Bind 4.0 has opened a call for companies willing to work with Industry 4.0 startups. An information event will take place in Bilbao on March 3 and is opened to industrial firms with more than 250 employees that either are based or have a production centre in the Basque Country.

Bind 4.0 has already partnered with ABB, Grupo Alcor, CAF, CIE Automotive, Danobat Group, Euskaltel, ITP, Fagor Ederlan Taldea, Iberdrola, Maier, Mercedes Benz, Michelin, Nem Solutions, Repsol-Petronor and Grupo Ulma. Most of those companies are currently working with one or two of the 10 startups that have been selected in the first edition of the acceleration programme.

Bind 4.0 requires partner companies to have internal managers working with startups and taking part in the matching, mentoring and demo events. The acceleration programme becomes a tool for them to innovate and to know what is being developed in the Industry 4.0 field by the most disruptive startups.
