This week, our acceleration team has greeted the new “breed” of startups joining our accelerator for the 5th edition of acceleration program. Six new startups passed through a thorough selection: our teams of accelerator analysts and advisors have screened more than 130 projects received from all over the world and among the startups coming out of InnovActionLab, training program aimed at creating youth entrepreneurship.
Meet six winning startups:

Filo is a small Bluetooth device essential to keep an eye on the people and objects important to you. Using the app, it is possible to verify the position at any moment: it rings when needed to let you find what or who you are looking for.
Tutored permits to organize in few minutes high-quality tutoring for any studying material, from elementary to specialized subjects. On Tutored, the supply and demand of tutoring sevices meet and it is possible to organize individual and group sessions, both online and offline.
Instature is a perfect app to get a real-time foto of any place in the world in only few minutes. When a client sends a request, Instature sends a notice to all the users close to the place requested. Anyone who receives the notice can reply, sending a photo and receiving a compensation.
Makeit Land offers online courses of patchwork, quilting, creative sewing and crochet, organized by a team of professionals. It is possible to purchase high-quality materials necessary for your projects directly on the platform. The platform provides an interactive experience: you can share your progress, interact with the teachers and participate in the workshops with other fans of creativity.
Slapped is the app to launch a challenge – a “slap”- to your friends through a simple video or a photo. The mission is to render social any type of challenge. Slapped begins with registering through Facebook, Twitter or email. After launching the “slap” you can choose between the public (open to all the users) or private (open only to the nominated friends) slap.
The acceleration program lasts five months and aims at a successful exit on the market. During this time, the selected startups will work hard at the accelerator and participate in various training courses. They will get a massive support from advisors, 360º assistance from accelerator team, access to different facilities and, most important, a well-established network of LUISS ENLABS. The course ends up with the Investor Day, an event where all the startups participating in the program present their project to a wide board of investors trying to convince them to sustain it.
An investment of €60k (€30k in facilities and €30k in cash, in return of equity stake) is currently evaluated by LVenture Group, holding of venture capital listed on the MTA managed by Italian Stock Exchange.
We are wishing a good luck and a big success to our newcomers!
