The role of trailblazer
Alessandro Benetton is at the helm of Edizione, the family safe, but here he is in the role of investor in innovation which with this new initiative marks a further discontinuity compared to the past. «On this occasion too, I intend to lead the way for my family in an underdeveloped ecosystem in Italy in which I am sure, others will also want to join our initiative – he says – to respond with faster and more innovative tools to challenges that can no longer be postponed» .
The team of young talents
It focuses on young people who will act as a link between their experiences abroad and Italy. 2100 Ventures was in fact born from the meeting between Benetton and three young professionals with experience in finance and international venture capital: Andrea Gennarini, Andrea Casasco and Andrea Gurnari. A team that can also count on the support of advisors such as the business angel Luca Ascani, the general partner of Unruly Capital Stefano Bernardi and the co-founder of Scalapay Raffaele Terrone. «To build leading companies even before ideas, today it is essential to have young talents in the team. The partners of 2100 Ventures have international experience as technology investors and startup operators and now want to give something back to their country”, underlines Benetton.
