About the Innovation and Startup Desk in London

The Italian trade Commission in London has recently opened the startup and innovation Desk with the aim at fostering the relations between the protagonists of the Italian start-up ecosystem, i.e. companies, investors and support agencies, and foreign investors specialized in innovative start-up companies. The desk has knowledge of the local venture capitalist ecosystem, investment funds, and business angels, and may assist Italian startups in their setting up overseas operations and in their GO-TO Market Strategy.

The desk is situated in Sackville House, 40 Piccadilly, W1J 0DR London (UK).

It is fair to say that Tech entrepreneurship is favoured by the UK Government. Since the Coalition Government took an active interest in Tech via its endorsement of Tech City in East London in 2010, a steady stream of entrepreneur and investor-friendly policies have flowed from Westminster. Government announcements on areas like early stage seed investment, a commitment to open data, corporate tax rates and overall tax simplification were augmented by business-friendly regulatory support of innovative areas of finance and technology. All of these initiatives built upon an already favourable set of incentive programmes formed by governments on both sides of politics to create what has become, immigration aside, an extraordinarily probusiness climate both in action and spirit. Taken in their entirety, this range of Government policies and actions make the UK particularly attractive for entrepreneurs and investors, particularly at seed stage.
