Arianna Ortelli, born in 1996, graduated from high school V.Alfieri in Turin and graduated in Business Administration and then Business Administration at the University of Turin.


Passionate about sports and a die-hard fan of Torino FC, she convinces her mother to enroll her in the first women's football club when she was only 12 years old. She hasn't stopped playing since then.

In the third year of university she attended the School of Entrepreneurship & Innovation in Turin, developing a strong passion for innovation and entrepreneurship. Less than a year later she founded Novis, an innovative startup with a social impact, to concretely realize the idea of ​​a gaming platform that can also be used without sight, crowning the desire to bring the spirit of aggregation at the base of sport to life even for visually impaired people. and blind.

From intuition to realization It took less than one year and the first gaming platform for the blind was born, which gives the possibility to independently experience the physical and emotional dimension of a video game through touch and hearing, thanks to an innovative joystick that connects to the phone. The team includes engineers and graduates from the University and Polytechnic of Turin and also involves blind and partially sighted people from associations in the development, design and testing phases.

Today the team is committed to the development of the software and game platform, with the goal for 2021 to launch the App for users and the development ecosystem to allow new developers to create accessible games and content.

Gaming, accessibility and inclusion: the Novis Games dream
