In particular, the intent is to support the new companies/initiatives, offering them a support path with suggestions on regulatory compliance issues, for the development of a preliminary feasibility study and the preparation of the business plan, as well as advisory services in the search for possible funding, providing a reasoned guide to successfully access the fintech channels promoted by the Supervisory Authorities.

Donato Varani, partner of Annunziata&Conso., commented: “Our platform, the first in Italy, is a useful and concrete operational tool to allow selected technologically innovative companies to interact with the Authorities and access the channels promoted by them in order to successfully test their business. The intent that has guided us in the launch of this initiative stems from the experience gained so far in accompanying fintech initiatives in the early stages of their life, helping them to manage the most delicate legal aspects, regulatory compliance, and organizational development, including in the dialogue with the Authorities”.
