Business Ideas is a motivational event focused on the topic of entrepreneurship, dedicated to students and university researchers, organized by USI and SUPSI as part of the federal training program Innosuisse Start-up training.
The event is structured in two blocks:
- Entrepreneurship as a career path
3 young entrepreneurs who have decided to follow a different career path will share their stories and experience: what is their educational background, why did they choose the startup world over a career in established companies, what are the benefits and challenges.
- “My first pitch” competition
Do you have a business idea that you would like to develop? Record a video of maximum 3 minutes in English or Italian and upload it to the link found below. The top 5 candidates will be invited to present their project live in the "elevator pitch" format to win a direct admission to the pre-incubation phase at USI Startup Centre incubator to transform the idea into a startup.
