Aruba Cloud and Techitalia partner to grow Italian businesses in London

Aruba Cloud has announced a new partnership with TechItalia:LAB, a London-based accelerator that helps Italian-speaking start-ups to grow in English speaking markets.

The partnership will give participating start-ups access to the technology support they need to develop their business projects and facilitate the implementation of suitable IT infrastructure.

Collaboration through technology and entrepreneurship

Despite the current political division caused by Brexit, and the breakdown in relationship between the EU and the UK, TechItalia:LAB is pushing ahead in a professional and collaborative manner. Political bodies and individuals should take note!

With approximately 2,000 tech professionals and 90 mentors, TechItalia:LAB is an equity-free accelerator that takes a mentor-led approach to helping London-based Italian start-ups to get their project off the ground and accelerate growth. It provides access to investment, a co-working space and networking opportunities in London’s start-up scene. It also provides six weeks of training and over 100 hours of training and 1-to-1s for participating start-ups.

“Our partnership with Aruba will provide start-ups with a more comprehensive package of ongoing support and access to some of the key technology services and solutions needed in order to help them grow – such as cloud, hosting, technical expertise and other services,” said Pier Paolo Mucelli, founder of Techitalia. “Combined, both organisations will provide Italian start-ups in London with a wide range of support and expertise that will make it easier for them to achieve success.”

The partnership

Aruba will support start-ups with the technology they need to help them grow and expand their businesses within the UK’s capital and further afield. With this support, businesses will be able to design the IT infrastructure in a dynamic environment, capable of adapting to your business as it develops. Each business will get a three-year support program as they build their business plans.

Aruba is already working with a range of Techitalia start-ups, including Natwork (networking and events platform) and Coderblock (AI recruitment marketplace), who both won €50,000 in cloud credit as part of the quarterly Demo Day event.

According to Massimo Bandinelli, Cloud and Data Center Marketing Manager at Aruba S.p.A., “we’re really excited to be partnering with Techitalia to support the Italian start-up community in London. The start-up landscape is more competitive than ever and we believe our expertise and support will be useful for new businesses with real potential, helping them to compete alongside big players.”
