Digital Catapult showcases the drive for industrial innovation

By 2030, the UK will be a global industrial leader in creating, adopting and exporting advanced digital technologies, shaping how the world does business.

The Made Smarter Technology Accelerator is the largest accelerator programme in the UK dedicated to supporting technological innovation from startups capable of adding value to the industrial and manufacturing sectors.

Designed to address core manufacturing challenges, this 12-month accelerator programme aims to speed up understanding of advanced digital technologies, drive innovation and unlock benefits for the UK economy.

“Only one percent of all of the venture capital money that flows into tech in the UK is in the space that we’re exploring today. That of course makes this programme incredibly important, because we’re trying to help identify and hopefully create some of the future tech startups in this space.”
Juergen Maier CBE, Chair of Digital Catapult and Co-chair of Made Smarter

The programme is supported by seven Industry Challenge Owners: Babcock International Group, BAE Systems, GAF, Northumbrian Water, O’Neills Irish International Sports Co. Ltd, Safran Landing Systems and Sainsbury’s, along with Technology Sponsors, Software AG and Verizon Business.    Read more…
