Great news from LUISS ENLABS! Today we launch our Smart Production & Productivity Acceleration Program, a vertical acceleration program dedicated to high-growth digital startups that have a huge impact on the daily operational processes.

We are looking for:

  • digital startups that have at least a working prototype of the product or a validated idea (Minimum Viable Product);

The most promising startups will have the opportunity to access an intensive 5-months path aimed at transforming projects in the early stages of life into companies generating revenues on the market. The program will begin in June 2018 and will take place in Milan, in the new LUISS ENLABS spaces at Milano LUISS Hub.

You will participate in seminars and workshop and you will be supported in business development, investor networking, management, and technology development by a team of experts and a Board of Advisors of over 50 prominent members with various sectoral responsibilities. In addition, you will receive an investment from LVenture Group of 80 thousand Euros, of which 30 thousand in cash and 50 thousand in services, in return for a 9% equity[1].
