Nais has been selected by EIT Digital, Europe’s largest digital innovation community, as a finalist in its renowned pan-European competition EIT Digital Challenge. The competition focuses on startups in growth stage, so-called scaleups, with deep tech products that leverage sophisticated, hard-to-reproduce digital technologies that fuel the digital transformation. 

A total of 409 companies from 33 countries applied for the competition. They cover a variety of areas strategically chosen with respect to major digital trends and European leadership potential: Digital Tech, Digital Industry, Digital Cities, Digital Finance and Digital Wellbeing.

Nais will compete against nineteen other European deep tech scaleups. Three winners will be awarded and receive a full year support by the EIT Digital Accelerator worth €50,000 to grow their businesses in Europe and beyond. The first prize winner will receive an additional cash prize of €100,000.
