EIT Urban Mobility was thrilled to be in Estonia last week mingling with the best of the Baltic’s (and beyond) start-up scene. The three-day event is the largest one in the region bring together the start-up ecosystem in the city of Tartu, Estonia.
Our Partners, the University of Tartu were one of the key organisers of the festival contributing to an inspiring programme of talks, workshops seminars and mingling events. At one seminar organised by the University, Peter Vest and Anna Burgués of EIT Urban Mobility presented Liveable Cities: Investment Opportunities from EIT Urban Mobility and EIT Urban Mobility.
EIT Urban Mobility joined EIT Manufacturing in the Demo Area, a space where start-ups, investors and organisations in the ecosystem could mingle, present their product/service, and learn more from each other. It was great to meet with the ecosystem and see how they got creative with our Lego build a bike challenge!
Friedrich Kaasik from the University of Tartu said, “It’s all about Making Innovation Happen! I think the participation in sTARTUp Day has been very successful! Especially when you think about the number of startups and scientists that have dropped by to talk to us here. Hopefully there will be more activities related to EIT Manufacturing and EIT Urban Mobility, but also that start-ups or people with a start-up-mindset, will find the EIT Jumpstarter, for example.”
It was fantastic to support several mobility start-ups to attend the event and look forward to seeing their businesses develop. Below are some images of a warmup event co-hosted by the University of Tartu. It was an opportunity for mingling amongst mobility start-ups and investors.
“If you want to do something big, this is the event to come to!”
