The second call for 2021 startups of LUISS EnLabs, the Acceleration Program of LVenture Group born from a joint venture with Luiss University and supported by Accenture, Facebook and Sara Assicurazioni, opened today. All early stage digital startups with the ambition to scale rapidly on the market can apply until September 27 directly online at the following website: accelerationluissenlabs.com.
Selected startups will receive a pre-seed investment of up to 200 thousand euros, also on the strength of the partnership with Lazio Innova, which co-invests with LVenture Group in the accelerated startups ready to operate within the territory of the Lazio Region through Innova Venture.
LUISS EnLabs provides a 5-month path, with over 30 hours of training in 17 specific workshops, and a tight planning according to the scrum methodology to refine the business model and make it scalable. LVenture Group supports startups at 360° thanks to its “Full-Stack” approach, providing its team of over 40 professionals with vertical competences in the main strategic areas for their growth: from product development to branding, marketing, legal aspects, HR management and fundraising. LVenture Group will be able to invest up to 500,000 euros in the subsequent phases in startups that successfully conclude the Acceleration Program.
“We are ready to select startups with digital solutions, with a focus on sectors such as fintech, edtech, or hospitality, that adopt impactful technologies such as artificial intelligence to meet the challenges that the future holds. Our Acceleration Program puts Founders at the center, offering them all the strategic support they need to succeed in the market and giving a concrete impulse to their growth“, says Giulio Montoli, Head of Acceleration at LVenture Group.
Andrea Chirolli, CEO of Futura, an edtech startup graduated in the last edition of the program, which ended last May, testifies the validity of LVenture Group’s Acceleration Program: “The Acceleration Program gave us all the tools to standardize our processes and focus on growth. It gave us the opportunity to experiment and obtain, in a few months, results that we planned to achieve in a year. Thanks to the support of the LVenture team, we have improved our acquisition processes and grown exponentially, by 600%”.
To further support the development path of the selected startups, the Program provides them with a package of “Tech Perks”, facilities for access to digital services and credits for a value of 2 million euros, with partners such as Amazon Web Services, OVHcloud, Hubspot and Stripe. The startups will also have access to LVenture Group’s ecosystem, where they will be able to confront themselves with a network of over 50 Advisors, CEOs in European scaleups, entrepreneurs and managers ready to make a financial commitment and with the vast network of alumni, founders of the over 120 startups that participated in a previous edition of the Acceleration Program.
