Two German start-ups, Stryza from Berlin and Xentara from Munich, made it to the 2022 edition of the BoostUp! start-up competition. They were selected as two of the eight winners out of 20 finalists presenting their solutions in Athens as part of the Boost!Up Grand Final. Their prize: two months of support from EIT Manufacturing Central’s Business Creation Team.
They will be supported in three ways: Firstly, they will be put in direct contact with relevant industry customers and potential investors to find opportunities to grow their businesses. Secondly, they are offered participation in events that fit their field of activity. Last, but not least, they are offered to participate in challenges that EIT Manufacturing is working on with industry partners and present their innovative solutions.
“When a partner from industry has a challenge from the production environment which we help them to solve, we usually recommend a strategically fitting variety of start-ups that could provide a solution. We will include Stryza and Xentara into the portfolio of start-ups that have a proven industrial track record,” explains Silvia Grätz, Business Creation Manager from EIT Manufacturing Central.
