Digital Magics opened in Padua in July 2016 Digital Magics Triveneto, its fifth branch, in order to support the innovation ecosystem in Veneto, Trentino Alto Adige and Friuli Venezia Giulia. The incubator of Triveneto has evaluated and met with over 100 digital startups in the area, confirming the high rate of innovation through more than 1,000 startups and innovative SMEs (Veneto: 572 startups and 35 SMEs; Trentino Alto Adige: 218 startups and 8 SMEs; Friuli Venezia Giulia: 163 startups and 18 SMEs).

In 2016, Veneto was the fourth region of Italy by number of innovative startups and represented 7.99% of the national total. Padua and Trento are among the top 10 Italian provinces with the biggest number of innovative startups. The region with the highest incidence of innovative startups compared to the sum of capital companies is Trentino Alto Adige (1.07%), Trento ranks first with 142 startups every 10,000 corporations and then follows, in second place, Trieste with 139.

In 2016 GIOIN involved more than 1,000 people throughout the national territory: business owners, CEOs, directors in innovation and marketing, and representatives of institutions took part in the 6 itinerant events (Milan, Rome, Saint Vincent, Naples, Palermo). Due to the success and interest shown, GIOIN 2017 has added two more dates to the series of meetings and has forged partnerships with leading companies such as Intesa Sanpaolo Group, Boraso, Cisco, Ernst & Young, Fastweb, Oracle and QVC Italy, which are the partners of this year’s edition, along with Talent Garden, DLA Piper and Dol. GIOIN 2017 also boasts the collaboration with Group 24 ORE that will support the entire cycle of events.

The event taking place on March 16 in Padua is the first of the 8 GIOIN appointments for the year 2017, designed to explore the opportunities of the so-called Generation 4.0, or to understand how to develop ‘process innovation’, how to diversify its product range and service, by using technology platforms, through collaboration with innovative startups. GIOIN is in fact focused on sharing concrete experiences and “case history”, involving entrepreneurs and startuppers who are putting into practice the paradigm of Open Innovation in their fields.

The second event of GIOIN will be held in Naples on April 6 within the Innovation Village 2017 (Overseas Exhibition – Hall 6) and will focus on AgriTech and Digital Manufacturing.
