Block.IS 3rd Open Call – Top 5 Startups!

After two successfully organized Acceleration Processes and selection of 90 projects, the Block.IS Project ran the specially curated third Open Call!

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.

As in the previous events, the startups operate in the domain of agrifood, logistics and fintech. Following the exciting pitching event and having the chance to catch up with the innovators and their solutions, Block.IS jury had the task of selecting 5 projects with maximum commercial/impact potential. Each of the Top 5 will be provided with acceleration services and a voucher of €12.000 as financial support to run the EXPERIMENT and enter the market.

This third Open Call is with a twist – as the COVID-19 pandemic has greatly influenced both markets and SMEs and startups alike, Block.IS will provide additional support in the form of the additional prize of at least €6.000. This will be awarded to the project that will manage to show the maximum market potential and impact at the European level!

Block.IS thanks the jury Irena Pavlova, Pedro Roseiro, and Krishna Chandramouli,
