As the chosen location for the first and only Slush'D event in Italy, we have selected Bolzano, where the Dolomite peaks inspire us to reach new heights! Bolzano, located in Alto Adige - Südtirol, is a thriving hub for startups in Italy, and its multilingual population makes it an ideal "bridge" for businesses. The focal point for startups in Alto Adige - Südtirol is the NOI Techpark, a Science and Technology Park and growing innovation district that encompasses 3 research institutes, 3 university faculties, 49 scientific laboratories, 63 companies, and 30 startups. Bolzano is also the birthplace of the Free University of Bolzano, the first trilingual university in Europe, playing a key role in talent development with over 4,100 enrolled students.
