Acceleration programmes for companies in the Apennines

Since 2014 Fondazione Edoardo Garrone has been committed to relaunching the economy of the Apennines through initiatives sustaining youth entrepreneurship.

The Foundation’s commitment soon led to the creation of the ReStartApp project – a 10-week free, residential (“on-campus”) course for people under the age of 40 years having a business project in mind to be implemented in the Apennine region.
