How we create startups

FoolFarm, an Italian pioneer in deep-tech venture building, collaborates with experts and Entrepreneurs in Residence to develop and launch innovative startups. Specializing in artificial intelligence, blockchain and cybersecurity, it has already created 9 startups. It is conceived as a factory that creates startups in a continuous cycle with a scientific method and efficiency unique in Europe.
With an initial investment of 50,000 euros per startup and a 36-month development process, FoolFarm combines innovation and specialized expertise. The Milan and Lecce offices are hubs of this dynamism, with startups always based on solid intellectual property.

Our Deep-Tech DNA

FoolFarm is dedicated exclusively to the development of startups in the Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) deep-tech domain. Startups are created through a proprietary six-step venture building process, a "factory-like" method validated by years of success.
Startups created in FoolFarm are always based on solid industrial patents, a prerequisite for launching new ventures into the market.

Our technology

Led by CTO Alessandro Redaelli, FoolFarm has established a world-class research and development (R&D) center at the heart of which is FoolCore, a proprietary platform with more than 40 unique technology modules.
This platform is instrumental in accelerating the creation of minimally viable products (MVPs), doubling operational agility and stimulating continuous innovation. FoolCore also facilitates the organization of hackathons focused on artificial intelligence.
The FoolCore platform stands out for its R&D development capability in advanced industries, representing a significant competitive advantage for entrepreneurs in the dynamic tech startup ecosystem. Key benefits of FoolCore include reducing the cost of developing new MVPs, doubling the speed of their creation, and the ability to rapidly generate new concepts by combining modules in innovative ways.
