Recently the Italian Government launched a €1bn investment program aimed at the native startup ecosystem to create new opportunities and to promote innovation as a key driver for the growth of the national economy.
The goal is to foster the technological and digital transformation of companies, in order to overcome the contraction induced by the pandemic crisis and direct the recovery of investments towards strategic areas for competitiveness and sustainable growth.
Amedeo Scarpa, Italian Trade commissioner to the UAE said, “The number of Italian startups keeps growing and official numbers confirm the positive trend already underway in 2021. 14,600 startups have been registered in Italy as of July 2022, 3.7 per cent of all national newly established joint stock companies.
