SEI TORINO FORUM: two days devoted to deep-tech, entrepreneurship and international experts.

sei torino forum1

SEI Torino Forum was founded in 2018 on the initiative of SEI. The goal was ambitious: to gather the most promising deep tech entrepreneurs in Europe and to push them to think big and create successful businesses.

So the appointment is renewed this year, on June 27th and 28th, always here in Turin.

The first edition of the SEI Torino Forum

Last year the event was attended by important guests, such as Peter Thiel (Paypal), Xavier Niel (Iliad), Matt Cohler (Benchmark), Reid Hoffmann (LinkedIn) and Alex Karp (Palantir Tech).

You can watch what happened last year in a short summary here.

This year we raised the bar: first of all, the event will be an integral part of the Italian Tech Week. Secondly, we decided to make the forum a bit more mentoring and learning focussed: entrepreneurs will spend the entire 27th afternoon together with experts.

The first day of the Forum

On June 27th the Forum is private and behind closed doors. In fact, the event is specifically designed for a selection of 60 unusually ambitious and visionary deep-tech entrepreneurs. How were they selected? These people come from the top 30 European universities and technology accelerators. Moreover, these entrepreneurs will have the incredible opportunity to be mentored and advised by experienced investors and serial entrepreneurs.

Partecipants and mentors

Any information about the participants? The program is confidential, but we can give you some previews. They are mainly from bio-tech and AI world; the rest is a mix of Aerospace, Quantum Tech, etc. Around 20 countries are represented, with most coming from UK, Germany, France, Switzerland & Israel, but also the other countries are well represented.  The list of our mentors and speakers attending the forum can be found here.

The second appointment will be held at OGR

Do not despair for not being among the top 60 deep tech entrepreneurs invited! The doors of our forum will open to the public on the second day in the OGR SEI Torino Forum. Students, entrepreneurs, Pioneers and investors will be mustered at the OGR to experience a whole day dedicated to technology, Europe and inspiration.

Very soon we will present you some of our attending entrepreneurs, mentors and speakers.
