Data Pitch is a EU-funded open innovation programme bringing together corporate and public-sector organisations that have data with startups and SMEs that work with data.
Creating a community
Startups and SMEs are working with corporates and public sector organisations to use shared data to build sustainable businesses that generate economic, social and environmental impact.
Within the six-months incubation programme, companies receive up to €100K equity-free funding, mentoring, business and data training, high-quality media, visibility at international events and introductions to investors.
Data Pitch ended on 31 December 2019.
