PARSEC – Two extra weeks for Open Call 1!

Season’s Greetings come with a gift! The deadline to apply for the PARSEC Open Call 1 is extended to the 3rd January 2020, 17:00 CET!

PARSEC Accelerator is looking for the 100 most competent SMEs, start-ups and aspiring founders keen to develop Earth Observation-based innovations for the Food, Energy or Environment sectors.

Winners of this Open Call will have access to €10.000 equity-free funding and business support services. It is worth noting that they will also have the opportunity to compete for up to €50.000 and further support in the second Open Call and have a chance for their solutions to enter the market.

How does being a PARSEC beneficiary can add value for Earth Observation companies?

During the first stage, Earth Observation companies will establish cross-border and cross-sectoral partnerships enabling them to gain business insights in new sectors and develop added value solutions. PARSEC will also support them to validate the market potential of their business ideas by providing market intelligence on existing services and products and coaching from sector experts. As a result, they will have an opportunity to gain a competitive advantage, scale-up their innovations and enter new markets faster.
The application process is very quick and simple!

All you need to do is prepare a 3-minute video where you show:

• Yourself and your experience
• Your idea for innovation on Food, Energy or Environment
• The way in which your idea addresses the issues or needs of the sector(s)

You can find tips on how to make the video here. Read carefully the Guide for Applicants and apply here.
Applicants will be invited to evaluate other teams and their applications through a platform-based online peer to peer process, during January 2020.

Being among the 100 winners could be a great gift for yourself and your company for 2020!
