University Startup Challenge

The first University Startup Challenge in Milan

E-Club, a student union based in PoliMi and Bocconi, and this year also in collaboration with UniMi & JECoMM, welcomes you to their annual Start-Up Challenge. Featuring more than 200 students, the initiative will aim to develop new ideas in the Sustainable Energy field.

The participants, divided into groups of 4 to 6 people, will try to solve a challenge given by one of their partner companies: at the end of the contest, the groups will come up with a new Start-Up idea!

Enrollments are open until March 1st.

March 24th – 25th at Bocconi University

March 31st – April 1st at PoliMi University


This year, we want to bring together students from different backgrounds to develop innovative entrepreneurial projects in the Energy field.

What we’re gonna do during the event?

The challenge will start on March 24th, with the presentation of the partner companies, the main goals of the challenge and a workshop session with some important representative of the Italian entrepreneurship. On March 25th the partner companies will present their goals and introduce their challenge to the participants.

From March 25th to March 31st, the participants will develop their Start-Up ideas. On April 1st, a jury of experts in the energy field will judge the originality of the ideas and their execution; lastly, the winning groups will be awarded.
