A startup that goes faster, that matches sports and technology, that breaks all the records. This is the ideal candidate for the new edition of SPIN Accelerator, the world-biggest sports startups accelerator, promoted by Trentino Sviluppo in collaboration with Hype Sports Innovation and the University of Trento.
The initative, at its second edition, in 2018 counted 65 participants amongst Italian but also American, Israeli, Austrian and Spanish startuppers. The 24 selected teams underwent 130 training hours with 30 international-level coaches and mentors. SPIN Accelerator Italy helped them to grow in the sport-tech field, developing technologies such as sensors for the improvement of skiing skills, gamificated rehabilitation, VR hockey and more.
Headquarter of the initiative is Progetto Manifattura, the green-tech hub of Trentino Sviluppo in Rovereto. There, selected startups will experience a 4-week free incubation path with a personalized mentorship, free access to top-notch laboratories and specialized training. The winner, selected during a demo day in which a number of investors will participate, will receive a 10 thousand euros prize to be spent on the services provided by Progetto Manifattura.
