Only a few days left to participate in the Stage 2 of the contest and submit the Business Plan of your innovative project!

The Business Plan Competition of Start Cup Piemonte Valle d'Aosta 2021 is coming to an end: there are only 48 hours left to the closing of entries to the contest for the entrepreneurs of tomorrow!

Until Wednesday, September 1, 2021, you can submit one or more innovative projects on the official website of the competition, within its five categories: Cleantech & Energy, ICT, Industrial, Life Sciences, Tourism and Cultural and Creative Industries. In filling out the application, it is necessary to include the personal, educational and professional information of all team members, the document containing the Business Plan / Business Model of the project and another containing its Executive Summary. Finally, it is necessary to make sure that you have completed the application flow by confirming the submission, without leaving incomplete drafts that will not be considered in the evaluation phase.

The 17th edition of the competition offers three absolute prizes for the best innovative projects that will be submitted by September 1. The Business Plan that will win the competition will receive a prize of 10,000 euros, the second place 7,500 euros and the third 5,000 euros! There will also be several special prizes, offered by the sponsors of the competition, and that's not all: the first six projects in the ranking will be able to participate in the PNI - National Award for Innovation promoted by PNICube, together with the winners of the other regional Start Cups.

The evaluation phase of the entrepreneurial projects will end in October 2021: the list of finalists will be published online on the competition website. By the end of October, the teams of finalist projects, special prizes and special mentions will be invited to the final award ceremony that will take place at the Polytechnic University of Turin, Italy with a public presentation. The final results and the list of winners will be announced during the ceremony. The 2021 edition of the PNI - National Award for Innovation will instead take place at the University of Rome Tor Vergata and is scheduled for late November.
