Amplify Analytix wins the 2020 Datathon of the European Data Incubator (EDI), receives €80K equity-free funding for product development.
What did we win?
Amplify Analytix’s #WomenInTech team (Laura Murphy, Ayse Elvan Aydemir, Plamena Petrova, and Kalina Todorova) has demonstrated business and technical excellence in advanced data science in the 2020 EDI Datathon (October 19-20, 2020).
The prize includes mentoring, workshops, access to a free cloud environment, and the chance to connect with and be recognized by major European organizations, along with the €100k in equity-free funding. The team has moved to the next stage of the EDI’s Challenge – Experiment.
All companies presented their business and technical pitches and were evaluated based on 3 main pillars: Technical, Business, and Team Evaluations. Aspects such as the degree of innovation of the technical solution, the presentation skills and style, and the team experience building startups were reviewed, among many others.

What are the next steps?
The program gives the participants the chance to grow their business as they solve a real-life challenge set by a major European corporate, with the help of up to €80K equity-free funding and a dedicated coach.
Each year of the EDI incubation process is divided into three progressive phases, in which only the best startups pass to the next level: ‘Explore’, ‘Experiment’, ‘Evolve’. Over the next 4 months, Amplify Analytix will collaborate with EDI and partners during the intense “Experiment” phase, in which they will build an MVP and bring it to the market.
The Challenge that Amplify Analytix will be solving through product development is Pattern Recognition Campaign Performance Indicators, set by JOT Internet Media. The approach is to use or design algorithms to solve the problem of enabling media planners to choose search keyword(s) that have an optimal impact on Click-through-rates (CTRs) and Clicks.
