STEP Call for future 2020

March 11th | May 29th


At STEP Tech Park we are shaping the future of the planet we live in. We want to cut 5 million tons of CO2eq emissions in the next 5 years with the help of your technologies and solutions. Your business success is our success. And above all a success for our planet!


We will select the best 3 start-ups with the product, service or technology with the highest potentiality of carbon reduction in all sectors and the most promising solution.
We are looking for highly committed teams in their projects, on a global scale, who are willing to spend in the Tech Park more than 50% of their time.
We will privilege projects with at least a Minimum Viable Product available.
Projects that contribute, in addition to carbon reduction, to other Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) are strongly encouraged to apply.

What we offer

A highly customized Acceleration Program, free access to our facilities in Treviglio (STEPlab 4.0 | offices | meeting rooms | auditorium), professionals who will concretely lead you to succeed and scale-up.
The Acceleration Program is a path aimed at entrepreneurial growth that will take place in our Tech Park for 6 months starting from June 22nd, 2020.
During the whole process, start-ups, followed by qualified tutors and mentors, will participate in training panels, one-to-one mentorship sessions and networking moments with the top players in your industry and VCs. ​

Why us

We work tirelessly with start-ups as if we were a single team and we share the risk to make their dreams come true.
Each start-up will be accompanied in the product or service improvement by a technical specialist engineer and on the market by a dedicated business developer.
The journey we offer does not require advance payment of any cost.
We ask for a % of the revenue that will be achieved during the first few years, thanks to our work.
This % will be agreed when the start-up joins STEP, at the end of the analysis of the real needs to industrialise the product and the actions to be implemented to break into the market.

... and then?

Your idea will be evaluated according to the following criteria:

– environmental impact
– business potential
– team strength

The best 10 start-ups will be selected for the selection days in June 11th – 12th.
The 3 most talented start-ups will be awarded with the Acceleration program.
