Further contributions in terms of business and territorial competence are also made by major technical partners such as Cluster Smart Communities, IREN and Solve.it.
The 8 start-ups that will be selected each year, over the 3-year time horizon of the programme, will be able to access investments of up to 325,000 euro, between initial investment and follow-on, in line with European acceleration best practices .
Magic Spectrum is aimed at start-ups operating in the key 5G and Internet of Things segments, such as smart home & building, smart mobility, smart factory, retail and logistics, agrifood, health & wellness.
The acceleration programme will consist of two phases: “Discovery” and “Validation” lasting around two months each. At the end of the first phase, the 8 start-ups will be selected and will enter the final phase of the programme, in which the project will be tested to then access Investor Day: a meeting with investors, mentors and companies.
The fist batch of the Programm is now completed. Next call will open up soon on magicspectrum.digitalmagics.com.
