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.
In 2022, EIT Manufacturing held the BoostUp! 2022 competition.
The competition, launched on 13 June 2022, was open to startups that had shown the usefulness of their solution through cooperation with a large manufacturing corporation, either by means of a pilot or a proof-of-concept project demonstrating the validity of their technology. The competition was specifically targeting startups with solutions that fall within one of EIT Manufacturing’s flagships.
Up to eight (8) startups received a cash prize of €20,000 to accelerate the scaling of their solution. In addition, a €5,000 cash prize was awarded to the top ranked startup coming from a RIS country or region and the top ranked female led startup.
