Deadline: January, 31st 2012 at 6.00 PM
The competition is open to young people aged under 35 proposing a “cultural business idea” whose aim is the creation of a startup company with a clear focus on culture and creativity in the Mediterranean region.
A selected jury composed by academics and professionals will evaluate the best proposals and will choose the winning one, which will have free access to The Hub incubator services in Milan to develop its venture.
With the Nausicaa Lab competition, Il Tamarindo wants to give concrete support to the creative energies of the new Mediterranean generations, rewarding entrepreneurial ideas that can generate business opportunities at the same time, stimulating cultural activities and creating synergies between the different countries of the Mediterranean region.
The first edition of the Nausicaa Lab competition is linked to the Milanese territory and aims at bringing new inputs to the economic and cultural development of the area. This will contribute to define a strong identity for the creative ventures; to build a network of cultural entrepreneurship; and to strengthen the ties between the Milan area and the Mediterranean countries in the field of cultural business, leveraging the influence of Milan as a node of excellence in a global network of creative industries and in the cultural field, and the role of cultural districts in Lombardy.
Participating to the competition is free of charge.
