I would like to draw your attention to the European Nanochallenge and Polymerchallenge 2011 – an international business plan competition aimed at identifying and supporting the best, most innovative nanotechnology and polymers startups around the world.

The competition is organised by Intesa Sanpaolo (Italy’s largest bank), Veneto Nanotech (the Italian Cluster of Nanotechnology) and IMAST (the Campania-based Technological District on Polymeric and Composite materials).

Skipso Solutions is the technology platform supporting this great initiative.

 

Each challenge offers the chance to win a 300,000 cash and services award.In addition, for all the shortlisted startups there is the opportunity to take part in a unique end-to-end program that will include the following:
  • Access to an international Investor Roadshow covering European and worldwide locations such as Milan, London, Frankfurt, Paris, New York, San Francisco
  • Widespread media coverage
  • Mentoring services
  • Access to a wide network of partners (business incubators, software corporations, science parks, business coaches) providing key services and resources

The competition is free to join and entries can be submitted by registering on the challenge website. More information on eligibility, selection criteria and submission guidelines are available on the site.

Please note that the deadline for registration is September 23rd  and for submission, September 26th 2011.

I would be most grateful if you could forward this to anyone you think might be interested in participating.
