Startuppato is back in Turin, northern Italy, on November 24th. The 2016 edition of this networking event focused on the Italian startup scene, will showcase more than 100 innovative projects and services. Startuppato is organised by Treatabit and I3P a top Italian startup incubator founded by the world famous Politecnico di Torino university. I3P ranks among the top EU incubators, supporting startup mostly founded by university researchers and it’s been operating since 1999 with a strong track record: over 187 startup supported, with a 40 mln euros venture capital raised, creating more than 1.400 new jobs.
Startuppato will showcase cutting edge projects trying to reshape several industries: from HoReCa to food and beverage, from the urban mobility to persona stylist services and music production. All the pitches will be held at Toolbox, a major innovation and co-working hub based in Turin.
This edition focuses on the strategic role of technology and digital economy players in making manufacturing processes more sustainable. No waste, for example, with Felfil: a startup making a plastic filament extrusion machine, to allow a cheaper and greener 3D printing for all. The plastic filament used by 3D printers is made from waste materials and pellet, and costs 80% less compared to the average available printing materials.
On November 17th Felfil launched a crowdfunding campaign on Mamacrowd to promote the product and highlight the importance of circular economy in the 3D printing industry. Cleantech and innovation are also the focus of RossiniEnergy startup. This company operates in the energy storage for the solar energy segment, launching its battery-less accumulation system NUVOLA at Startuppato.
Among several other companies trying to reshape the way we manage our freelance activities is Taimwise. It connects supply and demand on a focused network to organise temporary events in trade/retail or artistic fields with total quickness and low costs.
Deesup, then, focused on second hand design. It’s a digital platform that makes design products accessible in a cheap and quality oriented approach, selecting furniture, lighting and living accessories products with a good potential for a second life in a second-hand marketplace. This year Startuppato features a lot of home and design related companies, like CreHome that allows an automated, self-managed home design process with an user friendly innovative system.
Startuppato is home to innovation and young entrepreneurship. We won’t miss it!
