In 2019 ten first startup “seed”, nine Scaleup and Innovative SMEs have joined Startup Club.
In December 2018, the scaleup and smes club was created as part of the Italia Startup Association (press release).
Italia Startup Club is a community of founders of some of the most important Italian scaleups and innovative SMEs.
To date, Italy Startup has a total of 2800 members, including 1879 individuals, 785 startup seed, 45 scaleups and innovative SMEs, 71 startup partners among incubators, investors and qualifiers and 20 consolidated companies.
Angelo Coletta, president of Italia Startup, comments on the Club’s mission and objectives:
“With them [the Club associates] we want to reflect on the regulatory measures that can help startups grow quickly and internationalize, find the best solutions so that our scaleups can compete on equal terms with the scaleups of other nations. Furthermore, we must promote “Il Salotto di Italia Startup” project that aims to give visibility and voice to Italian innovative entrepreneurs, as well as stimulating the development of Venture Capital – as well as that of Open Innovation and Corporate Venture Capital. Obviously we also intend to create an internal network of experiences and exchanges of knowledge in business way”.
In March, the Association announces the entry into the Club of other associated entrepreneurs. Among scaleup and innovative SMEs, TeamDev is also proud to be part of the network.
“… I am particularly pleased – comments Coletta – to find that development is above all on the front of innovative companies and their founders, who believe in the evolution of the associative project, made up of shared reflection on the dedicated legislation, a network of relationships between entrepreneurs, facilitating agreements starting from the services of the members themselves and communicating success stories.”
