STUDENT ENTREPRENEURSHIP: SANT’ANNA PHD STUDENT INVITED SPEAKER AT THE ALMALAUREA CONFERENCE, ON HIS LEADERSHIP EXPERIENCE IN START-UP ALES TECH, PARMA, MAY 16, 2017

Antonio Davola, second year PhD student in Law and Technology, the founder of the start up Ales Tech (Sant’Anna School’s spin-off company), will give his talk at “Imprenditorialità di studenti e laureati: quale ruolo per le università?” conference organized by AlmaLaurea on May 16 in Parma.

To expand the entrepreneurship ecosystem across Italian universities and building links with entrepreneurs, investors and business experts, Antonio Davola will present his leadership experience in Ales Tech. The startup Ales Tech is focused on the next generation of railway vehicles propelled by magnetic forces, such as the Hyperloop tube-based travel system conceptualized  by Elon Musk. Ales Tech’s Ironlev project provides innovative solutions for trains floating on a cushion of air and “levitating” nearly an inch above the track.

Ales Tech is developing the suspension system and the brake settings on train cars.  Over 60% of the budget for a traditional train is spent in energy to electrify the whole track, whereas the Ironlev vehicles are coupled with passive ferromagnetic rails that do not require electrification to provide levitation.
