Adamed Group partnetrs up with 3rd MITEF
MIT Enterprise Forum Poland is beginning recruitment for the next start-up acceleration programme based on the know-how of one of the world’s leading technology universities — the Massachusetts Institute of Technology. As part of the project, beginner entrepreneurs will be helped among others by the Adamed Group, a partner of Ścieżka Zdrowie [Path: Health]. The winning companies will receive funding of as much as PLN 200,000 and support in the form of services worth up to PLN 50,000.
The project aims to help start-ups developing unique technologies to accelerate the commercialisation of the solutions proposed. Polish innovative micro and small companies can submit application documents via the mitefpoland.org website from 1 March until 15 May 2017. As part of the award, in addition to funding, representatives of the top five start-ups will go to a boot camp at the MIT in Boston.
This is the second recruitment drive for a programme implemented as part of a project partially financed using ScaleUp funds. 23 start-ups, including SensoriumLab, developing a unique technology for monitoring patients at risk of pleural effusion, qualified for the previous (ongoing) programme, which started in January this year. As the start-up representatives admit, the benefits of participating in the project go far beyond the mere possibility of obtaining funding for developing a business.
