During the press conference the 10 winning projects for the Changemakers initiative were presented.
From nanotechnology converting citrus waste into raw material for textiles to augmented reality for visiting inaccessible sites: these are just two of the business ideas destined to change the lives of 10 million people.

Changemakers is an enterprise acceleration programme linked to the challenges of Expo Milano 2015 aimed at talented young people under 30 who want to change the world.

It is an initiative supported by Telecom Italia and Expo Milano 2015, “powered by” Make a Cube3 .

The ten best startup projects will join a managerial mentoring programme.
This programme starts with a residential laboratory to be held in Milan in March and April 2013.
During this time, the selected changemakers will have access to the experience of 16 instructors and 50 mentors – experts, professionals, managers and creative people with acknowledged skills in their field.
At the end of the acceleration period, the most innovative and scalable projects will be presented to a panel of potential investors and business partners.
