Description of the event:

Innovation is the engine of growth and a key element of competitiveness. The ability of a country to produce an uninterrupted stream of new product and services is what really distinguishes dynamic and growing economies from stagnant ones. In this context, the creation of new ventures and its enabler – venture capital funding – play a critical role in ensuring that a country can sustain its living standards. Action Institute is pleased to invite you to the event “Financing Innovation – Venture Capital as a Driver for Development” aimed at introducing our proposal for the creation of a public venture capital fund of funds to support the venture capital industry in Italy.
