Launched on 7 September of this year, Industrya's call for applications came to a close. More than 40 start-up/scale-up companies active in the energy, industry 4.0 and new materials sectors responded to this first call for projects.

A majority of the applications come from Belgium, France, Luxembourg, the Netherlands and the United Kingdom. Most of the applicants are start-ups that have already been operational for 1 to 3 years and most of them already generate turnover.

From February 2021, the selected startup/scale-up companies will then be able to take advantage of personalised, tailor-made and high-quality coaching services (incubation or acceleration support programmes, in the form of growth support services, preparation for fund raising, and meetings with investors and major groups that are partners of our investors) and will also be able to benefit from an investment in the form of an equity investment by Industrya of up to a maximum of €2 million.

Industrya's next call for applications will be launched in the spring of 2021.
