Startup Tales is a webinar series made up of 5 meetings of one hour each, which will start on January 14th and end on February 4th

In each meeting several guests working in the startup fields and from different points of view will take part and will present their activities.

There will be (guests working in) start-ups with social impact, others working in the law field, in the tech industry, in the cognitive sciences one and finally in the biotechnology industry. 

The purpose of these webinars is to bring university students closer to the entrepreneurship and start-ups world and to dispel the myths concerning it. Such as, for example, that starting your own project (is something far away from certain fields or that) is only bound to the technological field.

Guests will demonstrate through their experience that this and other myths are not true and that therefore anyone is able to create a real company from their own ideas. 

These webinars are organized in view of the application for the new edition of Start-Up Lab, which is the course where  you can learn how to transform your idea into a business project, in multidisciplinary  teams and with a concrete approach. 

Startup Tales, as well as Start-Up Lab, are aimed at master’s and PhD students, researchers, but also to all other people interested in them.

The webinars registration is free and can be done on the CLab Trento website. Further information on webinars and guests can be found on the event description.
