Jun 7, 2023

On 30 and 31 May 2023, REACH Incubator held its first pitching event of its third incubation round in Paris!

The REACH Datathon, held in the enchanting city of Paris on 30th and 31st May, was a thrilling showcase of groundbreaking ideas and technological expertise. With 39 ambitious startups competing for the opportunity to advance in the REACH Incubator programme, the stage was set for intense competition and innovation.

The atmosphere was electric as 39 startups from various industries and countries gathered at the Sorbonne University to present their cutting-edge solutions. These startups, coming from Spain, Portugal, Italy, Germany, Greece, Serbia, the UK, Ireland, Turkey, Belgium, Bulgaria, Estonia, France, Luxembourg, the Netherlands, Romania, Sweden, and Slovenia, captivated the audience with their technical and business pitches.

After two exhilarating days of intense competition, 10 startups emerged victorious and secured their spot in the next phase of the REACH Incubator programme:

These 10 winners will now embark on to EXPERIMENT phase, a four-month journey where they will refine their ideas and develop fully functional Minimum Viable Products (MVPs) exemplifying a Data Value Chain. During this phase, the startups will also work on strategic plans and begin executing their “investment seeking and market approach” mission. The EXPERIMENT phase offers immense opportunities for these startups to validate their concepts and scale their solutions to real-world challenges.

As the REACH Incubator continues to foster innovation and collaboration, we look forward to witnessing the transformative impact these startups will have on their respective domains. Stay tuned for more updates on their progress and the remarkable achievements that lie ahead!
