Cloud4Wi congratulates the winners of the second edition NABA’s Got Talent, an innovation-focused competition that took place at the New Accademia di Belle Arti (NABA) in Milan.
Organized in collaboration with Massimo Pettiti, professor of “Design Management” at the NABA, the competition started on March 19th 2019 and concluded on May 21st 2019, when the winners were proclaimed.

What’s new in this second edition NABA’s Got Talent?

At Cloud4Wi, we believe that young talents are the key driver of innovation and we wanted to find individuals who could help take Cloud4Wi’s value proposition to the next level. The main goal of this second edition was to discover what the Gen Zs expect from luxury brands in terms of customer experience.

About eighty students, all belonging to the Gen Z segment, participated in the competition. We divided them into eleven teams, and students competed by developing innovative use cases —through Cloud4Wi’s application suite—based on their real needs.

The three winning teams were selected based on the following criteria:

  1. Consistency with Cloud4Wi’s business
  2. Persuasive storytelling
  3. Comprehensive pitch
  4. Innovation.
