Fondazione Edoardo Garrone’s commitment to supporting young entrepreneurs and the development of mountain areas is now focusing in particular on the Apennines. This area is indeed lagging behind in terms of strategies and solutions capable of exploiting its potential to the fullest.
The entrepreneurs that have completed the ReStartApp® and ReStartAlp® residential (on-campus) courses, do not simply work in their local area – they work for their local area. It is never just about a company, but, always, about far-reaching economic, environmental, and social projects.
The Apennines are the backbone of Italy, a constellation of ancient and yet constantly-evolving hamlets, an open-air library treasuring age-old knowledge, biodiversity and unique tastes, a closely-knit weave of trails and possible stop-overs…the place that is home to our identity, from time immemorial. And a place of new beginnings.
In 2014 Fondazione Edoardo Garrone held the first edition of the ReStartApp on-campus course, aiming to give new momentum to the Apennine economy by fostering the creation of innovative, sustainable enterprises run by young people.

Through the Progetto Apennino project, Fondazione Edoardo Garrone offers the Apennine areas a series of skills and tools meant to favour the creation of new enterprises and make the most of the existing business environment, also by developing networks capable of sharing knowledge, resources, and opportunities, increasing process efficiency, and putting forward new proposals to meet the demands of a changed market scenario.
