Four new incubated startups and their innovative solutions
USI Startup Centre
6 October 2023
On Wednesday, October 4th, the second edition of the Incubation Kick-off Pitch took place at the East Campus. The event aims to introduce innovative startup projects incubated at the USI Startup Centre to the academic community and create actionable connections.
Each startup had 10 minutes to pitch their solution, followed by a 10-minute Q&A with the audience composed of USI Startup Centre Scientific Board members, researchers, students, and innovation enthusiasts. This interactive format encourages discussion and provides an opportunity for presenting startups to gather valuable feedback and make connections that can lead to potential future joint activities, from Field Projects to research collaborations, to explore during the course of the incubation programme run by USI Startup Centre.
Over the next two years, the founders will continue developing their startup projects following a structured strategic pathway focused on validating the business model, proving traction, and raising further funds from investors. Throughout this journey, the entrepreneurs are supported by the USI Startup Centre team and external advisors, as well as by a growing community of like-minded individuals.
