Italian startups world tour.

Made in Italy The Italian Digital Renaissance 
From Antonio Meucci, the inventor of the telephone, to the personal computer invented by Adriano Olivetti, Italy has a technological tradition to be discovered.
Each year we select digital startups launched by Italian entrepreneurs who have achieved outstanding metrics and present them to an audience of international investors.

iStarter the Italian accelerator in London

iStarter is the Italian angel-led accelerator based in London.

Thanks to the expertise of 100 ‘equity partner’ investors, we support local champions to scale-up globally. It’s a unique network of successful entrepreneurs and managers willing to give back to a new generation.

Every year, we select ten startups from the hundreds of applications we receive. We provide them with extensive mentorship, capital and connections, acting as a bridge between Italy and the UK, China and the US.
