This new hub now hosts the Vertical Acceleration Program dedicated to the Lifestyle sector, which has started in January 2018 and will bring participating startups to the presentation to investors, corporate and press during the Demo Day in May 2018. For LVenture Group, listed holding company that operates in the Venture Capital sector and provides the financial resources to the startups of the LUISS ENLABS Program, the opening of the Milan spaces has a highly strategic value: the city is the ideal location to continue its national and international growth process, not only for its strong potential for attracting investors and capital, but also for its ability to offer fertile ground for innovation, startups and contamination between the latter and large companies. Milan has been chosen as the location for the Vertical Lifestyle Acceleration Program as it is a leader in this sector, with a globally renowned business structure.
