In cooperation with the European Institute of Innovation and Technology (EIT) and Commercialization Reactor, an international platform for science commercialization, Invento Capital Partners, University of Zagreb, University of Ljubljana, Ljubljana University Incubator, University of Tartu, Tartu Science Park, launches a collaborative project aimed to facilitate and support the creation of science-based (deep-tech) start-ups on the European level.

Within the cooperation, partners invite ambitious entrepreneurial individuals to transform themselves into deep-tech entrepreneurs at the 20th Ignition Event - a dedicated deep technology showcase event, where entrepreneurs create teams with scientists.
Those interested in the Ignition Event will first go through the Ignition Qualifiers program, to be equipped and qualify for starting a science-based venture at the Event.

For more than 10 years, Commercialization Reactor’s methodology has been tested and validated in Latvia. During previous 19 Ignition Events by Commercialization Reactor, over 100 start-ups have been formed on the basis of international scientific teams and local non-technical entrepreneurial individuals, receiving investments and proceeding to developing their business with ongoing support.

With a help of EIT, this scheme of matching serial entrepreneurs and scientists is expanded in 2022 to 3 more countries besides Latvia: Croatia, Slovenia and Estonia.

Top local entrepreneurial ecosystem and university partners were picked for cooperation in sourcing technologies and scientific teams, providing practical expert knowledge in support program modules as well as providing critical support and communication infrastructure for local entrepreneurs to start off their international deep-tech journey.

In Croatia, Invento Capital Partners will encourage entrepreneurs to prepare through the Ignition Qualifiers program, while the Transfer Technology Office from the University of Zagreb will gather deep tech technologies that will be presented at the Ignition event.

The 20th “Ignition Event” is taking place ONLINE on 11-12 November 2022 – a dedicated deep technology showcase event where Entrepreneurial Individuals will have a chance to meet & create startup teams with pre-selected scientists. Apply here.
