EIT InnoEnergy: Ecosystem opportunities for start-ups and stakeholders

At the centre of any effort to decarbonise Europe is how we power our society. Industries, transportation, housing: all have to get energy from somewhere. In order to actually reduce greenhouse gas emissions on a large scale, it has become indispensable to embrace renewable energy as the cheaper, more efficient, and lifesaving solution compared to fossil fuel sources. Working towards this objective, EIT InnoEnergy brings people and resources together, catalysing and accelerating the energy transition through new ideas, products and solutions that make a real difference, and new businesses to deliver them to market.

Established in 2010 and supported by the European Institute of Innovation and Technology, EIT InnoEnergy builds connections worldwide by gathering innovators and industry, entrepreneurs and investors, graduates and employers. As a major player in sustainable energy, EIT InnoEnergy is very active in fostering innovation: its current track record includes over 200 portfolio companies on their way to generate €110 billion in revenue by 2030, €9.7 billion in investments raised from external partners, more than 370 patents filed to create commercially viable technologies and over 300 products launched into the market. Recently, EIT InnoEnergy also announced the successful completion of its private placement round of over €140 million of equity: the proceeds will be used for increasing new deal flow, accompanying the portfolio companies in their growth.

With the aim of presenting the EIT InnoEnergy international Ecosystem to the Torino network of industry stakeholders, academic researchers and innovative start-ups, Politecnico - Institutional Partner of EIT InnoEnergy - and the business incubator I3P organised a public event in Torino on 5 October 2023, which will bring together many institutional representatives, high-profile guests, venture capitalists and young entrepreneurs to discuss the most interesting projects, initiatives and funding opportunities in the energy sector. The in-person event will be held in I3P’s Sala Agorà, located within the Campus of Politecnico, and will start at 14,00 with its schedule of panels, round tables and reserved meetings to further explore possible new collaborations.

Registration for the event is open, but the number of available places is limited.
