13 startups has been selected by the Italian Trade Agency (ITA - the Italian government agency responsible for promoting Italian companies abroad) as part of the 2nd edition of Global Startup Program (GSUP) promoted by the Italian Ministry for Foreign Affairs. Mind the Bridge will run the program.
It might not be as mainstream as tech, but SF has actually been a hub for the fashion industry. Marco Marinucci, CEO of Mind the Bridge, discusses about it with Rachel Fischbein, the SF Fashion Accelerator director, in the following Mind-the-chat.
It was 2010 when I eventually decided that the Mind the Bridge Foundation needed a proper home, as my kitchen, or, for that matter, my Google offices, were not enough to host all the activities we were starting to envision. Our first home was a handful of desks at what used to be known as the “Startup Pirates Cove”, the now-defunct (but never forgotten) Pier 38. Since then, our HQs have shifted several times, often in other San Francisco landmarks such as the One Market or JPMorgan buildings downtown.
