CreatiFI’s Open Call 2 is open until the end of September and it is looking for 20 European SMEs with business minded service or solution in creative industries. Winning proposals will be awarded with up to 100 k€.
CreatiFI’s target is to find new exciting service and solution ideas which are based on creative industries and have also a significant business potential. In addition to these requirements, the winning proposals need to make use of FIWARE technology. At this stage, the proposed ideas should be in a prototype stage.
In CreatiFI creative industries are defined very broadly and it covers for example marketing, advertising and media, as well as the gaming industry.
In the proposal stage the implementation of FIWARE technology is not necessary but the plan for rapid execution is needed.
The proposal can also be an extension of existing service, to which FIWARE technology can create new features, as well as new business potential.
In the Open Call 2, there are extra possibilities for ideas which are related to open data and smart cities. CreatiFI can offer four living lab test environments in selected European cities during the project.
The call is open until 30th September 2015
The top 40 proposals will be presented on 26-28 October in Brussels. The final selection of 20 awarded projects will be made by a international jury of investors and business angels. From Finland up to five companies will be selected.
