Digital International Bootcamp

Within the EIT Climate-KIC accelerator model, bootcamps are an important mean to strengthen the start-ups’ sustainable business models and to develop the international cleantech start-up-community.
A common theme throughout the bootcamps is the importance of knowledge creation through collaborative work.

17th – 18th September 2020

This year, the International Boot Camp (IBC) of the EIT Climate-KIC RIS Accelerator will take place from the 08th until the 10th of May 2019 at Provadis Hochschule in Frankfurt.

In total, we expect 130 participants from 53 different start-ups from 11 Regional Innovation Scheme (RIS) countries including Bulgaria, Croatia, Cyprus, Estonia, Greece, Latvia, Lithuania, Portugal, Romania, Serbia and Slovenia.

A common theme throughout the IBC is the importance of knowledge creation through collaborative work. Therefore, the digital IBC is dedicated to create a pan-European start-up community, unfold synergies between the RIS start-ups and to create a joint spirit at the beginning of the programme. The participating start-ups will learn how to further define and validate their sustainable business models and how to get investor ready to scale-up their promising solutions.

The Provadis Hochschule is located in Frankfurt, which is a central hub for international companies from various industries and in particular from the financial, manufacturing and chemical industries. In addition to the already traditional and valuable peer2peer-matchmaking, we open the participating start-ups to contact with companies and potential investors. The Center for Industry and Sustainability at Provadis Hochschule connects RIS start-ups with relevant stakeholders who could help them to successfully expand their business. Conversely, the corporates can be inspired by how new solutions to relevant issues could look like in the first place or in a different way. Learning from each other is a two-way street.
