The week in Italian startups - Issue #107
Tulips, an e-groceries market based on dark stores, 🇮🇹raised €3m in the first week of its crowdfunding campaign. I usually do not cover crowdfunding, but this round is worth talking about because of its size and because it comes soon after Gorillas announced cutting its presence in Italy.
Exor Seeds and Sequoia Capital led a $25m round in Upway, a refurbished electric bike startup.
Nexi announced the acquisition of BPER and Banco di Sardegna's POS management services for €318m.
