Raw Materials Pan-European start-up accelerator programme
EIT RawMaterials Accelerator programme provides tailored support for start-ups to fast-track their business, by connecting start-ups with the world’s largest innovation community in the raw materials sector.
The support provided in 3 phases consists of both group work, individual coaching as well as anchoring start-ups in their local and national ecosystems while at the same time opening up introductions on a Pan-European level to partners of the EIT RawMaterials Innovation Community. The combination of local anchoring and Pan-European opportunities are envisaged to increase the success rate and market opportunities of the selected start-ups.
