With the FIWARE Accelerator Programme the European Commission encourages startups and SMEs to build products, services and business upon the FIWARE technology layer. As a result of this program around 1.000 companies and / or products are built up on FIWARE technology. The faith of these companies and products is strongly connected to a sustainable future development of FIWARE and an ecosystem which will provide the FIWARE services on best economic and social conditions. By the time of ICT, hundreds of companies will have had their first experience with creating products based on FIWARE and their lessons learned will be invaluable.
The FIWARE Association together with the Coordination and Support Actions FI Business and iHub.eu network will animate this interactive group networking session with which we will contribute to the community building among companies that use FIWARE or that are interested to do so in the future. Using the world café format, we will investigate into common needs of companies using FIWARE and we will promote sustainable personal links between them. The outcomes of this session will also be valuable input to all stakeholders involved in the FIWARE community on how to make the FIWARE ecosystem sustainable.
