Credem Group has entered as an investor in Fin+Tech, Cdp Venture Capital sgr’s three-year accelerator program, launched in December 2020, which plans to accelerate 16 startups per year for a total of 48 and which launched its first call last July 2021.

The fintech accelerator started with an initial endowment of $1.87 million (€1.65 million), fully subscribed by Cdp Venture Capital sgr, which last December also approved a further $2.3 million (€2 million) for subsequent follow-on post-acceleration. The entry of Credem, therefore, increases the firepower of the accelerator.

The program is based in Milan and will be managed by Digital Magics, Startupbootcamp, and Fintech District, respectively the main Italian accelerator, the first European accelerator, and the largest international community of reference for the fintech and insurtech ecosystem in Italy.

The first investment of the corporate venture capital of the bank of Reggio Emilia, listed on Piazza Affari and controlled by the Maramotti family, was last October in Noonum, a Seattle-based company active in artificial intelligence, language analysis, and digital learning systems aimed at supporting financial analysis and portfolio construction.
