SmartFluidPower participated in ‘Cambiamenti OFF 2022’, a meeting dedicated to innovative startups looking for partners and investors.
Startups, innovative companies and entrepreneurs met with CNA on June 28, at the Loris Malaguzzi International Center in Reggio Emilia. During the morning, the 19 selected startups from all over Emilia-Romagna presented their business ideas to a pool of lenders, investors and business angels, as well as many entrepreneurs interested in contamination.
At the end of all the presentations, the discussion continued during ‘Eat to Meet’, a lunch designed to stimulate knowledge and comparison: during the 3-course meal, the 3 “rounds of the table” allowed participants to talk to as many people as possible.
Our objective was making ourselves known on a national scale and getting in touch with the many prestigious partners of the initiative. In our application, we had described our products and services, the business model, the target market identified and the strategic plan adopted. That included short term objectives, along with the tools we selected to enhance our offering and to grow our team and know-how.
In the first part of the event, we presented our 3-minute elevator pitch. We defined the business idea behind the project, and represented the key aspects of the startup, creating curiosity and interest among possible investors. In the final part of the day, we had the opportunity to interact with the other participants, going into the details of our project with interested investors, and receiving valuable suggestions on some future strategic and organizational solutions.
The main objective of the event was to improve the competitive system of the territory, by making innovative startups collaborate with more traditional organizations. For us, it has definitely succeeded in creating relationships within the CNA system, by bringing together different companies with possible investors and other entrepreneurs from different industries.
