“These are two great examples of what the Italian research system has to offer the world” says Alberto, who is the Intel Business Challenge Associate for Italy “and I am very pleased that we went from two Italian applications two years ago to 8 finalists and 2 winners!”

Scuola Sant’Anna and Intel Italia have worked together in the promotion of this business challenge and Intel supported the national finals of Start-Cup.

May 15th. The finalists of the European Round of the Intel Business Challenge have been announced. A Great result for Italy. 8 of the 23 finalists admitted to the selection round in Irland are Italian teams, with iRC and WIB in 2nd and 3rd place! “I am very pleased with this result” says Alberto, who is the Country Affiliate for Italy for the competition “this year we really focused on quality rather than quantity of applicants, and my work was indeed facilitated by a super Italian selection committee!” On with the competition then… Out of these finalists 23 will make it to California.

PISA, March 5th. We are proud to announce the selection of the Italian business plans that will advance to the Second Round of the European Intel Business Challenge.
In the next few weeks these entrepreneurial groups will have the opportunities to go through an online mentoring program that will help them to work on their business plans, and will compete for a spot at the European Finals in Dublin in June (17th – 20th).

Approximately 100 business plans were submitted and evaluated by a group of experts, and each business plan received the evaluation of at least 3 judges.
The road to the California finals at U.C. Berkeley is still a long one, but we are confident that the following ideas and projects offer a high quality snapshot of innovation and entrepreneurship in Italy.

The Italian Dream Team will fight hard and intensively to deserve the attention of the selected VCs, investors, and managers Intel will involve in the selection process. Given the high number of submissions received, and the good quality of the business plans, the Italian Country Associate of the Intel Business Challenge, together with Intel Corporate Affairs have decided to nominate, together with 15 winners of the first round a list of “runner ups”.
