USI Startup Centre

Date: 2 December 2021 / 18:30

Palazzo dei Congressi, Lugano

On Thursday, 2 December, starting at 6:30 pm, the Palazzo dei Congressi in Lugano will host the Award Ceremony of the 2021 Boldbrain Startup Challenge.

The ten finalist teams, selected by the Regional Jury (whose vote is expected for 19 November), will present their projects to win one of the five final prizes plus the special prize awarded by the audience, for a total amount of 200.000 Swiss francs.

After the official opening of the evening, featuring a speech by State Councillor Christian Vitta, the ten finalist projects will be called onto the stage for a final pitch and will compete for the prize awarded by the “popular jury” formed by the 500 spectators attending the event.

While waiting for the outcome of the vote, the entrepreneur Matteo Boffa – recently included by Forbes in the prestigious list of the 30 best U30 entrepreneurs in the Middle East – will join the event from Dubai. This will be followed by the awards ceremony and, finally, an aperitif will conclude the evening, giving spectators and competitors the opportunity to interact in an informal setting.

To attend the event, you must register here by 25 November.

Please note: a Covid Certificate and ID will be required to enter Palazzo dei Congressi.
