Jump Start Manifesto
Every day, PRIO sees people come and go. Some come rushing in and cut to the chase, while others take their time and think things through. For all of those, PRIO is more than just a pit stop. PRIO is in their lives fueling their power. Today, PRIO wants to go further and push progress to fuel your dreams. Why? Because we picture a better society. We imagine a more efficient and sustainable world.
Just 10 years ago, we have walked the walk, and just like you, we started the startup way. So we know that it takes more than just ideas. It takes more than a business model or a great product. If you want to start a change in the world, you need the courage to be the first. You have to fight against all odds, just as David fought Goliath. And this is what startups do. Right? This is why PRIO launched Jump Start in 2017, receiving 78 startup applications from all over the world. We worked closely with 4 of them in pilot projects with real impact in our daily businesses and industrial processes. Once again, this year we'll be powering up new ideas, products and ambitious entrepreneurs. From electric mobility to retail, from customer insights solutions to circular economy. PRIO will help businesses take off. We want to see you move off the grid and jump start your business. So that, together, we can continue to fuel progress.

Last year's testemonials
"Going to Jump Start was a constant growth source for Infraspeak. (...) during the pilot, where the application of AGILE methodology allowed a "doing-feedback-learn" continued dynamics with excelent results for parties."
"By attending PRIO Jump Start, we had the chance to meet several high level people from PRIO, which allowed us the access to information about real problems of the company (..) it allowed us to develop a commercial partnership with PRIO that is still active (1 year after Jump Start) and a future projected growth."
"We saw a fantastic opportunity working with PRIO Jump Start and was fortunate enough to be given a chance to take part in the Jumpstart programme. During the period we have had engaging support from PRIO Senior Members of Staff in Management and Subject matter experts in field understanding the key problem areas where our solutions can add value."
"Participating in the Jump Start programme, fuelled by PRIO, was a real pleasure. Besides the interesting discussions we had with both PRIO staff and startups, the organisation of the event was very professionally executed."
