Fostering Connections Between Start-ups and Corporations for a more Innovative and Sustainable Industry

On April 20, EIT Manufacturing and Acció held the Access to Tech event, which brought together 9 start-ups with innovative technologies from EIT Manufacturing’s pipeline and more than 30 industrial companies. The result: More than 85 meetings scheduled!

In today’s rapidly changing business landscape, it is becoming increasingly important for companies to embrace new technologies and ideas to remain competitive. Start-ups with their disruptive ideas are often at the forefront of this technological revolution. That is why EIT Manufacturing and Acció co-organised the Access to Tech event: To provide a unique opportunity for start-ups from EIT Manufacturing’s pipeline to showcase their technologies and connect with larger corporations.

But why are these connections so important? For one, start-ups often have fresh and innovative ideas that can help to revolutionise the way larger corporations operate. By connecting with start-ups, larger corporations can stay ahead of the curve and remain competitive in their respective industries.

Start-ups also stand to gain a lot from these connections. By getting in touch with larger corporations, start-ups can obtain access to resources and markets that may have been previously out of reach. Additionally, these connections can help to validate the technologies and ideas that start-ups are working on

Fostering connections between start-ups and corporations is a key commitment of EIT Manufacturing. Activities like the Access to Tech event show our dedication to creating a more competitive and sustainable European manufacturing industry. We look forward to seeing the positive impact of these connections in the future and will continue to support initiatives that promote cooperation and innovation within the manufacturing sector.
