Service description

The aim is to create matchmaking events with open acceleration programme. In the first phase, we will contact business associations, and companies well established in the market, to identify problems they would like to solve and innovation solutions they are looking for in the market. We will also contact with strartup’s, entrepreneurs, and with the academy, trying to identify entrepreneurs interested in trying to solve problems that may arise in the industry through innovation processes. In the second phase of the programme, we will group the challenges identified by type of technology needed and we will hold meetings between the companies that have presented challenges and the entrepreneurs who have shown an interest in tackling these challenges and who have knowledge of the technologies needed. The objective of these events is to stimulate the emergence of new products with a high potential for market acceptance, since they will be created from scratch in collaboration with their potential customers.
