Technological processes and innovative products have always been the basis on which to build competitive market development activities. Competitive companies recognize the value of Research and Development functions capable of supporting the commercial penetration of the most advanced markets. The US model for the development of innovative companies is a sure reference for the Italian market which recognizes the value of technology transfer in terms of supporting competitiveness. Italian companies, especially start-ups, need support for growth and support for management training, able to support entrepreneurial skills and to achieve results in terms of commercial success of productions. The fast growing US market represents in such sense the most honest and concrete example to follow”.
