Innovation, businesses and territory: ANGI conference at Villa Doria d’Angri on 24 October in Naples

ANGI aims to set in motion a mechanism for discussion and dialogue to support young innovators and talents from Southern Italy in the name of sustainability and social issues

In an increasingly digital-oriented economy, the development and valorization of talents, looking to the future of the young generations, represents a fundamental objective for the country. In particular, the South has demonstrated that it has important potential which, by communicating with the territory and the respective stakeholders from the world of business and universities, can give new impetus to growth and development for the entire ecosystem. In this important conference, by bringing together numerous actors from institutions (both national and local), companies and aggregators of the innovation ecosystem of southern Italy, ANGI aims to set in motion a mechanism for discussion and dialogue in support of young innovators and talents from Southern Italy in the name of sustainability and social issues. Promoters of the initiative are Gabriele Ferrieri, president of ANGI – National Association of Young Innovators and Francesco Zaccariello, new ANGI Delegate for Southern Italy who commented: “My commitment to innovation and social issues is a fundamental part of my being an entrepreneur and young innovator. I want this adventure of mine with ANGI to bring added value to all of southern Italy, to enhance the excellence and talents that are here in our territory and to offer the right opportunities to all those young people who would like to return. A fruitful dialogue with businesses and institutions will be fundamental to bring a new cultural humus by focusing on investments for the startup world and digital-related training for future generations”.
