After two successfully organised Acceleration Processes and selection of 90 projects, the Block.IS Project runs the specially curated third Open Call!
Ninety startups have entered the 1st or the 2nd INNOVATE Phase. After the INNOVATE Phases completion, following technical evaluation, pitching and filtering process assisted by external experts, 46 projects (more than 50%) entered the EXPERIMENT Phase #1 and #2 and finally, 20 have entered the COMMERCIALISE phase.
The Block.IS Acceleration Process #3 aims to provide a second chance to the projects that have completed successfully the INNOVATE Phase of either Acceleration Process #1 or #2, but did not manage to enter EXPERIMENT Phase #1 or #2, mainly due to budget constraints.
Under this viewpoint, Block.IS introduces the EXPERIMENT Phase #3, which aims to select among them, 5 projects with maximum commercial/impact potential and provide to each one of them acceleration services and a voucher of €12.000 as financial support to run the EXPERIMENT and enter the market. Moreover, the project that will manage to show the maximum market potential and impact at the European level will receive an additional prize of at least €6.000!
Submission to the Open Call of the Acceleration Programme #3 are enabled on the 06th of August 2021 and will end on the 2nd of September 2021 at 17:00 CEST (Brussels time).
