Open Calls for Startups & SMEs
The Block.IS invites all SMEs that have successfully completed the Block.IS Innovation Phase of either Open Call #1 or #2 but did not enter the relevant Experiment Phase to submit a proposal to the Block.IS Acceleration Process #3!
In the course of the last two years, Block.IS has organised two acceleration processes to attract, select and fund the best of the best SMEs to generate blockchain-based products, processes, and business models with strong market potential in the sectors of agri-food, logistics, and finance. After successfully conducting two Open Calls (Acceleration Process #1 and #2), the third Open Call aims to provide a boost to those projects that have successfully completed the INNOVATE phase of either Acceleration Process #1 or #2. Those are the projects that did not manage to enter EXPERIMENT Phase #1 or #2 mainly due to budget constraints. For this purpose, the Block.IS consortium introduces EXPERIMENT Phase #3!
The third Open Call brings a second chance!
The EXPERIMENT Phase #3, aims to select 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!
The F6S platform (https://www.f6s.com/block.is) will be the entry point for all proposals’ submission to Block.IS 3rd Acceleration Process. Submissions received by any other channel will be automatically discarded. Submission to the Open Call of the Acceleration Programme #3 will end on the 2nd of September 2021 at 17:00 CEST (Brussels time).
IMPORTANT: The deadline for the Cluster Mission application is the 2nd of September 2021, 17:00 CEST (Brussels Time).
