Scale up innovative business across the EU

No. 871877; Call: H2020-ICT-2019-2
Implementation period: 2019-12-01 – 2021-11-30

Startup incubators and science and technology parks play a significant role in helping startups in Europe to scale up. An Incubator is a set-up to reduce the chances of failure of an early stage start-up and they have a deep impact on start-up ecosystem and its stakeholders. Although incubators have an increasingly important role in supporting early stage companies with the basic needs of developing a company, they are consistently failing to provide services that are needed for companies to go global and scale up.

Following the support and initiative by European Commission, Scale-up Champions aims to connect different European deep-tech startup ecosystems and support cross-border activities to standardize the growth routes in Europe. And provides services that could be widely used among all incubators even after the lifetime of the Project.
