The KIC InnoEnergy MATCHMAKING EVENT Step by step 

During one day we make sure that you have met all interesting persons in your domain and started writing 
an innovation project with the best partners. 

1. Pitching 
Every person in your theme group will present his/her idea in 5 minutes. While listening to all the pitches you can vote for preferred ideas: with those persons you wish to talk and find mutual interests. 

2. Speed dating 
During 10 minutes you get a chance to speak with each of your preferred persons. Now you see whether your interests are really mutual and if you can help each other. Afterwards you vote for the persons or ideas with or for whom you see a business future. There will be a minimum of 10 rounds of speed dating. 

3. Matchmaking 
Based on the different votes of all the participants, we match the persons that have mutual interests for a new product or service, according to the value chain. In the thus created consortium, a KIC InnoEnergy. Innovation coach helps you to appoint a driver for your proposal and to start writing it. Since we organise a minimum of 3 rounds with parallel matching, you can take part in more than one innovation call proposal
