Awarding the most promising companies among the Smart Anything Everywhere community!

The SAE Contest Award is aiming at

  • Identifying and promoting the most promising innovative companies within the SAE ecosystem
  • Getting them to meet with private investors to be aware of their investment strategy and expectations
  • Helping them to strengthen their investors network
  • Supporting them in obtaining the right visibility towards the right investors with the right matching thanks to BLUMORPHO coaching.

Companies having benefited from funding from one of the Innovation Actions aligned to the SAE initiative and now looking for private investors were offered to apply for the Smart Anything Everywhere Contest award 2021.

The 2021 award is dedicated towards the topic of “Smart and Sustainable Yachting and Marinas”. It is a unique opportunity to SAE beneficiaries to reach a wider investors and industrials’ ecosystem.  The organisers are partnering with the Monaco Principality, the Monaco Marina Management and leading Marina Promotors on the topic of Smart and Sustainable Cities with a specific spotlight on Marinas’ market.

This topic was selected since it is quite in the scope of the EC expectations for Innovation Actions to address e Green deal strategy while offering digitization opportunities.

A dedicated event on September 20th 2021 will gather key stakeholders, investors, industrials committed to develop smart cities and eco-designed disruptive technologies to have a positive impact on the environment.

This event offers the innovative companies participating to your Innovation Action 3 major opportunities:

  • to be selected in the catalogue of innovators issued for the Smart Yachting and Marina Monaco 2021 & Dubaï 2022 with  large European diffusion to showcase their solution to the broad corporates’ and investors’ community joining this initiative
