Dedicated to OpenData and SmartCities

Speed UP! Europe FIWARE Accelerator facilitates the Special Edition of the BootCamp in Hamburg. The event is dedicated to OpenData and SmartCities, and helps to prepare for the Open Call for 100 Teams in 2015, grants €50k per Team.

Are you a startup or small business with a bright idea for a new app or service? You are talented in design, you are a good marketer or networker? Want to get your hands on the tools to make that a reality – or the chance for a share of €80 million to get you started? If so, we have a great
opportunity for you!
Whether it’s smart cities or the internet of things – there are many great innovative ideas and apps out there. But many of them rely on the same “generic” enablers, basic building blocks from which you can create great things.

And this is where we can help. FIWARE is a “toolbox” making all those building blocks available to use and innovate with, open, fast, reusable, and reliable. Without the risk of getting “locked in” or dependent on one supplier. Further, we will connect you to bright ideas and success stories, patterns and templates for using Data for Good!
So you don’t have to worry about fixing basic problems that others have already solved, but can focus on developing the specific of your bright idea. And you can try all these out at the “FI-Lab”. (All part of our Public-Private Partnership on the Future Internet and of our commitment to helping EU entrepreneurs startup in Europe, and stay in Europe).

Many apps have already been built using these tools – from warning about earthquakes to helping taxi drivers or save the waste of food. But we know the building blocks are not enough – you need the resources to help you see your idea through. Speed UP! Europe FIWARE Accelerator in Hamburg also offers business support, mentoring and the chance to network and share with your peers. And from January 2015 there will be €50k per Team available for around 1300 small businesses and web entrepreneurs using those FIWARE tools. (Apply Deadline 10.12.2014)

If you’re interested in then try out some of our tools at the FI-WARE portal – and keep an eye out here for your chance to grab a share of €80 million!
Please note, we will organize a TechCamp 1.-2.10.2014, same place, to get familiar with the technology in a 24 hours run. This Camp is for Web-Designers and Developers, and independent, but extremely useful and highly recommend for the Developer Category Ticket, to participate in the following Weekend.

Come to meet the FIWARE Network and present your idea!
