Acceleration Programs

We scout, select and invest in innovation-based and high-growth potential startups. We support them through capital investments and tailored acceleration programs involving young talents.

The initiative applies international best practices around the support of new business initiatives by providing professional skills and financial resources to make them take off quickly.

We pair high growth potential startups to business angels willing to effectively support the founders in the development of their initiative by investing financial resources (also thanks to the co-investment of Fondazione Marche that can quadruple the total investment) management skills and strategic vision.

In particular, on one hand, we look for early-stage startups in any sector but already on the market and, on the other hand, former managers or entrepreneurs with at least 10 years of experience in successful companies and/or holding positions of high responsibility.
