To capitalise on and drive innovation, helping the most promising startups to grow by coming together with international investors. This is Generali’s aim for its partnerships with centres of excellence, venture capitalists and tech startups. Accordingly, the company is lending support as the main sponsor of the second edition of Scale It – an international fundraising initiative bringing together 15 fast-growing Italian ‘scaleups’ with more than 20 international venture capital funds. In the inaugural 2015 edition, eight of the 11 scaleups selected received total funding of €43.5 million – an average of €5.4 million each – demonstrating the quality of the projects that were pitched.


Generali is committed to finding creative solutions to real business problems, but also to supporting innovative ideas that improve people’s quality of life, harnessing the Italian and international innovation ecosystem in order to respond to change.
