If you want to create your own start-up company, the first step toward success is to present your business idea. Indeed, you have to learn how to present your start-up project to prospective clients and investors. Moreover, the exchange of points of view can be very useful to highlight new threats and opportunities you might not have noticed before.
For these reasons, if you are a prospective start-upper, StartuppaMI is an event you should not miss.
At StartuppaMI you are given 3 minutes to present your pitch, and 7 minutes to be asked questions about your business ideas by a specialised audience, made of start-uppers, experts and potential investors: at the end of every presentation, the start-ups are voted by the audience which gives a feedback to the start-ups presented. The informal atmosphere and the underground style which characterise StartuppaMI – which is a BYOB (Bring Your Own Beverages) event – make it an unique event, which can represent a first testing ground for novice start-uppers, very useful to prepare for more formal presentations.
The serial start-upper entrepreneur Marco Ottolini successfully brought this format from United Kingdom to Milan: indeed, the event of 24th of April was the 5th StartuppaMI, where a panel of selected start-ups, challenging the the bad weather, presented their pitches.
Before the presentations, Claudio Erba, CEO and founder at Docebo, had a speech about his start-upper’s successful experience, an useful lesson in order to learn which are the mistakes should not make when you want while carrying out the fund raising from venture capital investors and business angels.
In conclusion, StartuppaMI is a crucial event for those who want to become a start-upper, as well as for curious people who want to learn something about start-ups, to do networking and feel the friendly and informal atmosphere of an event for start-uppers, the most suitable environment to stimulate innovation!
