INVESTING IN ITALIAN INNOVATORS IS A SMART MOVE!
Italian venture capital market size is less than 200mln Euro investments per year.The venture capital GDP ratio is the lowest in the G7 Countries. We believe that these numbers show an enormous opportunity. There are capable Italian innovators struggling to finance their ventures. Made in Italy 2020 is an amplifier of their voice. We invest in them because we recognise a real investment opportunity.
