About the Public Utility Program 2024

This is the first edition of our Public Utility Program. We kick it off with a physical session, November 5-6, hosted by Kongsberg Innovation in Oslo, Norway. Like all our programs it will primarily focus on creation of business opportunities between participating European deeptech companies and international Corporates, Service Providers and Investors with deeptech appetite. The preparation and post kick-off sessions are all digital to drive efficiency, flexibility and to let participants focus on their own business. With parallel programs taking place from Fall 2024 we have replaced the concluding Program Summits with a stand-alone Summit for all companies in Deep Tech Alliance.

A top-ranked program feature is the curated match meeting opportunities arranged during the program, face-to-face at the Kick-off and digital after that. The European startups invited are selected from requests provided by the participating Corporates, which increase chances of finding business opportunities.

The program also provides expert led online sessions on relevant topics, such as pricing and B2B Sales conversion. Participation in these is optional, and most sessions are recorded to allow for catching up on relevant sessions afterward.

In the program, participating startups get:

  • Handheld match meetings with International Corporate Partners.
  • Investor pitch and match meeting with preferred Investors.
  • Workshops with experts that will help you understand, approach and engage with corporates.
  • Peer-to-peer network with best-in-class mature startups from all over Europe.
  • Physical kick-off event, November 5-6 in Oslo, Norway.
  • Free participation in the stand-alone Summit preliminary scheduled for Paris December 5.
  • Invited to Alumni activities onwards.

Participation requirements

  • Company registered in a European Country (including non-EU countries like the UK, Norway, Switzerland, Ukraine, etc.)
  • Ready to engage with big industrial clients (min. TRL 4 ready for TRL 5 validation)
  • Program participation fee €1.000. The participation fee covers all program content including lunches and networking dinners during the events.
  • Participants are to cover travel to and lodging related to the kick-off event.
