Improving Metrics has been selected to take part in the European Data Incubator (EDI), a 3-year project that offers around 100 companies the chance to solve data challenges set by major European corporates.
European Data Incubator (EDI) is an incubation programme run by 20 partners across Europe and it gives the most innovative “Big Data” companies the opportunity to tackle real world challenges set by corporates across Europe, such as improving road safety in Barcelona or predicting fraudulent transactions in supermarkets.
Improving Metrics is taking part in EDI to solve the challenge set by Emasesa. Our approach is to establish a demand management system and analysis of the water consumption in the city of Seville and its metropolitan area.
Benefits include up to 100k€ in equity-free funding, mentoring, workshops, access to a free cloud environment, and the chance to connect with and be recognised by major European organizations.
Datathon in Berlin
Each year of EDI incubation process is divided into three progressive phases, in which only the best pass to the next level: ‘Explore’, ‘Experiment’, ‘Evolve’.
On 9 and 10 October 2019, Improving Metrics will travel to Berlin with 39 other companies for the first ‘Explore’ phase. Here we will take part in a datathon, practice our pitches, receive €5k (equity-free) and meet face to face with the corporates. Finally, a jury will decide which 16 will pass to the next ‘Experiment’ level.
