BlockStart is a pan-European acceleration programme, focused on supporting early-stage blockchain startups from all over the EU and H2020 Associated Countries with the development of their solutions and with the main objective to facilitate goal-oriented, business-focused, and mutually beneficial partnerships between them (as solution providers) and end-user SMEs (as solution adopters).

The offer

One of the main objectives of BlockStart is to encourage collaboration between end-user SMEs and blockchain specialists, as technology providers, and to promote knowledge about the benefits and opportunities of these technologies. This collaboration is of utmost importance in the Pilot stage of BlockStart’s acceleration programme, where startups will have the chance to test their solutions together with end-user SMEs.

SME adopters will benefit from €3,000 equity-free funding and will have the chance to implement blockchain pilot solutions with BlockStart’s top startups that have gone through the previously described programme.

How to apply

Any European or H2020 Associated Country SME operating in the fields of fintech, ICT and retail is eligible as a participant and should fill in an online application form at the F6S platform. Deadline for applications is 10 November  at 5pm CET (Brussels Time).

For more information on application criteria and how to apply, you can go to blockstart.eu/adopters.

Webinar
