CLab UniCa #05Edition Finale takes place at Teatro Lirico of Cagliari on the 25th March

From 4.30 pm on, Alberto Matano, the 8.00 pm TG1 anchorman, will host the most exctiting startup event of the year! Six startups from CLab UniCa 2017/2018 edition will have seven minutes to present the perfect pitch about their own business ideas. They will have to talk judges into awarding them with prestigious prizes to win!

The official sponsors of the #05 Edition of CLab UniCa are the athletes from Millesport Special Olympics Sardegna association. The testimonials of the promotional campaign, instead, are the CEOs of four successful startups born during the previous editions of the program: Marco Deiosso (Nausdrem), Alessandra Farris (IntendiMe), Sarah Pinna (Little Alienz) and Nicola Usala (Babaiola).

This event, also accessible to deaf people, wants to celebrate diversity. Diversity beyond every sensorial, territorial, educational, cultural and psychophysical boundary. Diversity which creates business, innovation and contamination among different point of views, making them meet.
