#CallForGrowth: Italian startups to challenge exponential technologies
Italian startups involved in the technology field can apply before 26 April 2017 to the #CallForGrowth, the call launched by growITup, the open innovation platform set up by Cariplo Factory in collaboration with Microsoft aimed at bridging Made-In-Italy industries and the startup ecosystem.
The #CallForGrowth call is built around six thematic areas:
- Virtual, Augmented & Mixed Reality;
- Applied Artificial Intelligence & Machine Learning;
- Internet of Things;
- Blockchain & Payment Systems;
- Security and Service Architecture;
- Big Data & Analytics.
The call is open to all Italian startups in the post-seed phase that intend to bring value to the open innovation process. Startups that will be selected during the “screening” phase will then be involved in a selection workshop with growITup corporate partners, including Alpitour, CNH Industrial, Enel, Generali, Intesa Sanpaolo and Luxottica. The startups selected during the workshop will have the opportunity to take the first steps towards the final goal: a commercial/industrial partnership or an investment.
