After an impactful journey that commenced in September 2020, REACH Incubator has reached its end, leaving behind a legacy of fostering innovation in the data-driven startup ecosystem.


Over the course of three annual incubation rounds, each spanning 11 months and focusing on business-oriented experimentations, REACH has been a catalyst for 103 startups, providing them with a total of €3.5 million in equity-free funding.

The program’s success is evident in the impressive outcomes of these incubation rounds. Notably, 40 new data value chains have been established, alongside the development of 30 Minimum Viable Products (MVPs) and the launch of 24 data products into the market. Furthermore, 19 startups have successfully secured private investment, underscoring the real-world impact of the incubation program.
