November 2023, Saarbrücken / St. Ingbert: In close cooperation with the funding consultancy DORUCON – DR. RUPP CONSULTING GmbH, the Saarland start-up QuantPi won the EIC Accelerator in November 2023. The highly competitive European funding program, which supports breakthrough innovations on their way to the market, is providing QuantPi with funding of almost 2.5 million € for its outstanding work and its potential to create protective measures for generative AI.

EIC Accelerator: Europe’s top program for groundbreaking ideas

The EIC Accelerator is considered one of the most sophisticated funding instruments for innovation in Europe. Due to the intense competition, companies are required to present their projects in a detailed application process. The EIC Accelerator focuses in particular on start-ups and SMEs that have the potential to revolutionize the European market with their groundbreaking innovations. The probability of success across Europe is around 5 percent. From the initial concept submission to the detailed application to the final pitch in Brussels, DORUCON was continuously at QuantPi’s side.
