The BoostUp! competition series seeks to identify and support promising startups focused on scaling their solutions to solve today’s most pressing manufacturing challenges. In addition to the competition, BoostUp! events seek to convene investors, policymakers, startups, corporates, and key industrial players to discuss some of the most topical issues within the manufacturing domain.
During 2021, EIT Manufacturing held two editions of its BoostUp! competition series.
BoostUp! BRIDGE was held in October 2021 as part of WMF’s World Manufacturing Week. It focused on building “bridges” for the technologies of startups to be implemented within the corporate industrial challenges submitted by several of our partners. The winning startups will have the opportunity to integrate their solutions with the participating corporates; in addition, they will receive cash prizes of up to €50k and “growth packages” of support services.
