to the new home of

Italian Innovation

There is a new home for Italian innovation in Silicon Valley:

INNOV.IT - Italian Innovation and Culture Hub

INNOV.IT brings the best of Italy together – culture, business, technology, and science – in a one-of-a-kind space for global innovation. The result? A unique opportunity for those who are driving Italian innovation to interact with the venture capitalists, startups, universities, R&D centers and policymakers that make Silicon Valley the epicenter of the tech world. 

The Hub is a strategic initiative promoted by the Italian Ministry of Foreign Affairs and International Cooperation, together with the Embassy of Italy in Washington and the Italian Consulate General in San Francisco, which are also responsible for the supervision of the project.

The Hub is implemented by: 

  • Italian Trade Agency: the governmental agency that supports the business development of Italian companies abroad and promotes the attraction of foreign investment in Italy.
  • Italian Cultural Institute San Francisco: the official branch of the Italian government devoted to the promotion of the Italian language and culture in Coastal Northwest region of the United States.
  • Startup and Innovation Services Provider: specialized in acceleration and innovation services for Italian companies, startups, universities, and scientific centers.

Under the INNOV.IT umbrella, the organizations mentioned above implement integrated programs and activities aimed at strengthening the Italian economic, industrial, scientific and cultural system.

About Us

INNOV.IT is a technological outpost in Silicon Valley, home to the world’s largest high-tech community, and a strategic Hub for the promotion of the Italian economic, scientific, and cultural ecosystem in the United States. It is a place that inspires innovative entrepreneurial ideas and cross-cultural initiatives and serves as an accelerator for their international development. 

The Space

We are located in a historic building in the heart of San Francisco’s Financial District. The space is designed to be a modern classic with a touch of Made in Italy. One floor is dedicated to the working area – coworking spaces, meeting rooms, networking areas and facilities – while another floor is dedicated to the event space – conferences, concerts, pitching competitions, trade shows, and more. It all makes INNOV.IT one of the best locations to work and network in Silicon Valley.

At the Hub you will have access to everything from training, open innovation and acceleration programs to demo days, co-working spaces, partner searches, art events and more.
