Funding is one of the most critical factors in the success of any startup. It provides the necessary resources to turn an idea into a viable business, and it is crucially needed to scale it up. In the lecture “From idea to start-up”, organized during the Blended Intensive Programm of the YTIC - the Young Talents International Conference - Dóra Marosvölgyi from the EIT Jumpstarter and Malgorzata Goraczek, project coordinator of the EIT HEI E.I.N.S. project, presented insights into EIT funding possibilities.
The lecture allowed the numerous international young talents to get an overview about EIT - the European Institute of Innovation & Technology, to understand how to join the EIT Community and how to get access to the wide range of EIT education, business creation and innovation EIT funding opportunities.
After these insights into the wide EIT Community, the EIT Jumpstarter was presented. The EIT Jumpstarter is a unique EIT start-up program which aims to support idea-holders to turn their ideas into business. The program offers access to the broad and creative EIT community, advanced know-how, best-in-class expert trainers and mentors. It helps innovators and entrepreneurs to build a viable business model around their innovative product or service idea, validate it and if their business idea is proven to be sustainable, they are encouraged to register their company.
