About Us


We are the largest Venture Capital manager in Italy and among the largest in Europe.
We were born thanks to a systemic approach in the management of public and private resources aimed at creating a market operator able to combine aims of return on investment and support for market development.

We operate on strategic sectors for the future by investing directly and indirectly in startups, innovative SMEs and Venture Capital funds for the creation of a market infrastructure that can support the entire life cycle of startups.

We are subject to specific regulations and are held to norms and standards of financial transparency and prudence to protect investors' interests. Investment evaluations are carried out by experienced managers who are geared to maximize returns within the constraints and objectives defined for each fund or portfolio under management.



Our goal is to build the Italy of tomorrow, putting innovation at the center of the country's economic development, investing in a new generation of entrepreneurs, to regain the driving role in all creative fields, science and technology that has always distinguished us.


We operate by following the best international market standards, investing selectively, mainly together with other market participants, in order to achieve sustainability and returns sufficient to attract subscriptions from third-party investors, to consolidate a long-term ecosystem.

We attach great importance to environmental, social, and governance factors, inspiring the substantive aspects of our business with ESG responsibility principles, both for investment opportunities and financial and economic value generation and for attracting top talent.
