EmiliaRomagnaStartUp is an initiative powered by ASTER, the Consortium for innovation and technology transfer among the Emilia-Romagna Regional Government, the regional Universities and the national research centres hosted in the region.
ASTER promotes the regional innovation ecosystem through:
- research-enterprise collaboration,
- development of tools and structures for the industrial research
- valorization of human capital.
EmiliaRomagnaStartUp is the main regional initiative for startups or future entrepreneurs. The community gathers innovative startups and business support organizations (public and private: Incubators, Innovation Centers and Chambers of Commerce); its services range from support on classical themes related to innovative entrepreneurship to specialized consulting, business development, internationalization and support for fund raising.
Further services to accompany new entrepreneurs over their whole development path are:
- the incubation program at Le Serre di ASTER (ASTER Greenhouse);
- finance tools as FINANCER and KICK-ER
- mobility programs as the Erasmus for Young Entrepreneurs
- networking initiatives
- EU projects
Since 2015 ASTER has a desk in San Francisco and promotes the Silicon Valley Mindset Program, a mobility program for Emilia-Romagna start-ups willing to participate in acceleration paths in Silicon Valley.
