Open Data Incubator – Opportunities for SMEs to develop Open Data applications

Open Data Incubator for Europe (ODINE) for funding of SMEs with innovative ideas on how to use open data.

What is ODINE?

The Open Data Incubator for Europe (ODINE) is a 6-month incubator for open data entrepreneurs across Europe. The programme is funded with a €7.8m grant from the EU’s Horizon 2020 programme.

Our vision for the project

ODINE aims to support the next generation of digital businesses and support them to fast-track the development of their products. We are already championing the best of European digital talent and look forward to more outstanding companies to incubate.

We create a community

Open data is a new field, yet it is supporting a rapidly developing market for innovative business ideas. Startups and SMEs based on open data are creating an open data ecosystem, using data to build sustainable businesses that generate economic, social and environmental impact.

Within the six-months incubation programme, companies receive equity-free funding, mentoring, business and data training, high-quality media, visibility at international events and introductions to investors.

The ODINE incubation programme supports startups and Small and Medium Enterprises (SMEs) that build sustainable businesses around open data.
