Steel Available is exhibiting at European Utility Week, 15-17 November 2016, Barcelona.

Steel Available, today (November 11) announces that they have been selected to be part of the Initiate! Startup Program to exhibit during the EUW 2016. European Utility Week (EUW) is one of the leading event for smart utility in Europe sponsored by key players of the Energy and IT industries combined.

According to the CEO and Co-founder of Steel Available, Francesco Grillo, Steel Available offers to help the heavy industry optimize procurement through digital solutions”.


Initiate! Startup Pavillion

As mature businesses start to identify issues within their operations, they are approaching startup entrepreneurs to mimic their problem-solving strategies. Corporate leaders today are not only seeking to acquire innovative, high-potential startups, but are also trying to boost in-house innovation through these acquisitions.

The challenge with the startup-corporate collaboration is that it requires businesses to carefully examine key performance indicators and incentives for internal innovators. In order for startup engagements to translate into actual cultural change and internal learning, a long-term strategy that promotes mindset change is also key.

A successful startup-corporate relationship delivers new solutions and technological advancements in a shorter time period at lower cost. Startups can invent solutions and improve productivity, but lack the financial capital, which mature companies can provide, to refine the concept and mass-produce to reach larger markets.

The project manager for Initiate!, Sietske Jacobs, said “There is a big paradigm shift happening within the energy sector, with new technological advances needed to keep up with sustainable targets, regulation and changing consumer needs. It is therefore important for the more established professionals and utilities to look to fresh new talent and innovation, to gain even smarter ideas and bring them to the fore. If current and future talent can work together it will push the industry forward and quickly bring about much needed developments.
