On January the 22nd, IPN hosted the kick-off session of the 13 Portuguese projects approved in project SOUL-FI’s first call. These 13 projects are a result of the first Round A cut-off date, in which a grand total of 49 projects were awarded across Europe. They are going to be granted 10.000€ for the development and validation of their projects’ business model by implementation of a proof of concept, as well as specialized tutoring provided by a dedicated SOUL-FI team member. Through the session each of the teams had the opportunity of presenting their project to the other participants, and get to know IPN’s SOUL-FI team, which will guide them through the next three months, in the acceleration program designed for this Round A.

On February the 5th, Foundation for Research and Innovation of the University of Florence hosted the kick-off session of the 6 Italian awarded projects, SOUL-FI’s Round A1. All the participants presented, by means of a pitch, their business and the winning design of the call. Some of them were present n person and other via Skype. It was a good opportunity to get to know the Italian team, relate to them and begin the acceleration program, through the services of tutoring, mentoring and coaching included in Soul FI Project.
