium and Correos. In the afternoon, participants took the stage to pitch their companies in front a panel of European investors.
The most promising start-ups were awarded access to an acceleration programme aimed at scaling up the future “Deep Tech unicorns” in Europe. The hosts of DT4G#Barcelona, Sabine Runge (secpho) and Marc Vicente (i2CAT), handed out the awards to the 8 winning start-ups working in 4 areas:
By accessing to an European Network and collaborating with experts, these start-ups will be supported in their future scale-up process.
