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 scale-ups 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.
Exclusively 200 seats available. 50 seats are reserved for iStarter equity partners, 50 seats reserved for exclusive guest, and 100 seats are reserved for international and institutional investors.
Select guests will enjoy our well-known Italian hospitality in the inspiring venue of the Italian Ambassador’s Residence in Beijing. We have selected Beijing to emphasize the strong culture of collaboration between China and Italy. By invitation only.
