Rome, 21 January 2021 - Promoting dialogue and exchange opportunities between startups and large Italian companies - this is the goal of StartupXItalia Private Matching, the 8-episode digital format created by CDP Venture Capital SGR and hosted by Riccardo Luna, which will be going live today on the CDP Live content channel, on the ItaliaXStartup platform and on CDP’s and CDP Venture Capital SGR’s social media pages.
8 60-minute episodes, each with a focus on a strategic sector for the country’s economy: the series starts with the analysis of the new tools for Health diagnosis, care and monitoring, to then move on to the Fintech and Insurtech areas, with all the solutions to invest, pay and save in an agile, fast and traceable way, to Energy Sustainability, to imagine a greener future and a virtuous use of resources, to Nutrition, where new lifestyle models lead to the need for new distribution models, digital marketplaces and new transparency models from producer to consumer, to the Tourism sector, which this year was particularly affected by the health emergency but which has never stood still, looking for new solutions for a richer hospitality offering increasingly focused on travellers’ needs, to Industry 4.0, an area of huge innovative potential in terms of automation that innovates work and production, to the future of data: the new Artificial Intelligence & Cloud trends, to the future of Infrastructure that is confronted with circular economy, innovative materials, augmented reality and new security solutions.
43 representatives of large Italian companies operating in key sectors met 65 startup founders and CEOs, listened to their development plans, challenged their weaknesses and evaluated their prospects, gathering new ideas and elements of innovation and enriching their vision of the future.
An opportunity for exchange and dialogue aimed at increasing synergies among the different players to facilitate growth opportunities among the players of Italy’s most innovative businesses.
