On July 13, 2018 at the Florence headquarters of Bank Monte dei Paschi di Siena has taken place a seminar focusing on business development in India.
Several presenters have outlined opportunities of concrete action targeted to generate actual business set to steadily develop in the mid to long term: financial tools featured by relevant institutions set to meet the various projects and organisational needs ( Mario de Luca Head of Monte dei Paschi Foreign Trade , Pietro Petrucci Head of SACE Tuscany, Francesco CastaldelliInvestment Manager at SICI ) as well as technical tools and approaches to execute business development in pragmatic ways specifically towards the unique socio-economic and cultural context of India ( Pierpaolo Vannucci Founder and Partner at Vannucci and Associates together with Samit Naik , in remote connection from Mumbai and Riccardo Paterni , both co-founders of Synergy Pathways).
The seminar has also featured a presentation by Pietro Riccomini CEO of Bionatura; the company is currently focusing on the entry and development of in the Indian market. The session has been closed by Shyam Chand Director of the Commercial Section at the India Embassy in Rome pointing out several areas of joint business connection and development India – Italy.
It has been a pleasure to be part of this synergising way to illustrate an integrated pragmatic model to business development towards India. Throughout the presentations it has been evident, from several perspectives, that Italian companies have tangible opportunities to understand, embrace and develop towards a market that offers remarkable opportunities of growth.

On June 28th 2018, several companies from the Italian Motorsport Industry have gathered to proceed in structuring a meaningful network aiming to enhance the value generated by the Italian Motorsport Industry ecosystem towards global opportunities.
The industry know-how needs to be fully valued within global projects regarding several fields: motorsport constantly evolving needs, automotive rapidly changing and evolving scenarios, as well as aerospace, defence, biomedical and other fields that can benefit from research & development generated by Motorsport companies and their capabilities to accelerate innovation processes.
The companies involved were SMEs (Small and Medium Size Enterprises), larger multinational corporations and global entities that are channelling and leveraging investments involving the ecosystem.
The meeting was held at the facilities of one of the companies, YCom in Collecchio Parma (future meetings are also going to be held at facilities of member companies in order to stimulate practical ways to synergise activities) and represented a sought-after follow-up to a conference that was held in Rome last April in which opportunities and methods of business development for the Italian Motorsport ecosystem were outlined and debated (see article Il Motorsport Italiano Fa Sistema for an overview of that meeting).
The network is now rapidly proceeding to structure itself while aiming directly to fulfil the action items agenda agreed upon. Activities are being implemented to stimulate deeper knowledge among the companies part of the network in order to facilitate synergies targeting international growth opportunities.
Self-knowledge to fully leverage on the own assets, focus on developing far reaching synergies and determination for practical concrete action, represent three key traits shared within the network. Stay tuned for updates …
