WHAT IS DIGITAL INDUSTRY? 

Digital Industry is a call for collaboration with GE to build and deploy advanced data solutions using GE’s cloud-based platform Predix.
 

WHO IS IT FOR?

The program is for independent entrepreneurs and startups based in Europe or Israel with a proven track record in data science and advanced analytics. It is for teams and individuals who are willing to contribute to the development of applications that use operational industrial data for better and faster decision-making.
 

WHY COME ON BOARD? 

Teams will go from an industrial or business challenge to a commercially viable solution. By supporting a community of entrepreneurs and developers, GE provides financial and mentoring resources. With this support, selected teams will build and deploy apps in a secure environment and get the opportunity to access GE's market and network.
