The FInish Accelerator is funding over 30 projects that are developing new business applications for agri-food, logistics, transport and manufacturing. The related teams were selected in the scope of 2 open calls. Besides the selected projects, there was an amount of proposals that could not be taken into account for funding, due to the limited amount of available funds.
Taking into account the numerous ideas and motivated teams to realize innovative solutions and business models for the agri-food related business domain, FInish would like to offer an additional opportunity to specifically those teams that did not succeed in the FInish open call 1 and 2.
Therefore the FInish Accelerator is organizing the
FInish ECFI 3 Competition
The FInish ECFI 3 Competition is an additional open call that is asking for proposals that will be evaluated during the next European Conference on the Future Internet (ECFI 3). The best 10 teams will be invited to present their ideas during the ECFI 3 in Hamburg in front of a jury, to select at minimum 5 teams to realize their proposed idea.
