During the 2-month fast-track program, we match startup solutions with enterprise challenges. Startups tackle a challenge presented by a market-leading enterprise and explore potential pilot or market alliances in target technologies and industries. Our enterprise-startup matchmaking approach will enable you access to enterprises to build a pathway to sustainable partnerships.
How does it work?
Future Hub is joined by a corporate with a sustainability challenge. Our team scouts for the best matched and startup-corporate matchmaking takes place for each challenge. Startups will be introduced to specific challenges of enterprises and given an opportunity to learn more about them. Then teams will enter ten weeks of acceleration along the explore-build-test-refine pathway.

Iterate and fine-tune the solution further
What support to expect?
To ensure successful co-creation throughout the explore-build-test-refine pathway, startups will undergo various co-creation activities to strengthen the knowledge and understanding of each week's collaboration phase. The main focus and goal of the program is the startup-corporate collaboration.
