In each category, the best two companies will receive a full year of dedicated support from the EIT Digital Accelerator to scale up their business. On top of that, the first prize winner in each category receives a cash prize of €50,000. The winners from previous years have now grown into successful companies, such as HSD Partner Storro, third in 2015.
