La gestione della Finanza nelle startup

MITdesignX Venice is a multi-year open call for ideas co-created by MITdesignX (Boston) and  SerenDPT, a venetian benefit company.
Every year the 10  best ideas will gain admission to a free accelerator program, conducted by MIT faculty, to support students, professionals, developers and entrepreneurs who are committed to creating sustainable startups that provide solutions to real-world problems.
SerenDPT hosts the program at its headquarters Fabbrica H3 in the Giudecca Island, Venice, Italy.
SerenDPT provides incentives for startups that choose to locate their headquarters in Venice, so they can contribute to repopulating the city and the lagoon, by creating high-quality jobs for young people of all ages and Venetians of any origin.
