Local ecosystem, coordinating actions, push changes onto public administration: case of Trentino
There is a number of ingredients required to establish and grow a local entrepreneurial ecosystem.
On one side, one of the most important is the proactive role of the public administration in providing an entrepreneurial-friendly territory and legislative tools that can enable this ecosystem;
on the other side there is the need of creating a self-sustaining local community by creating awareness through events and meetups.
The Autonomous Province of Trento (Italy) has been investing for the past 30 years on R&D in the ICT sector, investing both in advanced Research Centres and a University ranking among top ones in Italy for ICT; moreover,since 2012 Trento hosts the 6th node of the European Institute of Technology – ICT Labs.
Trento RISE was founded in 2011 with the mission of bridging the gap between Education, Research and Business. TechPeaks – The People Accelerator – is one of the flagship programs of Trento RISE with the goal of enabling the creation of a local startup ecosystem which can tap into the technological know-how produced by Trentino research centres and university by also attracting international talents to Trento
The creation of an innovative acceleration program such as TechPeaks and the operation of making Trentino attractive for both international entrepreneurs and investors poses a number of challenges: from the political & legal point of view, to the cultural mindset of local companies & institutions.
