Fondazione Cariplo • Milan
WHAT WE DID IN SHORT
Fondazione Cariplo is one of the most important private organizations funding art and culture in Italy. Innova Cultura is one of their main projects: more than 1.5 million euros are dedicated every year to select, train and finance up to 30 cultural start-ups. To do so, Fondazione Cariplo relies on well-established cultural companies and professionals to share their knowledge with the would-be social entrepreneurs.
For the 2015 edition we participated in the selection committee, helping in identifying the most promising startup ideas to participate in the 9-weeks bootcamp training program at BASE, the most important incubation space in Milan. During the training program InvisibleStudio has been mentoring a specific start-up to help them refining their cultural idea.
The start-up we’ve been mentoring, StreamColors, a digital art studio specialising in the development of real-time software solutions using latest game technologies, has been awarded one of the highest fundings from Fondazione Cariplo at the end of the training program, and is now developing very interesting projects of audience engagement and audience development for museums and companies worldwide.
InvisibleStudio has been a great help for us in the whole project
