The EIC Corporate Days promote business opportunities between big corporates — which are always looking for innovative solutions to improve their products and services — and the SMEs funded by the EIC pilot.
In Hamburg, Finboot shared its solution MARCO Track&Trace, a digital solution to make supply chains smarter, safer and more efficient, to top representatives from comdirect, Commerzbank, DAK-Gesundheit, Commerz Real, Lufthansa Technik, Main Incubator and Salesforce.
Sabine Schoon, Head of Corporate Strategy and Consulting at comdirect, highlighted the quality of the companies attending: “I saw very different companies. On one side, I saw several companies I can imagine we can cooperate with in the future. On the other hand, I also saw a couple of companies where we can possibly follow up with an investment. But we will need to get more detailed discussions and get more information.”
Jana Koch, Head of Business Development & Innovation Management at comdirect, also shared her feedback on the event: “The SMEs I found here were very open minded. They’re trying to find solutions that cross industries and that’s really amazing to see. The atmosphere was fantastic.”
Juan M. Pérez, CEO and co-founder at Finboot, expressed “comdirect’s Corporate Day was an excellent opportunity to raise our visibility in the German ecosystem. We were very impressed and fascinated by the willingness of these leading corporates to engage with smaller innovative groups.”
