Best quotes from Techcrunch Italy

We did it!

At the first Italian edition of Techcrunch, yesterday 27th of September in Rome,  the italic start up ecosystem performed at its best, showing a country ready to compete globally:  smart startups, beautiful ideas, wise investors, all people speaking English fluently, a really great location although with heavy network problems (sigh!). Techcrunch Italy was attended by more than 1 thousand people (according to the official PR) and followed in streaming (good streaming, thanks Top-IX!) by really many others. Above all, the event confirmed that the climate in Italy is changing, that an innovation ecosystem exists, it has its own DNA and is gaining much self-awareness every day.

 

 

There were some winners among startups: the winner for the live pitching  was Atooma; the most loved by people Uribu, and Empathic, the winner of the Hackathon.
