Deep tech on display: scaleups and corporates come together to spring innovation and business

On 3-4 April, ISCLEANAIR, along with over 100 companies funded by the European Innovation Council participated in a matchmaking event at the InQbet Accelerator in Brussels with large corporates and open innovation experts. 

Hosted by P&G and The Growcery, participants also included top representatives from Cargill, Port of Antwerp, bpost, Nokia, Umicore, ING and Solvay and twenty other big corporations.

The event tackled important topics geared toward the scaleup community, including the different ways corporates in different sectors approach open innovation and important considerations scaleups should expect when partnering with larger corporations to push their products to market.

For the scaleups, it was an important occasion to share their vision with an audience of experts and corporate insiders. A total of 103 entrepreneurs, coming from 25 countries, participated in 14 pitching sessions and more than 600 business meetings – a record figure for the EIC Corporate Days.
