During a 2-month period, start-ups having a scalable MVP with high potential for real implementation, are invited to apply and demonstrate EDP what they are capable of.


An intensive selection period will take place in which experts from EDP, with the support of everis, will analyse each application received to finally come out with a list of 10 start-ups.

Matching Day

The 10 selected start-ups participate in the Matching Day, a one day event organized to connect the selected start-ups with EDP’s experts.


Based on the outcome derived from the matching event, start-ups will work in close collaboration with the corresponding experts from EDP and everis in the development of a pilot to be implemented in EDP’s infrastructure.

Pilot Pitch

After a 3-week intensive mentorship program, start-ups will present their pilots to the audience which will be composed by EDP experts and the entrepreneurial ecosystem.
