Houston Analytics a finalist in the Digital Industry category

Since 2014, the EIT Digital Challenge for scaleups has already motivated over 1,400 businesses from EU member states to participate in this competition to find the best scaleups and in this way, boost their business operations. Many of the award-winning businesses are now internationally successful companies.

- “International growth companies need strong special expertise to find customers and funding. We help deep tech businesses conclude growth-creating agreements through our excellent Europe-wide business and technology ecosystem,” says Marko Turpeinen, Director of EIT Digital Finland.

Houston Analytics is one of the five finalists in the Digital Industry category. At the final held in Eindhoven in the Netherlands on 29 November, the finalists will be able to pitch their concepts for success to a panel of prestigious judges. Houston Analytics will also have a stand at the Innovation Day of EIT Digital event, which is being arranged in connection with the final.

- “We are a digital-age innovation company seeking growth and internationalisation, so it was natural for us to enter the EIT Digital Challenge competition for scaleups. It’s great that we made it to the final. I believe that our success in this competition will speed up our internationalisation through new contacts, opportunities and marketing channels,” says CEO of Houston Analytics Antti Syväniemi.
