EU selects Everimpact to be part of a restricted circle of 15 champions startups
Since Everimpact joined the Startup Acceleration Program of the European Commission back in august 2015 - 16 accelerators were in charge of delivering the 80 M€ of direct funding - a lot has happened. We developed the 1st version of our software, we showcased it at the Paris COP21 Climate Summit, and saw a lot of enthusiasm from City Officials.
Today, it is with great pleasure that we announce that Everimpact has passed another important milestone in the EU Acceleration Program: Everimpact was selected to be part of a restricted circle of 15 champions startups (Twitter Announcement).
By the numbers, this was a very competitive review made by the European Commission:
- 5,000+ applications were received by the 16 accelerators to join the EU Acceleration program
- 300+ startups got funded and joined one of the 16 accelerators either in the 2014 or 2015 batches
- Out of those 300s, 15 were selected to the restricted circle of champion startups
The 15 selected startups that will receive special support form the European Commission are:
The next stop is Milano, Italy, where we will be introduced to prestigious guests/mentors/trainers/entrepreneurs/investors, and where we will discuss the way forward for Everimpact with the EU.
In the meantime, we are finalising other exciting collaborations, stay tuned.
