If you haven’t already heard of EDP, you just might know about them after Web Summit. They are Portugal’s most innovative utility company with a strong focus on renewable energy and a significant presence across 14 countries. They’ve recently been recognised for their commitment to partnering with startups across Europe. You can read more about some EDP initiatives here.
If you are an energy startup, EDP Open Innovation provides an incredible opportunity. Selected teams will travel to Lisbon to participate in this unique four-week acceleration program. Winners receive €50,000 and an invitation to present their product in the EDP exhibition stand at Web Summit, as well as a fast track-process into the EDP Starter programme.
So what else can you expect to see from EDP at Web Summit?
EDP will invite Alphas to visit their exhibit stand and film a short pitch. The winners will gain access to EDP’s Investors Lounge for one on one sessions with EDP’s innovation team as well as executives from relevant EDP business units. This is a unique opportunity that goes hand-in-hand with the company’s open innovation philosophy.
This speed dating will take place in the amazing EDP Carousel…
