Q: Who’s eligible to join Industrio?
A: Candidates must be 18 years or older, and have an idea, a prototype or existing early stage startup that is innovative
and has the potential to scale. The industrial sectors Industrio focuses on are: mechanics, mechatronics, electronics,
microelectronics and smart systems in all market applications from agro-food, to mobility, health and energy.
Q: Can I apply if I’m not from Italy?
A: Sure! Teams from all over the world apply. We can help you with getting settled into Trento as well.
Q: Can you get us visas?
A: No, however we can help you with this. We will deal with it on case by case basis.
Q. Can I apply as an individual or do I have to have a team?
A.  It is recommended that a team of two or more apply though we will accept individuals. Startups are generally a ‘team
sport’ and in some cases there may be more than one person interested in commercializing the technology. We
strongly recommend that you try and team up with others that are interested and form a team that will become a
startup founding team upon successful acceptance into the program.
Q: If I have a team of cofounders, should we submit one online application or more?
A: Only one application per team is needed but please include personal and contact information for all team members.
Q: Should we open the company in Trentino before applying?
A: No, you are not required to have a company in Trentino or in Italy for applying. If you are admitted to the program,
then you have to open the company in Italy.

Q: I already have funding. Can I still apply?
A: Yes. In your application, please specify the nature of your previous funding.
Q: Will you sign a non-disclosure agreement (NDA)?
A: No. We look at hundreds of business plans each year, we do not sign NDAs. However, we will work with you to find the
balance between understanding your company’s unique advantage without requiring you to divulge proprietary
information. In your application, please avoid disclosing any technical information that you consider to be your "secret
sauce”, but be as clear as possible about your competitive advantage.
Q: Do we have to start a company in Trento for you to invest in us?
A: Yes, we will help you to do that.
Q: Do we need to send in a business plan?
A: No! We want to know who you are. Just fill out the online application here http://www.f6s.com/industrio - that s all we
need!
Q: What is the application process for Industrio?
A: After submitting your online application, here is how the process will take place:
1. Validation: Industrio will evaluate all the applications received according to a process that considers the innovation
potential, the technology and the applicable industry, the market opportunity. Teams passing this first selection will be
invited to a bootcamp that will take place in Trento;
2. Selection: startups taking part to the bootcamp will present their product, work with mentors and get to know
Industrio better. After the bootcamp Industrio will choose the final startups that will participate to the Program and
receive the seed fund;
3. Acceleration: selected startups will start working on their project inside Industrio, will receive a seed fund and will
have complete access to an international network of mentors, entrepreneurs and investors. Let’s rock!

Q: Once I submit my application to Industrio, will I hear from Industrio?
A: Yes. ALL candidates that apply to Industrio will receive an email or telephone call from Industrio within 2 weeks
following the application deadline.
Q: If our team is not selected, will we receive feedback about my idea?
A: Yes. Our team is small however we do the best to give individualized feedback.
Q: If our team is not selected, can we apply again?
A: Absolutely.  Sometimes a rejection is due to the startup being a little too early and without enough traction for our
program.  Whatever the case, we encourage startups to learn why they were not accepted so they can work on those
things and potentially apply again later.
Q: What are the standard Industrio terms?
A: Our standard terms are that startups accepted into Industrio receive initial seed funding of up to €50K (with 15k€ in
cash for team and 35k€ to use for product dev.); 6 months of intense mentoring and expertise from our extensive
network; a dynamic workspace; potential introductions to outside investors and more. Startups receive all of this in
exchange for a max 15% startup stake. After the 6 months acceleration program, it is possible to receive additional
mentoring, support and resources (including office space) from Industrio. That offer is available at Industrio s sole
discretion, and will be determined based on a team s progress during the previous program.

Q: Who are the mentors?
A: We have handpicked our mentors based on their expertise in specific fields. We want to ensure that you get the best
advice throughout the program that will ultimately help you succeed and we are extremely confident that our mentors
will do just that. Take a look at our Mentors page on industrio.co
Q: How much access will we get to the mentors?
A: The mentors will be coming in and out of the space at periodic times. We'll be working on setting up office hours so
everyone can get some one on one time. There will also be opportunities to ping people via email or our forum.
Q: What is the role of the other partnering organizations?
A: As a Industrio firm, you will have access to an extremely wide support system; the available services and tools are listed
in the catalogue.
Q: Where do teams live while they re there?
A: We will certainly provide guidance to help you find a place to stay, but you re mostly on your own with this one. The
good news is you can absolutely count on affordable living in Trentino.
Q: Do the team need to be there for entire time?
A: Yes. We understand there may be last minute unusual circumstances that change things, but you are expected to
spend the 6 months in Trento.
Q: If I am accepted into Industrio, do I need to headquarter my business in Trentino?
A: Yes. If you are accepted into Industrio, the startup that we help you to launch must be headquartered anywhere in
Trentino (we suggest in Trento or Rovereto), and the business must pay all applicable regional taxes.

