Six highly innovative start-ups

The Network will be present at the EU Industry Days with a virtual exhibition. If you would like to know more about innovative companies that have expanded across borders with the support of the Enterprise Europe Network, come talk to our business advisers and see how #EENCanHelp.

Six European start-ups that benefited from the Network’s expertise and financial support will be present at the event’s virtual exhibition.

Under the first topic – 'Green and digital transition'– Enrico Raimondo is revolutionising the fashion and luxury sectors. The Italian start-up has developed an innovative technique that enables the reuse of carbon fibres to create sustainable bags, shoes, and other accessories. The Networks advisers provided the start-up with advice on innovation and sustainability, while also helping it improve its business model for accelerated growth.

Nuromedia GmbH, a German start-up creating interactive applications for e-health, Internet of Things (IoT), gamification, and e-learning solutions, will join the event under the second topic, ‘Green and digital new business models. This section of the event will also feature NablaWave, an Italian company providing innovative R&D services to a wide range of industries, from aerospace to maritime and energy; the Network helped them find new clients and partners and grow internationally.

The third topic of the event – '2022 European Year of Youth'– brings together three other projects supported by the Network. Beefy Green, winner of the Network 2021 Awards 'Stepping Ahead' category, is a Dutch company producing sustainable mushroom-based food products. With the Network’s help, they were able to find the right business partners and access international markets. Resortecs is a Belgium start-up that makes the reusing and recycling of textiles easy thanks to new automatic processes for a more sustainable fashion industry. Our Network partners supported them on their ambitious mission by offering tailored advice on funding, internationalisation, social innovation, and licencing. Wildling Shoes creates minimal shoes using sustainable materials that enable a natural flow of movement, all while ensuring fair working conditions and protecting the environment. Thanks to the Network advisers, the German start-up was able to conquer new markets.
