logoDue to technical issues with the application webform (now resolved!), we are extending the closing date for the Sopra Steria ‘Chemistry’ TechMarketView Innovation Partner Programme until close of business WEDNESDAY 13th NOVEMBER.

Pitch sessions will be held as scheduled on Monday 9th December and Wednesday 11th December at Sopra Steria’s London headquarters.


Sopra Steria Chemistry

logoChemistry – the new accelerator programme from Sopra Steria, a European leader in digital transformation – is working with the TechMarketView Innovation Partner Programme to give start-ups and small businesses an opportunity to accelerate growth and open up new opportunities.

Chemistry has been created to support businesses with innovative solutions that are near market ready or already established in the market and help them grow further and faster. The programme is industry-led and has been specifically designed to help companies get their products to market quickly, using a collaborative, supportive and a professional platform.

If you are an innovative company looking for accelerated access to key markets, Chemistry has been developed to help you get there.

What Sopra Steria is looking for

TechMarketView is helping Sopra Steria find partners to address three challenges of major concern to both the public and private sectors:

  • Challenge 1 – Innovating cyber security: Keeping enterprises safe in a world of developing threats.
  • Challenge 2 – Identity validation and verification: Ensuring that an individual applying for access to public services is exactly who they say they are.
  • Challenge 3 – Transforming the inspections process: Capturing and analysing evidence to radically improve the inspection regime for assurance regarding the fulfilment of fiduciary or statutory responsibilities.

There’s a full explanation of these Challenges here.
