In this short video you can find an excerpt of the speech made by Giovanni Affinita – Sales Strategist and SAPA Board Member – in front of the students of the Faculty of Engineering at the University of Naples Federico II, to present them the Angelo Affinita Prize.

Only a few days left to the deadline for the competition announcement (which expires on July the 31st) addressed to the best students of all Italian and European universities. We are receiving so many applications for registration every day.

An important opportunity to find new talents and give them an opportunity to develop their skills and career in SAPA.

SAPA is today an important Italian company working in the automotive plastics industry, but is – in fact – a small reality if compared to the large multinational giants that dominate the industry.

When you are a David, in a sea of Goliath, it is crucial to sharpen the weapons of agility and intelligence. You need to be very precise when you want to hit a target and you have to do it with great intelligence.

For this reason SAPA has decided to focus on young people and on their ideas. Because they are an inexhaustible forge of new solutions, of possible patents to be developed.

Little agile weapons that allow you to remain on a very combative battlefield, as you could hear from the words of Giovanni Affinita in the video.

If you are a young college student and you want line up with the young and agile David, this is the competition for you.

You can be part of it starting from here
