The event will serve as an opportunity to highlight a very positive time for investment in Italy and an opportunity for Italian SMEs, often global leaders in their market segments, to use investment to grow to the next level in their development.

The positive environment is boosted by increased deal-flow from government-backed, domestic and international funds, a pro-investment oriented government, reform of the justice system and opportunities arising from the €222 billion allocated to Italy under the EU PNRR.

In two roundtable discussion panels, speakers will address topics such as:

Roundtable 1 – A Good Time for Investments in Italy

  • Thibault Vanpeene, Director, Eiffel Investment Group, on “Increased Attractiveness of Italian Investment Opportunities”
  • Paul Mann, Squire Patton Boggs, Head of Global Private Equity, on “Pan-European Mid-market Expansion”
  • Filippo Rozzanigo CEO, Marco Polo Advisor, on “Opportunities for SMEs”
  • David Pambianco CEO, Made in Italy Fund, on “Growth of Italian PE Funds”
