innovation factory - virtual matchmaking event

Within the context of THE NEXT SOCIETY, Berytech runs a 4-month acceleration programme for researchers, postgraduates, engineers and technicians willing to develop a start-up based on a research project: the Innovation Factory: From Research to Market programme.

A virtual matchmaking event will take place on the 27th of May and will be dedicated to the seven (7) final teams selected by a regional jury committee to pitch their project in front of an audience of partners, industry experts, business professionals and investors from the Mediterranean region, getting valuable feedback and building potential collaboration opportunities

The selected teams will benefit from the 4-month incubation support from Berytech and partners including technical and business assistance. One team will be selected for a Soft-landing opportunity to get short-term business and collaboration support from a European partner.
