Global Start Up Program “Final Showcase”

The "Final Showcase", the grand finale of the UK edition of the Global Startup Program, was held on 17 June. The programme saw 14 selected start-ups take part in workshops and one-to-one mentoring and presentation sessions with figures from the British tech ecosystem. The event, which was organised in collaboration with The Accelerator Network, was an opportunity for the start-ups to pitch their innovative products to potential partners, businesses, venture capitalists and investors.

An welcome address was given by Massimo Carnelos, the economic and trade counsellor at the Embassy of Italy. Ferdinando Pastore, the head of the Italian Trade Agency in London, then thanked The Accelerator Network for its excellent work, wished the start-ups well in their future activities, and said that he hoped that what they had learned during the journey would open doors for them into the UK market. Finally, Ian Merricks, the chair of The Accelerator Network, thanked the Italian Trade Agency for its partnership and said he hoped that they would be able to collaborate again in the future to support the innovative Italian ecosystem. The event was rounded off with pitches by the start-ups.
