Made in Italy and Industry 4.0: Engines for the country’s growth
Milan is currently hosting the conference sponsored by the Quadrivio Group with the support of Confindustria aiming at taking a snapshot of the current situation and prospects of the two market segments, which today, thanks to private equity, can enhance and accelerate the growth of the country.
The Group, which has been operating for more than 20 years in the alternative investment landscape, has announced that it will invest more than half a billion euros into Italian SMEs over the next three years.
Milan, 28 May 2019 – Made in Italy and Industry 4.0: these are the main topics of focus for this event, conceived and promoted by the Quadrivio Group in collaboration with the Young Entrepreneurs branch of Confindustria. Today, these two sectors are the two most dynamic segments of the Italian economy.
Despite the uncertainty at the international level and the slowdown characterizing the economic situation, these two sectors are confirming their anti-cyclical nature, recording steady growth.
The event was attended by prominent speakers and leading members of the worlds of finance, business and industry.
“At the center of the debate today is the desire to continue to strongly believe in Italian excellence, and, on our part, to continue to invest in order to help the process of transformation from small family-owned SMEs to multinationals headquartered in Italy”. This was the inspiring statement made by the Group CEO of the Quadrivio Group, Alessandro Binello, at the start of the proceedings.
The roundtable dedicated to Made in Italy, which analyzed the current situation, the possible scenarios and the current and future prospects of the country, was attended by Walter Ricciotti, the CEO of Quadrivio Group, and David Pambianco and Mauro Grange, both Partners of the Made in Italy Fund, the first fund dedicated to investments in the fashion, beauty, design and food sectors. Also present were Mario Boselli, Honorary President of the National Chamber of Fashion, together with Alberto Peretto, entrepreneur and founder of the company 120% Lino, and Lorenzo Guidotti, Head of Wealth Management & Family Office at SCM SIM.
The discussion highlighted the role of the private equity asset class, an instrument which nowadays makes possible, more than ever before, the conveying of financial resources to SMEs in an efficient and effective manner, supporting them in the processes of growth, innovation and internationalization.
