  • Investing in Italian scale-ups.

    Value for money.

    Great quality

    Style & Technology

    "Made in Italy" is the third most famous brand in the world. It is a synonym of taste and creativity.

    Developers are well trained and largely available.

    Fair evalutaions

    Less competition

    The number of startups in Italy is booming following the worldwide trend. On the other hand, the venture capital market is still limited in comparison with Anglo-Saxon Countries. 

    An extra incentive

    Weak currency

    Euro is particularly weak in comparison with Sterlin at the moment. Hedging on currency is a great opportunity to scout in Continental Europe.

    WHY ARE YOU ORGANISING THIS EVENT?

    To showcase the best Italian projects.

    From our perspective, the Italian ecosystem is ready to attract more and more capital from major venture capitalists. The main Italian accelerators are working together to prove it.

    HOW HAVE YOU SELECTED THE SCALE-UPS?

    Startups ready for top international investors based on revenues, innovation, team and equity story.

    We are currently working on the selection process. Criteria include: (1) turnover and innovation magnitude; (2) the team skill set; and (3) the company equity story.

    WHEN WILL THE STARTUPS LIST BE PRESENTED?

    By the 20th of February

    The selection process is now on going thanks to the support of the partner accelerators. As soon as the list is completed we will share the official teaser.

    WHO CAN ATTEND THE EVENT?

    Only top investors. Media and iStarter guests.

    We measure the success of the event by the number of opportunities that we are able to create for the companies. The event is by invitation only.
