DigiCirc will have 3 accelerator programmes, based on the 3 domains of Circular Cities, Bioeconomy and Blue Economy. Each accelerator will have 2 phases, the 1st phase aiming to develop a value proposition and business plan, while identifying, through 1-on-1 mentorship and systemic design modelling, gaps in knowledge, market access, expertise, equipment, etc. needed to further develop and/or enable commercialisation. The DigiCirc Innovation Ecosystem will be leveraged through a matchmaking tool to help SMEs create complementary consortia, meeting SME capacity gaps, and enabling large scale demonstration.
The 2nd stage will spark consortia’s potential by closely working on solutions’ market potential and go-to-market strategies, as well by providing financial and knowledge-based support to speed up MVP improvements.
During both phases, accelerator beneficiaries will have free access and specific support to use all DigiCirc digital tools and IP services, preparing for and initiating LSD.
