26th August 2012 is the NEW deadline for entering Nanochallenge & Polymerchallenge 2012. 600.000euro are at stake for the best business ideas in nanotechnology and polymer-based materials

(Padua/Naples – 19 July 2012) As a result of the numerous requests of postponement and in order to allow a broader number of participants to take part, the NEW deadline to join the Nanochallenge & Polymerchallenge is August 26th.

Teams who have already submitted their Executive Summaries, do not have to submit their proposals again.

Two seed financing prizes of 300.000€ each are available for the eighth edition of Nanochallenge and Polymerchallenge, the international business plan competition that aims to fund the best startups in nanotechnology and advanced materials. The initiative is organised by Veneto Nanotech, the Italian cluster of nanotechnology and IMAST, the Italian Technological District on Polymeric and Composite Materials Engineering and Structures. Intesa Sanpaolo, the leading Italian bank, is co-organizer of the business plan competition and will support the teams with consultancy and support in innovative startup creation.

Registration is free through the online form. A short Executive Summary (please download the format from the official website, Download Area) is requested. The international competition is open to teams including at least two people, that must submit their business proposal by August 26th, 2012 for the first screening by the scientific jury.
