Drawing on the support provided previously to both startups -through acceleration services- and to public players and private companies -through trainings and ideation workshops-, matching labs will allow for matchmaking between startups and their potential clients.
Matching labs will be organized in each of the five countries to develop specific cases in a logic of procurement.
The sessions will include:
- knowledge transfer and best practices to approach public/private procurement
- laboratories for concept viability and blockchain-based solutions ideation
- presentation to potential customers
Results emerging from the Matching labs will be presented by the startups through pitching sessions in front of an audience of public and private organisations involved in the matching labs, investors, innovation stakeholders, blockchain experts.
The goal of matchings labs is to ensure reciprocal exchange between startups and public/private partners and concrete follow-up collaborations.
