In Italy, revenue generated in 2015 by financed hi-tech startups reaches 247 million euros; hired employees included in the financial statement increase, reaching 2420 units. Northern Italy represents the central hub of the ecosystem in terms of received funding (58%) and numerosity of financed startups (65%). The value of investments made by formal players in the South and the Islands increases from 30% to 36%, but the overall number of startups financed in the ‘Mezzogiorno’ (southern regions plus major islands) drops, according to the findings of some large financing rounds focused, though, on a restricted number of startups.
