“Let us create a big digital Italy, rich and interesting to those who live in it but also to those who look at it from the outside”, these are the words of Davide Dattoli, 24-year-old co-founder of Talent Garder or TAG, network of connections between entrepreneuers, freelancers and talents.
Davide Dattoli is a young entrepreneuer with the purpose of mixing technology, the internet and medias. He strongly believe that creating a new successful startup in Italy is possible, and he is right: the only Talent Garden has 8 locations in the whole Italy and wants to open others all over the world. But not a lot of independent locations where anyone thinks for itself: TAG is one of the biggest coworking networks in the world, that let talents gain a higher professional career and also have contacts with the most interesting professional figures and let them be known for their qualities both nationally and internationally, always staying in their living Country.
In his post published on CheFuturo!, Davide complains about all those little territorial empires that make wars each others to build their own innovation centre, and also the fact that more and more low-quality startups are coming up, while the funds to let these and other startups grow are impossible to obtain.
The infinite loop is always the same: young talents with a good idea are funded with some thousands of euros, but six months later, when all the money is gone, their activity fails. The consequence is that they won’t be able to integrate again themselves in the labour market, because they believe to be high-level manager.
What Davide wants to spread is, instead, that every single piece of the puzzle is fundamental for an activity: not only the CEO but also the developer or the community manager, values that Fondazione Comunica knows very well and completely shares; everybody works for a common benefit, so everybody is equally necessary: “we have to stop creating funds or startups that are exactly alike other existing ones; the market is global and our competitor is not the city next to us but the Chinese or American or African company with thousands of millions of investments. Let us connect each other, let us work together to create a system with a few but strong national players that can be recognise as valuable even from the foreign countries”.
