EDI has come to an end after 3 glorious years.
After 3 amazing years of incubating over 100 European Big Data Startups the final ever EDI Demo Day took place on 29 April. The online event, under the slogan “Disrupting the Disruptors” tackled one of the biggest questions, faced by big data startups: How to expect the unexpected and stay ahead of the challenges that are yet to come.Everyone was exhilarated to hear the top 9 Round 3 startups – adiutaByte, CreationLabsAI, HOPU, Amplify Analytix, IDWard, IN2, Divizend, Grama and IERP.ai present their solutions in front of over 150 people during the two-hour online event. The spirits were high and everyone was all smiles!
Hosts to the event were Start-up Ecosystem Expert André Dalichau from our partner etventure and VC expert and etventure Principal Qasim Abbasour. The guests also had the chance to hear VC and Investment Manager Klea Wenger from Swisscom Ventures.
During the closing remarks of the event André Dalichau shared some information about the sister project of EDI – REACH Incubator. The programme offers equity-free funding, opportunities for tech training and business mentoring and access to valuable data and challenges provided by industry leaders. REACH is currently seeking Data Providers and Digital Innovation Hubs to join its ranks for the next open call.
