1 THE INCUBATOR OF BOLOGNA S UNIVERSITY Dott.ssa Sabrina Morbidelli
2 Mission AlmaCube is the Incubator of the University of Bologna, founded jointly with Cassa di Risparmio in Bologna Foundation and Alma Mater Foundation to promote and sustain entrepreneurship in the local University system; AlmaCube is strictly linked and connected with the StartCup business plan competition, AlmaCube does not participate financially in the start-ups hosted, but actively promotes and facilitate funding contacts and processes with professional investors.
3 Start Cup Start Cup is the first example in Italy of competition between innovative entrepreneurial ideas based on high technological or high knowledge contents. The businesses plans elaborated by one or more people can take part in the Practice but their entrepreneurial ideas have to be innovative and high technological based.
4 Start Cup 2008 Start Cup 2008 take place in June and finish in October. It foresees several training courses on strategic planning, marketing and finance, which will allow to the participants to draw up an articulated business plan of their entrepreneurial ideas. For the first two entrepreneurial projects in Bologna and in Imola, Start Cup will give a contribution of euro to the first classified and for the second classified. The money will be give only if the winners will constitute effectively the firm within at least 6 months later the Practice and if the location of the office is on the territory of Bologna. The winners can also take advantage of the AlmaCube incubation services. The 3 best projects will take part in the Italian National Prize for the innovation.
5 Target AlmaCube can host 17 new technology based startups, a preferred evaluation is given to University originated projects. Other projects, however, will be considered as well. AlmaCube hosts the initial phases of the start-up process, but cannot host any production related activity or, more generally, the expansion of the business. The presence in the incubator is initially limited to one year, with possible extension for another year under the discretional judgement of the Steering Committee. AlmaCube does not focus on a specific industry or technological field to sustain the multiple disciplines of excellence of the University of Bologna. In any case, to enter Almacube the applicants must have incorporated or be in the processes of incorporating a new company.

The StartCup finalists become an incubate directly, Local high-tech firms have to send us a copy of the Business Plan. Prof. Gianni Lorenzoni, as Chairman of AlmaCube, will distribute the Business Plan to the members of the Steering Committee who will then formulate their binding recommendation within 30 days.
