EUREKA Investment readiness programme

The EUREKA corporate activities are a series of online sessions between strategic partners (corporates) and startups and SMEs.

MC breathes innovation and aims to build the future of retail. They’ve been cooperating with different partners (Companies, Startups, Research and Development Centers…) to improve the shopping experience wherever their customers are and to push forward the way they operate across the value chain.

Do you have a technology-based solution that can make a dent in the retail industry? Is your product disrupting a different industry and you believe it would do the same in Retail? Then, they are looking for you.
