EIT Jumpstarter is a selective European Union program for early-stage startups that helps them turn their ideas into sustainable companies. During the Grand Final live event on November 29th, 2022, in Cracow, Poland, the teams participating in a several-months business-oriented educational program will compete for EUR 10,000. The jury assessing the finalists will consist of European investors and sector-oriented experts.
The teams that will share their ideas will represent seven categories: healthcare, food, raw materials, energy, manufacturing, urban mobility and New European Bauhaus. A total of 42 innovative startups from all over Europe will participate in this event.
A women-oriented panel will be held during the conference as well. „Women entrepreneurs in EIT Jumpstarter” will feature three successful women leaders who developed a product or service idea in the EIT Jumpstarter and successfully overcame challenges in a predominantly masculine world. The entrepreneurs will discuss the products or services that their startups offer, as well as the challenges they face in the startup ecosystem. They will also provide advice to women peers.
The panel will also include three motivational speeches by experts from the EIT Jumpstarter Alumni Community to inspire the audience and give attendees the confidence to do their business better or improve themselves.
Participating countries in the program are Bulgaria, the Czech Republic, Estonia, Greece, Hungary, Italy, Latvia, Lithuania, Malta, Montenegro, Poland, Portugal, North Macedonia, Romania, Serbia, Slovakia, Slovenia, Spain, Sweden, and Turkey.
The program aims to create a sustainable impact in the Central-Eastern and Southern-European Regions by boosting innovation and entrepreneurship.
