The Start-Up Initiative is the international acceleration platform developed by Italy’s leading Bank Intesa Sanpaolo.

Since its inception in 2009, it has developed a strong track record: 54 investment forums in 5 countries across 5 technologies, matching over 350 startups and growing companies with thousands of investors, corporations and players of the innovation ecosystem. Our alumni have raised over 30M€ in equity, awards and grants, and 5 of them reached an exit.

MOBICAP is a European Commission-backed consortium which aims to tackle the funding gap for early-stage Mobile/Mobility Service Industries (MMSI) by creating an online coaching community which will speed up the selection of investment ready SME’s and will train the chosen ones for the initial approach to investors and developing a tailored seed fund and identifying co-investment best practices, stimulating the participation of private and public capital.
