From 12 to 14 February 2019, FIA Region I participated in the selection of promising start-ups for the project IMPACT Connected Car at the Disruptive Bootcamp in Lublin, Poland.
With its second call for start-ups, IMPACT received a total of 213 application from start-ups all over Europe. Of these, 39 were invited to the selection process in Lublin to pitch their business idea and meet with the EU Project partners.
At the end of the Disruptive Bootcamp, the jury selected 24 most promising start-ups active in the sector of connected cars, automated driving, and internet of things. For the selection, the jury considered factors such as business models, teams, market sizes, and go-to-market strategies. The selected start-ups will continue the IMPACT mentoring programme with experts in business, technology, corporations, and funding.
