UniCredit Start Lab was set up to support young entrepreneurs, innovation and new technologies.
The project is aimed at innovative startups in all sectors, offering a multidimensional accelerator program to help drive business ideas forward, including cash grants, mentoring, network development, targeted training and specially tailored banking services.
UniCredit Start Lab grew out of “The Talent of Ideas” – an accelerator program UniCredit founded in 2009 to actively support young and innovative entrepreneurs with their business projects.
With the launch of UniCredit Start Lab, the program has now been enhanced and offers a number of extra features:
- partnership with incubators and investors Italy and abroad, to improve support for seed-phase startups
- startups that receive equity investments from selected investors can also receive co-investments from UniCredit
