The European Internet Forum (EIT) has launched the EIT Digital Challenge – its annual Europe-wide call for the most innovative start-ups in digital technology ready to scale up and enter the EIT Digital Accelerator. Applications are welcome in five categories: Digital Industry, Digital Cities, Digital Well-being, Digital Infrastructure and Digital Finance. The EIT Digital Accelerator is a group of experienced business developers from Europe and the USA. Since 2012 they have supported more than 200 startups and helped them access new markets and raise more than 67 million euros in investment. The 3 best teams in each category will gain access to EIT’s pan-European innovation network with more than 130 partners and have a chance to join the EIT Digital Accelerator for a full year. The winners in each category will receive a 50 000 euros cash prize. The application deadline is 15 July 2016.
