The 28 Italian startups to watch, according to top VCs
To find out, Sifted spoke to three Italian VC funds — P101, 360 Capital and United Ventures — and asked them about the most promising Italian startups (which weren’t on their portfolios). Among the key takeaways are just how many Italian startups grow out of university R&D labs and the near-complete absence of Italian startups in the south: almost all are based in Milan, Turin, and Genova. Of the 28 startups listed, 19 were available for interviews — the rest were written up using information taken from Pitchbook, CrunchBase and the startups’ own websites.