Q: What stage should do you expect my company to be in at the end of the six months?
A: The program will focus heavily on the concept of a Minimum Viable Product (MVP), prototype and the final product. By
the end of the program we expect you to have boiled your business or product down to its core components, build
them, launch them and begin to integrate feedback from potential and actual customers. Revenue should be a real
possibility if not reality.
Q: Are there any obligations after the program?
A: No. Though we do hope you continue to be an active member of the Industrio alumni group. Even after the program,
the resources of the Industrio are still at your fingertips – including helping you find investors and mentors. You don’t
have to stay in Trento (although we would love you to). Ultimately, we are building a strong community that you are
part of for years to come and hope you are looking for the same thing.
Q: What happens if our company fails?
A: We recognize that not all startup companies succeed. While we want to give you every chance for success, sometimes
market and customer feedback says otherwise. In that case, it’s better that you had the opportunity to find out earlier,
and more cost-effectively, than you might have otherwise. Whatever happens, we believe that your experience at
Industrio will be extremely valuable for your next venture.
Q: Are we required to stay in Trentino after the program?
A: Absolutely not. We advise you to live where you can best realize your business and goals.

Q: Who’s behind this?
A: Meet our team, and see our growing list of amazing partners (www.industrio.co).
Q: How is Industrio different from Angel Investors and VC firms?
A: Most other funding sources have been moving upstream, looking for companies that have at least a beta/prototype, a
business plan, and some structured idea where they are going. We are looking to become involved earlier then that.
We are looking for great ideas and great people and will help develop great companies around them.
Q: Can any of the information about Industrio change?
A: Yes. The information provided on our website and on all other Industrio materials is likely to change. The information
provided represents plans at this point in time.
Q: Why is Industrio based in Trentino?
A: To be small means great things. Trentino is the ideal destination for international business with the high quality of life
and authentic experiences, research and innovation activities. Trentino is a leader in sustainable building and
renewable energy, the cooperative movement and international solidarity with the rich industry heritage.
Q: Help! I was not able to find my answer here!
A: Feel free to email us info@industrio.co to get your question answered. Due to the volume of emails we receive please
be patient with us.

