Angel Network & Epic SIM
Digital Magics has built excellent relationships over the years, and established partnerships with leading business angels, with Venture Capital and Private Equity funds, and both Italian and international industrial groups. The incubator works jointly with private investors (business owners and top managers with a passion for digital innovation), industrial investors (such as Gruppo RCS, Gruppo Uvet, Nice, with whom innovation programs are also active) and financial investors [such as Tamburi Investment Partners, Gruppo Banca Sella, Gruppo Bancario Credito Valtellinese (Creval), Atlante Seed (Gruppo Intesa Sanpaolo), Gate14 Group, UniCredit, Innogest SGR and QUADRIVIO CAPITAL SGR)].
These important networks represent a major strategic asset for the business incubator, not only because of their financial leverage, but also because they reinforce the expertise and the network of relationships available to the startups in portfolio. Investors support Digital Magics’ startups and digital scaleups on a financial and industrial level, through “club deal” and programs of Open Innovation.
Thanks to the alliance with Epic SIM – which has developed a new digital financing platform for the intersection between companies and investors – Digital Magics possesses an innovative tool to bring new financial resources to the startups in incubation and new investors for the investee companies of Digital Magics. The aim is to accelerate the development of startups and scaleups with a view towards their exit and/ or their IPO.
On the website www.epic.it there is a section dedicated to investment opportunities in Digital Magics’ investee companies, hosting dossiers on the startups. This is a new financing model that provides high standards of transparency and in-depth analysis, in addition to a forum to discuss and analyse the financial operations, dealing directly with issuers. Access to the dedicated Epic platform is reserved exclusively for the qualified investors (as defined in the Consob/MiFID regulations).
