The SiliconValleyStudyTour links Italian graduates, researchers and business angels with Italian executives and startuppers worldwide.
In August 2005, La Storia nel Futuro and SVIEC (the Silicon Valley Italian Executive Council) teamed up to launch the very first Silicon Valley Study Tour.
Paolo Marenco, President of La Storia nel Futuro and Jeff Capaccio, Chair of the highly influential, 400 plus member, SVIEC, created a thoughtful series of seminars, taught by top executives from some of the Silicon Valley's most cutting-edge startups, well established technology giants and prestigious venture capital firms, to expose graduate and graduating engineering and business students, from leading Italian Universities, to the unique entrepreneurial culture of the Silicon Valley.
The results have exceeded Paolo’s and Jeff's expectations, producing multiple internships and doctoral theses in US, employment opportunities, incubators and start ups in Italy.
The main spin off are: Aizoon by Franco Cornagliotto -Marenco is Aizoon's Director since its birth in October 2005 - The Hub Milan by Nicolò Borghi, The Hub Rovereto by Jari Ognibeni, Creonomy by Nicolò Borghi and Corrado Alesso, Alabs by Mattia Accornero, HK Horticultural Knowledge by Emanuele Pierpaoli, Regalister by Davide Bertarini, Wheresup by Theo Gonella, Cam On Net by Edoardo Tosetti and Alessandro Giuliano, Hint Club by Massimiliano Brigonzi all founded by SVST Alumni, after their attendance.
Carlo Alberto Pratesi, marketing Professor of Roma Tre University, after attending the SVST 2007 and 2008, launched in Rome in 2009 Innovaction Lab with Paolo Merialdo and Augusto Coppola, great school of entrepreneurship for wannabe startuppers. All of the participants return to Italy with a renewed excitement, new tools, new perspectives and a burning desire to one day succeed as entrepreneurs and technology executives.
On May 26th, 2012, all the Alumni met in Genova University, School of Engineering, where the project was born, in 2005.
300+ are the Alumni, since the beginning in 17 editions.
In 2013 the Technology Scouting Project in Silicon Valley for European Companies was born, supported by the Italian Foreign Ministry. The project is managed in Silicon Valley by selected SVST Alumni.
Since 2009 La Storia nel Futuro and SVIEC support NIAF in organizing Italy Study Tours for American Italian Undergrads, never been before in Italy, to discover the tech excellence of Italy. The project is supported by the Italian Foreign Ministry. The first edition has been in June 2009, for 34 US students to Genova, Torino and Milano. The second edition has been in October 2011, for 4 Students to Sicily and Genova. The third in June 2013, in Lombardy and Liguria, for 7 students.
The Silicon Valley Study Tour seeks to create and maintain an important bridge between young graduates, researchers, business angels, "start-uppers", managers and entrepreneurs from Italy with the many successful Italian and Italian American high tech, biotech and venture capital executives in the Silicon Valley. SVIEC plays a critical role in fostering this bridge as it remains the only organization to have assembled the top Italian and Italian American high tech, biotech and venture capital executives, all of whom serve as outstanding role models, mentors and potential business partners for Italy's next generation of entrepreneurs and technology executives.
Tech scouting in the Silicon Valley
The project idea was born during the 14th SVST- August 2012- pushed by two italian entrepreneurs, attending the Tour. It is developed in a multiclient way, for 10 Italian Companies by 4 Tech Scouts, selected SVST Alumni
The Goal: to scout technologies and biz contacts inside the Silicon Valley ecosystem, useful for the needs of the 10 companies.
