PERIODO: DICEMBRE - GENNAIO
PERIOD: DECEMBER - JANUARY The course aims to develop, in an integrated and interdisciplinary way, individual skills related to the ability to apply results of scientific and technological research, targeting them toward the creation of new business ventures able to create an impact on economy and society. In particular, the course will address fundamental concepts and tools for the assessment of the economic value and market potential of technological innovations. The course will also provide an in-depth discussion of intellectual property rights and the possible options for their economic exploitation. The course is based on a blended approach. It will involve theoretical lectures and on-line materials, case studies as well as presentations by practitioners and startup founders. The course will have a strong emphasis on teamwork. Students will work in multidisciplinary teams on a real business creation case based on a specific patent owned by Politecnico di Torino. Students will learn techniques for patent searching and will apply methods for technology assessment based on patent data mining. Moreover, during the development of their case, the students will conduct research activities for the collection and elaboration of data to assess final market characteristics and to support the strategic planning of the new venture. In the development of their project, students will benefit of feedbacks form the inventors of the specific patents. During the course, the students will master and apply the different dimensions of the business model canvas. There will be intermediate presentations to provide feedbacks on the advancement of the projects. Students will present the final results of their projects to a panel of practitioners that will include entrepreneurs, business angels and institutional investors of financial intermediaries. The course is open to 40 students max. Period from December 2019 to May 2020 Lecture hours 40
Exam The students will propose and present a comprehensive business plan for a new start-up based on a patent owned by Politecnico di Torino. The final report will consist of two main parts: A. a detailed analysis of the patented technology (patent landscape) and of its potential; B. a business plan including a description of the proposed product/services and of its value proposition, the relevant market, the entry strategies, the financial requirements and its staging, final recommendations on how to proceed with funding. Each team will also give a pitch in front of a panel of entrepreneurs, business angels and representatives of financial intermediaries. Participation to Innovation for Change (the joint program with CERN and SAFM/CDI Italia) will be considered equivalent to part (B) and to the final presentation of the exam. Attendance Attendance to lectures is considered compulsory. Intermediate presentations are mandatory in order to successfully complete the course. All the students have to sign an NDA.
