What does EIT offer
The INCUBATE! activity line offers support for not-yet entrepreneurs or scientists wanting to develop start-ups. Activities include innovation training and assistance with initiatives like Launchlab, or other Bootcamp programmes that help entrepreneurs create a business plan out of an initial idea or research project.
The VALIDATE! line places emphasis on validating products and services. Our network of Living Labs and Test Beds provides entrepreneurs the means to test products throughout the value chain. Other activities allow entrepreneurs to gain understanding in local/regional regulatory and reimbursement schemes and have access to market experts.
SCALE! activities focus on more mature start-ups and SMEs, to facilitate access to tools and networks for financing and market expansion. The European Health Catapult programme awards funding to companies with the best business plans and provides training in pitching and competitiveness. Our GoGlobal Programme supports European ventures so that they can expand beyond Europe’s borders to the U.S., China and Brazil.
