19, 21, 21, 22 September. Four days in our accelerators in Milan, Bologna, Rome, and Catania to kick off TIM #Wcap 2016-2017. Digital Innovation Year – 3 months of acceleration plus 9 months of mentorship and co-working – kicks off with four events to welcome the 26 startups we selected through the Call for Startups earlier this year.

This year’s programme includes a combination of lectures and webinars ran by professionals, the four mentors of Tree and several experts from the TIM team. Amongst the professors intervening in this 2016-2017 edition are Giovanni Di Caro (Planning for Financial Business), Ernesto Belisario (Protecting your Business & IP), Francesca Natali from Metagroup (Funding and Investors) and many others. Furthermore, at the end of the programme, the startups will receive Kauffman's certification.

We will draw on the experience and testimony of TIM #Wcap alumni to enhance the acceleration journey. Among them is Simone di Somma from Innaas, a startup from the #Wcap class of 2014, who will run a module on Sales Management.

Three months packed with meetings, stimuli, content; three months to share experiences and give the projects selected the tools they need to grow and go to market. Digital Innovation Year is officially open. Good luck startups!
