StartUp Day, the most important and attended event in Italy for youth and academic entrepreneurship, has been online for the first time.
Over 200 ideas and 500 Players subscribed for the online Team Meeting.
Organized by University of Bologna with Almacube, the Incubator and Innovation Hub of the University, and Confindustria Emilia Area Centro, has been online for the first time on 25th June. The Dean, during the opening ceremony, repeated that in such a delicate and unexpected moment, the future of innovation is more than ever in the hands of our students.
At StartUp Day ideas meet competencies, and talents meet opportunities. In a single day, the event gathers over more than 2000 people interested in the world of innovation and startups: students, graduates, researchers, professors and representatives of the entrepreneurial ecosystem, entrepreneurs, professionals and investors. StartUp Day was born in 2015 from an idea of three students from the University of Bologna. Currently, Almacube is organizing its fifth edition.
"Innovation walks with the legs of our students."
