Pitti Immagine's E-Pitti Portal Links With Fashion Technology Accelerator

The goal of the partnership is to support young entrepreneurs operating at the intersection between fashion and technology.

STEPPING IT UP: E-Pitti, the portal of Florence-based trade producer Pitti Immagine launched with FieraDigitale in 2011, has signed a partnership agreement with Fashion Technology Accelerator, a consulting firm with offices in Silicon Valley, Milan and Seoul offering a business accelerator program to start up companies.

The goal of the partnership is to support young entrepreneurs operating at the intersection between fashion and technology.

“This with FTA is an alliance between research and industry,” said FieraDigitale chief executive officer Francesco Bottigliero. “It was born from the desire to discover new talents, help them to emerge and create new ways of communicating ideas to facilitate greater exchange. We want to give our support to Italian realities which use new technologies.”

“This is an important result for the entire industry,” said Fashion Technology Accelerator Milan managing partner Paolo Ivancevich. “E-Pitti is a key player both for the fashion industry and Italian startups, providing a fundamental launching pad for internationalization.”
