An accurate indication about the direction of the wind blow
Italy represents the eighth largest manufacturing industry in the world in terms of size and the second largest in Europe, with about 140 industrial districts forming the backbone of the national economic system. About 160,000 SMEs operate in Italy, capable of driving country's development and innovation.
However, Italian SMEs' growth is often threatened by:
- Lack of succession plans and reduced level of managerialization
- Reduced access to medium-long term capital for investments and development of new projects
- Difficulty to increase sales abroad and to fully exploit the technological potential
Therefore, out of the medium-long term needs of Italian small and medium enterprises, WindeX was born. WindeX's goal is to support successful Italian SMEs in their growth, offering a structured access to direct private equity investments to its co-investors.
