The #EUvsVirus journey continues with the #EUvsVirus Launchathon! It took place online on 10 and 11 December 2020. This event is a follow up action to the #EUvsVirus Hackathon and Matchathon launched earlier in 2020 and supported by the European Innovation Council.
The #EUvsVirus series of online events aims to bring together individuals from various sectors in finding innovative solutions to address the current pandemic crisis. Some of the 120 winners that were selected for their impactful solutions and products are now market ready start-ups. Therefore, the Launchathon aimed to help them to get in touch with corporate partners, public procurers, and investors.
For two days, more than 50 teams of entrepreneurs met online with partners and investors focusing on direct, and impactful meetings and collaborations. These market ready start-ups cover the following fields: health and life, business continuity, remote working and education, social and political cohesion, digital finance, and ‘other’ — a category for projects not covered by preceding topics.
