It was a year of restarts, as we told during our SIOS roadshow throughout Italy. Reloaded, we called it. To celebrate 12 months of achievements and successes of the Italian innovation ecosystem, here we are with a list of over 100 innovators who made the difference in 2022. It is not a ranking, but a list, in alphabetical order, of personalities who we met, interviewed, got to know each other. As always, StartupItalia’s goal is to expand its community. This is why in our list you will find historical names of the ecosystem, as well as new entries, personalities that we are sure will continue to be talked about even during 2023.
