The first group of Data Pitch startups are embarking on the accelerator programme in February and will be introducing their ideas at the Data Pitch Kick Off event in London on Thursday 1st February 2018.

Eighteen companies have been selected from 142 applicants for the first open call, and will receive mentoring, funding and support over a six-month period, working with major data providers including Deutsche Bahn, Sonae, UniServ GMBH and Spazio Dati to provide innovative solutions to present day challenges.

By bringing together large multinational companies and agile startups, Data Pitch is creating a new ecosystem of innovators across Europe, where collaboration and data sharing can help to solve problems that would otherwise be impossible.

The first successful Data Pitch cohort includes companies from the UK, Italy, Germany, Estonia, Denmark, France, Spain, Portugal, Lithuania and the Netherlands.  Some of their exciting and diverse ideas include novel solutions in healthcare, transport, tourism, manufacturing and retail.

They will be revealed for the first time at the event in front of an audience of key stakeholders from the EU startup ecosystem, when each company will deliver a short pitch about their project, and we will be featuring full profiles of all the startups and their ideas after the launch.
