BIND 4.0, the first accelerator programme that guarantees winning major contracts with big companies will be presented at Tramshed Tech, Cardiff. In this session, you will find out more about this innovative programme through the experiences of previous participants.

Bind 4.0 is a public-private accelerator programme located in the Basque Country. It is targeted at the best start-ups which can provide solutions based on industry 4.0 technologies (big Data, virtual / augmented reality, collaborative robotics, cyber security, Internet of things, 3D printing, etc.) which are applied to advanced manufacturing, energy, health and food tech sectors.

The programme offers excellent support services and guarantees the development of projects with major companies which have a strong footprint in the Basque Country. These include Mercedes-Benz Vitoria, ABB, Bridgestone, Iberdrola, Repsol-Petronor, Michelin, and Danobat Group. This innovative programme boosts the immersion of international start-ups in one of the most vibrant industrial ecosystems in Europe, securing business contracts and cooperation with large industrial companies.

In the last edition of the programme, 524 start-up candidates from 64 different countries were received of which 32 were selected by 40 collaborating companies to undertake 44 industry 4.0 projects.

In addition to offering a contract with one of the top Basque companies for the development of an Industry 4.0 project, it also offers technological collaboration with Siemens, Amazon and Microsoft.
