The Start-up Lab

The Start-up lab

The Start-up Lab is a free training course for early-stage start-up promoted and organized by EIC in collaboration with ICRIOS ( Invernizzi Center for Research on Innovation, Organization, Strategy and entrepreneurship).

Our goal is to transfer a method to validate the business model and understand how to use various market tests to understand whether it is worth investing time and resources in a business project.

The program includes four months of training in our “startup school”. In this period of time entrepreneurs are followed by mentors of recognized level coming from all over Italy, who make their professional skills available to allow them to get the best out of every business idea.

In the 2018 edition (the first at the Politecnico di Torino) important numbers were registered:

  • More than 320 applications for enrollment in the course.
  • Over 1600 unique contacts on our site since the launch of the course;
  • Great media coverage with articles on industry magazines (like Millionaire).
