TechCrunch Italy will gather some of the most recognised leaders and innovators of the technology and media industries in Italy, Europe and the U.S. to give a unique insight into the big changes and trends happening in the world right now.
A one day conference and startup showcase that will propel Italy's tech startups into the center of the debate about what's changing in technology right now, what's causing it and how we can harness the current economic climate to innovate and grow. The whole event will be focused on building global companies from Italy and how technology can re-engineer our economies for the better.
Co-organized with Populis, one of Europe's leading digital media groups, it'll bring some of the best experts together to talk about what's next in the most spectacular venue imaginable: The Globe Theatre, held in Villa Borghese, Rome. A breathtaking replica of Shakespeare's Globe in London, speaking or attending here is akin to appearing in one of the most recognized settings in theatrical history, so it's not to be missed.
With support from Mind The Bridge Foundation, participants will meet the people behind the hottest new startups in Italy, see the new products and technologies driving the industry today, as well as hear from the influencers shaping the global trends in our sector across the world.
