High Tech Entrepreneurship
When research meets young talents
HTE is a program where international students have the opportunity to collaborate with the researchers of Istituto Italiano di Tecnologia to create Startups out of innovative technology breakthroughs.
The program's goal is to reframe innovative ideas into a viable business, which will be presented through a pitch at the end of the program.
Sessions, in the format of practical training and lectures, will cover different aspects of starting up a business, from Design Thinking, Business Modelling, Market Assessment, People Management, Money Management, IP Strategy/Patenting and Pitching. While attending the program, each team will be supported by mentors of our Partner, Manager Italia.
The total amount of time required by HTE Workshops is of 7 days.

An innovation makes sense when it meets someone's needs, be it an organization, a company or consumers. Through design thinking, the teams switch their focus from the technology, to people. Design Thinking is the pillar of this process. It is an approach invented at the University of Stanford which is adopted to empathize with the stakeholders through on field research, and to design a solution concept which can truly satisfy people unmet needs.

A leg prosthesis that can perform both passive and active tasks and that is lighter and more compact compared to other active knees on market.
Glass is widely used as a durable material in many applications, from skyscrapers to smartphone screens, however, it develops cracks through time. NANOGLASS repairs glass cracks, regenerating an original surface, with no limitation in terms of surface adhesion and transparency.
Uses immersive virtual reality (VR) to turn motor rehabilitation of patients who experienced a stroke into a game.
a stretchable sensorized insole able to collect and analyze the distribution of pressure over the foot. The analysis of the data allows to avoid mistakes that can lead to injuries, improves athletic performances, creating customized training to reach specific goals, and supports the athletes during recovery.
luxurious skin-care cream with better performances compared to other competitors. It works with a special combination of gold, silver and cooper and provides better skin penetration, long-standing action , it’s intrinsically antimicrobial, it stimulates dermal fibroblast and allows the inhibition of oxidative stress.
MECHANOCHROMIC PRESSURE SENSORS
Mechanochromic pressure sensor for surgical operations: it provides surgeons with a reliable tactile feedback to avoid tissue-damage during intervention. Currently, there are no solutions able to be aware about the force exerted during surgery.
