D2SCALE, scaling program for European deep tech ventures

This new project, in which Aalto Startup Center is involved alongside other organizations around Europe, will bring together a top-tier industry network of 300+ investors, public and private lead customers, and innovation hubs to support deep tech and digital ventures.

About the D2SCALE project

D2SCALE’s primary goal is to create and implement a sustainable scaling platform, enhancing the existing European startup ecosystem’s effectiveness and efficiency. This platform aims to support deep tech and digital ventures in developing market-ready applications, fostering significant growth and impact, particularly in key sectors like Transport, Logistics, Trade, and Smart Cities. By providing state-of-the-art methodologies, best practices, tools, and extensive pan-European networks, D2SCALE aids startup ecosystem actors and support organizations.

The program focuses on 100 selected high-potential ventures (startups and scale-ups), ensuring a direct impact on their success and offering ecosystem actors practical experience with new methodologies, networks, and synergies.

First open call and timeline

The first call of the project will be launched soon. During the month of June, the companies will be evaluated by a panel of experts and in July, the selected companies will be announced. It is in September when the services will be available for the picked companies.
