BlockStart - Call for end-user SMEs
BlockStart is a European partnership program looking for startups and SMEs – from all over the EU and H2020 associated countries – working with blockchain and other DLTs. Its main objective is to facilitate goal-oriented, business-focused, and mutually beneficial partnerships between DLT/blockchain solution providers and end-users SMEs.
BlockStart is launching the first out of three Open Calls for applications in fintech, ICT and retail. This 3-stage intensive mentor-led program starts with the Ideation Kick-off, after which the most successful blockchain/DLT solution providers are admitted to a 4 months Prototype phase aimed at supporting the product/market fit. Finally, during the Pilot phase (2 months), startups/SMEs working with blockchain and other DLTs will have a unique opportunity to validate their solutions by piloting their innovations with end-users.
Apart from mentoring, training and networking opportunities, each DLT developer may receive up to €20,000, while SME adopters may receive €4.500.
BlockStart is run by Bright Pixel, CIVITTA and F6S, and is funded by the EU H2020 programme for Research and Innovation under Grant Agreement 828853.
