By Niccolò Sanarico • Issue #38 • View online
I am Niccolò and this is my overview of what happened last week in the Italian startup ecosystem.
In this issue: as expected, lots of new rounds were announced in the last 7 days; Utopia, a new life science investment vehicle; CDP Venture Capital announces a new accelerator; the new investment director of ENEA Tech “Climate” presents his investment thesis.
Enjoy the reading, and see you on the other side!

The Money
  • Fondazione Golinelli and Fondazione di Sardegna joined forces to 🇮🇹 launch Utopia, an investment vehicle dedicated to life sciences startups. Utopia will be a “simple investment company” (società di investimento semplice), among the first adopting the recent Italian legislation that introduced this new type of vehicle.
A new CDP-sponsored Accelerator
  • CDP Venture Capital 🇮🇹 launched a new accelerator, this time in partnership with Digital Magics, Startupbootcamp, and Fintech District, aimed at fintech and insuretech startups.
  • CDP committed €1.65M, to be invested in up to 50 startups for the next 3 years.
  • CDP has the goal of supporting 20 different acceleration programs, each one specialized in a market segment that is strategic for the Italian economy.
ENEA Tech and its climate strategy
  • Fresh in his new role, Stefano Bernardi set out his investment thesis as director of the Green, Energy and Circular Economy investment vertical sponsored by Fondazione ENEA Tech.
