LUISS Enlabs grows up. Last Friday, 8 July, the new headquarters of the accelerator founded after the partnership between LUISS and Enlabs srl in 2013 were inaugurated.
In only three years, the ecosystem around LUISS Enlabs hosted up to 40 startup, which in turn created more than 500 jobs and generated over 20 million euro in revenues from business angels and external investors.
Following the expansion, there will be more than 5,000 square metres available for the accelerator in Rome which, in the historic part inside Termini Station at via Marsala 29h, will be capable of hosting up to 80 startup and will become one of the biggest accelerators in Europe.
A wide two-floor open space in which fast-growing startups and innovative companies already on the market can develop their business in a place twice bigger than the past, with the possibility to host even more ideas and entrepreneurial tech projects.
The new accelerator will help, in fact, the remarkable trend of growth of the past three years and the realisation of ambitious plans for the future: hosting more and more startups, becoming the landmark tech hub and favouring the encounter and connection between new companies, corporates and many other actors in the world of innovation.
Just like airports, train stations are places for meeting and meshing. These are spaces in which people’s lives meet, and languages and cultures cross. Faces, smiles, stories.
An accelerator within a central station fosters an entrepreneurial ecosystem that witnesses these encounters, favours them with the proper conditions and helps creating a future for those who are able, and want, to take up the challenge. People who showed the ability and talent in LUISS Enlabs so far are the proof that this is possible. The new spaces show that dreams, along with the fair dedication, can even become true.
