    The Search, Global Tour: Italy

    The Search reaches its final destination for 2021 – Italy - this special edition being co-hosted by ADGM and Banca d'Italia. Ahead of the G20 Rome Summit at the end of October, The Search will be brought to you live from Milan’s Museo Nazionale Scienza e Tecnologia Leonardo Da Vinci, Italy’s largest science and technology museum for our final gathering of some of the world’s most inspirational startups.

    With the G20 Summit focusing on People, Planet and Prosperity it is no coincidence that Italy has been chosen as the final stop for The Search’s world tour. Over the last 21 weeks, we’ve enjoyed 18 stops and met over 80 pioneering startups, showcasing some of the most exciting technologies of today.

    Hear from Alessandra Perrazzelli, Deputy Governor of Banca d’Italia, co-host of this special edition of The Search, as she shares insights into how to build a national innovation ecosystem. We will also meet Marco Giorgino, Full Professor of Finance and Risk Management, Politecnico di Milano, as he takes us on a brief tour to uncover the financial world of tomorrow.

    And finally, to conclude our global tour for 2021, we will be meeting our final six startups to see who is crowned champion and will join the other winning startups from The Search 2021 at this November’s Fintech Abu Dhabi.

    Congratulations to the Winners of The Search: Italy
