The new call for startups of LUISS EnLabs, LVenture Group‘s digital startup accelerator, among the leading ones in Europe, kicks off today. Created from a joint venture with Luiss University and supported by partners Accenture, Intesa Sanpaolo together with Intesa Sanpaolo Innovation Center and Meta, LUISS EnLabs has launched over 130 startups in 20 editions, which have raised 136 million euros (23 million euros invested directly by LVenture Group).
All early-stage digital start-ups with a working prototype (MVP) can apply until 13 November by accessing the accelerationluissenlabs.com website: this is the only chance to access the 2023 edition, the 21st of LUISS EnLabs.
Selected startups will receive a customised pre-seed investment of up to EUR 200,000, also by virtue of the partnership with Lazio Innova, which co-invests with LVenture Group in the accelerated startups ready to operate within the Lazio Region through Innova Venture (the Region’s Venture Capital Fund financed by the European structural funds of the POR FESR 2014/2020).
Access to the LUISS EnLabs Acceleration Programme, which lasts 5 months, also allows startups to tech perks worth 2 million euros such as Amazon Web Services, OVHcloud, Hubspot and Stripe. The selected startups will join the LVenture Group’s ecosystem, a network of strategic partners that includes leading investors and corporates, international advisors, ready to commit also financially, and a network of ‘alumni’ of the more than 130 startups accelerated by LUISS EnLabs.
“Joining LUISS EnLabs means facing a challenging path, which provides founders with all the necessary resources for the startups’ development. The LVenture Group team supports them at 360°, in all the crucial aspects of the business: from product development to branding, marketing, legal aspects, HR management and fundraising. LUISS EnLabs is the acceleration program for ambitious startups that want to grow at a fast pace on the market“, said Giulio Montoli, Head of Pre-Seed Investments at LVenture Group.
To testify the value of LUISS EnLabs, Domenico Crescenzo, CEO of Screevo, an AI startup that enables the voice control of any software. Joining LUISS EnLabs the startup has immediately closed a first pre-seed round with LVenture and the Silicon Valley Fund Boost VC: “The acceleration program exponentially amplifies the opportunities for founders who want to put themselves in the game at 360°. The LVenture team actively supports start-ups, working to meet the needs of each one with tailor-made solutions: you can feel their passion for this world. No one can replace the founders in their daily commitment, but if I had to choose fellow travellers, motivators and guides, I would have no doubts”.
