WHO WE ARE WE LOOKING FOR
We are looking for people with an unfair advantage, be it entrepreneurial or technical, who are eager to put their skin in the game.

PROGRAM (Feb-Jun 2022)
30 participants divided into 10 teams
We will select the 30 most brilliant minds to join Vento and create amazing teams. We will consider personality, hard and soft skills, background, and so on to make sure you are the best fit.
10 challenges one for each team
During the first week you’ll get to know all the cohort participants and deepen the challenges; teams will be formed from this moment on. Throughout the program there will be lectures and teamwork, with mentors, experts, and an office at your disposal.
Leading industry players will launch challenges coming from their direct experience. This way we will make sure that each team will have a validated problem to start from.
4-months full-time program
Each team will go through a journey of research, design, test and implementation. Get ready for some crazy fast-paced rollercoaster of emotions, and then at the end of the ride your startup will take off.
By the end of the program each team will have developed an early stage startup, tested, ready to collect a seed round, complete with pitch and prototype.
Finally, you will pitch in front of the most prominent investors of the Italian ecosystem.
After 4 months of hard work, each team will have the chance to present what they have developed in front of VCs, angels, accelerators and so on. The goal is to be able to attract their interest and set up a follow up meeting in order to collect a seed round. Moreover, 250.000€ in grants will be provided by Compagnia di San Paolo to the most promising teams. Just in case you are wondering, we will never ask you any equity or success fee, we are a non-profit organization and our revenue is your success
