360 Capital Partners With Politecnico Di Milano To Launch €60m Tech Transfer Fund
Politecnico Milano, the leading scientific-technological university based in Milan, Italy, and 360 Capital, a European venture capital firm, have partnered to launch a new €60m technology transfer fund, Poli360.
The fund will leverage an anchor investment from ITAtech and participation of key Italian industrial groups to support tech transfer from academia to industry backing students and researchers from Politecnico Milano.
The investments will focus on advancing high tech projects and startups based on research and/or IP in such sectors as industrial manufacturing, automation, energy, civil infrastructure and telecommunications management, advanced materials, and design.
They will cover the entire lifecycle of innovation projects, from the beginning focused on tech development to IP tech transfer to the industry, to high-tech company creation.
The fund will leverage the expertise of Politecnico Milano and the tech transfer platform managed by Technology Transfer Office of Politecnico and by PoliHub, a startup incubator.
The new vehicle will be managed by 360 Capital.