  • 26. 2 6   Q: Who’s eligible to join Industrio? A: Candidates must be 18 years or older, and have an idea, a prototype or existing early stage startup that is innovative and has the potential to scale. The industrial sectors Industrio focuses on are: mechanics, mechatronics, electronics, microelectronics and smart systems in all market applications from agro-food, to mobility, health and energy. Q: Can I apply if I’m not from Italy? A: Sure! Teams from all over the world apply. We can help you with getting settled into Trento as well. Q: Can you get us visas? A: No, however we can help you with this. We will deal with it on case by case basis. Q. Can I apply as an individual or do I have to have a team? A.  It is recommended that a team of two or more apply though we will accept individuals. Startups are generally a ‘team sport’ and in some cases there may be more than one person interested in commercializing the technology. We strongly recommend that you try and team up with others that are interested and form a team that will become a startup founding team upon successful acceptance into the program. Q: If I have a team of cofounders, should we submit one online application or more? A: Only one application per team is needed but please include personal and contact information for all team members. Q: Should we open the company in Trentino before applying? A: No, you are not required to have a company in Trentino or in Italy for applying. If you are admitted to the program, then you have to open the company in Italy. Application /1 FAQ
  • 27. 2 7   Q: I already have funding. Can I still apply? A: Yes. In your application, please specify the nature of your previous funding. Q: Will you sign a non-disclosure agreement (NDA)? A: No. We look at hundreds of business plans each year, we do not sign NDAs. However, we will work with you to find the balance between understanding your company’s unique advantage without requiring you to divulge proprietary information. In your application, please avoid disclosing any technical information that you consider to be your "secret sauce”, but be as clear as possible about your competitive advantage. Q: Do we have to start a company in Trento for you to invest in us? A: Yes, we will help you to do that. Q: Do we need to send in a business plan? A: No! We want to know who you are. Just fill out the online application here http://www.f6s.com/industrio - that s all we need! Q: What is the application process for Industrio? A: After submitting your online application, here is how the process will take place: 1. Validation: Industrio will evaluate all the applications received according to a process that considers the innovation potential, the technology and the applicable industry, the market opportunity. Teams passing this first selection will be invited to a bootcamp that will take place in Trento; 2. Selection: startups taking part to the bootcamp will present their product, work with mentors and get to know Industrio better. After the bootcamp Industrio will choose the final startups that will participate to the Program and receive the seed fund; 3. Acceleration: selected startups will start working on their project inside Industrio, will receive a seed fund and will have complete access to an international network of mentors, entrepreneurs and investors. Let’s rock! Application /2
  • 28. 2 8   Q: Once I submit my application to Industrio, will I hear from Industrio? A: Yes. ALL candidates that apply to Industrio will receive an email or telephone call from Industrio within 2 weeks following the application deadline. Q: If our team is not selected, will we receive feedback about my idea? A: Yes. Our team is small however we do the best to give individualized feedback. Q: If our team is not selected, can we apply again? A: Absolutely.  Sometimes a rejection is due to the startup being a little too early and without enough traction for our program.  Whatever the case, we encourage startups to learn why they were not accepted so they can work on those things and potentially apply again later. Q: What are the standard Industrio terms? A: Our standard terms are that startups accepted into Industrio receive initial seed funding of up to €50K (with 15k€ in cash for team and 35k€ to use for product dev.); 6 months of intense mentoring and expertise from our extensive network; a dynamic workspace; potential introductions to outside investors and more. Startups receive all of this in exchange for a max 15% startup stake. After the 6 months acceleration program, it is possible to receive additional mentoring, support and resources (including office space) from Industrio. That offer is available at Industrio s sole discretion, and will be determined based on a team s progress during the previous program. Application /3
  • 29. 2 9   Q: Who are the mentors? A: We have handpicked our mentors based on their expertise in specific fields. We want to ensure that you get the best advice throughout the program that will ultimately help you succeed and we are extremely confident that our mentors will do just that. Take a look at our Mentors page on industrio.co Q: How much access will we get to the mentors? A: The mentors will be coming in and out of the space at periodic times. We'll be working on setting up office hours so everyone can get some one on one time. There will also be opportunities to ping people via email or our forum. Q: What is the role of the other partnering organizations? A: As a Industrio firm, you will have access to an extremely wide support system; the available services and tools are listed in the catalogue. Q: Where do teams live while they re there? A: We will certainly provide guidance to help you find a place to stay, but you re mostly on your own with this one. The good news is you can absolutely count on affordable living in Trentino. Q: Do the team need to be there for entire time? A: Yes. We understand there may be last minute unusual circumstances that change things, but you are expected to spend the 6 months in Trento. Q: If I am accepted into Industrio, do I need to headquarter my business in Trentino? A: Yes. If you are accepted into Industrio, the startup that we help you to launch must be headquartered anywhere in Trentino (we suggest in Trento or Rovereto), and the business must pay all applicable regional taxes. Program /1
  • 30. 3 0   Q: What stage should do you expect my company to be in at the end of the six months? A: The program will focus heavily on the concept of a Minimum Viable Product (MVP), prototype and the final product. By the end of the program we expect you to have boiled your business or product down to its core components, build them, launch them and begin to integrate feedback from potential and actual customers. Revenue should be a real possibility if not reality. Q: Are there any obligations after the program? A: No. Though we do hope you continue to be an active member of the Industrio alumni group. Even after the program, the resources of the Industrio are still at your fingertips – including helping you find investors and mentors. You don’t have to stay in Trento (although we would love you to). Ultimately, we are building a strong community that you are part of for years to come and hope you are looking for the same thing. Q: What happens if our company fails? A: We recognize that not all startup companies succeed. While we want to give you every chance for success, sometimes market and customer feedback says otherwise. In that case, it’s better that you had the opportunity to find out earlier, and more cost-effectively, than you might have otherwise. Whatever happens, we believe that your experience at Industrio will be extremely valuable for your next venture. Q: Are we required to stay in Trentino after the program? A: Absolutely not. We advise you to live where you can best realize your business and goals. After Program
  • 31. 3 1   Q: Who’s behind this? A: Meet our team, and see our growing list of amazing partners (www.industrio.co). Q: How is Industrio different from Angel Investors and VC firms? A: Most other funding sources have been moving upstream, looking for companies that have at least a beta/prototype, a business plan, and some structured idea where they are going. We are looking to become involved earlier then that. We are looking for great ideas and great people and will help develop great companies around them. Q: Can any of the information about Industrio change? A: Yes. The information provided on our website and on all other Industrio materials is likely to change. The information provided represents plans at this point in time. Q: Why is Industrio based in Trentino? A: To be small means great things. Trentino is the ideal destination for international business with the high quality of life and authentic experiences, research and innovation activities. Trentino is a leader in sustainable building and renewable energy, the cooperative movement and international solidarity with the rich industry heritage. Q: Help! I was not able to find my answer here! A: Feel free to email us info@industrio.co to get your question answered. Due to the volume of emails we receive please be patient with us. General
