Less than a week to apply for Prototron’s autumn round!
There are thousands of issues related to industry, energy and its consumption, as well as the prospects of the transport system, its development and optimisation.
If you have an idea how to solve any of these problems, send your application before October 15th!
Prototron is open for any ideas and projects! However, in this round we pay special attention and provide additional resources to the projects with following topics:
- With the support of Elering, the fund is looking for ideas on the data processing in the energy sector;
- With the support of EIT Raw Materials, we are looking for solutions for industrial digitalization;
- With the participation of FinEst Link experts and the Tekes fund, we support the ideas on how to optimise the transport connection between Tallinn and Helsinki.
In addition to funding from the Prototron Foundation, the best ideas will be supported by partners and provided with tools and resources required for the successful implementation of projects. Start-ups are also given an opportunity to develop their idea in Science Park Tehnopol incubator, use the technique and advice of experienced mentors, as well as rely on legal support from Hedman Lift and opportunity to pitch before mentors @Seed Forum in order to achieve success as quickly as possible.
At the moment, Prototron that was established in 2012 by Swedbank, Tallinn Science Park Tehnopol and Tallinn University of Technology, supported entrepreneurs and start-ups through investing about 600 000 euros.
Some of these ideas have already become international success stories. For example: Lingvist, Shipitwise, Flydog, Smart Load Solutions, coModule, GlobalReader, HackMotion and Sprayprinter.
