Who We Are
"The best way to predict the future is to create it!" A. Lincoln
Build It Up is a no-profit association with the ambition of spreading the entrepreneurial spirit among the young Italian talents.
Founded in September 2012 on the initiative of a group of ESCP Europe students, the association has been set up as facilitator between the birth of an idea and its concretisation through the offer of free consulting services. In the same way, it pursues formative objectives addressed to young and promising students.
We address to inspired entrepreneurs who have a project still in a “new-born” or developing phase. We support them for free by providing them with a young and dynamic team in order to make their ideas grow and to obtain the necessary funding.
We concretely help start-ups overcome their obstacles during their first months of life and we give them the possibility to gain visibility among investors. With determination, we demonstrated to live up to these challenges, aware of giving a virtuous support (completely no-profit) to the entrepreneurial scene of our country.
In our view in Build It Up, the most important trade-off must go through the continuous enrichment of our associates and stakeholders.
The teams of the acceleration division active in various consulting projects represent only one of the numerous activities by which we pursue the professional and personal growth of our associates. Indeed, we organise educational events about start-ups and the entrepreneurial world in the best Italian universities.
Since 2018, we are present in the University Federico II in Naples and La Sapienza in Rome. Our goal is to considerably increase the number of students, universities and associates involved in our projects.
Among our conferences, seminars and business games, we have seen realities such as N26, A'pizza, AS Roma or Lanieri.
Through Build It Up, we find a way to connect talented young people with start-ups and innovative ideas, and also with successful enterprises and professionals.
