Cross-pitch event “Baltic+” for industries and startups

Many issues that industries are facing can be efficiently solved with existing technologies nowadays. The most critical factor for Industry is thus the access to this untapped potential from the external innovators while the latter have little knowledge of the actual problems that Industry is facing.

EIT RawMaterials and tech start-ups fund Prototron co-organise Cross-Pitch “Baltic+” event for Industry and tech start-up to find each other.

This year’s focus is on Industry 4.0 which is aligned with one of the major themes of Estonia’s Presidency of the EU.

In Industry 4.0, humans, physical and digital systems work together in an entirely new way. Robotics and other equipment remotely communicate with each other without or with little input from human operators. Large amount of data can be collected and harnessed efficiently thanks to the power of machine learning and visualisation.

For the cross-pitch event, we expect EIT RawMaterials partners and Baltic companies to pitch about the challenges and to mentor pre-selected startups and idea holders.
