The Spring 2014 call will be a special one and we have very high expectations: we want to leverage the expertise of the SMB entrepreneurs in combining craftsmanship and design, scaling this huge knowledge base with the help of technology.

Design
Technologies exploiting the craftsmanship excellence rooted in many manufacturing businesses, either small and big ones.

3d printing
Fast prototyping is here. Fast production is here. How can we build value on top of that technology stack, both from a manufacturing and online services standpoint, from production to distribution (i.e. Shapeways).

Fashion
Think of it broadly, it’s not just about clothes: a wearable device is fashion; a sensitive fabric is fashion. How can we combine the high end traditional expertise with the connected world?

Tourism
We are interested in tools increasing the incoming tourism flow, enhancing the tourist’s experience and strengthening the overall touristic infrastructure in our Country.

We have one of the most vast cultural heritage in the world and welcome every year 46 million tourists, but we still have huge margins to improve our “marketing” as a Country.

Food
This is the most wide-spread know-how available, coming from every niche produce, every local tradition, every hidden drawer full of secret recipes: that knowledge base may be applied to the foodies as well as to the well-being space in general terms, as a direct food-related business (e-commerce) or as a tool to build awareness and education around the sustainability of the industry.

Home Automation
Our smartphone, our appliances, our home are increasingly becoming “connected”, as a matter of fact.
We Italians didn’t invent the Internet of Things, but we do have the global leaders in the automation system space: CAME, NICE, FAAC, DITEC. Let’s build products and services on top of that ecosystem.

PLEASE take these as broad categories, not silos. Be creative and mix them up with your perspective.
