Nxtus announces first cohort of NXTSTAGE Competition

The NXTSTAGE Pilot Competition, NXTUS’ newest effort to support entrepreneurs and foster innovation, today announced 33 finalists spanning the three focus areas of its inaugural program: Financial Technology, Industry 4.0, and Community Health & Vibrancy.

During the first quarter of 2020, NXTSTAGE attracted 142 initial competitors — from six continents, 35 countries and 20 states — trying to get in front of prospective pilot partners and customers here.

NXTSTAGE 2020’s 33 finalists, from four countries and 14 states, offer ready-to-use technologies deemed most promising to add value for local corporate and community partners looking to innovate. Not all NXTSTAGE tracks will proceed all the way to awarding pilots in 2020, given COVID-19-related disruptions experienced by local manufacturing and community partners.
