Data Pitch Newsletter - September 2018

Don't delay - apply today!  


There are just two weeks to go until the second open call for Data Pitch ends. Startups have until Tuesday 2 October to submit proposals for one of 16 challenges, which will see successful applicants benefitting from up to €100,000 equity free funding plus training, mentoring and opportunities to meet investors.

Throughout the summer we hosted a series of webinars providing support and advice for those applying to the programme.  If you missed out, you can still view them here, or you can look at our FAQs on the website or get in touch with us if your questions have not been answered.

Celebrating Success 

Companies from the first round of Data Pitch are already reporting significant successes.  So far these businesses have attracted €1,547,479 in sales and investment, and have created over 40 additional jobs. Furthermore, their final products and services are expected to create significant value from sales, investments and efficiencies and result in powerful new data-enabled business models.

One of the successful startups from the first set of 18 graduates from the accelerator programme is Italian healthcare company Pharmawizard.  

With funding and support from Data Pitch, Pharmawizard has expanded into new European markets, providing a comprehensive information and comparison service for Spanish patients and healthcare providers.  We spoke to the Pharmawizard team to find out more and you can read about their accomplishments on the ODI's website.
