Replayer winner in the ICT category of SMARTcup Liguria 2020

We are happy indeed enthusiastic! Replayer is the winning project in the ICT & Social Innovation category, the most “crowded” of the 2020 edition of SMARTcup Liguria: in fact, 20 initiatives out of the 44 participants belong to this category.

In the event that took place live on Facebook on 29 October (see the video of the award ceremony), the 15 projects selected at the end of theSMARTcup ACADEMY challenged each other with the method ofelevator pitch, that is, they had to identify themselves in an entrepreneur who, accidentally finding himself in the elevator with an investor, has only a few minutes available to involve him in the company.
Alberto Marchetti, founder of Replayer, was the first finalist to exhibit the entire project in just three minutes: from the idea of creating an instrument that optimizes access to playgrounds and gyms and allows sportspeople to review their actions on the playing field, to improve performance or even just to share them with friends, to the development of tracking software, recording, video composition and integration with the web platform, to conclude with the business model and growth projections.

At the end of the presentation of the competing projects, the international partners took part, the Taiwan’s network of incubators, the European EBN innovation network and the Innoeu platform which also rewarded the projects in the challenge, after which it was time for the assignment of the prizes of the private and public partners of SMARTcup.


In addition to the EBN award, Replayer received four special awards from:

  • GLFC Genova Liguria Film Commission which will put at our disposal the video room of the Cornigliano Videoporto, with one of the largest Green screens in Italy, for the recording of a promotional video of the initiative;
  • Studio Ricci & Partners which will support us with consulting to revise the business plan for the express purpose of helping the search for financing and investors;
  • Wylab – Sports Tech Incubator that will help us grow with a dedicated incubation program;
  • Cultural Association Sintesi.

The other winners of the 2020 edition, in addition to Replayer, are “KFP – KitchenFootPrint”, best project in the Cleantech & Energy category and Kidaria Bioscense “in the Life Science category, while the” ScreenNeuroPharm “project, also in the” Life Science sector, is the absolute winner of this edition.

And now we need to prepare for the national stage, the PNICube to be held on November 30 and December 4, theoretically in Bologna but actually online: the event will be entirely on a digital platform and work has already begun on setting up the “virtual stands” in which, during the Business Match, companies will be able to meet the 60 finalist startups to outline new business and innovation opportunities.

We are proud of our work and even more motivated to continue on the path of growth: to date we have already installed 6 cameras. The goal is to reach the end of 2020 with 2 involved regions and 8 partner clubs and in 2025 cover the entire national territory with about 215 Replayer sports centers.

Keep cheering for us and follow us: we will keep you updated on our participation at the PNI.
