The aim of the project ” EIT+ Accelerator of innovative companies with hybrid industry profile” to identify promoters of innovative solutions and encourage them to start a business based on unique know-how/patents from several areas (BIO, NANO, IT, ENERGY) and the development of this activity through the establishment and recapitalization of the newly established companies.
Who are we looking for?
Nests of Innovation – teams/individuals having the ability to generate innovative ideas in a “continuous” way, having a desire to participate in the process of developing technologies based on the innovative idea and interested in the success of market commercialization.
Why we are looking for Nests of Innovation, not individual innovative ideas?
Because a single innovative idea can become obsolete and unattractive on the market or in terms of technology after its incubation period. What is needed then is the fundamental modification or other new innovative idea.
Project assumptions and principles of cooperation
WRC EIT + in the final stage of incubation invests in approximately 10 technology companies. The result of the capital support of originators of selected projects will be the reduction of the risk for venture capital investors or market investors (NewConnect, NASDAQ) at a later stage of development. EIT + WRC envisages the output of capital with technology companies after several years of their establishment (5-7 years). Funds obtained in this way will be invested in new projects.
max. the value of share of EIT + WRC in the company: EUR 200,000 (EU regulations – the de minimis rule)
a majority stake in the private equity company
mandatory contribution to the originators in the form of intangible and legal assets and cash share
allowable stages of capital entry
Accelerator project is funded under the Innovative Economy Operational Programme, Measure 3.1 “Initiating innovative activities”.
