Power2Innovate, the Cogipower project dedicated to young entrepreneurs in Southern Italy, is making its debut in Naples on Friday, September 25th from 10 am to 1 pm at Castel dell’Ovo. It was the first informational event for all those interested in opening their own business starting from an innovative idea involving the agrifood, ICT or energy sectors.
Taking part in the event: Alessandro Barbano (Editor-in-Chief, Il Mattino), Mimmo Costanzo (CEO, Cogipower), Davide Dattoli (Founder, Talent Garden), Riccardo Luna (Digital Champion), Carlo Mammola (Managing Partner, Argan Capital) and Luigi Nicolais (President, CNR). Also participating: CEOs from a number of successful start-ups from Southern Italy.
The goal of the Power2Innovate project, conceived by Cogipower in collaboration with the Fondazione del Merito and The European House – Ambrosetti, is to bring together the most dynamic forces in the “Mezzogiorno”— the South of Italy, concentrating attention on three themes: energy, agri-business and ICT.
Working with it are a number of advisors, including Riccardo Luna, Davide Dattoli and Massimiliano Magrini, and it will offer a calendar of events aimed at developing an entrepreneurial culture in Southern Italy.
Power2Innovate has also launched a Call for Ideas – closing date October 31st – to find the best entrepreneurial ideas in sectors that are key for the development of Italy’s south. The three winners will receive a cash prize of 10,000 euros and participation in the 2016 “Leader del Futuro” program of The European House – Ambrosetti, as well as mentoring from Cogipower managers.
The Naples event was visible in live streaming from the offices of Impact-Hub Bari, C-Lab Reggio Calabria, C-Lab Catania and C-Lab Cagliari.
