The StartYouUp (SYU) association was set up to offer concrete support to students and graduates wishing to approach the business world as designers of an innovative project or in order to put their skills into play.
It also aims to connect the different businesses of the existing local startup ecosystem, bringing them closer to the academic world.
Together with the University of Bologna, it organizes StartUp Day, which in its first three editions involved over 3,000 participants and 446 business ideas.
StartYouUp also organizes the Ignition Program (PdA), which is part of the University of Bologna business strategies, and has the objective of promoting the creation of new startups by transforming simple business ideas into concrete and complete projects. The Program is organized by the University of Bologna in collaboration with the Golinelli Foundation.
