On September 11th and 12th Rome will host the Italian Tech Tour 2017. The best of the Italian innovative startups will be presented to the representatives of more than 80 international funds and foreign investors interested in investing in Italy. The aim of the expo is to enhance the links between companies and investors in the growing sector of technology, from ICT to Life Sciences, from food technology to energy.
26 startups have been selected among 200 by a commission led by the President of Tech Tour 2017 Marco Trombetti (venture capital and startup district of Pi Campus), and Piero Strada (SilverPeak and Vice President of Tech Tour).
“Italy today is a great opportunity for international investors – said Piero Strada – Things are evolving fast in our Country and many smart investors understood this incredible chance”.
Many of the companies which took part in the previous editions of the Tech Tour found their way to success: 15 of them have been already publicly traded or taken over. Octo Telematics was awarded as Tech Tour Growth Company 2016 and has continued to be involved in the Italian Tech Tour as a sponsor for the 2016 edition.
