Story of a young gaming entrepreneur

What are the limits of virtual
reality? In what direction is the
gaming industry developing?
Where is the connection
between sports and videogames?

For years American TV shows described gamers as people not interested in the world around them. An imaginary that has little to do with Arianna Ortelli, CEO and Co-founder of NOVIS GAMES, the startup that invented the first console that can be used without sight.

Thanks to the latest generation of gaming platforms and mobile devices, today we are able to live increasingly real and immersive gaming experiences. A fantastic world that has no age limits: but is it accessible to everyone for real?

This is the question the young gaming entrepreneur and great supporter of Torino FC posed herself. She tried to answer combining the team spirit of sport with the innovative potential of technology, creating the first gaming console for visually impaired and blind people. Her goal is to allow people to play with others and to be able to do it independently through unique acoustic and tactile characteristics.

With Arianna, at illimitHER, we will understand how NOVIS GAMES has developed and how a startup can produce social value. Aware that opportunities do not happen by chance, but must be created: choosing a studying program in line with personal attitudes, working in a sector that reflects our own values, cultivating competences and passions over time.

FEBRUARY 16 – 6:30 P.M.

Riguarda l’evento


During my Bachelor studies, I decided to specialize in startupping: only ten people of my class opted for the same program, but it was worth it as I discovered a big passion for both innovation and technology. Developing new competences, I genuinely wanted to build my own project and make the difference for the society I live in. I knew from the beginning that a good team was the ingredient I needed to make my wish come true!”
