The EIC Scaling Club today unveiled the selection of the first 48 European deep tech scale-ups to join its curated community of standout companies, investors, corporate innovators, mentors, media firms and other industry stakeholders.

Ahead of the ‘Ignition Forum’ event to be held on 9-10 April in Brussels and Leuven, Belgium, the EIC Scaling Club proudly shares the names of the initial cohort of deep tech scale-ups that stand to benefit from its wide range of services.

The companies were carefully selected based on a number of criteria, and fall within four predefined market sector opportunities: Next-Gen Computing, Digital Security & Trust, Smart Mobility and Renewable Energies.

Smart Mobility

In total, ten market sector opportunities have been identified as crucial for positive impact; others include Clean Fuels & Hydrogen, New Space Tech and New Biotech Platforms.

Backed by the European Innovation Council, the flagship programme of the European Commission with a budget north of €10 billion, the EIC Scaling Club’s mission is to significantly grow the value of the selected world-class businesses and help maximise their positive impact on a global level.

The EIC Scaling Club will assist the hand-picked deep tech scale-ups with fundraising support, leadership mentoring and coaching, corporate partnership identification and matchmaking, media visibility, recruitment, and much more.

In the near future, the EIC Scaling Club will expand its efforts to build a high-level, international network of more than 120 deep tech champions and surround them with hundreds of the world’s leading investment firms, corporations, media representatives, vetted business mentors and other technology industry stakeholders.

"On behalf of all the partners working together to turn the EIC Scaling Club into a 'catalyst for scale', we welcome the first 48 companies into the fold. In unison with our investor, corporate, mentor and media stakeholder members, we will ensure that the selected deep tech companies derive as much value for their businesses as possible, as fast as possible," said William Stevens, co-founder and group managing director of Tech Tour, coordinator of the EIC Scaling Club.

"Time is of the essence when building category leaders in the deep tech sector, and our goal is to accelerate our company members on their scale-up journey," Stevens added.

The EIC Scaling Club team will provide more information on the 48 selected companies and the initiative in general at the upcoming Ignition Forum event in Belgium, including a press briefing for journalists.
