Get Together – U4I Foundation’s spin offs, together.

Get Together is the first event dedicated to the spin offs of U4I Foundation – University for Innovation. On 3rd of May, from 4:30 p.m. will be the right opportunity to meet live, but also to discuss what Fondazione U4I can do to meet the evolving needs of the spin offs born within the three founding universities: Bergamo, Milano-Bicocca and Pavia (on the Opportunities page of our website the complete list). Francesco Peri, U4I Foundation board member, tells how the idea for Get Together was born: watch the launch video!


The participating spin-offs, distributed in working tables coordinated by U4I facilitators, will elaborate proposals on which the Foundation will reflect: an opportunity also to share experiences, ideas and innovative projects. At the end, space for a networking aperitif.

Here is the afternoon program:

16.30 __ WELCOMING

17.00 __ NICE TO MEET YOU – U4I Foundation tells its story

17.15 __ TABLE TALKS – What can U4l Foundation do for us?

18.00 __ BOTTOM-UP – U4I Foundation in listening

Participation is open to all spin-offs from the University of Bergamo, the University of Milan-Bicocca and the University of Pavia.

“Smart&Start Italia”: incentives for innovative start-ups in a webinar with Invitalia

A webinar organised by Fondazione U4I in collaboration with Invitalia dedicated to innovative start-ups is scheduled for Friday 11 March, from 2 to 3.30 pm.

The focus of the meeting is Smart&Start Italia, the tool managed by Invitalia and promoted at national level to support the birth and growth of innovative start-ups.

The ideal opportunity, for those who have recently started or intend to start a new entrepreneurial venture with a strong focus on innovation, to learn how this tool works, who can access funding, and how to submit the relevant application correctly.

Invitalia is the National Agency for Development, owned by the Ministry of the Economy: it boosts the country’s economic growth, focuses on strategic sectors for development and employment, is involved in the revitalisation of crisis areas, and manages all the national incentives that encourage the creation of new businesses, especially in innovative and high value-added sectors. To date, 1,295 innovative start-ups have been financed by the Agency with the Smart&Start Italia incentive (figure updated to 1 February 2022).

Fabio Comi, business analyst at Invitalia, will illustrate the potential of Smart&Start Italia.

The afternoon will be introduced by Hermes Giberti, CEO of Fondazione U4I – University For Innovation.

Participation in the webinar is free. Here is the registration link.
