New ways to make innovation in Italy
Next July 1st we’ll officially launch growITup, the project announced by Microsoft CEO Satya Nadella last November, on the occasion of his first visit to Italy.
The initiative is aimed at promoting Innovation in Italy, through the creation of a new relationship between the best Italian companies and the most promising startups in the same sector, helping them to improve their business model, draw international strategies and find the funds that are necessary for their success.
The event will start at 10.30 at Base in Milan, the location of the newly born Cariplo Factory, the pole of “open and collaborative innovation”, which has the ambitious goal of providing 10,000 job opportunities for young people.
The meeting will be an opportunity to present the objectives, access and delivery mechanisms of growITup as well as the partnerships the project will rely on to achieve its goals.
In addition to the initiative and startup partners, Nagraj Kashyap, Corp VP of the new Microsoft Ventures Division, will join the event.
