10_startup_2017

As the end of the year tends to bring with it balance sheets,(an example is this one, about the activity of Mamacrowd and equity crowdfunding at the end of 2016), so the new year is loaded with perspectives. This is demonstrated by a recent post by Eu Startups, one of the main blogs dealing with startups in Europe, founded by Thomas Ohr since 2010: it is the editor himself who lists the 10 most promising startups in the Italian market.

Of the companies mentioned in the special ranking, half have raised or are raising funds through the network of SiamoSoci: three have received seed from Club Italia Investimenti 2, which in turn was the first investment vehicle in Europe to raise capital through equity crowdfunding, right on Mamacrowd; in the startup Voverc has invested Club Acceleratori, club deal in which to invest were precisely the business incubators; one, Scuter, is still offering its shares to the public through the equity crowdfunding of Mamacrowd.

Riskapp: a risk assessment tool for the insurance industry. The company allows its customers to digitize the claims process and increase data collection to improve the use of analytics.

The list confirms a good result for the network of SiamoSoci that, having invested in a total of 50% of the startups mentioned in the article, is positioned as a player able to anticipate market trends thanks to the collaboration with the main business incubators and accelerators.
