Wärtsilä launches tech start-up challenge

Wärtsilä has launched a new SparkUp Challenge initiative for technology start-ups, divided into two sections – Smart Marine and Smart Energy – with applications open to interested parties up until the end of January 2018.

{mprestriction ids="1,2"}From those applicants, twelve start-ups and universities will be chosen to compete in a four-day challenge organised in Helsinki during March 2018. Two winners will get the chance to work with Wärtsilä in one of its two Digital Acceleration Centres (DAC) in Helsinki or Singapore to create a Minimum Viable Product (MVP).

“This is an amazing opportunity to co-create with us for, and really accelerate the development of, innovative digital services that sit at the heart of transforming Wärtsilä into being an as-a-service smart technology company,” said Alid Dettke, Wärtsilä’s vice president of digital innovation.

“For up to six months, we will provide the winning teams space and exposure to our experts’ advice. The winners will also get a capital grant of €50,000.”{/mprestriction}
