EIT ICT Labs Master School students and PhDs students were hosted, on 11 December 2014, by the Trento Co-Location Center for a Start-up event. They had the chance of meeting three young entrepreneurs who won the 50K€ grant of TechPeaks Batch#2.
Olga Pustovalova, data scientist of Diabetes Lab, Francesco Bux from Skipassgo and Lukáš Doležal of Pronto told their start-uppers stories, explaining to students what kind of errors they had to face and which are the best practices to grow a successful start-up.
Know the market, learn as much as you can in few months, keep your ideas simple but, sometimes, dare to be disruptive: these are the most important tips they gave to students. The three young start-uppers were selected between 47 entrepreneurs that came to Trento for the TechPeaks Batch#2.
TechPeaks is a programme of Trento RISE - the organisation that connects several of the major actors in ICT research, education and business in the Trento region collaboration with Trentino Sviluppo. TechPeaks is part of the EIT ICT Labs European entrepreneurial ecosystem.
