Call for participation: DISRUPT ME

07 August 2019 South Israel News EIT Food Projects Entrepreneurship DISRUPT ME: a programme for European corporations to engage with disruptive Israeli startups - 2019

Call for participation: DISRUPT ME

This programme gives access to fresh, adoptable Israeli technologies which can be a unique ‘leg up’ in Europe.  In the past 15 years Israel became home to thousands of hi-tech startups focusing on innovation and global technology development. However, when it comes to go-to-market strategy Israeli companies mostly skip Europe and go directly to the US market. This is a significant lost opportunity for European corporations who could utilize these fresh technologies.

The main goals of ‘Disrupt Me’ is to enable and enhance commercial collaboration and co-creation between Israeli startups and technologies and the EIT innovation communities. This includes bringing Israeli disruptive technologies in the fields of Health, Food, Urban mobility and Climate to European mid-size companies that are looking for disruption as well as providing them with best practices and knowledge of corporate innovation.

The programme is designed by the EIT Hub Tel Aviv, an initiative of EIT and its innovation communities, namely EIT Health, EIT Climate-KIC, EIT Food and EIT Urban Mobility with the goal of inspiring and motivating technical cooperation and co-creation between European corporates and Israeli startups.

The call for application closes on September 6, 2019. All details can be found in the attached document.
