ECN CrowdCamp: Startups and Local Impact Crowdfunding


In the past couple of years, crowdfunding has become a go-to funding model for startups and entrepreneurs. If in the past entrepreneurs had to turn to their families, friends and banks, or pitch the idea to Venture Capital firms and Business Angels, crowdfunding completely changed the game and made it fast and simple to collect needed amounts and launch new businesses.

One of this year’s ECN CrowdCamp sessions will be dedicated to the presentation of 3 successful cases of projects who chose crowdfunding and generated positive local impact through their campaigns.


  • Giulia Gallerani, Researcher of the Bioscience Laboratory at the Istituto Scientifico Romagnolo per lo Studio e la Cura dei Tumori (I.R.S.T.), will present their success in launching crowdfunding campaign “TRACe” for oncology research.
  • Giovanni Anceschi, Chief Operating Officer at Energy Way, will share his experience in launching a business through a combination of different funding schemes including crowdfunding.
  • Andrea Maria Scaparro, Co-founder of Pagurojeans and high-school Professor in Computer Science and Coding, will talk about the success of starting a business fully funded through a crowdfunding campaign.

ECN CrowdCamp | 28-29 June 2018

Hosted by Library of the National Research Council (CNR), Bologna Research Area | via Gobetti 101, 40129 Bologna, Italy
