This essay focuses on the post-Covid19 environment of entrepreneurial ideas that have potentials of success and growth in the coming years, providing an insight into the prolific funding being made available for University startups, especially in their early stages of development. To achieve this objective, it seems crucial to define firstly many terms frequently used and to determinate the involved variables. Whoever is able to predict this new post-Covid reality and glimpse the later scenario, will be better prepared for the new times, which will be as changing and indefinite as in the past. It seems the right time to transform ideas into realities. Whether it is a student presenting his thesis or an entrepreneur landing his postponed projects, this new scenario more than tempting forces to undertake. Through an University startup accelerator, it is possible to anticipate your competitors, learning about new proposals, counting on the advice and mentoring of independent professional experts. Universities with a sufficiently strong entrepreneurial ecosystem can serve as an ideal launch pad for startups founded by its own students and researchers.
