“Creativity takes courage”

Henri Matisse

The Techshop was born out of the desire to amplify our contribution to the Italian Tech Ecosystem.

Over the past 10 years we have observed a growing relevance of digital companies as innovation catalysts in leading countries, and the importance of the Early Stage as a defining moment in the startup acceleration journey. The driving role of digital companies has grown during the pandemic crisis and will be key throughout the economic and industrial recovery.

Our recipe starts from a meticulous screening of talented teams, to whom we will provide patient capital and our “tech workshop tools”: mentorship, managerial support, and access to a wider network of expertise.

A tenacious founding team is key to success in a digital startup: the team is the product. We aim to develop the founders’ full potential, challenging them to raise the bar and to think on a global scale.
