Rome has created some fantastic startups like Wanderio, Atooma or NetLex, which have already a profile on Foundum. Rome provides a variety of great tech startups that we’d love to add to the ecosystem.

Therefore, we’d like to invite all entrepreneurial stakeholders & tech startups from Rome to join. By joining the ecosystem you’ll be able to connect to like-minded people and to make new relevant contacts to help you grow your startup. Help us grow the Rome ecosystem!

We hope to welcome you soon!
