International expansion of EIT Digital
Support for entry into foreign markets

 

EIT Digital is a European platform focused on supporting innovation, education and entrepreneurship in the field of digital technology. JIC is a partner of EIT Digital for the Czech Republic, and helps identify attractive companies and corporations for cooperation with EIT Digital.

EIT supports companies that use digital technology for industrial applications, smart cities, data and infrastructure administration and protection, disease prevention or detection, and the financial sector. The target group is innovative companies that have already been well-established (at least in the domestic market), have a scalable product or service, a potential for fast growth, and that operate in the B2B segment. Another important prerequisite is the necessary capacity to pursue international expansion.
