Get to know the EDI startups and their products/services being developed at each stage of the incubation programme. See who made it through from the Explore stage (36 startups), to the Experiment stage (18 startups), and watch out for the announcement of the final Evolve stage (9 startups) later in the programme!
The first stage of incubation helps the chosen startups clearly define their concept, receive training on Big Data technologies and examine the data sets, before the grand finale: the Datathon held in October 2020, Berlin.
Here the teams came together to meet the corporates and refine their first mock-ups. The final “demolition pitch” contest was judged by an expert jury, and 18 lucky startups were chosen to pass to the next phase.

In the second stage of incubation, startups will create a MVP (minimum viable product) to launch into the market.
The startups will be supported over 4 months (November 2020 – February 2021) with dedicated coaches and mentors, a technical infrastructure with a set of tools ready to be used, training modules on Big Data and personalized business development support. The top startups with major market potential will be selected to pass to the last phase of incubation.
The final stage is dedicated to building solid partnerships and atracting real investment opportunities.
The startups will attend major events to promote their products, for two months. The projects will be encouraged to gain enough traction for next investment phase in terms of sales, prospects, users, markets and customers.
