Top Italian startups to follow in 2020

Italy has been a little slow off the mark in creating a thriving startup ecosystem but has started to catch up with success stories such as Brumbrum and Freeda Media. What are the startups you need to follow in 2020?

Our team of experts at Sifted — in partnership with — have chosen a list of companies we think you need to know about, with an added “Sifted take” on some to provide an extra layer of insight.

We have picked companies based on the money they have raised, how quickly they are hiring and how formative they have been to the startup ecosystems around them. If there is anyone missing from this list, or anything is wrong in the numbers, please let us know by email at

Please check out our jobs board to see some of the compamies hiring from this list.

NB The Dealroom data about employee growth is mainly from LinkedIn, and so is not perfect (people may not always update their profiles when they move jobs, for instance). But it gives some idea about the rate of change from 2018 to 2019. We have classed 0%-20% growth as “staying level”, 20%-100% growth as “growth” and 100% plus growth as “hyper-growth”.Logos provided by Clearbit
