As we bid farewell to IndX 2023, we can confidently declare it a great year for IndX. With over 100 applications, a notable growth from the previous year’s 54.
Throughout the year, we conducted a total of four pitch days, engaging with 23 startups and fostering meaningful dialogues. This inflow of startups is not happening by itself; it is the result of hard work and an active strategy.
This led to approximately 40 ongoing dialogues, with around 20 active conversations between startups and corporate partners—an outcome directly attributable to pitch days and proactive startup scouting.
Robin Eriksson, Program Manager IndX, reflecting on the year says,
“It has been amazing to see the fruitful conversations between our startups and partners. We have worked with our value proposition, formulated clear challenges for each IndX day, and worked actively on sourcing companies matching our partners’ needs,” says Robin.
Beyond the formal pitch days, some startups had the opportunity to digitally present their pitches to our corporate partners.
We’ve also arranged one Demo Day in November, showcasing four standalone proof-of-concept projects between startups and corporate partners from 2022.
Looking ahead, IndX 2024 is set to continue the success streak, announcing five IndX Days. This year, pitch days will be rebranded as IndX Days, focusing on pitch and meet events, each with a specific focus for each day where the corporate partners all will announce challenges connected to the theme. The application process will be continuous, providing startups the flexibility to apply at any time. The first IndX day is arranged with Cyberly with a focus on cybersecurity.
In tandem with our accomplishments, our LinkedIn following has surpassed 300, underscoring our commitment to expanding our social media network and keeping our followers informed about the latest updates from IndX and other compelling content.
