Since 2005 Nanochallenge rewards the best international startup projects in nanotechnology, uncovering breakthrough nanotechnology applications and attracting the best entrepreneurial talents, in order to give them the actual opportunity to create a startup.
Nanochallenge is an international business plan competition organized by Veneto Nanotech, the Italian Cluster of Nanotechnology and, since 2007, by IMAST, Technological District on polymeric and composite materials engineering and structures.
Veneto Nanotech and IMAST aim at attracting the best nanotechnology innovations / polymer-based materials applications and business ideas in the Clusters, offering financial and strategic support to scientists, researchers and entrepreneurs ready to start a real company.
The new entrepreneurs have access to our facilities, labs, instruments and financial network to develop their technologies and products. This helps them speed the development phase and enter the market.
Nanochallenge and Polymerchallenge poses itself as an “entrepreneurship womb” involving important players in the nanotech and advanced polymer-based materials fields, such as talented researchers, phd students, entrepreneurs, mentors, venture capitalists, business angels, in an environment that fosters aspiring business ideas.
