Our Community Success Stories

Eni and Talent Garden: new energy for data innovation

Eni entered Talent Garden Calabiana in Milan with its Open Lab to create connections with innovators. The multinational oil and gas company was looking to add a new dimension to its innovation path as well as becoming more competitive.

Eni worked with Talent Garden to build a complex and interdisciplinary project within the first Master in Business Data Analysis through a mentorship programme for the students, as well as co-organising meetups to aggregate the expertise of the data analysis community in Milan.

Clairy, IoT and sustainability: a project 100% made in Talent Garden

The idea of Clairy was born two years ago at Politecnico di Milano from a thesis project by Vincenzo Vitiello and Alessio D’Andrea, who designed a vase with the potential to fight indoor air pollution. Paolo Ganis – co-founder of Talent Garden Pordenone – joined the project, giving rise to an innovative new startup. Clairy’s mission is to raise awareness of green ethics and healthcare issues. Since its launch, Clairy followed an acceleration programme in the Silicon Valley, completed a successful campaign on Kickstarter, and this year received a €2 million investment from the European Union thanks to the Horizon 2020 programme

Giulia Pagan, the power of passion

Giulia has been selected for the Master in Digital Transformation for Made in Italy from more than 1,800 candidates, with the goal of becoming a digital transformation expert; driving companies forward in the Digital Economy, improving organisational processes, products and services and employing the most innovative digital technologies and methodologies.

Today Giulia works at PwC Italy’s Innovation unit, a leading business in strategic, legal and fiscal consulting.

MDOTM, from Talent Garden to Silicon Valley (and back)

MDOTM – the Fintech startup based in Talent Garden Calabiana in Milan – is the first to be selected for Google For Entrepreneurs’ BlackBox Connect programme.

Thanks to the partnership Talent Garden signed with Google, the team will spend a period in Silicon Valley at Fact0ry, an innovative hub in San Francisco where the best entrepreneurs around the world gather to innovate their businesses and lay the foundations for new partnerships. In the next few months, MDOTM is planning a capital increase to accelerate R&D and boost their sales network throughout Europe, building towards becoming a full asset management firm in its own right.
