    Here we are to select students from Torino Universities to attend  the SVST August 2019. The selection will be made according the discussion here and yr Linkedin page within April 2019.

    The next Tour will be the first for Students , managers and entrepreneurs.

    After years of distinct Tours we understood that mixing the age and experience of attendees is a great value for both.

    We’ll promote this Tour starting from October 12th talk in Torino University, of Ousmane Diakite IT student and web developer,  attendee of SVST 2018.

    The goal of SVST2019 is to multiply the SVST 2018 effects that we can synthetise as follow:

    1- 37 attendees students in Italian Universities coming from 8 different countries, with 16 female the largest number ever.

    2 – Three month  interships  each,  after the SVST,  for 3 Business students from Trento University- Stefania Tibiletti-  in Cloud4wi ,  and Piemonte Orientale University-Claudio De Santis and Andrea Re in A3-Cube

    3- Mix  students with managers and professionals attending together the Tour, to extend the effect seen in August 2018 among  Generale Francesco Vestito, Head of Cyber Security task of Ministero della Difesa and Captain Giuseppe Cannatà- the minds and arm of Cyber Range in progress in Chiavari- Luca Barigione manager of Postel in Genova, attending the Tour with University students. Great mentorship of the senior attendees to the juniors happened during the Tour.

    4- Five Meetings  in Italy after the Tours, early September,  among Silicon Valley company CEO ( Peaxy, Hytrust) and companies like Ansaldo Energia, ABB, Cetena. This in the frame of improving Italy- Silicon Valley relations for business.

    5- A book ” Tra Italia e Silicon Valley. I migranti tech dal 2000 al 2018″ written by 60 Italians in Silicon Valley to tell their story. The book will be given before the Tour to the attendees  of SVST 2019, as an unique information base.

    Are you a student or a manager entrepreneur interested to join the SVST 2019 Tour?

    introduce yourself here!

    We are happy to launch this discussion Forum with the report written by Pavia University student Lara Princivalle, from Borgosesia,  great attendee of SVST 2015, now working in Milano, Samsung AI

    Finally  what the attendee Fabio Vantaggiato  from Varallo Sesia, Business Grad of Milano Bicocca University kept from the experience.


    Hello everyone, my name is Mavy and I was a participant in svst 2016 and co guide in svst 2017. Yesterday I attended the presentation of your colleague who participated in Svst 2018 and I agree<span class=”Apple-converted-space”>  </span>with him.

    I was passionate about the SV already before participating in the tour, but the tour has completely changed my life. And when I came back, I revolutionized all my plans. The things you know, the people you meet, hosts and participants included, leave a mark and encourage you to do everything to do your best to achieve the profession you choose. In the full mood of failure and therefore knowing that not a few attempts will be enough and that probably many of these will go wrong, but with the perseverance and the experience that only the failure can give you find, I’m sure you’ll be able to create your path. Silicon Valley is an environment where so many brains mix up to create ideas that can improve the world and people’s lives. And now it’s up to you, understand if you want to embark on this journey and get to know closely where every day they work to make science fiction movies the reality.

    I leave you a cue of reflection respect to this article:

    How do you think about? Let’s start the discussion!

    Hi everybody!

    I’m Lorenzo Daidone, I attended the Silicon Valley Study Tour this summer. This experience changed my life and my career.
    I would like to share with you my crowdfunding story. When I was selected to partecipate in the experience I was really excited but I wasn’t able to pay it…but in the end I went to California!

    For many of you the crowdfunding way could be a good opportunity.

    How did I do? Find out more at:



    I am Annila Munsaf. I am a refugee in Torino. I am basically from Pakistan. I am doing Diploma in Web and App Development from ITS Torino, which is a two year course. I am in the final year and recently I won Erasmus+ Traineeship and from  mid or end of February to May I will be doing internship abroad in EU (Country maybe Berlin, Luxembourg or Sweden). Moreover, I am also completing Bachelor in Computer Science from University of the People.

    It is my dream to visit Silicon Valley as it is a hub of Entrepreneurs and tech companies. I believe that the this study tour  is a prodigious fit for both my academic and professional goals. Participating in this program will develop and strengthen my interpersonal skills and will help me to grow professionally.

    In my life, there were several ups and down but I struggle for my career and I am still struggling to make my dreams happen. I want to become a Entrepreneur and want to gain more motivation with this opportunity.  I am also passionate about Mobile App Development and I am still learning.  Moreover, I love experiencing different cultures and different and love travelling.
