BoostUp is a continuation of an activity from the previous year. It operated in 2020 under the name “20170 – Business Creation Competition” and ran in each of the five CLCs and HQ, with a Grand Final event attended by more than 1,000 participants. It allowed engagement with 180 companies across all three Business Creation segments – Create, Accelerate and Transform.
Regional Winners were given a Busines Creation services package, while Grand Final winners also shared in €120,000 in financial prizes, on top of the services package. In 2021, BoostUp will be executed in thematic events: Tech / Green / Corporates / RIS countries. The objective is to engage strongly with the business ecosystem, stimulating and reinforcing cooperation and competition around major challenges. We support a large set of companies with Business Creation services (coaching, mentoring, connections to clients or network partners). In addition to those services, we will offer prizes (subgranting) to the best of supported companies.
