Beyond borders

When you look at the Earth from space, you see no borders: there are no nations, no boundaries. Earth is a single, big blue sphere that humanity has learned to call "home": this is what we want to tell at Open Summit 2017. That challenge startups are facing is not to reach just one more city, one more continent: it is a global market and a global challenge, each nation is an opportunity to seize.

We will talk about this at StartupItalia! Open Summit 2017: how to go beyond our country's borders, how to use our imagination, how to make our dreams come true. Come and talk with us: we need all of you working every day to build a startup, believing and investing in new companies, working to give everyone a chance to make it. We need your ideas and your enthusiasm, to think big. To go beyond borders.

Click on "Call for Startup" and submit your application to #SIOS17: you can be selected as one of the startup that will be on stage at StartupItalia! Open Summit 2017.

See you next December 18th in Milano!
