Gattai, Minoli, Partners with Cariplo Factory for the agreement relating to the launch of “SkyDeck Europe, Milano” accelerator program

The Firm has assisted Cariplo Factory in the negotiation and signing of the agreement with Lendlease and the University of California Berkeley for the creation and management of the acceleration program named “SkyDeck Europe, Milan” (“SkyDeck Milano”), partially funded by Regione Lombardia, as well as by the participants in the initiative.

SkyDeck Milano will be integrated in the prestigious acceleration program “SkyDeck” of the University of California Berkeley, which has contributed to the success of some of the best startups in the United States since 2012. Its purpose is to develop in Milan a local ecosystem of investors, consultants and partners, both corporate and academic, to contribute to the development of startups which, after a strict selection process, will be supported both from an educational and a relational point of view, taking advantage of the rich network of the parties involved in the initiative and of the methodologies and best practices developed by the University over the years.

Cariplo Factory has been assisted by a team composed of Counsel Damiano Battaglia and Junior Associate Nicola Occhipinti, for corporate law profiles, and by Partner Licia Garotti and Senior Associate Vittoria Omarchi as far as intellectual property profiles are concerned.
