It starts with graduates and returns entrepreneurs. After studying in the USA how are born and live innovative businesses. Here is the program in a nutshell Fulbright-BEST promoted byEmbassy of the United States of America aimed at young Italian graduates, preferably in science subjects. Present and collaborating in the initiative: Florence Incubator, University and Municipality of Florence, Tuscany Region.
L'Italian University it's excellent, mind you, and ours entrepreneurial fabric it is on average lively, even if poorly supported at the system level. However, the international scope is a bit lacking and today you can't do business if you don't look at the whole world. That's why perfecting your studies in the USA, after graduating in Italy, can give you that extra gear you need to do innovation and business. Especially if the subject of study is "doing business". The important thing is that after studying, you return to Italy, without leaving the green ideas (in the sense of good) in America.
Fulbright-BEST is a program promoted byEmbassy of the United States of America, born in 2006 with the aim of stimulating the entrepreneurial spirit as the engine of economic growth in Italy.
