Here you find what you need to grow

Industrio Ventures supports innovative teams and startups that want to create great products in Italy. Every year we select and invests in a limited number of hardware startups and help them bring their product to market as quickly as possible.

As an accelerator, we help every team to find the right business model, to validate a prototype, to prepare the DFM, to start the process for the necessary certifications, to launch the product on the market and to set up a fundraising funnel. Additionally, we grant them access to the Industrio Network, that includes some of the best firms, universities and startups of the Italian industrial ecosystem: an excellent tool to validate, design and create a great product.
