Building for tomorrow
Il programma per stimolare progettualità di economia circolare nel Sud Italia attraverso un percorso di educazione all’imprenditorialità sostenibile
What we do
dock3 is the training, incubation and open-innovation program for startups of the Roma Tre University, open to students and researchers and graduates of any university, who want to test their entrepreneurial skills and validate a business project.
We intend to spread the entrepreneurial and innovation culture among students and researchers of Italian universities; contribute to bridging the academy – work gap, strengthening the soft skills necessary to undertake any job; support the development of new innovative business projects; connect the best projects with local and international companies, stimulating open-innovation
In the first 4 months (dock3Training) students, researchers and graduates selected from hundreds of applications from over 50 universities, have the opportunity to form multidisciplinary teams, define and perfect a business idea, validate it on the market and present it to dozens of investors and companies. The best teams that emerged from the previous phase access the second phase, dock3Sprint, the incubation program for another 4 months, which supports startups in the development and pre-sale phase of the product / service.

The voice of the participants
dock3 gave me the opportunity to transform an idea into a real business structure and to enter the Italian innovation circuit. Without dock3 it would not have been possible. It is a path that I would do 1,000 times and to which I really owe a lot
dock3 far exceeded my expectations, it taught me so much in a short time. I didn’t understand what you meant by “the importance of the team” until we started working as a team and I realized that keeping the leadership is not easy.
Anyone with a project, or a project idea, should join dock3!
