The EU-funded business accelerator KATANA will distribute in total 1.2 million euros to European entrepreneurs, start-ups and SMES. KATANA aims to support innovative ideas in the development of application solutions in agribusiness. Application is open from 1 December to 28 February.
As of 1 December 2016, the EU-funded business accelerator KATANA is searching for ambitious entrepreneurs, start-ups and SMEs with a great vision for the future of agribusiness. Addressing agrifood, ICT and emerging industries (eco-industries, mobile services and personalized health), KATANA provides the best 100 applicants with 2,000 euros funding while the best 10 teams in terms of market attractiveness and performance will be granted 100,000 euros each. In addition to that, selected beneficiaries receive business services worth 20,000 euros.
We believe that funding alone cannot guarantee the success of a venture. This is why our teams will be supported by dedicated KATANA coaches and have access to tailor-made coaching materials such as webinars and online courses
says Alexandra Rudl from bwcon GmbH, project coordinator and German representative of the project team.
KATANA services include 14 pan-European matchmaking events, a three days onsite Bootcamp as well as an international Investment Forum.
