What is Made in Italy

Conceived as a single event in 2016, Made in Italy has become a world tour. The first edition began at the London Stock Exchange. Following London and Beijing in 2017, iStarter closes its first world tour in february 2018 in New York where, at the Grand Central Tech, pole of excellence of the Big Apple’s technological and innovative sector, a group of selected Italian startups has presented their projects in front of an audience of sought-after international and American investors. The second word tour comes almost to a fantastic end! We have seen a great III London edition at the Academy of Arts, a welcoming NYC Second Edition in April and a second Chinese edition that will be held in Shanghai in June.
