From vision to business, meet YOUR opportunities powered by FIWARE partners

June 12, 2023 @ 4:00 pm4:40 pm CEST

From vision to business, meet YOUR opportunities powered by FIWARE partners
How to do business, how to learn, how to get funding, how to reach out to the market?

If you feel like eating a delicious sacher tort and hearing how to improve your business, funding opportunities, learn what accelerators and DIHs offer, what you can learn about new technologies, discover all the “tips and tricks’ from investors and key players. This is the session for you!

There are academic researchers who, at some point in their careers, decide to jump into business lines and create their own startup. Yes, but how to do it? They have excellent technical knowledge, but they do not know about the rest of the complexities of the market. What organisations can teach digital marketing and support in creating a business model? And what is the funding?

Some SMEs would like to create fast solutions for a market. But where do they start? What are the technologies to accelerate the development of smart solutions? How can they integrate their solution without destroying what they have already implemented? Can Accelerators, or DIHs help with this?

Accelerators are critical in supporting companies to achieve multiple goals: generating new business relationships, accelerating skills development, growing their knowledge network, creating valuable relationships, and innovative projects thanks to funding support. This session will answer all these questions with top speakers, experts in funding and people with the right key to make your business a success!!
