What is EDI?
EDI is an incubation programme run by 20+ partners across Europe.
It gives the most innovative “Big Data” startups the opportunity to tackle real world challenges set by corporates across Europe, such as improving road safety in Barcelona or predicting fraudulent transactions in supermarkets.
This second year programme has evolved from the first, in that startups have been able to apply for EDI via two new tracks. In addition to choosing the challenges set by the EDI data providers, startups have been able to also either propose additional external data to solve said challenges or create their own challenge from scratch with their own data provider. These new options have given the startups more flexibility and freedom to create the most impactful big data innovations.
Benefits of the programme include up to €100k in equity-free funding, mentoring, workshops, access to a free cloud environment, and the chance to connect with and be recognised by major European organizations.
