What about a last Startup Grind event in Turin before the summer break?
For the third event we will host Matteo Di Pascale from UXBox: he is a multidisciplinary creative, UI/UX designer, mentor and Kickstarter Specialist with experiences in Italy, China and the Netherlands. Come and don't miss the opportunity to enjoy a fireside chat about innovation, personal development and creativity.
Doors will open at 6:30 PM, so that everyone can join after work. At 7:15 PM we will start to talk with Matteo about his professional journey and his experiences around the world.
Afterwards, a networking aperitivo will be offered in order to facilitate the interactions amongst participants. The event will be held in Italian.
Topics we will cover during the interview (AKA reasons why you cannot miss it!):
✅ Kickstarter: Matteo has successfully launched two different projects thanks to this platform; we'll ask him to share his pro tips for creating awesome campaigns that everybody loves!
✅ Personal Development & Creativity: Intuiti (https://goo.gl/bMXXYr) and Fabula (https://goo.gl/ex5RfQ) are some of Matteo's most successful projects and are designed to help people unleash their creativity. If you suffer from the "blank page" syndrome with your startup, the speaker might show you a couple of quick fixes for that.
✅ UI/UX Design: UI/UX are fundamentals aspects for emerging startups (does Airbnb ring a bell?) and we are very lucky to have a great expert like Matteo sharing his vision on the topic. He worked as UI/UX Designer and Art Director in different companies and his last gig, UXBox (https://goo.gl/Z3CIEq), is an online bootcamp for becoming a UX Designer.
✅ China: Matteo has also worked as Senior UI/UX Designer in OnePlus, one of China's hottest startups. We'll try to make a comparison between Italy and China, in order to have a quick brainstorming session about the opportunities that the country can offer to Italian startups.
Do you want more?
- More than 70 participants from the local startup scene: developers, CEOs, investors, journalists, professionals and students happy to meet like-minded people in the amazing venue of Rinascimenti Sociali.

Fair enough? See you on 29/6!
Dopo il liceo ero terribilmente indeciso tra matematica e filosofia. Alla fine ho scelto Design e, ancora adesso, non so se pentirmi.
Uno dei miei migliori amici, che all’epoca dell’università viveva con me, mi disse che avevo fatto bene, perché Comunicazione, Marketing e Pubblicità sono le nuove chiavi di lettura del mondo. A volte sorrido e decido di credergli. Altre volte penso sia tutta fuffa.
Con il mio percorso ho fatto più cose di quelle che credevo: ho lavorato in agenzie a Milano, Amsterdam, Torino e Shenzhen (sì, in Cina!), sono stato fondatore di 3 startup, ho lanciato con successo 2 campagne Kickstarter, progettato tool per la creatività, scritto 4 libri, imparato il Public Speaking, condotto sessioni di coaching in azienda, insegnato la UX a studenti in tutta Europa.
Che sia tutta fuffa? Me lo chiedo ancora.
