STARTALIA Venture Partner
For some years now, even in Italy after elsewhere, both medium and large companies and local governments have been looking at Open Innovation projects as a means of innovating their products, services and processes. These types of actions can take the form of different activities, more or less structured and articulated, from "calls for proposals" to Corporate Venture Capital programs.
Innovative startups can be an excellent stakeholder for this type of project, but there are good practices and correct rules of engagement to follow, because in Open Innovation everyone has to win, from the Corporate to the individual early stage startup team.
Startalia has long been involved in designing and conducting Open Innovation projects according to international best practices, including creating and managing incubation and venture building programs on behalf of partners.
