Italian Tech Week: 4 days to experience the future


Exhibition of technologies for industry and schools, meetings with inventors, innovative entrepreneurs, business angels and international investors, presentation of startups and scaleups, experiences of social enterprises, workshops on digital professions and events with the protagonists of the global tech scene. SEI is proud to announce that it is one of the founders of Italian Tech Week.

The Turin area is showing evidence of particular vitality on the front of initiatives related to technology, applied research, start-ups and in general to the world of innovation: in this favorable context, the Italian Tech Week was born, a series of events that from 25 to 28 June 2019 will bring together in Turin the Italian and European excellence committed to building the future of business and society.

ITW is a non-profit project promoted by the Camera di commercio di Torino, Club degli Investitori, Compagnia di Sanpaolo, Fondazione CRT, Fondazione LINKS, OGR, Politecnico di Torino, School of Entrepreneurship and Innovation (SEI), Torino Social Impact, Unione Industriale di Torino e Università di Torino. It aims to strengthen the integration of the territorial ecosystem of innovation, while offering opportunities for discussion and reflection at national and European level. The Camera di commercio di Torino, Compagnia di San Paolo and Fondazione CRT in particular support the implementation of the project.

The Italian Tech Week, which is organized in collaboration with the Ministry of Economic Development and has received the patronage of the City of Turin, will take place in dozens of different locations and will involve thousands of people including students, startuppers, entrepreneurs, business angels, investors, venture capital fund managers, managers, experts, professionals, researchers, teachers and in general all those who are interested in technologies and their applications.

The initiatives scheduled, all free of charge and with different ways of access and participation, include conferences, workshops, meetings with innovative entrepreneurs, moments of discussion with investors, venture capital fund managers and business angels, presentations of start-ups and scale ups, exposure of advanced technologies, seminars for students and professionals, debates with the protagonists of the world scene of tech entrepreneurship and workshops for children (as part of the Youth Summer program). A painting will also be experimented in an urban park in Turin, using a fleet of autonomous drones.

The program of initiatives, with details on how to find out and book for the various events, will be continuously updated: it is already possible to discover the first initiatives confirmed at (hashtag: #ITW). About twenty companies, associations, consortia and non-profit organizations, national and international, are planning further initiatives, which will be implemented in collaboration with ITW.
