The aim of the initiative is to illustrate the methods of participation and the novelties of the 15th edition of the competition, together with its peculiar characteristics, through the testimonies of some of the finalists of the past editions.

Start Cup Puglia is the regional innovation award that offers the opportunity to transform a business idea into a real company, through accompanying activities, project assistance and awards.

After the first phase, which closes on July 5th, in which aspiring startuppers can still request and participate in accompanying sessions with ARTI coaches, from July 11th to September 16th the second phase will be active during which it is possible to apply for Business Plans to the actual competition that ends with the regional final and the award ceremony scheduled for October 13th.

On that occasion the Jury will determine the 4 winners of the competition in the four categories of the competition: Life science – MEDTech; ICT; Cleantech & Energy and Industrial. The 4 winners are entitled to prizes from 3 thousand to 10 thousand euros.

The Start Cup Puglia 2022 also awards two special prizes: a new prize of € 2,000 called "Green and Blue climate change" for the project with the greatest potential for climate change, organized in collaboration with the GEDI Group, media partner of the PNI, and a special prize of € 2,000 to the best project that has finished, or is carrying out,  the path of entrepreneurial accompaniment within the regional intervention "Extraction of Talents", implemented by ARTI.
