The ‘Ignition Forum’ event took place from 9-10 April in Brussels and Leuven, Belgium, the EIC Scaling Club shared the 48 names of the initial cohort of deep tech scale-ups that stand to benefit from its wide range of services.

In total, ten market sector opportunities have been identified as crucial for positive impact; others include Next-Gen Computing, Digital Security & Trust, Smart Mobility OR Renewable Energies, 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 Easelink and the other hand-picked deep tech scale-ups with fundraising support, leadership mentoring and coaching, corporate partnership identification and matchmaking, media visibility, recruitment, and much more.

Easelink will be part of an esteemed community that will grow to 120+ deep tech champions in the near future, which the EIC Scaling Club will surround with hundreds of the world’s leading investment firms, corporations, media representatives, vetted business mentors and other 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 and are delighted that Easelink is part of the mix. 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. 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.
