NLMK expands collaboration with startups
NLMK Group, a global steel company, has joined the SberUnity project, a Sberbank platform for organizing cooperation between major companies, startups, and investors. This service will expand NLMK Group’s collaboration opportunities with tech companies offering innovative solutions in steelmaking, energy, environment, logistics, digital technologies, and business process improvement.
Startups with an MVP or finished product registered with the SberUnity platform create a base of process solutions available to corporate partners. An effective collaboration environment enables startups to find potential clients for pilot projects, while major companies can select and test the proposed solutions to boost their efficiency.
NLMK’s funnel for innovative projects has already screened thousands of startups offering solutions for various business areas. Over 500 of them have already undergone expert assessment in the company, and approximately 100 have been integrated or are currently being piloted.
Sergey Chebotarev, NLMK Group Vice President for Energy and Environment, said: "With NLMK Group’s support, an innovative pilot project can become a workable technology that will prove its effectiveness, yield a profit for the customer, and enable the startup to roll out the solution further."
