WHAT IS THE NAPOLI FINTECH LAB?

The Napoli FinTech Lab is an advanced training laboratory for the study and application of new technologies in the financial sector.

The Lab provides distinctive professional knowledge and skills in the FinTech sector. The interdisciplinary and specialized course is combined with a study-work period dedicated to the realization of open innovation projects or to the development of a business idea or start-up in the FinTech field.

THE LABORATORY

Training courses

The Naples Fintech Lab provides two distinct and articulated paths in different modalities, both with respect to the access modalities and to the proposed activities. The two paths are the following:
  • The open innovation path includes the design and development of fintech projects by the Lab partners;
  • The start-up path includes business ideas incubation activities in collaboration with the Lab partners.

How the workshop works for students

The Open Innovation process consists of the following two phases:
In the first phase (from September to December 2022), selected participants follow a specialized training program on topics such as financial intermediation and fintech, data analysis and technological innovation, innovation management, programming in Python.
In the second phase (January to June 2023), participants are involved in the design and development of real fintech projects, proposed by the lab partners. Students have the opportunity to develop fintech solutions both in terms of design and in terms of the technological-digital dimension, working in teams also composed of the lab partners. At intermediate stages and at the end of the project development phase, the teams present the developed fintech solution to the proposing partner.

How the start-up workshop works

The Start-up process consists of the following two phases:
In the first phase (from September to December 2022), startuppers follow a short training course on business design thinking. The objective of the first phase is to develop a pitch to be presented to the workshop partners. After the presentation of the business idea, the lab partners decide, in consultation with the University, whether to offer an ad hoc incubation program to the startuppers for initiatives of potential interest to them.
In the second phase (from January to June 2023), the start-ups of potential interest to the partners access a customized incubation program. At the end of the second phase incubation program, the start-ups present their final business ideas to the lab partners.

LEARNING EXPERIENCE

What you will learn

The workshop provides a unique learning experience.

Participants in the open innovation course will be able to develop skills in the fintech field and meet important representatives of the industrial, technological and institutional world. They will be able to learn more about new technological paradigms such as blockchain, artificial intelligence, machine learning and data science, as well as methods for the design and development of prototypes such as design thinking. Together with the Lab’s partners, participants in the open innovation path will work in multidisciplinary teams on real fintech projects, aimed at the creation of real working prototypes.

Startuppers participating in the start-up process will have the opportunity to work on their business idea through a training program on business design thinking. The idea will then be presented to the Lab’s partners. The startuppers will then have the opportunity to be incubated by the University, benefiting from the business and technological know-how of the Laboratory’s partners.
