Italy needs new businesses, capable of exploiting the skills, know-how and creativity of its young people; their university and secondary school education, their knowledge and experience. How are ‘young’ businesses born? What characterizes them? What are the main obstacles to their development? And what, instead, are the initiatives – at all levels – that can be taken to promote them? This is what will be discussed in Bari, starting with the real-life experiences of a dozen new business owners, their stories and their successes.
Coordinated by Vincenzo Magistà
