Startup Europe, through the project TWIST, is setting up an open innovation strategy through the implementation of a specific instrument:  The Challenge.
The challenge aims at fostering innovation needs of medium and large companies, both public and private,  by inviting  startups and talents to define  and present the most innovative and technologically advanced ideas and to develop their solutions.
Any idea addressing the identified “TWIST Innovation  Challenge”  can be submitted through the Digital Twister Platform
The ideas and proposed solutions will be evaluated  and selected by a panel of experts, investors and representatives of companies promoting the challenge.
The selected teams /startups will work jointly with mentors from large corporates  to fine tune the proposed solutions and the “pitch” for the final event with investors and Angels. Prize award can also be foreseen in some specific challenges.
