In mid-2019, Aortyx was selected to participate in the EIT Headstart Program, which included 40,000 € non-dilutive funding and mentoring. After half the program was completed, all the start-ups enrolled in the program had the opportunity to demonstrate the value already created thanks to the program. Moreover, 10.000 € extra were awarded to the most advanced companies in a pitch competition held on December 9th, the EIT Headstart Pitching Day.
Thanks to all the team and to our CEO, Jordi Martorell, who presented our global progression, we were one of the awarded companies. This cash prize supports our staff and awards the progress made developing our business plan.
