growITup is the most relevant plaftorm of Open Innovation in Italy. Launched by Cariplo Factory in collaboration with Microsoft, its main goal is to promote and accelerate Digital Transformation across the country, to build a bridge between the established industry that has gained worldwide recognition for its quality (Made in Italy) and a new ecosystem of most promising startups. growITup is also backed by its own VC fund for a total of 100 million euro to invest in the best startups that join the platform.
Connect, Engage and Scale: three fundamental components on the path to growth. A big opportunity for creating value for both startups and big corporations.
During the first phase of the growITup initiative the best post-seed startups will be invited to workshops and meetings with all major partners: Accenture, Alpitour, Avanade, Barilla, CNH Industrial, Enel, Generali, HP Enterprise, Intesa, Luxottica, Peroni e Terna.
As of today the #CallForGrowth #NextEnergy (in collaboration with Terna) is looking for candidates that are working and innovating in the fields of energy infrastructure, environment, data collection and more. Learn more and apply by November 22nd!
