ABC Accelerator and EIT Digital invite you to Meet & Match – events that will connect the best scaleup startups from South East Europe and European corporations!
European corporations are increasingly looking for new opportunities to develop and access new markets through strategic investments into external startup companies.
Meet&Match with at least 30 pre-selected late-stage & scaleup startups from South East Europe (SEE). We will organise 4 national events (Osijek, Belgrade, Sarajevo and Mostar) and the final Regional event in Ljubljana where the best scaleup startups from the whole region will present themselves.
The SEE region was historically strong in R&D, but has lagged in the commercialization of local innovations. Recently, though, startups are becoming increasingly successful, and they have received better and better support from a quickly growing support ecosystem. Regional leaders such as Outfit7, Bellabeat, Rimac Automobili, Celtra, and 4thOffi ce show the way for entrepreneurs to build a global business.
ABC Accelerator works on this pipeline of high growth potential companies, but lacks investment capacity to continue to support them during their scale-up. EIT Digital can facilitate their internationalization in the EU, but seeks active support from corporations.
The goal of Meet & Match events is to find the hidden jewels and help them reach their potential by establishing partnerships and business collaborations to the EU markets and their corporations.
