The week in Italian startups - Issue #48
Wearables and COVID-19
Azimut did it again: after being the first Italian asset manager to raise a (well, two) VC fund from private investors (we talked about it), the asset management company announced AliCrowd, the first venture capital ELTIF 🇮🇹 to be raised on a crowdfunding platform (Mamacrowd).
The company aims to raise €25m, starting from a minimum of €15m; it will use Mamacrowd to select qualified investment targets but I could not find a clear investment guideline anywhere: will they only invest in deals published on Mamacrowd? Or diversify the portfolio with active scouting? Any pointers are welcome!
